How long is the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu?

The total distance covered on the Inca Trail is 42 km (26 miles). The Government assigns campsites along the Inca Trail, so it is difficult to determine the distance to be covered in a day, but expect to walk 6 to 9 hours daily.

Will I be affected by altitude sickness?

Altitude or mountain sickness usually occurs very few to our visitors; Kondor Path Tours recommends good physical preparation and acclimatization for 02 days in Cusco.

You should avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and drink plenty of water or take some pills for altitude sickness pre-registered by your doctor. If the illness is more severe, we must return to the point of care to be treated.

Is it possible to do without an agency to make the Inca Trail?

Since June 2002, independent hikers have been prohibited on the Inca Trail. Regulations state that a qualified professional guide must accompany each hiker. The Government controls access to Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail.

Are there alternative Hikes to the Inca Trail?

Will I be able to drink purified water during the Inca Trail?

Our staff, always thinking about the environment, will carry the necessary water for the 3-day trek, so we recommend bringing bottled water. Our team will provide you with boiled water for breakfast and lunch. You will also have water to wash your hands. Collecting water from rivers or streams is possible, but it is necessary to use purification tablets.

What is the 3-day Inca Trail like?

The shorter Inca Trail is for those hikers with limited time who wish to do a more leisurely hike. This hike starts at km 104 and ascends to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna before continuing to Machu Picchu.

As you do not have much time in Machu Picchu on the first day, most people spend the night in the town of Aguas Calientes and return to Machu Picchu again the next day.

This trail is subject to Inca Trail regulations, and you must book trekking permits well in advance.

What is the cost of an extra porter, and how much should I tip for the Inca Trail 3 Days?

Porters carrying your items can be hired separately, costing between US$130 and US$150 for the 4-day trek. If the whole group is satisfied with the service, try to ensure each porter takes home an extra tip.

When is the best time to hike the Inca Trail for 3 Days?

The climate in Cusco: The mountainous region of Cusco has well-defined winter and summer seasons. Winter days (June to August) are very sunny and warm, but the temperature drops to almost zero at night. The rainy season is from January to March. December and January are two of the most pleasant months for hiking.

How difficult is it? Do I have to be physically well prepared for the Inca Trail 3 Days?

You have to be fit. It is a common misconception that because so many people make the Inca Trail, then it must be accessible. It is not. The trail is 45 km (26 miles) long and involves a lot of physical effort. On the second day, you climb almost 1200 m (about 4000 ft). Combined with the high altitude (lack of oxygen) and extreme weather (you can easily get sunburned from the high altitude during the day, and temperatures can drop to below freezing at night), the hike can be hard work.

However, all this suffering can make the final arrival at Machu Picchu even more enjoyable.

How many people are in the groups?

The maximum group size allowed is 16 people. Typically group tours are between 12 and 16 people.

Are there restrooms along the Inca Trail 3 Days?

Yes, restrooms are, but they are fundamental with little water. If there are no restrooms at the campsites, our staff will set up a restroom tent just for the group.
