The Camino del Inca path through the Andes led to Machu Picchu. The Park is home to the scarce Andean spectacled bear (which you are unlikely to see), more than 400 species of birds, and a plethora of orchids and other plants. The trail is 43 km/27 miles of almost continuous stone stairs.
More than 350,000 people each year take the trip, making it the most popular trail on the continent and one of the most popular.
Due to the rainy season and maintenance work, the Inca Trail is closed in February. Machu Picchu is still open for other classic tours.
The trekking permits are limited to 500 per day (200 tourists and 300 staff (porters, cooks, and guides). Usually, this includes the 2-Day Inca Trail, 4-day treks, and the 6-day Salkantay trek. It estimates 160 hikers enter the 4-day Inca Trail, 25 on the 2-day tour.
You can use our booking form with all the necessary information. We will confirm the availability and make the reservation with the corresponding payment. Please fill in the blanks in the reservation form with accurate and complete information.
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.
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.
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.
Companies must meet specific requirements that demonstrate professional guides, good camping equipment, radio communicators, and knowledge of emergency first aid, including oxygen. Their license is renewed every year in early March.

You must carry your valid ID (passport or DNI) to enter the Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu. Bring your original passport and get the Machu Picchu stamp at the entrance.
During the Inca Trail, our porters set up camping tents with a sleeping bag just for you, plus an inflatable mattress. The porters carry all the camping equipment for you to enjoy an excellent adventure 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.
The shorter Inca Trail is for limited-time hikers who wish to hike more leisurely. 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 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.
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, ensure each porter takes home an extra tip.
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.
You have to be fit. It is a common misconception that because so many people make the Inca Trail, 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 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.
The maximum group size allowed is 16 people. Typically, group tours are between 12 and 16 people.
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 for the group.
