Travel Guide

Travel Facts for 3 Day Inca Trail

Make lifelong memories with the adventurous three-day Inca trail hike! This spectacular journey is an experience not to be missed – embrace the breathtaking views and explore the ruins of legendary civilizations.

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.

YES! We recommend you reserve the Inca Trail, check available spaces on our Inca Trail availability page, and pay your entrance fee well in advance.

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.

See Inca Trail availability.

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.

Kondor Path Tours, an Inca Trail tour operator since 2014

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.

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Atv Tour Odin and Fernando were great as well as our driver Rene. Very informative about the city of Cusco. Enjoyed our tour with this company and these individuals who took us around. Great time! Highly recommend!!!
Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour.The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member.The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!
Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
Awesome Service and Tours Fernando and Patricia were SUPER responsive - usually responded to emails within 10 minutes!!. The arrangements they made for Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and surrounding areas were awesome.They were waiting for us at the airport and did everything we asked them. Our guide for the four days was Herberth and driver was Juan Carlos. Both were SUPER SUPER great. Juan Carlos was such an amazingly pleasant driver with cute stories. He also was a very safe driver. Herberth was very knowledgable and helpful. Took us all over the places with details about the history and details. We had friends who were not able to climb much and they accommodated us all.On the day we had planned to do rainbow mountain we did not feel great and emailed Fernando at 5am and he responded within 5 minutes with other options for us to do that day. Overall, if you are going to Peru and want to visit the historic sites, you SHOULD go with these people. They are SUPERB!!
Great memories for our family We went for a tour to the rainbow mountain, service was excellent and then we decided to go for another tour on the next day to the sacred valley, it was also excellent. Our guide was Fredy and our driver was Juan Carlos, two excellent people, honest and respectful. I recommend them. Gracias por todo, lo pasamos increíble.
Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding A group of 7 of us did a One Day Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding. Freddy was our guide and he was prompt and with us every moment of the journey. They were so accommodating to move the debrief meeting the night before because we had a food tour that evening. Freddy had so much energy, knowledge, and excitement to share with us about his native homeland. In addition, he made sure that we were well taken care of when one of us was actually sick from the altitude. It was such an amazing experience and Freddy made sure we got the best of it. Thank you! Highly recommend Kondor Path Tours.

MachuPicchu trek We had an amazing experience with the one day trek and the day after visit to the MachuPicchu site with Hober Guia, this guide is very knowledgeable of the history and culture, patient and kind and took care of all of our needs. The tour was arranged perfectly taking care of all small details. Very much recommend!
Maras Moray hike We recently did this hike with Bonnet. She was a highly experienced guide. V good English. Judged our ability well and made for a great day out.
MachuPicchu and Rainbow Moutain We worked with Kondor Path for two tours, of Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Everything they did was well organized, well documented, well communicated. The two guides and the driver were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. All were bilingual (English and Spanish). At Rainbow Mountain we rode horses to the base of the really steep part of the mountain (this saved some 7 km of hiking). But that last part was quite difficult! I'm glad I had prepared and gotten conditioned.
