The Inca Trail begins at Km 82 of the city of Cusco on the way to Machu Picchu, it has a distance of 42 kilometers.
During the path of the road you will pass through several altitudinal points from 2850 m.s.n.m. up to 4215 m.s.n.m., descending to Machu Picchu at approximately 2430 m.s.n.m.
The climate in the Inca trail is very varied. In the day it is usually sunny, dry in the first two days and wet in the third and fourth. During the night, the first two camps are usually cold, but the third camp is temperate. The rainy season starts at the end of November and lasts until March.
It is important to comply with the following rules for the visit to the Inca Trail:
Altitude sickness, so you are asked to keep in mind some recommendations such as:
It is important to present the same original documents (Identity or passport) with which you registered the reservation at the time of entering the Inca Trail, otherwise you can not enter. The document numbers must match the ones I make in the reservation.
If for any reason I change the passport number after making the reservation, please communicate before your arrival in Cusco or bring the 2 documents (the old and the new one).
If you wish to stay an additional night we transfer the return train ticket for the 5th day. After the reservation there is no option to change the date for this ticket (the change would have to be made personally when you arrive in Cusco), due to the policies of the train companies.
You will need to make a reservation for hotel night in Aguas Calientes for 4th day.
Optional: you can buy the Machu Picchu and / or Huayna Picchu tickets for the 5th day (not included in the package).
If you want to climb the mountain of Huayna Picchu the best is for the 5th day, for the physical effort that is needed, plus if you do for the 4th day would be paying 2 times for the entrance to Machu Picchu, as this income is included in the price of the Inca trail.
