Details

Classic Inca Trail Guide

The first day of your trek is long. You have to start early from Cusco to reach Machu Picchu National Park. You have to go through several official procedures before you start the trek.

  • It’s a 3:30-hour-journey from Cusco to KM 82 or Pisqhakuchu community where the gate for the Inca Trail is located. Start by 5:30 am so that you reach park gate by 9:00 am.
  • Around 10 minutes before reaching the park gate, the bus will leave you where you’ll need to check last details of the trek: like use the toilets, use the sunblock and the insect repellent.
  • After reaching the park gate, the first thing you have to do is register yourself with the park authority. Your passport number and the permits will be reviewed here.
  • After registration, the porter’s load will be weighed; it shouldn’t exceed 20 kg.
  • After that, park officials will check the porter’s license and finally check their backpacks to ensure they are carrying necessary clothing and equipment.

The whole process at park gate may take more than one hour. After all the proceedings, you’ll cross the bridge and finally start the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Don’t get tensed if you find that you are starting your trek only around 10 or 11am.

You have only 6 hours of trekking on Day 1. Before sunset, you’re likely to be inside your tent.

zzzzzz

Final Day to Machu Picchu

All routes on the Inca Trail go through the sun gate, the first point from where you can perceive Machu Picchu. You will see a great number of trekkers that day. This number can touch close to 200. The general tendency of trekkers on the last day on the Inca Trail is to start at 5:00am as soon that the last camping gate is open. If you start at 5.00am, with an average speed, you can reach the Inti Punku or Sun gate latest by 6.30 am. It takes a maximum of 1:30 hours to reach the sun gate. If you don’t want to be stuck in a line of 200 trekkers, then you can start late.

From Wiñaywayna (the last camp); the trail starts ascending gradually towards the sun gate. A one hour march will take you to the base of the Inca stone steps. Start ascending with gentle speed as the climb will take 20 minutes.

Once you reach the top of the Sun gate; you’ll see Machu Picchu and you’ll have enough time to take pictures; from here the trail becomes down for the next 30 minutes to proper Machu Picchu.

  HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE PER GROUP?

The maximum group size is 8 persons. Usually our groups are between 2-8 persons. SUNRISE PEREU TREK Specializes in SMALL; PRIVATE groups and provides a personalized service.

   HOW MANY COOKS/PORTERS FOR THE GROUP?

You will have 1 cook per group. The number of porters depends of the size of the group. For a group of 2 trekkers, there will have 4 porters, 4 trekkers will have 6 porters, 6 trekkers will have 9 porters, 8 trekkers will have 12 porters.

   HIKING TO MACHU PICCHU

The evening before you start your trek, you will be given a SMALL DUFFLE BAG to pack your clothes for the next four days. Your weight allowance is up to 6kg/12p. Your team of porters will carry your duffle bag for you, together with the food and camping gear. It’s important to be aware, that you will not have access to your items in the duffle bag until the end of each day, as the porters will always be ahead of the group. During the trek, you need a day backpack big enough to carry your personal belongings such as a warm jacket, a rain jacket, your camera, sunscreen, snacks, water, etc. Usually a 30 to 50 litre backpack is sufficient.

   ARE THERE TOILETS ON THE TRAIL?

Toilets have improved a lot in the last couple of years and all of the larger campsites have toilet blocks with flush toilets and running water.

   WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM UNABLE TO FINISH THE TRAIL?

In the scenario that you are unable to finish the trek due to a health issue, SUNRISE PERU TREK will assist you to the nearest town for help with transportation. We always carry oxygen on the trek for any respiratory problems in extreme cases; a helicopter pick up can be arranged at your own expense. (Travel insurance required). There are no refunds in the unlikely situation that you are unable to finish the trek.

Generally those who have to be assisted off the trail are taken to Ollantaytambo and if recover quickly.  They then continue the journey to Aguas Calientes (cost incurred by trekker) and visit Machu Picchu according to original plan.

   ARE WE GOING TO BE DROPPED AT OUR HOTEL AFTER THE TREK?

If you spend the night at Ollantaytambo before the trek, for sure we will pick you up!

   AT WHAT TIME IS THE TRAIN DEPARTURE?

It will depend on the train’s availability BUT the idea is to give you as much time as possible in Machu Picchu and enjoy the amazing views on the way back to Cusco from the train. Therefore you will take the train at 4:22pm. With this train schedule, you will have more than 9 hours for Machu Picchu

   WHY THE INCA TRAIL IS BETTER THAN THE OTHERS?

The Classic Inca Trail is the only trek that leads you directly up to the Sun Gate, having the first amazing view of Machu Picchu. This trail has also a historical significance because along the Inca Trail, you will explore many religious Inca Cities and it will take you through many different microclimates, offering amazing views of the Andes, the valleys, the waterfalls, the flora and fauna.

   HOW MANY DAYS DO I NEED TO ACCLIMATE BEFORE THE TREK?

It is advisable to have two full days in Cuzco to recover from your travel and to do at least one day hike to higher altitudes help with acclimatization. We can organize day hikes & other tours around Cuzco for you. If you have already been in another area of Peru at high altitude before arriving in Cuzco, we still recommend you have a complete day in Cuzco to rest, recover from your travel and enjoy the sights and sounds of Cuzco before departing for the trek.

To avoid altitude sickness on the trek, we recommend that you spend time in Cusco or in the Sacred Valley. If you have never been in high altitude, we recommend that you spend a day in the Sacred Valley because it is at lower altitude than Cusco city.

Essential info

ESSENTIAL INFO FOR CLASSIC INCA TRAIL

The Inca trail group

Maximum group size for Classic Inca Trail is 8 passengers. Passengers come from a range of countries worldwide (average of 3 nationalities per group) and many will be solo travellers. You will find you have many things in common with your fellow travellers, including a passion for discovery and a strong interest in exploring the National Parks. Classic Inca Trail is designed for adults over 18 years old. While most passengers are aged 25-55, every year we get many people both above and below this age range.

All travellers over the age of 70 will be requested to complete a self-declaration of fitness form prior to travel. Our tours are a unique holiday experience and much of your enjoyment will come from the team spirit of your group and the fun you’ll have together, as well as from the local setting. We cannot stress strongly enough the importance of bringing a positive attitude with you on tour; a sure guarantee to enjoying each and every moment, even in the adversity of the odd rainstorm!

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

Acute Mountain Sickness is also referred to as “Altitude Sickness”, and as the name indicates the illness is commonly encountered at exceptionally high altitudes, such as the summit area of the highest pass. AMS, once apparent, can be most effectively treated by immediately taking the affected person to a lower altitude. Often a drop as little as 500m will be sufficient. The symptoms of AMS include in the order normally experienced; headaches, nausea, anorexia, exhaustion, lassitude, rapid pulse, insomnia, swelling of the hands and feet and reduced urine output.

Trekkers can take precautions to at least minimize the severity of the illness, by maintaining a slow steady pace from day one, include an extra day of acclimatization at a high altitude and by drinking at least 3-4 liters of water every day. Preventative medicine is also available and you should consult your physician for specialist advice. Fluid build-up may cause a condition known as edema (or oedema), which can affect the lungs (pulmonary), preventing effective oxygen exchange, or affect the brain (cerebral) which will result in the swelling of the brain tissue.

The latter can be lethal if not treated immediately or if symptoms are ignored. Probably 40% of all people trekking the Inca trail will suffer to some extent from AMS. You should familiarize yourself with this condition and take preventative care. For more information on this sickness please click on the Action Guide to High Altitude.

Guides and Porters

Once on the Mountain, your well-equipped guides and porters will rank second only to your mental determination, in terms of important factors contributing to a successful Machu Picchu attempt. For the duration of your Inca Trail trek, your guide will be your advisor, he will lead you through the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, and he will bring you very safely. It will be important that you work closely with him and take note of his advice.

Porters and cook

The porters of Classic Inca Trail, do not only transport your gear and the supplies up to the mountain. Arriving at every camp site long before you, they will have already erected your tent on your arrival. In the evening they will also boil drinking and washing water and the cook will prepare dinner of a quality that has surprised many previous clients.

Useful tips:

Make sure for Classic Inca Trail, all your clothes and sleeping bag are packed in plastic bag inside the duffel bag, to ensure they stay dry in the event of rain, even if your duffel bag is waterproof.
  Something good Vaseline or Vicks Vaporub are good on the summit attempt.
  Moist air coming from your noise or on your lips will freeze and become very uncomfortable
  Sound travel at night and many people snore on the Inca Trail – bring some ear plugs to sleep with.

  At the beginning the trail is very dusty and sinus congestion is a problem with many hikers. Bring a good decongestant spray or tablet.

  For Classic Inca Trail, travel with your most important gear as hand luggage – e.g. wear your hiking boots in the plane – missing luggage is a common problem.
