Inca Trail Tour 7 days

Inca Trail Tour is a magnificent trip in Peru that combines awesome views, culture, and ancient Inca settlements; it is perfect for those looking to experience the region’s archaeological historian and cultural treasures in a short time in Peru; the trip includes visit the city of Cusco, travel through the Sacred Valley of the Inca, the 4-day trek along the Inca Trail and explore the stunning Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail Tour starts in the city of Cusco, and then continues driving through the sacred valley, trek the Inca trail and explore Machu Picchu.

Our Inca Trail Tour is the easiest route to Machu Picchu, since on the Inca trail its ascension profile is very gradual and steady, allowing for painless trekking for most of the way. However, due to its reputation as an easy route, Inca trail is often selected by unprepared, inexperienced trekkers. The trip takes seven days: two day of acclimatization, three days of trekking one day exploring Machu Picchu and the final day departure from Cusco. Inca Trail tour is ideal for those who are not confident in their ability to hike over steeper paths.

The Inca Trail Tour takes you to explore the city of Cusco, the surrounding sites, explore the Inca ruins and the natural beauties along the Inca Trail and the most important is that you’ll explore the iconic Machu Picchu. Walking through the Machu Picchu National Park, you may have the chance to see some interesting animals and birds. Animals like “Andean Bear”, deer and the national bird of Peru, the colorful Rooster of the rock can be seen.

One of the most daring treks in Peru, Inca Trail Tour is famous for its pleasant trek route. The route that goes via the high pass of “Dead woman pass” at 4,200meters takes us to the most pristine forest in Peru. This amazing trekking route takes you to the Inca ruins of Patallacta, Runkuraqhay, Sayacmarka, Phuyupatamarka, Wiñayhauayna, Inti Punku and Machu Picchu.

During the Inca Trail Tour we provide hotels of 3-stars category located near the main square which gives you an easy access to most of the tourist facilities like the restaurants, coffee shops, local markets and more; the hotels offers all facilities like buffet breakfast, hot water, private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, laundry service, heater in the room, and more; all of them for you pleasant and comfort.

Essential info

ESSENTIAL INFO FOR INCA TRAIL TOUR

The Inca trail tour group

Maximum size of Inca Trail Tour, 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. “SUNRISE PERU TREK” 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!

Responsible and Sustainable Travel

We are committed to offering low impact tours that benefit t the places and communities we visit as well as our travellers. It is important for us all to be aware of the delicate balance that exists in the variety of natural wonders you will visit. National Parks and monuments, archaeological sites and other sensitive areas should and must be treated with respect.

We have created a ‘Travellers’ Code of Conduct’ to help prepare and inform our groups of the various positive or negative effects they could have on a destination. This code includes following the ‘Leave No Trace’ ethic; this is an international campaign that is designed to help us minimize the impact on the National Parks and other wilderness areas that we visit. Our tour Guide will explain this code of conduct during the first night’s orientation talk and encourage you to follow it throughout the tour.

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 Tour, 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 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.
