What to bring for the Inca Trail

One of the most important things you need to have for the trek is a good pair of well broken hiking shoes. If you are hiking the Inca Trail from October to April, please make sure that you have waterproof hiking shoes.

A sleeping bag made for low temperatures is needed for the trek. The first and second nights of the trek temperatures can be as low as 28ºF. If you do not own a sleeping bag including these characteristics, we can rent you one for the entire trek.

If you are carrying your personal belongings, please make sure that you use a comfortable backpack. If you hire the services of a personal backpacker, we will provide you in Cuzco a duffle bag in case it is needed.

The following items are strongly recommended for the trek: Thermal socks, hat, heavy jacket, light jacket and impermeable, long sleeve shirts, hiking pants, t-shirts, underwear, hat, gloves, sun glasses, tennis shoes or sandals to be used at the campsites, first aid kit, toilet paper, sun screen, insect repellant, flashlight, and water container. If you are travelling during the rainy season, a raincoat needs to be brought.

 Optional gear includes: Walking sticks (Rustic walking sticks can be purchased before starting the trek), sealable bags, wet wipes, energy bars or snacks, water purification pills, and camera.

If you need any kind of medication, please make sure to bring it to the trek.

By being in good physical shape and getting used to the altitude, you will help assure that hiking the Inca Trail is going to be the best experience of your life.
