Frequent Questions:

What Is the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu?

It is a part of a network of authentic Inca paths connecting the Inca Empire. The paths used to served for various purposes such as personal, logistic supply, trade, religious and military. Their frequent users were runners (chasqui) to deliver important messages accross the empire. The Clasic Inca Trail is the most famous part of the network nowadays since it leads to the "Lost City of the Incas". Its next attractions are other Inca sites that can be seen on the way and which are accessible on foot only. The sites are the following: Runcuracay, Llactapata, Sayac Marca, Phuyupata Marca and Winay Wayna, Moreover, the trail offers splendid natural sceneries and panoramic views. Camping is allowed in tents only, there are not any other constructions on the way. Due to its protection purpose, only humans are allowed to walk on the path so that Porters are employed to carry camping equipment, food and personal belongings. During these 4 days of hiking, participants usually make new lifetime friendships.

 

How Long Takes the Classic Inca Trail?

The Traditional or Classic Inca Trail takes 4 days to complete it since it is 43 kilometers long and it is located in a high altitude. For that reason, you need to be physically fit and get acclimatized prior the trek in Cusco (or, another high-placed site). All the trek is divided in to sections that need to be done during individual days (visits of archaeological site including). On the way, trekkers hike through the Andean mountains, cloud forests and outskirts of the Amazon Rainforest where Machu Picchu is located. On the last day, you enter the famous Inca citadel through Inti Punku (Sun Gate) and enjoy its private guided tour. After finishing the Inca Trail, participants usually return to Cusco on the same by train. Some trekkers like to extend their trip so that they spent a night in one of many hotels and hostels of Aguas Calientes - a town just below Machu Picchu. However, such a decision must be done in advance due to a train availability which is problematic sometimes.

 

What Is the Maximum Altitude of the Classic Inca Trail?

The Classic Inca Trail is regarded as difficult not only because of its length, but especially for its altitude. The highest point is called Abra Warmiwañusqa, which means the Dead Woman´s Pass in Quechua language, and it rising up to 4,200 metres above the sea level. It needs to be overcame on the second day of the trail.

 

How to Avoid High Altitude Sickness?

Such a high altitude can obviously cause a high altitude sickness (Soroche). Its typical symptoms are headache, nausea, lack of energy, vomiting, loss of appetite, sleeplessness and breathing difficulty.  To avoid it, every participant of the Inca Trail is recommended to spend at least 3 days in Cusco (3,300 m.a.s.l.) or another high-situated place prior the trek. Other prevention is to drink lots of coca leave tea, water and other liquids (not coffee or Coca Cola), eat plenty of sweets such as chocolate, biscuits, bonbons, etc. There are also medicaments against soroche; however, they might have side effects. A great prevention is to chew natural coca leaves during the Inca Trail. In addition, our Tour Guides have many experience of how to act in a case of soroche.

 

Can I Do the Classic Inca Trail by Myself?

Machu Picchu as well as the entire Inca Trail Network is a part of the Cultural and Natural World Heritage of the UNESCO. In addition, a use of the Inca Trail is subject to the strict Inca Trail Regulations issued by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture in 2001. Since then, it has been prohibited to walk independently on the Inca Trail Network! The trail can be realized only by means of either a travel agency or an official Tour Guide. Moreover, both need to meet certain requirements and consequently, they obtain an authorization!

  

Is the Classic Inca Trail Available All Year Round?

The Inca Trail is open 11 months a year. The only month when it is closed is February. Why February? As it is the peak of a rainy season and it is difficult and dangerous to walk on the trail. For that reason, this month is used to make a maintenance of the track as well as Inca complexes along the way. All works are ready before the 1st March. So, when planning your Inca Trail, you might book it any time, excepting February.

 

When is the Best Time to Do the Classic Inca Trail?

Basically, there are only two year seasons in the south of Peru. It means a rainy season and a dry season. The rainy season starts in November and finishes in March while the dry season runs between April and October. The majority of people interested to make the Inca Trail prefers to do so during the dry season. Nevertheless, arriving at Machu Picchu within the rainy season has also its own magic since everything turns green. Besides, the only month when it is impossible to trek is February (as mentioned above). Therefore, if you go on the Inca Trail during the rainy season, you have to get ready for it. For example, with a rainy coat, waterproof trekking shoes, waterproof backpack.

Why the Classic Inca Trail?

Test Your Body Persistence:

Put your body to the test with this 4-day demanding trek. Why is the Classic Inca Trail a challenge? Since some of its parts reach over 4,000 m.a.s.l., some sections include stone steps climbing, others require steep uphill hiking. Moreover, there are climate changes starting in the mountain cold climate and changing in to the subtropical jungle climate. That is why, you can test yourself until arriving at the Sun Gate (Inti Punku), a gateway of the Inca wonder – Machu Picchu.

 

Delight Yourself with the Most Splendid Andean Sceneries:

You will be delighted by the natural beauty and a diversity of the Inca Trail route from the beginning to the end. You can admire high snow-capped peaks, still esplanades, parched hills, rivers, currents, a dense subtropical jungle and fruit plantations. On the way, you will be carried away by bird singing and insect sounds while you will be fascinated by stunning orchids that decorate a big part of the track. Imagine these all sunlit.

Even a thousand of pictures cannot capture the beauty of the trail. For that reason, we recommend you to make space in your mobile phone/camera/video camera memory. Do not hesitate to sit back, meditate and feel the atmosphere of the Inca Empire. It will be a lifetime opportunity!

 

Experience Many Inca Remains on the Track:

Another attraction of the Inca Trail are many mysterious Inca Complexes along the track. These Inca remains are only accessible by foot and thus, only for those making the trail. The first Inca site to be visited is Willca Raccay. It is followed by the enormous Inca complex of Llactapata. The first day is completed by observation of Incan irrigation canals and agricultural terraces along the Cusichaca River. On the second day, you are able to admire the circular stone building of Runkuracay that served as a food storage and a resting point for Inca messengers “chasqui”. Later, you experience the small fortress of Sayacmarca. The third day surprises you by an observation of the most complete and best conserved complex of the Classic Inca Trail: Phuyupatamarca. In the end of the day, you camp near the mysterious Wiñay Wayna. On the last day, you hike through Inti Punku (Sun Gate) – a gateway of Machu Picchu. Then, the highlight of the Classic Inca Trail expects you: a guided tour of the New Wonder of the World with its exquisite architecture!
