Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Metallic walking sticks are forbidden in the Inca Trail. But you may buy these bambu sticks at the beginning in Ollantaytambo or even at the Trail entrance gate. Don't pay more than 3 soles (1 USD) for them.
I had never used walking sticks, but they happened to be useful, specially in slippery grounds and when climbing down steps.
