"Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (4 days)" Peru Things to Do Tip by darthmilmo

Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos


My first major trek near Cusco was the cream of the crop. After looking around for ages, I signed up with Flamencos tour and did the famous Inca Trail en route to the infamous Machu Picchu ruins. At first I was disappointed since you had to hire a babysitter to take you around the historic trail, but in the end I do not regret it one bit. Guides and porters run the trail itself now so you only carry your own stuff plus your sleeping bag and mattress. The helpful porters carry the food, the supplies, and the tents. Our group size was 16 people from different countries and walks of life. Let me tell you though, we were one spoil group with 3 daily meals plus one tea time with snacks each day. Read more about this amazing trek in my travelogue.
