- I am not very experienced hiker in? What if I can not keep up? How difficult is the Inca Trail?
Most people have that concern, but they do not care. Only in extremely rare circumstances does a passenger need to return before. Just remember what made you are able to go at a speed made it comfortable for you. Take your time, your own pace, and enjoy.
The Inca Trail is considered a moderate hike. It is not a technical hike but there are plenty of Inca treads, up and down, and altitude can affect some individuals by value. It is recommended to use a trekking poles and have them in the early evening before the trek.
- Are trekking poles really necessary?
For this trek more than any of the walks, we recommend the use of trekking poles, especially for those passengers with known problems of the knee. There are several times during the tour the need for its use, whether ascending a mountain or walking through immense sets of ladder of the Inca. It will help you with your balance and reduce the impact on your knees. Park rangers only allow trekking poles with rubber tips, because if it is metal it damages the road. You can purchase rubber tips for metal tips from any local store in Cusco.
- Is altitude sickness common? And how high is the Inca Trail?
It is impossible to predict that they will be affected by altitude. Its ability to adapt to high altitude is deterministic undermined by its genetic makeup and has little to do with fitness or health. Most people will have no problem as long as they take the time to acclimate properly.

- Is the Inca trail good during the rainy season? It is safe?
The trail is perfectly safe during the rainy season. In fact, some people like to go during the rainy season because there are fewer tourists. If you are one that does not mind the rain then it says’ A for it! “You’ll just have to bring good rain gear and water boots.
- What kind of weather can I expect on the trip? The temperatures?
During the “rainy season” (Dec 1 – May 1), you could have some rain at any time, but you can not expect it to rain every day. Often in December and January you may only get some continuous light rains or you could be fine and then a splendid afternoon, but in reality you could have days of good weather. At the same station, therefore, it will be noticeably hotter at night. The times of the day will get up to about 25 C degrees Celsius.
On the other hand, during the “dry season” (June – Dec) the days seem surprisingly like spring, with a bright and sunny sky, but it will be much colder at night. During the day you can expect it to be somewhere in the range of 20 C to 30 C degrees Celsius and at night it will be as low as 0 to -5 degrees Celsius.
It is always better to dress in layers at any time of the year, really. As you walk, change the poles, since if you walk with the garment wet, it is dangerous since it could catch a flu.

This depends on the station that is going to visit the citadel, for example in the rainy season it is almost impossible to appreciate a sunrise, since machu picchu always dawns cloudy.
In the dry season, if there is the opportunity to see an impressive sunrise in Machu Picchu.

The visits to Machupicchu have been divided into two schedules, the first is (6:00 am to 12:00 pm); and the second schedule is from (1:00 pm to 5:00 pm), whose ticket has a one-time validity, with a duration of only two hours with the guide, then you can stay a prudent time until the middle, if Your ticket is the first turn. This system has been implemented for reasons of care and protection of the world wonder.

- What are the advantages of doing a private walk?
One of the main reasons why the private option is requested afterwards is because there is no need to worry about what data we have set for the departures or if our exits have enough space. Their only concern is whether or not there are permits available. You can choose any date you want if the permissions are available.
