Food & Drink
Healthy Organic Gourmet meals in all our inca Trail Tours To Machu Picchu
Daily Seasonal Food on each trip and Tours
Peruvian cuisine has only recently exploded onto the international culinary stage, but Peruvians have always been crazy about their nation’s culinary heritage, and they steadfastly cling to the traditional, multiculti flavors of home. Even in the face of modern gastronomic innovation. A range of climates, from high altitude to low, offers an impressive diversity of produce. Yes, that means potatoes over 3800 kinds but also a variety of corn and other grains, to say nothing of the country’s native aji chilies that are often puréed into sauces.
Coffee, Tea, Water, & Assorted Beverages
Every morning and afternoon, before and after your daily hikes you will find hot drinks and snacks in your dining tent.

Talk With The Experts
Huchuy QosQo FQAs
Huchuy Qosqo Trek to Machu Picchu is considered a moderate hike around Cusco Region. It’s not a technical hike but the altitude may affect some individuals. We recommend purchasing a Professional walking pole while in Cusco as it will help with your balance and reduce the load on your knees.
Related Trail To Machu Picchu Hiking Tours
You can do other tours to acclimatize to the altitude such as City Tour, Sacred Valley, and Maras Moray. This will make your tour adventure easier once you have acclimatized to the altitude. Nonetheless, the views are amazing and you will feel so accomplished at the end. The journey and your achievement of this hike are better than the destination. You will need very good walking shoes. In regards to clothing make sure to take waterproof/easy drying clothes as well as warm clothes because it gets cold at night.
This tour is a day shorter than the classic Salkantay Trek Adventure of 5D/4N. You will visit the exact same sites and will not miss any important landmarks. This tour is shortened from the classic trek on the third day in which you will have private transportation from La Playa to Hydroelectric town. From there you will board a train to Aguas Calientes. On the last day, you will visit and enjoy the magnificent Machu Picchu.
