How Many Days Do You Need in Order to Hike In Peru

The Classic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most popular combined routes. Each route varies in length from one to fourteen days, depending on the demand and availability of lodging along the way. All four journeys are one-way trips. You will generally travel back to Cusco using a combination of public and private transportation, depending on which tour company you use to make your trip reservations.

The One-Day Inca Trail Hike (1-day trek)

You can see Machu Picchu in one day if you’re short on time (but be prepared to wake up early!). You’ll take the train from Cusco to Kilometer 104, which is a location on the trail. Then, you’ll hike around 15 kilometers (9 miles) through the Sun Gate until you reach the Machu Picchu sanctuary. This option is great if you want to view Machu Picchu and experience a small section of the Inca Trail trek all at once.

The Lares Trek (3-day trek)

The Lares Trek, also known as the cultural alternative to the Inca Trail, is a three-day journey into the historical weaver communities on the eastern slopes of Machu Picchu. But don’t expect it to be a trip to the museum.

To glimpse into time-honored villages, you must earn access by obtaining passes that soar to over 15,000 feet and zigzag across Pumahuanca’s peak. On day four of your Lares trek, you may add another stop at Machu Picchu ruins.

Vilcabamba Traverse Route (1 – 2 week trek)

The trek to Machu Picchu is not for the faint of heart. At 65 kilometers long, this is regarded as one of the most difficult ways to see Machu Picchu. The route starts in Cachora and winds a mile-deep canyon to Choquequirao, or “Cradle of Gold.” The Vilcabamba Trail follows the same route that Hiram Bingham took when he rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911, albeit via more isolated towns.

The Salkantay Route (1 – 2 week trek)

The Salkantay Trek is the only Inca Trail option that lets you sleep in a comfy bed and take a hot shower at the end of every day’s hike! Though it still requires reasonably fit participants, The Lodge Trek runs along the Salkantay Trail through the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range but permits nightly rest at fully serviced lodges placed along the route. Machu Picchu is reached by following the trail to an elevation of 15,000 feet.

The Classic Inca Trail Route (3 – 5 day trek)

The Classic Inca Trail Hike is the most popular trek of the four alternatives described in this piece. It begins at kilometer 82 along the route, at the village of Piscacucho. The first day is a moderate hike through the Andean foothills, crossing the Urubamba River and arriving at your campsite in Huayllabamba. On the second day, you’ll ascend what’s known as “Dead Woman’s Pass,” which is the highest point of the Inca Trail Elevation at 4200 meters (13,776 feet). After that, it’s all downhill to the Pacaymayo River campsite.


This Authentic Yoga Retreat in Cusco is perfect for those who want a connection with Nature and at the same time like to explore new things. Travelers should be in good shape since you’ll be walking for Short periods of time, Hiking unstable ground, and going upstairs without any handrails.


It is suggested to have walking preparation at least 2 months in advance with activities that help strengthen the muscles of the legs with a good technique to hold your breath as this tour generally covers heights over 14,000 feet above the mountains in very rough terrain and very low temperatures as well as very high temperatures.


During your Pre-departure for this Yoga retreat, you will explore various areas including the Cusco City tour (Recommended )

This trip preparation is for acclimatization purposes; there are several day tour options such as Sacred Valley, Maras Moray, Walk with llamas, and alpacas Tour. The walks will be moderately difficult with options for more strenuous hikes. You’ll also get to see numerous archaeological sites along the way.

Specific Information About Trekking the Inca Trail Hike

Campsites or itineraries are subject to change, depending on the time of booking and availability of campsites.

Booking Inca Trail Hike

A scanned copy of your passport and a non-refundable deposit must be provided upon booking an Inca Trail hike.

Are you considering a hike on the Machu Picchu Trail and surviving the woman's Pass? If so, there are some things you should know before making your decision. This blog post will answer some frequently asked questions about the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu tours. We'll cover everything from how difficult the hike is to what the weather is like and what you can expect to see along the way. So, if you're curious about what it's like to hike the Inca Trail, keep reading!

The Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu runs 26 miles (42 km) long, is usually hiked over 4 days and 3 nights, and is tucked away in the beautiful Andes mountains in Peru.

The price tag for Machu Picchu Hiking Tours depends largely on the tour company, package, and guide you choose. Here are some of the general costs, plus actual specifics from our own recent treks.

Doing the Inca Trail independently is not an option. The Peruvian government limits the number of hikers each day. Everyone must have a permit and be accompanied by a licensed Tour Guide. And yes, through a series of checkpoints on the trail, they actually enforce it.

The general cost for the Inca Trail Holidays: $600 On average including The Inca Trail Permits, transportation to the trailhead from Cusco, porters, three meals a day, entry to Machu Picchu, and tents). You can find it even cheaper.

But besides the advertised sticker price, there are a few other things to consider when choosing a tour company: How many hikers are in each group? How often and how much food is provided during the trek? And finally, what’s the reputation for the company’s treatment of its porters?.


Even though we tend to focus on budget traveling, it’s good to remember that sometimes the cheapest option isn’t always the best option. Cheaper companies for the Inca Trail often have larger groups (15-25 people), provide smaller meals, and/or no snacks, and are crowded groups.


The Inca Trail is an ancient hiking path that leads to Machu Picchu, one of the most famous and popular tourist destinations in South America. The path is 43 miles long and passes through a variety of landscapes, including high-altitude forests, mountain peaks, and rugged terrains. Hiking the Inca Trail is definitely not for everyone – it can be difficult, challenging, and even dangerous at times. But if you're up for the challenge, the journey is definitely worth it!.

The hike itself, which brings you along ancient narrow paths deep into the Peruvian countryside and high into the Andean mountains, is gorgeous; perfect Incan ruins, cloud forest, and majestic valley views laid out like breadcrumbs along the way to perhaps the greatest end-point of any multi-day hike on earth, the iconic Machu Picchu.

Ready? Here’s everything you need to know before doing the Inca Trail hike rear all our advice, please.

Inca Trail, toilet quality

This is where the bad news begins. Inca Trail toilets are not the most hygienic, clean, or private affairs. You’ll be lucky if your toilet has a lock. On the first day, the toilets are usually fairly decent and clean. However, as you venture further along the trail the quality rapidly decreases.

By the next day, you will use a squat floor toilet. In which you squat over. The flushing mechanism often floods meaning that toilet waste is on the floor of many Inca Trail toilets. Be sure to wear your hiking boots when going to the toilet.

There is often no light and you’ll want to make sure you bring a headlamp for those night-time toilet visits.

This does not make for a pleasant experience! you can read How to use toilets on The Inca trail very good information for new outdoor adventures

Inca Trail Portable Toilets – option

My name is Cesar and as a Tour Guide, I believe the best option on the Inca Trail is to hire a tour company that provides a portable toilet all the way up. These are known as ‘toilet tents’.

Although not as common, this is probably one of the most important things I would recommend when deciding on what tour operator to use. You’ll probably have to book with a western operator and it may cost slightly more, but it’s definitely worth it! The toilet tent is carried by porters.

They are clean and only used by your group. You’ll be able to sit on a toilet drum within the privacy of a tent, and if there are any issues, your operator will sort them out immediately.

Inca Trail Availability - Hurry Up

The government has strictly limited the number of people permitted on the Inca Trail (permits are issued to about 200 trekkers per day plus 300 porters these 500 permits include 4 days of Inca trail). We recommend that you make a trek booking as early as possible we recommend 4 months in advance.

It is recommended to book the tour Inca trail to Machu Picchu 4 Months in advance, before booking flight tickets and hotels, because there are limited spots to reserve.

NOTE: Prices are based on two people sharing a room and do not include international airfare to/from your destination or internal flights during the Peru Tours. If you’re traveling alone, prices are available upon request but additional fees will apply. For groups larger than 8, please contact us as special pricing may be available for Family and Friend groups.

Depending on the date, international and local holidays as well as festivals may result in a surcharge. All prices are subject to change and will be quoted in U.S. dollars. For more information, please consult the terms and conditions for this trip.”
