Trip Info

Weather on trek

Trekking through the Inca Trail is an altitude activity, therefore, the weather may be cold and unpredictable depending on the season. In the dry season (May – November) the temperature may vary between 5 C / 41 F to 3 C / 37.4 F. in the early mornings and at night; during the day, it can get quite warm if the sun is out, anywhere from 15-24C. / 60-75F. Keep in mind that if the weather is cloudy or rainy, it will be windy and colder and it may change instantaneously particularly at the high passes on the trek so you should bring enough layers to adjust to the fluctuating temperatures and weather conditions as well as appropriate sun protection.

Pre-departure notes

It is highly recommended to spend at least two days before any trekking activity acclimating to the altitude in the Andes; drinking enough water and avoiding heavy meals also help you to adapt quickly to the environment. Cusco is an Andean city located at 3,399 m. / 11,151 ft. We suggest doing short day tours in and around the city.

It is imperative to attend the pre-trek briefing a day before the scheduled date of the trip, usually set at 17:00 hrs. See the itinerary instructions section of the tour and its details. For additional information, speak directly to your trekking guide.

Note on Itinerary

The current itinerary described accurately expresses the trekking activities we offer. However, please notice that due to circumstances such as natural disasters, weather conditions, strikes, and others that may force us to deviate from our original plan, in which case, we will provide you with the best alternative option available, so then you won’t miss the wonderful experience. 

Note on Price

Please note. All our trekking tours, and the Inca trail tours, include a duffle bag, which means you can take additional clothing with your sleeping bag and mattress for the trek; these must be 7 kg/14 pounds max weight.

All Inca trail trekking tours are run with a group of a trekking team (our porters), who are appointed to carry all camping equipment during the hike; the number of porters in the group is according to the number of travelers booked for the tour; for more details see Inca Trail FAQs.

Gratuities for the trekking crew

One of the greatest ways to express your gratitude to your trekking crew for everything they do to help you make your adventure trip is by tipping. This is a tradition of years since the beginning of the tourism industry in our region, a personal appreciation based on the team’s effort during your adventure experience. Giving gratuities might not be customary in your country, however, it’s of the utmost importance to those who will be taking care of you during the trip. Tipping inspires excellent service and is an ingrained feature in the tourism industry on many Kuntur Peru Travel destinations. Of course, you are free to tip as much as you wish, depending on your perception of the quality and length of your trip. Remember, tipping is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.

Usually, participants in a group gather the tipping money for the guides, porters, and cooks; you can either do it individually, or your trekking guide will offer to collect the money and tip as a group. Tipping your tour guide is more personal and should be decided based on your relationship, quality, and length of service with them and is done separately from the group or could be done individually, this generally happens once you end the tour at Machu Picchu Citadel or Machu Picchu town.

Porters: Each porter is $20 – $40 USD or the equivalent in Soles (from all the group or participants)

Trekking Chef: $35 – $70 USD or the equivalent in Soles (from all groups or participants)

Trekking guide: The amount is an entirely more personal preference, however, as a guideline, $40 -80 USD per person can be used.
