One is the hardest hikes of my life but so rewarding!

A life changing hike. Pushes you mentally and physically. Poles are incredibly helpful! Day 1 helps you adjust to the higher altitude. Day 2 is the most challenging going up to Dead Woman’s Pass and descending from it. Day 3 started with seeing snow peaks and then was mainly jungle. Day 4 wasn’t bad. However, had to climb the monkey stairs. Worth the view at the end. One of the best trips I’ve ever done.

Truly a life changing trek and my all time fave. Select a good outfitter/guide and do your research long before hand. Use trekking poles. Would not have made it otherwise. Make sure your prepared for the high altitude.

"ln every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks." One of the most amazing experiences in my life, done guided alongside people I had volunteered in a school with prior. Incredible views, amazing high altitude peaks to be in awe of, challenging climbs and a journey that makes you feel like you have truly earned the beauty of Machu Picchu at the end of it. (note: done in Nov 2019)

Amazing hike. Should be on everyone's bucket list. Went in November, few hours of drizzle each day but otherwise not too bad, cold at night and warm during the day. Loved every second of it.

Did this trail in November. Definitely pack for cold and rainy (hail) weather if you decide to go during this time. The views were amazing. If you're visiting and are not used to the elevation, stay at least 3 days in the city before your trip to give your body time to adjust. Other than that, pack lightly, stay on the trail and enjoy!

Day one was meh. Day two was brutal as you ascend to Dead Woman’s Pass. Day 3 and 4 are bad ass. Use trekking poles!

This 4 day hike was the most enlightening hike ever! The final day was so magical! Day 3 was 360 views of the mountains! Day 2 is the most for elevation gain! Having walking sticks really helped on day 3 with all the steps down!

I did this trail a few years ago with a tour company called GAdventures in December. It was breathtaking. I never hiked prior to this trial and I did find it challenging due to the elevation however the views made it worth it.

Did this 2 years ago and it was simply breathtaking. I will be back for sure, the views and the people you meet are worth the trip. I struggled due to fear of highs but take it slow and you’ll be fine.

Such a cool experience. I did this a few years back with my husband & sons. I don't think you have to be incredibly physically fit to do this hike; pace is slow and mileage per day is low. Loved our guides and all the history lessons along the way. Highly recommend.

Did this trail a couple of years ago, just getting to a review now (lol). Incredible hike. Stunning, challenging, diverse. Perfect way to reach Machu Picchu

We hiked the Inca Trail towards the end of January, right before it closes for maintenance. Even with all of the rain, this is a very scenic trail with a lot of stops along the way. Definitely worth the reward at the end!

Probably the best and coolest trail I’ve ever done! I only walked from Machu Picchu to the Sun Gate and back but it was awesome! Enjoy!

My friend and I did this 4 day hike as part of our 2 week adventure. We went with (Alpaca Expeditions) and it was our first time using porters and they made it very comfortable and amazing meals. This trip is rugged but the altitude makes it difficult if you’re not ready for it. The views, historical sites and many animals we experienced are difficult to put into words. Our last day we awoke at 2:45 AM to be first in line at the park gate which opens at 5:00. Then it’s a quick trek to the su gate to await the most amazing site of the trip. The early wake up and the ( Gringo Killer) steps you to the gate are well worth it. I could go on and on. Just go!

It was nearly underwhelming getting to the sungate as there was so much cloud and fog so we got no views of the ancient city. But however the four days of breathtaking views and ancient ruins were definitely worth it. Dead woman’s pass will remain with me forever. A challenging climb but worth every step.

I don't really know where to begin. This was my first ever solo trek (without a guide). I did the 93 kilometers in 4 days. Ending in Aguas Calientes and getting to go up to Macchu Pichu was the cherry on top. This trek, all trail, takes you from the hilly agricultural plains of the Cusco surroundings to one of the most awe inspiring mountains I have ever laid eyes on (at 5400 meters alt.) This trek touched my soul and conjures up emotions I cannot begin to put on paper when I think of it. It is challenging. It is beautiful. It is a must for those who do not want to be restricted by the compulsory guided Inca Trail. It has everything one could hope for in a trek.

4 day hike with a train ride at the end back down. I recommend stopping. See where you truly are. Nothing like it in the world. A lot of stairs so I would recommend some leg conditioning before hand.

Best trek I’ve ever done, went in September 2019. Definitely can be dangerous (narrow, slippery, ice and rain, etc) so make sure you have the gear. Absolutely loved it and recommend to everyone. There are tour groups you can go with which I think is safer if you don’t speak Spanish and it can get confusing where to go. We certainly veered right off what looked like the path multiple times so I’m glad we had a guide. By the time you get to Machu Picchu on day 4 or 5 you’ve seen so many beautiful things that you think it won’t feel as spectacular as the trek but that the trek itself was worth it. Then you actually go up from Aguas Calientes to see it and it just fills you with wonder. There is almost a magnetic energy that just fills you up. Would do again.
