Experience of a life time

This is actually 26 miles long and on the second day after Dead Woman’s Pass you will want to quit but you summon the strength and energy to keep going somehow! This trek is a 100% positive life change. I broke down and sobbed when I made it to the Sun Gate because I was so proud of myself. You will be stopped in your tracks multiple times to have your breath taken away (literally and figuratively.) the end goal is obviously Machu Picchu, but once you’re there you’re going to already miss the trek and those beautiful Andes Mountains and will long for them. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend training for it and getting prescription altitude sickness meds. We did the trek in September which is the best month to do it from all the research we did and experiencing it. DO YOUR RESEARCH ON WHAT TO PACK!

One of the best experiences you can have. Beautiful hike, beautiful country, and awesome history to learn. Did the trail in early March, which is the tail end of the rainy season, rain every morning but would clear up soon after the sun came up. Weather is good this time of year for hiking but because of the season there is often clouds/fog obscuring some views. The accent up to the 1st mountain pass and decent on the back side is tough but that is the only real challanging part. I would recommend sticks to lighten the load on your knees, even if you don't have bad knees taking care of them is the best way to keep the hobby going for many years. I can not recommend this trail enough. Extreme Turbulancia was a great tour group and our guide Roberth was awesome.

Most amazing life experience! I did the trail in March 2018. It was the most rewarding and humbling experience.

The views were out of this world! Brace yourself for this challenge, but remember YOU CAN DO IT! If you worry about your knees, you may want a knee brace and hiking poles for this one.

A must-do hike. I did this hike about 10 years ago. I was unable to complete it after one day of hiking due to the altitude. If you are like I was (coming from sea level), I would strongly recommend spending some time in Cusco to acclimate. Do some hikes in the surrounding area (also beautiful). I saw people who really looked bad being carried out on the backs of Peruvian porters. At least I was able to walk back down and take a train to Agua Calente. Disappointed but there's always another day. Also be sure you communicate with your outfitter. I could tell I was struggling with the altitude even in Cusco but my outfitter just brushed it off.

The trek from km 82 to Machu Picchu is longer than what’s listed in the description here. The actual distance is 26 miles. We booked a four-day Trek with Alpaca Expeditions and were very happy with our choice. They offered amazing service for a reasonable price.

Amazing trip and even better than the pictures, I highly recommend to any hiker that wants a great hike. The Altitude is what kicked our butts.

Just returned from the most rewarding experience in my life. My wife and I did the trail for our 60th birthday, day two was challenging, but reaching the top of Dead Woman Pass and being one with Pacha Mama was well worth it.

Can I do this trail alone or is a guide mandatory? How long does it take to do this trail?

Amazing trek & entire experience! Wow! Too bad I hear it's becoming overrun by the masses of tourists.

Just beautiful. Hard, specially the second day, but amazing trek.

Machu Picchu was on my bucket list to visit, so when I saw the trip in a hiking meetup I knew I had to go. I am a day hiker so this was my first backpacking trip. I highly recommend Alpaca Expeditions. Fantastic guides, great chef, they really spoiled us so we could focus on the amazing scenery, learn about the Incas, the Quechua lifestyle, the different flora and fauna. This was such a beautiful hike and yes strenuous due to the altitude, the big temperature changes from morning till night and a lot of long days. We ended up doing 30 miles with all our side trips including Huaynapicchu. Machu Picchu was glorious from the Sun Gate but once you are there it's overrun by tourists. The trail is limited to 200 people a day so not at all crowded.

Completed the trail with Llama path and had an amazing time. Highly recommend that group and capped it off by hiking up Huayna Picchu after exploring Macchu Picchu. Went right at the start of the rainy season but only get some light showers on one day.

Did this for my 32nd birthday with G adventures. It was absolutely incredible, with ancient Incan ruins and porters that helped set up camp and cooked meals. I honestly liked the trail better than Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail was seriously a life changing event. We did a private tour with Alpaca Expeditions and couldn't be happier. Every person with us was amazing and friendly.

The trail was really hard for all of us. including my wife who just ran a marathon a week prior. In fact, one person didn't make it, she turned around midway through day two.

I highly recommend this trail for your bucket list!!

Requires some serious effort. Get a porter if you're not sure of your backpacking skills and try to go in non rainy season if you're scared of heights.

Did this back in 1999 before they started restricting numbers. Four exhilarating days, especially day two ascending to Dead Woman's Pass. Unforgettable experience.

I'm planning on visiting Peru in August to do this hike. If anyone wants to join me.
