THE FAMOUS INCA TRAIL TREKS 

The INCA TRAIL is the most famous, well-known trek to Machu Picchu. The CLASSIC 4 DAY INCA TRAIL Trek is the most popular trek to Machu Picchu. It traverses original Inca steps ending at the Sun Gate (Inti Punku), the entrance to Machu Picchu city. The 4D/3N Inca Trail trek explores 7 archaeological sites along the way, a variety of flora and fauna, and is rich in history and culture. This trek is 42 km/26 m, goes up to 4,215 m/13,828 ft and is classified as a moderate trek. If you love the idea of trekking the classic way to Machu Picchu and don’t mind crowded trails and campgrounds, then the Inca Trail Trek is the one for you! This trail requires a permit and a limited number of people are allowed to trek per day. 

The SHORT 2 DAY INCA TRAIL Trek to Machu Picchu is a shorter and less strenuous way to experience part of the original Inca steps and still end the trail at Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate (Inti Punku).The 2D/1N Inca Trail trek passes 2 archaeological sites along the way, has a variety of flora and fauna, and is rich in history and culture. The 2 day trek is 14km/8.6m, goes up to 2,700 m/8.858 ft, and is classified as an easy-moderate trek with minimal altitude gain. If you love the idea of trekking the classic way to Machu Picchu but want a shorter hike and don’t mind crowded trails, then the 2D/1N Inca Trail Trek is the one for you! 

These are easy to moderate treks, not technical, with a few high passes and one cold night. It is essential to be properly acclimatized for this hike, spending at least two days in Cusco (or equivalent altitude) before starting. Minimum passengers necessary for trek departure: 2 people (1 person or private/custom treks possible with extra fee). Maximum trekkers per group: 10 people (special, private party groups can exceed maximum).

The Good Old Fine Print

Itinerary and Price Changes

Itinerary is subject to change. Peru is a developing country and because of this the company cannot guarantee that everything will go according to plan.  Events may occur that are beyond our control and could force us to change the itinerary (examples: strikes, road blocks, road work, landslides, natural disasters, inclement weather, flight cancellations, train problems, etc). The company accepts no liability for these problems but we will do our best to change the itinerary and ensure the smoothest trip possible.  Additionally, sometimes service providers in Peru increase their prices with little or no notice (example: train, flights, entry fees to ruin sites).  When this happens will we notify you of the price increase and tour cost change. Please see our terms and conditions for full details.

Travel/Medical Insurance for your trip

Travel Medical Insurance: is required to depart on any trek (including emergency evacuation coverage and high altitude hiking). We also suggest personal travel interruption insurance in the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances that may arise. Please be sure you have adequate travel/medical insurance to deal with any health emergencies or travel interruption, and associated costs, that might occur.  Killa Expeditions is not responsible for losses incurred due to any travel interruption (ex: weather/natural phenomena, missed/delayed/canceled flight, acts of war/terrorism, strikes, pandemics/epidemics, site or trail closures, etc.), passport, visa, family emergency, or illness/medical issues.

Please keep track of all of your personal items at all times. The company is not responsible for loss of personal effects. All trekkers will be required to sign an accident waiver and medical status form prior to departure.

Pre-Trek Briefing

All treks have a briefing the night before departure and all questions can be answered at that time by your guide or office staff. However, any questions you have about the treks before or after booking please feel free to contact us. We also have a lot of information about Cusco that we can provide, hotels and restaurants we can recommend and offer discounts to, and we can also arrange any special, custom travel needs you may have - just ask!

We hold most of our briefings the night before at 7pm (for treks and day hikes) in our office. We will confirm this with you a few weeks prior to departure.

Post-Trek Reports

After each trip or tour, your guide will provide you with a survey report to fill out about your overall satisfaction. Please be honest and make suggestions where you feel they are warranted, but please do be realistic and keep in mind you are in a foreign, developing country with different cultural values and not everything you have grown accustomed to and expect in your country is available here. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
