Why the cost is so different from other companies?: Prices range from $500 to $1600, in other words, if you pay $500 you’re making each porter carry over 35kg/70pounds that’s unfair if you pay $850 – $1100 you are a responsible traveler because your porter and other staff will be grateful, and if you pay more than $1500 most probably that company is a foreigner one and most probably will outsource you a local company (tour operator). 

Most of the Inca Trail companies still abuse their staff especially in wage, weight, and welfare, so the amount you pay reflects a lot on that. Please, take your time to research before choosing any of them. 

Type of meal: Plenty of food with options for vegetarians, gluten-free, lactose-free, etc. Food is Awesome! 

Gear: The best of the trail, roomy Black Diamond / North Face Summit Series tents, Therma rest mattress (air mattresses) with pillows, dining tent with chairs table, kitchen tent, and toilet tent just for our travelers. 

Who carries my extra personal items?: Don’t worry, your personal porter carries 7 kg / 14 pounds of your personal items, so you hike just with your rucksack. 

How is like my Trek Leader? Our Peru Summit professional Tour Leaders / Trek Leaders with a deep knowledge of the route, destination, and a focus on customer service make all the difference in the route. Our Tour Leaders are experts in Inca history, nature, birding, gastronomy, local language (Quechua), local traditions, emergency procedures, etc, with a deep connection to Peru’s enthralling traditional culture. Our Tour Leaders / Trek Leaders have the warmth, knowledge, courage, endless energy, and that special “it” factor that transforms a journey into an unforgettable experience. 

Weather: Between May and October mostly sunny with some light rainfalls on days 2, 3, and 4. Between November and April with rainfalls on some days, if come on these months be prepared, although weather in Andes mountains is totally unpredictable, it changes a lot. 

What if I don’t find availability on the date I want? You have several options to take, 1, you can opt to hike the shorter version of the Inca Trail and see Machu Picchu twice, overnight in Machu Picchu town. 2, you can opt to hike one of the alternative trails to reach Machu and combine with the train on some sections like Salkantay Trek,  Lares Trek,  Ancascocha Trek,  Inca Quarry Trek,  Ausangate Trek,  Lares Trek Plus Short Inca Trail, and  Choquequirao Trek.

Responsible Travel? Let’s make this world a better place for everyone and for everyone that lives in it! our GREEN ENGAGE way of traveling with us believes strongly in low impact or rather a positive impact on tourism. The responsible business has always been at the heart of what we do. These values are not more than just words, they are ingrained in the culture and philosophy of our crew, daily operations of Peru Summit Adventures trips, and at our office too.

Why Travelers Choose this Hike with Us?

We do like to do our hikes a little bit different than others or conventional operators that way to experience a true journey & adventure along the trail likewise the team that goes with us as well. We understand the hard work our Quechua porters face along the trail just to make your hike/ experience as enjoyable as possible by providing us their support, how? by carrying our clothes, cooking our gourmet meals, setting up our tents, and for years, many have done this under appalling working conditions. However, all this could be different with us. We are committed to ethical conditions which are within our Responsible Travel guidelines. See below some of the Pros you have when choosing to hike with us.

– We organize our hikes only in small groups with a minimum of 2 people max 8 people to experience the trail in-depth, that’s why we hike away from crowds and set up our tents in quieter places.

– We do not put our porters aside, they are part of the experience along the trail, you will have chance to share some coca leaves with them, give them some hi-fives, and they will share some stories, tales from their hometown at the campsites with you. This is an experience that involves everyone on the trail.

– After an arduous day, our porters deserve to sleep in a decent tent with a pad, that’s what they get for from us. We send these gears along with the travelers’ gears from our warehouse. We are totally against that our staff might sleep in precarious places like toilets floor or somewhere else at cold night temperatures.

– Peruvian labor law mandates that all porters be paid a minimum wage of 45 soles per day (about $14). We do pay them more than average, not even minimum wage. We do know that their work is tough (about 15 hours), most of them have large families or the youngers want to keep studying at local institutes and getting paid in a reasonable and decent way is very important to us to achieve their goals or improve their family’s welfare.

– Food/ nourishment is a must for our porters. We are against that they eat some leftovers of our travelers or eat only pasta and rice, they do deserve a proper meal because they spend the day carrying demanding loads up and down over mountains. If our travelers eat some chicken, beef or any other meal type, our porters do as well.

– By Peruvian labor law, porters must carry no more than 20 kilograms (44 pounds), including 5 kilograms (11 pounds) allowance for their personal belongings. Peru Summit Adventures porters carry 18 kilograms (39 pounds) plus 4 kilograms (8 pounds) of personal belongings. We try our best that our porters carry less than that weigh.

We do our very best effort and are committed to change the things on the trail to make a better place for everyone that is part of us. We know all these issues because we experienced unfair treatment when we worked as support staff years ago for other companies. Be an explorer be a local at least for 4 days and mingle with our Quechua Andean porters. Come join us and make a great difference by hiking with us, it’s the only way to discover what we are really doing it.

Why else do the travelers choose this hike with us?
