- Why the cost is so different with 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 $800 – $1100 you are a responsible traveler because your porter and other staff will be grateful, and if you pay more than $1100 most probably that company is a foreigner one and most probably will pass you at a different local company. Most of the Inca Trail companies still abuse of their staff specially in wage, weigh, and welfare, so the amount you pay reflects a lot on that. Please, take your time to research before to choose any of them.
