Inca Trail


I am off to South Amercia in March, can anyone please offer me some advice on how to do the Inca Trail? Like websites, someone to book through, if you book a package do you get to hire tents and sleeping bags etc... as i was not planning on taking these round the whole of SAm with me....??

We are coming to Peru from Columbia (also advice on how to get from C to P would be great!)....

1. Re: Inca Trail

A great website is www.andeantravelweb.com. They list approved tour operators for the Inca Trail and also give some good ideas for side trips. The most important thing is booking your Inca Trail trip as soon as possible. March is not a really busy time because it is still in the rainy season but there is not much time left. You cannot do the trail without permits and in the busy season it books out up to 4 months in advance. The Inca Trail trip includes food, tents, sleeping mats, and transportation but you will want to hire a sleeping bag. I would recommend bringing your own liner, actually I use my liner wherever I sleep!

We are going there in April and booked a 4 day trek via this website:

www.inca-trail.com.pe/. They take care of food, tents, etc. And you can rent a sleeping bag v. bringing your own. They are very nice and helpful.
