Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for only 385 dollars per person FAQ II

Is there an oxygen bottle available during the trek, just in case?
Yes, all our tour guides take an oxygen bottle with them along the trail and will provide oxygen as needed.
What is included in the boxed lunch? Do I have to carry my own lunch?
The first day of this trek includes a box lunch, which usually consists of a sandwich, fruit, and some cookies. As part of our commitment to sustainability, your lunch comes in a specially-designed, reusable cloth bag, which you may either keep at the end of your tour or return to your guide to be recycled. Please be aware you will be required to carry your own lunch during the trek. The bag is ideal for fitting inside or over a daypack, and weighs no more than two kilos when full.
Is there a direct train from Cusco to Machu Picchu? How long is the train journey back to Cusco?
The train travels between the town of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley and Aguas Calientes, a small town located fifteen minutes below the Machu Picchu complex. The journey from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes is an hour and forty minutes. (The return journey will be about three and a half hours, because the drive from Ollantaytambo station to Cusco is about an hour and forty minutes.) From Aguas Calientes, it is either a fifteen minute bus ride or hour hike up to Machu Picchu.
There is no direct train from Cusco to Machu Picchu. Although there is an additional station located at Poroy, about 25 minutes from Cusco, it is not always open. Train service from Ollantaytambo, meanwhile, is constant and reliable. Furthermore, taking the train from the Poroy station extends the total length of your journey between Cusco and Aguas Calientes to more than four hours, instead of three and a half.
Where do I have to be on the morning of the trek and where will I be dropped off at the end of the trek?
On the morning of the trek departure, we will pick you up from inside your hotel in Cusco (don’t wait outside in the street) and drop you off either in the Plaza de Regocijos ( next to the main square) or Plaza San Francisco (two blocks from the main square) upon your return to Cusco. You won’t be dropped off directly at your hotel/hostels.
It helps us if you try to stay in a hotel/hostal that is within a few blocks of the Plaza de Armas (Main Square). If your hotel/hostal is far away from the main square we will ask you to come to our offices with the exact location and name of your accommodation. If you are not staying in the city center, we may not be able to pick you up from your hotel. You must take a taxi to the center. 
The guide will come into your hotel and ask for you at reception. Because the centre of Cusco is full of small cobblestone streets, our larger bus/van is not permitted to enter certain zones in the city centre, so you will then have to walk a short distance to where the bus/van will be waiting for you. Traffic regulations prohibit large buses/van from entering the main square but usually after 10pm we don´t have a problem
Is there a minimum group size and what happens if Inka Trail Backpacker does not meet the minimum size?
We require a minimum group size of just four people. During the last few years, Inka trail Backpacker has always managed to meet the minimum group size for ALL of our departure dates and have never had to cancel any group departures due to group size.
If in the unlikely event that we do not reach the minimum required number of persons we reserve the right to combine our clients with another trekking company of similar cost.
What vaccines do I need for my trip? Will I need malaria pills?
Before traveling to Peru, you should consult your doctor. Routine vaccines, Hepatitis A, and typhoid vaccines are recommended for most travelers by the CDC. Some travelers may also need vaccines for Hepatitis B, rabies, and yellow fever. Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should also be advised that the Zika virus is present in Peru.
Malaria pills are not necessary for these treks.
Do you recommend a rain poncho, or is a rain jacket okay?
The rainy season in Cusco is generally from November to April, when there are near-daily showers and the ground—especially in trekking areas—is wet and muddy. However, there are occasional showers throughout the rest of the year; you should always pack a rain jacket, regardless of when you plan to visit. For treks, a rain poncho is highly recommended—since you will be walking through rain for potentially several hours without shelter, a poncho will be much more effective at keeping all of your belongings and your base layers warm and dry. Waterproof shoes are also strongly recommended.
What if I get sick on the trail during my tour?
In the event of illness or injury, we will offer all of the support and care we are able; however, you should carry any medications you expect to need with you (ask your doctor for specific recommendations or prescriptions for altitude sickness, traveler´s diarrhea , colds and sore throats, and pain or inflammation). If you are not capable of completing the trek, we will transport you back to Cusco, where you can seek medical treatment. However, the cost of this transportation is not included in your tour and you will be expected to pay the additional expense—for this reason, we highly recommend travel insurance for your trek.
Will I have a private bathroom in the hostel?
Yes, in all of the hostels that we book for you, you will have a private room and bathroom.
Do I need walking poles?
Although not required, walking poles are recommended for any trekkers worried about joint stress or balance. They also are quite helpful in providing stability and leverage on especially steep climbs and descents. If you do not have poles or are unsure how to use them, we are able to rent them to you and provide instruction.
What documents do I need to bring to Machu Picchu?
As of July 1, 2017, you must have your original passport to enter Machu Picchu. You also need to have your entrance ticket, which your guide will give to you at the appropriate time. The passport that you bring to Machu Picchu must be the same one that you used to book your tour and entrance; if you change or renew your passport between booking and your trip, please be sure to bring the originals of both.
Do we go to Machu Picchu for sunrise?
Your entrance time to Machu Picchu will depend on when you book your trek. As of July 1, 2017, there are two possible entry times to the site: 6:00 am to 12:00 pm, or 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Your ticket will grant you entry for either the morning or the afternoon—not both. The morning entry is significantly more popular and quickly sells out—unless you book your trek two to three months in advance, we cannot guarantee a morning entry.
If you book far enough in advance to secure a morning entry, you will start to hike up to Machu Picchu at 4:30am, arriving at the site by about 6:00 am—just in time for the sunrise!

Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu for only 385 dollares per person FAQ I

Which part of the Inca Trail does the 2 day hike go through?
This trail starts at the 104km train stop and ascends to the ruins of WiƱay Wayna before continuing on to Machu Picchu. Since we arrive later to Machu Picchu, you will not have much time at Machu Picchu on the first day. We will spend the night in the town of Aguas Calientes and return to Machu Picchu again the following day.
How many kilometers will we walk on the trek?
We will walk a total of 10 km / 6.3 miles.
At what altitude will the trek start and finish?
We will start the trek at km 104, located at (2,200m/7,2600ft) above sea level. The highest point of the trek is the Sun Gate, located at (2,700m/8,858ft). Aguas Calientes, where we will stay overnight, is located at an elevation of (2,040m/6,690ft).
What type of hostal does  Inti Sun Trek use for this tour?
We always book through the El Tambo Inn, which has three different properties and offers private, double rooms that offer comfortable beds, hot water for showering, WiFi, and breakfast.
 Can I book my own hotel/ hostal in Aguas Calientes?
You can choose any hotel to stay in Aguas Calientes – it´s a very small town – and absolutely can book on your own. This will reduce the price of your trek by $10 per person. If you choose to book your own hotel, make sure you tell us where you plan on staying so we can get you there safely
Can I spend an extra night in Aguas Calientes?
Of course. If you are ok with taking the same train out of Aguas Calientes that is part of your original itinerary, which is typically at 6:20 pm or 7:00.p.m that evening, than there is no additional charge to move the train back a day.
Will we have porters on this trek? How much should I carry on the trek?
For the 2 day Inca Trail hike we do not employ the services of porters. You should bring with you only the essentials: passport, rain pancho, camera, water, and a change of clothes. Your pack should not weigh more than 6 kg. Please also remember that you need to have enough room to pack your box lunch in your day pack  This box lunch is provided  by us on the morning of the first day.
When do I need to pay the balance for my tour??
We require everyone to be in Cusco for at least 2 nights prior to starting the trek, although 3 nights is even better.
You must pay your trek balance at least 2 days before trek departure. For example if your trek departs on a Monday you must come to our office before 7.30 pm on Saturday to pay the trek balance. This ensures that everyone in the group is well acclimatized to the high altitude before starting the trek.
How many days will I need to acclimatize to the altitude before the Inca Trail Trek?
It is very important to be well acclimatized before exerting yourself on a trek. This is why we require everyone to be in Cusco for a minimum of 2 days prior to regular treks like the Inca Trail. However, if you are doing one of our longer treks like the 6 day Combined Salkantay/Inca Trail Trek, you will need at least 4 days to acclimatize because these treks occur at much higher altitudes than Cusco. You can use this time spent acclimatizing to visit the city of Cusco, nearby Inca ruins, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Can I wear sneakers on my trek? Why do I need hiking boots?
No, sneakers are not recommended for the Inca Trail! The terrain is very steep, with loose gravel, puddles, mud, and other obstacles. You must have sturdy, waterproof footwear designed for this type of terrain, with good traction and ankle support. Be sure to break in your hiking boots before your trek! Wear them on several shorter walks or hikes before your trip, so that your feet can get used to them.
If you do not have hiking boots, or they are too bulky for your suitcase, you can rent them in Cusco for under one hundred soles.
Can I stay in the Sacred Valley?
Ollantaytambo is the best place to stay other than Cusco. By staying in Ollantaytambo, you actually get a little more sleep because we will be picking you up about 1.5 hours after the Cusco pick up time. However, please keep in mind that the pre-trip briefing can only be done in Cusco.

Five Reasons Why the Cachicata Trek to Machu Picchu is Better Than the Inca Trail.INTI SUN TREK

1. Trekking Off the Beaten Path.
The Inca Trail´s popularity comes with a price: hundreds of hikers, guides, and porters crowd the trail. Don´t feel like hiking with five hundred other people? The Cachicata Trek (also called the Inca Quarry Trek), which has only recently become known to travelers and receives barely ten visitors per day, is a far cry from the Inca Trai´s beaten path. Its campsites are silent and secluded, and you´ll be free to explore the trail´s most interesting sites at your leisure, with only your guide for company.
2. Photo Opportunities of a Lifetime.
Incredible sights and scenery are scattered along the Cachicata Trek, from views of the brilliant white glacier atop Mt. Veronica to an ethereal Inca doorway which stands alone on a ridge 3,925 meters above sea level. Whether you´re an experienced photographer searching for the perfect shot, or just hoping for an unforgettable photo with friends, you won´t be disappointed. Not bringing a camera? Watching the sunrise through Ollantaytambo´s ancient “Sun Gate” is still an unforgettable experience not to be missed!
3. Hands-On History.
The Cachicata Trek passes through many fascinating sites of historical significance, including the Sun Gate, the moon temple at Choquequilla, the Q´orimarca ruins, an Inca quarry, and more. With your guide, you will be able to enter and explore these former glories of the Inca culture, discovering their magic for yourself as you climb past former palaces, intact altars, and mystic carvings.
4. The Perolniyoc Waterfall.
The first day of the trek will take you to the region´s highest waterfall, the stunning Perolniyoc Cascade. Water plunges over one hundred meters through the lush mountain foliage towards the valley floor, while shining spray mists visitors and rainbows stay suspended in the air. Although one of the most beautiful places in the Cusco region, few travelers will ever be able to see this breathtaking spectacle; on the Inca Trail, there is nothing to compare.
5. Affordable Adventure.
Due to the Inca Trail´s popularity, permits and operating costs have become very expensive—four days on the Inca Trail can cost between $650-$900! The Cachicata Trek, meanwhile, can be done for under $700. Travelers searching for an authentic, high quality trekking experience that won´t break the bank will find that Cachicata offers the perfect alternative: more adventure at a more affordable price!
