What do I need to take with me?

Leave the trail as you found it should underpin your Inca Trail packing list plans – don’t pack things you intend to discard after use. To help conserve the trail you’ll need to make sure you add rubber soles to your trekking poles for instance. Non-covered poles have been banned from the Inca Trail by authorities due to well-founded concerns over erosion.
Weather in the mountains can change quickly and temperatures can vary vastly from day to night, so pack plenty of layers that will help regulate your temperature. Keep wet weather gear easily accessible. All trips with Best Andes Travel are fully supported, so porters will carry your main baggage.
Here are some suggestions for your packing list. Bear in mind there is a maximum weight of 6kg for your trek bag on the Trail. However, you can leave luggage not needed on the trek in Cusco.
