Lots of uphill bits!
We went on a two day trek with ‘United Mice’ and were more than pleased with our guide, Walter, who, as a native of Peru, was most knowledgeable and affable.

At my age (77) could not do the 4-day trek but did the last day. And what a day - 9 hours, 22,000 steps, 167 stairs on my Fitbit!! We saw so much. Started off at 2050mts and got to 2650 at the Sun Gate....More
Oh, the crowds! And the lines! And the logistical nightmares if you’re a do-it-yourself traveler. Give yourself more time than you think you’ll need. Book way in advance as much as you can and pack a bunch of chill pills.
We walked the short inca trail starting at KM104. It takes a day and you arrive at the Sun gate late afternoon. That is ideal as your first view of Mapu Picchu is when it is not so crowded. Except for a couple of places...More
This was an amazing trek. The views were great and the trail itself covered a wide range of terrain. The trail is steep and much of it is steps. The steps are not standard heights or even heights. This makes the climbing and the descent...More
If someone ever visits Peru without going to Machu Pichu, they need to have a return visit. Yes, it is very high on the mountain, there are thousands of visitors each day, the people are locating more of the ancient cities and there is no...More

The Inca Trail is for sure one of the best hikes in the world. We had to book six months in advance as inca trail permits sell out. Our agency Machupicchu Center was excellent, we had a birthday celebration and our cook made a cake...More
I can't wait to do this hiking/camping trip again. 3 night/4 day camping and hiking the Inca Trail. Outstanding views of the mountains. Able to see Inca ruins along the trail that you cannot see from the train. Breathtaking and unforgettable.

We booked with Kaypi Peru Tours. They were wonderful.
My understanding is that tickets sell out quickly. I personally would not risk waiting until I was there for fear I would not get the opportunity to see Macchu Picchu.

The mentioned items will be fine. It starts out chilly but not for long as walking heats you up especially if the sun is out. You start peeling the clothes as the day goes on and then adding it back as the day ends.
