  • FAQs about the Inca Trail

    The Inca Trail is one of the most popular treks in the world, and most definitely the most sought after in Peru. Perhaps you’ve already booked your space or you’re still umming and ahhing.

    Whatever the case, you likely have a lot of questions about the trek and how to plan the perfect trip. Don’t worry. We’ve scoured the internet and taken into consideration the questions we receive from our trekkers to compile the ultimate list of Inca Trail FAQs.

    Salkantay Trekking rates the Inca Trail as a moderately difficult trek. This is because you’ll be hiking at high altitudes and along tough uphill climbs at some points. However, other days aren’t so challenging, which is why the overall difficulty rating is moderate.

    We recommend you book your Inca Trail place as early as possible. Most days sell out at least 3 months in advance for the low season (Nov–Mar) and then 6 months in advance for the high season (Apr–Oct).

    Even if you book before these suggested periods, we cannot guarantee your place on the trail as there’s no knowing exactly when they’ll sell out.
