Full Day By Train Option W/ Inca Rail Trains Description:

For those really short on time the 1-day by train is the shortest tour available to Machu Picchu while still allowing nearly a full day to visit at the ruins. There are two options depending on which rail company and time schedule you choose.

You will leave Cusco at 4.00 or 5.00 am and go by bus to the Ollantaytambo train station to catch your train at 6.40am or 7.20am, arriving in Aguas Calientes at 8.20am or 9.00am. A guide will be waiting to bring you to your bus up to Machu Picchu. The bus trip up to the ruins lasts about 20 minutes and upon arrival you will meet your group for a 2.5 hour guided tour.

On this trek we provide horses to carry your food and the camping equipment, but there will be one cook and his assistant, two horses men and one porter who is cleaning the trail from what other hikers throw away as they go. You will have a personal allowance of 7kg for your gear. This will not be available during the day as the horsemen will be ahead of the group.


Most of our guides began as porters before they went to Cusco University and Institute where they learned about the Inca history. They are always training in order to be the best guide. They each speak English beautifully and of course all of them speak Spanish and Quechua, the Inca Language. They are all able to communicate with natives from around the area and of course he will have lots of history to share with you.


Definitely one of the highlights of the tour is the food. It is always fresh and most of it is organic. There is always a lot to eat and lots of options including vegetables, meat, chicken, fish and other types of protein and carbohydrates. Everyone sits down to eat together and we go out of our way to accomodate all dietary requirements including vegetarian options and any food allergies. We do not provide any alcoholic drinks on the trek but if you would like you can bring your own.


We provide 4 man tents for only 2 people and foam mattresses for everyone. Our dining equipment includes a spacious dining tent, tables and chairs, plates and utensils. We do NOT supply sleeping bags, air mattresses or walking sticks, but all can be rented from Puma Path. We bring an extra blanket for all our hikers for those especially cold nights. Just ask and your guide will provide you with this. Please note that if you are over 1.95 meters / 6´4" tall then you won´t be able to rent a sleeping bag in Cusco. In this case it is recommended to bring your own.


We try to treat our hikers, our porters and all the local people from the villages with the upmost respect. We travel in small groups to give personalized tours to each traveller, we pay good salaries to our porters and follow the porters law. We provide all our porters with their hiking gear such as shoes, pants, jackets, t-shirts, hats, sleeping bags and most importantly, with health insurance.


The Inca Trail is certainly not easy but you do not need to be an athlete or a trekking expert to complete it. Fitness is naturally important but the Inca Trail is the kind of trek that anyone with a positive attitude and determination can do. Obviously the more fit you are the more you will enjoy the trail and the more chance you will have to take in the scenery and appreciate the Inca ruins dotted along the way. If you do not exercise regularly, it is advisable to do some extra walking or some kind of aerobic activity in the months leading up to your trip. Many people worry whether they will be able to cope physically but complete failure is rare and would usually only result from severe altitude sickness or a person lacking even a basic level of fitness. People of all ages (from teenagers to pensioners) complete the trek and age itself is no barrier if you are positive minded and live an active lifestyle. Before departing for your tour, we recommend visiting your doctor who will be able to provide you with more information.


During the Inca Trail trek your main luggage will be stored in Cuzco and you will receive a small duffle bag at your Inca Trail briefing (briefings are normally set for the evening before you start the trek) to pack clothes for 3-4 days. Your team of porters will carry these bags together with the food and equipment for the trail. Please note that you will not have access to these items until the end of each day as the porters will always be ahead of the group, you should therefore bring a day pack in which you can carry personal belongings such as your camera, water and sun screen etc. By Peruvian law the duffle bag carried by the porters must not weigh more than 7kg (14pounds). You can either store your luggage at your hotel or you can leave it with us.

Salkantay Trekking FAQS

1.How difficult demanding Salkantay trekking?
Trekking in the Salkantay region is quite challenging, there’s a lot of up and down trekking and the altitudes can be quite high, average trekking days here are longer than most other trekking areas in Peru. And it is recommended that you have a good level of fitness to fully enjoy your trek in this region.
2.How much does a trek cost to the Salkantay Region?
Trekking costs depend on a large number of factors, so it is not possible to give any general figures. However we believe our prices are unbeatable in Peru. And once we know the number of people, the date, the trek itinerary and the requirements, we will be happy to send out a cost estimate or quote without any obligation.
3.What is the minimum number of people for a trek?
Usually a trekking group consists of 10 or more trekkers, but we are very happy to guide 3, 2 or even just 1 trekker through our beautiful mountains with a reasonable price.
4.Will I get altitude sickness?
On all our treks we allow time for acclimatization and this greatly reduces the risk of altitude sickness. While trekking to this region you will take acclimatization rest days. And should you have any difficulty or if you have signs of altitude sickness, we will quickly descend to spend the night at a village or campsite at a lower altitude. We do advise you to drink plenty of water. But rest assured that our guides are also qualified to deal with such situations should they arise.
5.Can I drink the local water while trekking to Salkantay Region?
We do not recommend drinking from streams or village taps in the mountains. We do recommend bringing along your own water bottle and treating the water with tablets. There are safe drinking water stations along most trekking routes. If bottled water is not available, we boil any water used for drinking or cooking.
6.Am I likely to get sick?
On camping treks our cook does all the food preparation and he is very well trained in food hygiene. We have never had any cases of sickness due to the food or drink on camping treks. We do rely on local food and drinks. There have been cases of trekkers with stomach sickness and diarrhea which is common in travellers. But our guides can supervise food and drink preparation and this greatly improves the level of hygiene. We always carry a comprehensive first aid kit, which includes drugs for most common disease.
7.How many hours do I need to walk per day while doing Salkantay Trek?
In Salkantay, most of the trekking routes need 7 to 8 hour walking in a one day. For trekking you need to walk until you reach the camping site designated in your itinerary so this can vary per person. But we aim for around that figure.
8.What sort of food can I expect during Salkantay trek?
Our chef cooks a delicious range of mostly vegetarian food. Mostly noodles, potatoes, eggs, bread, soups, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – (eat some every day). In many larger villages you may find some meat on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot drinks, as well as soft drinks.
9.Whichever option you choose, you can be assured that the food is fresh, nutritious and tasty?
Please, If you have any special dietary requirements please advise us in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
10.Are the trip destinations safe?
Security and safety are a high priority of our company, however there are risks associated with adventure travel that you should consider before booking. Our trip operators constantly monitor their areas of operation and will cancel or re-route a trip if they feel a destination is unsafe. The decision to travel to a particular country or region is a personnel one.

Fantastic 5 days, 4 night trek to Maccu Pichu Guide, Miguel was the amazing. Knowledge, care, attitude. All 150% Chefs on the trek were sensational. Honestly are like a king and queen all day.
Gabriela Davis from United Kingdom
We've had a great trek with a small group. There were only 4 of us. On the way we saw groups with over 15 persons...not what I would have wanted. They don't put people from different agencies together.
Rick Salter from Austria
