When I signed up to do the Inca Trail, I didn’t really know what Machu Picchu was, I didn’t know much about Peru, and it was more than 10 years ago since I last did any real hiking.
That in mind, I researched the hell out of the trail, polled my friends, and even did an extremely expensive Colca Canyon tour the week prior to train my body.
This guide will tell you what I packed, preparation tips, trail stuff and things you wish people told you, but rarely do. I hope it helps you on your own journey through the mountains.
