Overview

Inca Trail 6 Days to Machu Picchu

Enjoy an unforgettable 6-Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu via the Salkantay Trek. This version of the classic trek is truly unique, with the first two days following a common Salkantay trail. On the third day, you will embark on a less-traveled trail that connects to the Classic Inca Trail, even allowing you to hike part of it.

The trail takes its name from Mount Salkantay, which at 6,271 meters is higher than any mountain in North America. Along the way, you will see breathtaking blue lakes, stunning glaciers, cloud forests and rainforests. The final stretch of the journey features a more typical Inca Trail ecosystem, with lush green vegetation and numerous archaeological ruins. This route perfectly combines Peru’s two most popular routes.

Recommendations

Recommendation 6-Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

He aquí algunas recomendaciones que le ayudarán a prepararse para el Camino Inca:

  • Entrene con antelación: El Camino Inca implica caminar y caminar mucho, por lo que es esencial entrenar de antemano para asegurarse de que está físicamente preparado. Ejercicios cardiovasculares, como correr o montar en bicicleta, y ejercicios de fuerza, como sentadillas y estocadas, pueden ayudarle a desarrollar resistencia y fuerza.
  • Aclimátese: El Camino Inca alcanza grandes altitudes, por lo que es crucial pasar algún tiempo aclimatándose a la altitud antes de comenzar la caminata. Pase unos días en Cuzco, situada a 3.400 metros sobre el nivel del mar, antes de emprender el Camino Inca.
  • Empaque adecuado: Asegúrese de llevar el equipaje adecuado para el viaje. Necesitará calzado cómodo para caminar, ropa ligera, una chaqueta impermeable y capas de abrigo para las noches frías. No olvide llevar sombrero, crema solar, repelente de insectos y un botiquín de primeros auxilios.
  • Manténgase hidratado: Es esencial mantenerse hidratado durante las excursiones, sobre todo a gran altitud. Lleve una botella de agua reutilizable y recárguela en los puntos de agua del sendero. También puedes llevar pastillas potabilizadoras para asegurarte de que el agua es potable.
  • Respete el medio ambiente: El Camino Inca es Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la UNESCO, y es importante respetar el medio ambiente siguiendo las normas y reglamentos establecidos por las autoridades del parque. No tire basura, permanezca en los senderos designados y evite dañar las antiguas ruinas.
  • Contrate a un operador turístico de confianza: El Camino Inca sólo puede recorrerse con un operador turístico autorizado. Investigue y elija un operador turístico de confianza con guías experimentados, equipo de acampada cómodo y comida de calidad.
