During your Alternative Trek or Inca Trail to Machu Picchu your main luggage will be stored in Cusco. You will receive a small duffle bag on the evening before your trek at the briefing. You can pack your clothes and sleeping bag for your multi-day trek. Your team of porters or pack horses (depending on trek) will carry your duffels 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 or pack horses will always be ahead of the group. In your day pack containing your personal belongings you should include you camera, water and sunscreen etc. By Peruvian law the duffle bag must not weigh more than 7 kilograms (14lbs) this limit is set to protect the health of the porters and animals. All bags will be weighed before being accepted. If you require more than 7 kilograms, it will then be your responsibility to carry the extra weight with your day pack.
Please Note: This packing list is only for 4, 5, & 7 Day Treks.
