During the 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 3-4 days. Your team of porters or horse (depending on trek) 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. It is advisable to carry your day pack containing your personal belongings such as your camera, water and sun screen 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.
