The Inca Trails Grade

Grade: Moderate

This trek is suitable for beginners and more experiences trekkers alike.

What to expect:

  • You will cover easy angled walking terrain on well used paths, with the odd steep section and high pass.
  • Previous experience is not necessary - these are good entry level expeditions.
  • Trekking days can be 7 - 8 hrs long, with plenty of rest stops along the way.
  • You will spend some time trekking above the 4000m mark, and this can be hard work. Expect to experience some of the symptoms cause by travel at altitude such as breathlessness and the occasional headache.
  • Plan for variable weather conditions, sometimes as low as minus 10c.
  • Porters and pack animals will carry equipment and provisions most of the time, and you will usually carry a rucksack which is no more than 5KGs in weight.
