Things To Carry

  • Comfortable Footwear: You'll be doing quite a bit of walking, often on uneven surfaces, so sturdy, comfortable shoes, preferably hiking boots, are a must.

  • Sun Protection: The sun can be quite strong at high altitudes, so don't forget sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat for protection.
  • Rain Gear: Weather in the Andes can be unpredictable, and showers are not uncommon, so a lightweight, packable rain jacket or poncho is advisable.
  • Warm Clothing: Temperatures can drop significantly in the evening, so pack a warm jacket or fleece, especially if you're staying overnight.
  • Camera: You'll want to capture the stunning landscapes and historical sites, so bring a good camera, ensuring your batteries are charged and you have plenty of memory space.
  • Passport: You'll need your passport for entrance into Machu Picchu, and for purchasing bus or train tickets.
  • Personal Medication and First Aid: If you take any medications, be sure to bring enough for the duration of the tour. It's also wise to pack a basic first aid kit with band-aids, antiseptic wipes, and treatment for minor ailments.
  • Cash: Not all places accept credit cards, especially in smaller towns, so carry enough Peruvian soles for any purchases.
