  • Day 1:

    Sacsayhuaman the first site we visit, which means ‘satisfied falcon,’ is one of the most impressive sites built by the Incas. It is generally referred to as a fortress. However, it is not certain what its main function was before the Spanish arrived. Current research suggests that it was more likely used as a temple, as Inca tombs have been discovered in the area.  The Incas planned the city of Cusco in the shape of a puma, with Sacsayhuaman as the head. The magnificent zigzag walls are the major attraction. 

    On the way to Pisac and the Sacred Village we stop at the archeological sites of Q’enqo, Puca Pucará and Tambomachay. After exploring there we are on our way to Pisac.  

    The Inca village of Pisac is one of the largest pre-Columbian style handicraft and textile markets in the region of Cusco and the archeological ruins of Pisac are considered to be one of the finest remaining Inca archeological sites in the country. The Inca tunnel and the Sacred Temple Complex are constructed from exquisitely carved pink granite.  You will also explore one of the biggest Inca cemeteries with more than 2000 tombs and admire the incredible farming terraces carved into the mountain.

    At the colorful Inca market in Pisac, you will be able to appreciate a mixture of colors and Inca culture and tradition. You will have plenty of opportunities to test your bartering skills, interact with the local artisans and purchase their hand-made souvenirs. Be sure to bring soles to bargain with. Locals do not change money.

porters inca trail

Our Porters

Our porters personify hard work. We employ about 90 porters from local communities. They are mostly farmers by trade and are native Quechua speakers. They mainly come from the indigenous communities around the trail. We refer to our super porters as ¨Red Machine¨. This is because they work hard during the treks but carrying duffel bags, camping gear, and more! It is important to us that we employ porters from local villages because we are supporting them to become self-efficient and helping communities grow their economy to better the quality of lives.

We provide the following items to our porters and cooks for free: Working insurance, Jacket, sun hat, warm hat, t-shirt, pants, hiking boots, comfortable duffle bags, canteen, girdle for protecting their spine, sleeping bags, mattress.

Our porters are what make everything look seamless and smooth. They have your tent ready before your arrival in your tent and most importantly they significantly lighten that camping gear load.
