WHAT TO PACK FOR THE INCA TRAIL

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

Find out what to pack to ensure you have everything you need to tackle the Inca Trail and reach Machu Picchu


We embarked on the 4 day, 3 night Inca Trail trek and packed only the essentials to ensure our backpacks weren't too heavy. We used everything we took and didn't feel like we'd missed anything so hope this checklist helps you to pack:

  • Down jacket

  • Waterproof

  • 2-3 pairs of sports leggings

  • 2-3 sports bras

  • 2-3 pairs of sports shorts

  • 4-5 Underwear (I opted for thongs to stop any unwanted VPL)

  • 4 pairs of hiking socks

  • A rain cover for our backpacks

  • Head torches

  • A full water bottle and full reservoir (Camelback)

  • Flip flops or change of shoes for around camp at the end of the day

  • 2-3 thermal leggings and tops to sleep in

  • Buff, hat, gloves

  • Sun cream, insect repellant, moisturiser, face and body wipes, deodorant, paracetemol, mosquito bands, stomach tablets, mobile phone, portable charger, passports (old and new if renewed since booking trek)

Happy packing!
