    Please note: The charted temperatures were taken at 3400 meters. The temperature changes with changes in altitude (higher altitude = colder).

    Also note that it could be wet on the 3rd and 4th day of the Inca Trail due to clouds and the wet forest region.

    Available Departure Dates:
    Departures are continuous all year, except for February. The trail is officially closed during February. As the Inca Trail Trek is internationally popular, and the government limits the number of treks that may start each day, we strongly recommend that you make your reservation as timely as possible. So far we have been able to obtain trek permits for all of our clients, but your early booking will ensure that you are not disappointed.
