Every 200 people and 300 people start to leave. 82 on the Inca Trail. Machu Picchu, Peru, has devoted a great deal of effort to protecting and maintaining this famous route by limiting licensing and building special camps.

10 things to expect in the Inca route
When they told you that day, Day 2 was the hardest day … They did not lie. The women’s march through this is more difficult than expected. Lots of stairs up to a high altitude make this a challenging day, not a lot of easy walking in the garden.

All weather is possible. We go from short sleeves in the sun to pour rain at lower temperatures than comfortable. At the end of Day 2, the summit is cold and windy, with long sleeves, jackets, gloves, hats and everything else. On the third day, heavy rain is enough. If you do not wrap it under your coat or under a poncho, you may be wet. Conditions on the route vary greatly, as is the season throughout the year. Ruby of the dead woman passes the inca route.
Do not wear clothes. The toilet on the Inca route consists of holes in the ground with two grooves to place your feet and they are not happy. Five hundred people with all mud feet tried to use only six existing toilets, resulting in questionable hygiene status. These toilets are not much during the day, so most people use natural toilets. TIP! Squat practice before leaving

Camping on the trail inca
Porters make you feel luxurious when traveling dirty. These people are beyond miracles. They take half the fabric of the tent, kitchen, chairs, everything and run up the hill on their back, all while wearing sandals, making you and your climbing shoes seem funny. When you arrive at your camp with a tent, a sleeping bag, and everything else laid out for you, these guys make you feel like celebrities as they clap and cheer you while you’re camping. Following them, they supply you with warm water, tea, popcorn and finally dinner. I have seen one run to the camp and come back with a sandwich to feed the elderly hungry. These people are trying their best to make you feel like celebrity during your harsh hikes on the inca trail.
Harmony among hikers Your tour group may be full of new people, but when it comes to trek, they are like your new family.
