Recommendations to pack your backpack for the Inca Trail and Salkantay trek

  1. A backpack is a bag of bags, which means that we will separate things into bags inside, in order to order them and find them more easily and quickly.
  2. You must choose a backpack according to your height and that above all you are capable of carrying, do not overload it to the limit remember that you must walk its good steps on more than one occasion.
  3. The total weight of your backpack must not exceed 20% of your weight.
  4. Before putting things away, we will organize them: toiletries, underwear, eating utensils and try to put them in the outer pockets of your backpack, so you will have them within reach.
  5. Inside, you must order long pants, shorts, t-shirts, long and short sleeves, cotton polo shirt (a couple of changes of clothes), socks, jacket and a rain poncho for the rainy season.
  6. What cannot be missing is your “ALWAYS READY”, here you must take basic necessities such as: thread, needle, band-aid patch, aspirin, tweezers, a match box protected in a bag (so it does not get wet).

IMPORTANT: Do not bring items that are not essential, since the load will be heavy.
