Your team of porters will carry these bags together with the food and equipment for the trail. Please note that you will not have access to these items until the end of each day as the porters will always be ahead of the group, you should therefore bring a day pack in which you can carry personal belongings such as your camera, water and sunscreen.

My first visit to Peru and high altitude trekking experience. Sam Travel Peru met all our needs and expectations. Transportation to and from CUZ/local hotels were included and definitely made logistics easier. The hike itself was amazing. Incredible views both day and night. Our guide, Adner, was knowledgeable about Inca history and local cultures. He did a great job managing a group with different hiking abilities and speeds. The food provided was excellent, especially considering it was prepared in a tent. You will not go hungry. Our horseman worked hard as well. Would definitely recommend and use again. Only negative was a local strike that was beyond SAM Travel’s control but they helped us get on a later train. Be aware of that possibility and maybe give yourself extra travel time at the end of your trip.
