inca trail during january

by mhayman

i am going to peru around the middle of january with a friend. we want to do the inca trail but are worried about the rain. how bad is the rain? is it dangerous?

our budget is tight and we don't want a cook, porter or any other service. how much would a guide be alone? is it possible to do the inca trail without a guide? is it possible to buy a hiking permit online?
how competetive is it to get one of the 500 permits issued each day?

1. It can be dangerous, but the risk is ususally low. As things get further into the rainy season, the risk increases (February and March). In fact the Inca Trail is closed in March every year. The main issue are the landslides, caused by the rain saturated soil.

2. The only way to get on the Inca Trail is through a licenced tour company, so no, you can't do it yourself, nor do you want to. The Peruvian government takes a significant percentage of the fees. The Inca Trail is not cheap.

3. Trips are booked months in advance.

Yes, in places I would say the Inca Trail is dangerous if it is raining. Some of the paths are narrow and very steep, the surrounding land is sometimes unstable. Care is needed in the dry season so I personally would not through choice do this walk in the wet season. I have just come back 6 weeks ago from the walk and the rainsy season was already underway (apparently it is early this year).

Yes, it's good to be worried in January since that's when the onslaught of the rainy season is experienced. An Inca Trail trek in January is a dangerous and high risk proposition since the ground is heavily saturated from the torrential rains, a reason why the trail is closed during the whole month of February of every year.
No, you cannot undertake a trek in a heavily regulated trail by yourselves. You need to book 5-6 months in advance with a reputable trekking agency that obtains your permits from the Peruvian government. You can compare prices on-line, so I would suggest that you do more research on this topic. Again, an independent Inca Trail hike is no longer permitted nowadays, and the guides/porters/permits come with the package. Procuring the permits is a highly competitive process for the agencies, so that's why you need to book way ahead of time.

Good Luck & Enjoy Beautiful Peru!

As said before in other replies, the rain could be pretty bad in January. However, the tour operator would not let you go if it would be really dangerous!? You have to book a full tour with the inca trail, with all the personnel in there.
Other options for you is or the salkantay trek or the lares trek. These are both raelly nice treks as well. salktantay for example is a 5 day tour and you can do it by yourself if you want to. Just ask a travel agency for advice and what to bring. you can check, a really nice tour operator that can give you all the information you want :)

Travel Tips for Cusco

the sleeping police...

by willy_wonka

i just had to laugh when i saw these guys, and put my zoom lens on my camera to take the pic. the 'riot police' falling asleep, reading books, and chatting. i don't even know why they were on the main square for, as it was a day with no parades. it was just a quiet peaceful day on the plaza de armas, and these guys waiting for something to happen. gave us a good laugh!

Opinions about Peru

by crummey

Now, what are my opinions of Peru?

Yes, the telephones and toilets and sinks andfaucets very often do not work

And yes there are computer terminals in every town of any substance, and chinese restaurants too.

And yes, the lager towns have their own Chinatowns.

And yes the Chinese food can be cheaper in North America or Europe.

And yes the lucky people live in concrete and cinderblock buildings.

And yes, the unlucky ones live in mud or thatch with their animals.

And yes they sh*t on the street and p*ss on the street.

And Yes they think Gringos are stupid and rich.

And Yes, if they thought gringos were smart then they might ty to emulate us and give their people clean water.

And yes, they love to rob tourists.

And yes they think every tourist came to this country simply to become a cocaine addict.

And yes they serve instant coffee in the restaurants, even though coffee is from Peru and they could easily brew real coffee.

And they Hate Gringo. They HATE gringos for three reasons: they think we are rich, they think we are arrogant and they think we want to sleep with their women.

But they love gringos. They LOVE gringos for three reasons: they think we are rich, they think we are arrogant and they think we want to sleep with their women. I think there is a bit of a paradox there, dont you?

And that is Peru, or atleast the Peru I know...perhaps there is another peru.

Raqchi Archaeological Park

by JessieLang

The Raqchi site contains the ruins of the largest Inca temple in Peru. The temple, dedicated to the god Wiracocha, is 3 stories high and had wood beam floor supports. There were 150 granaries, which were round buildings with cone-shaped roofs.

Other buildings housed women who took care of the temple and provided lodging for people who came to the large barter market that was held several times a year. The buildings were covered in plaster and had thatched roofs. You had to pay part of your goods as a fee for the use of the facilities.

The architecture at Raqchi is different than at other sites.

A giant Inca wall, made from volcanic rock, runs along the site. The wall is 3 m. high and 5 km in length, with openings for a main Inca road that crosses it.

65 mi SW of Cusco


by chrissyalex

Wow! These ruins are spectacular and huge! I didn't realize its magnitude until I actually visited them! You have to climb hundreds of steps to arrive at the top and there are also little paths you can take around part of the mountain. We were there for about an hour and half, but I think we could have spent 4 hours there. A fun place to explore.
Admission is with the tourist ticket.

from Puno to Cuzco

by chancay

ok, generally you travel with busses in Peru. There ara a lot of different bus agencies, ´better don´t choose the cheapest ones (or do you like stops for changing wheels or sleeping drivers...)...ok, I´m kidding, the most of the bus agencies in Peru I knew are quite good.
The other way to travel long distancies is the airplane, there are airports in Lima, Cuzco, Juliaca, Arequipa, Loreto and a lot of more big towns, travelling by plane is not that expensive neither.
Most beautiful and intersting of all is travelling from Puno to Cuzco or Cuzco to Arequipa by train. I recommand to do this!
