engagement on Waina Pichu
Miscellaneous: I also agree on Waina Pichu heights for your engagement proposal as you can get a dramatic scenery shot to go with your engagement.Make sure you pre book the M.P. adventure day pack and once you arrive in Machu Pichu do the climb first thing before it gets crowded ...you will have a lot of stairs to climb so be prepared! Also bring along a good shampane bottle that works in 3,000mts+ heights!....enjoy
If you are trekking in....
Luggage and bags: waterproof backpack cover.
Passport - You will need your passport to enter this National Park.
Pack as light as possible.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good waterproof poncho. It rains a lot.
Comfy hiking shoes.

Toys to share
Miscellaneous: We brought toys and candy to let our kids share with the local peruvian kids. Kids make friends so easily. Sharing and giving some toys and candies seemed to make everyone so happy. You could just hear laughter and giggles -which must be universal in all languagesRelated to:

Food from home
Miscellaneous: If you are with your kids, we recommend bringing some snacks and food that they like from home. It helped us a lot and saved time as we traveled on trains planes and buses and taxis..
Kids enjoyed local food and food from home so they were very happy.Related to:

Pack Light but be prepared
Luggage and bags: Back Packs work best . we saw some people struggle with suitcases...not worth it.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We were happy we brought rain ponchos ...it started to pour rain when as we were leaving the ruins. You also need good hiking shoes. There's alot of walking and climbing.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: We alsways take a small first aid kit and often had to use it . Take headache medicne ---high alttitude can bring on a headache, stomach meds fro travellers woes, and sunscreen .
Photo Equipment: Lots of digital memory. We were sorry we left our videa equipment at home.Related to:

Bring Your Lunch
Miscellaneous: When going to Machu Picchu one of the essential things that you should pack is a lunch especially if you will be climbing Huyana Picchu too. There is a lot of hiking and going up and down intricate terrain so make sure you pack plenty of fluids and high energy foods like granola bars and fruit. For your conveinence, Gringo Bill's Hostel can provide a brown bag lunch complete with 2 sandwiches, fruit, granola, and a drink for $5 US.
Bug Spray - A Must
Luggage and bags: Most definitly a small backpack to carry into the site during the day
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you are expected to stay late definitly bring a sweater as it does get windy and cold. Also a water proof jacket a must, if you go during rainy season.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bug spray a must is you decided to hike to one of the near by view like Una Picchu
Photo Equipment: If you have an SLR then a wide agle lense is great and if you clime the view points then a Zoom to supliment.
Things to Bring to Machu Picchu
Luggage and bags: *Large backpacks are not allowed inside the ruins, but there are two places to store luggage/backpacks before the entrance
*Also, walking sticks are not permitted, even though people coming in from the Inca Trail seemed to be allowed to have them
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: *Good hiking boots - be prepared to go up and down all day
*Sunscreen - the sun is very strong due to the high altitude. Bring a higher SPF than you normally need.
*Rain gear - the little entrepreneurs are ready to sell you ponchos as the buses leave Aguas Calientes, but better to bring your own raincoat or poncho.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: *Toilets are located outside the entrance checkpoint, so you have to leave and show your ticket to get back in if you have to "go". The public restroom cost 50 centimos - but the Lodge restroom was nicer and free (we'd just eaten in the restaurant, but didn't look like there was any "pottie police")
Photo Equipment: *Film was available from the Sanctuary Lodge, but cheaper and quicker to bring your own
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: *Binoculars - even a cheap pair - come in handy for spotting llamas, looking up at Huayna Picchu and the Inca flag on the top of the mountain opposite the bus road, finding friends
Miscellaneous: *Food/drinks are technically not allowed, but everyone walked in with bottled water with no problems - very necessary to drink through the day. Also, we packed a few snacks, but tried to stay out of sight and left no evidence when we ate.Related to:
