"United Mice" Inca Trail Guides Tips (3)

Breakfast and coffee break

Breakfast consisted of some drink (coffee, tea, cacao), cereals, milk, pancakes and bread with butter and jam. Not amazing but big enough to keep hiking all morning.
There was usually a coffee break at 11 or so...

Lunch included

Lunch, breakfast and dinner are included in the Inca Trail, except first breakfast ans lunch/dinner of the 4th day.
They usually serve it in a special tent, and it consists in 2 main dishes, and some tea or coffee. Portions were big and the food was delicious, at least it seemed so after all day trekking!!

The dinner tent: Carry your own

In the historical site of Machu Picchu itself you only have the cafeteria at the entrance, the other restaurants are all located in Aguas Calientes, the village nearby. There are several good restaurants near the train track and you can even dine with the train standing next to your table.

But when you do the Inca trail, you have a walking restaurant with you. Our tour company “United mice” has a cook and his aid for making those lovely dinners. We were each time amazed that they could prepare such a delicious meal so high in the mountains. The porters have to bring all the food and cooking equipment with them during the whole trip.

The waiters are superb, yes, they are, because once they place the food on the table, you scoop your own food into your dish. The menu card is excellent and very healthy. The order of beverages is limited to coffee, thee or water, but that’s fine.

Favorite Dish The meals are good and there is a good variation every day. The best restaurant for miles around.
