Summary of the trip planning conversation
Hi, My name is Evelyn and I am the travel specialist based in Cusco, Peru.
We would love to take you on the Inca Trail but unfortunately permits are sold out for all of June. In fact, permits are sold out until the end of October.
Permits are non-refundable and non-transferable so we are not able to get new permits for your dates, this is a Government policy that applies for all companies that operate the Inca Trail.
But you shouldn't miss the opportunity to do a hike to Machu Picchu, I can offer you our 5-day Salkantay trek, this trek is really beautiful, you will be in contact with nature, hike through the Andes, observe many different microclimates along the way and visit Machu Picchu on the last day.
We have a group confirmed to depart on June 21st that you can join.
The price of the Salkantay trek is US$ 826 per person and includes transportation to the start of trek, all meals, camping equipment, an English speaking guide, pack animals who will carry the gear (8 kilos x person, we will provide duffle bag) and a first aid kit. It also includes entrance fee into the citadel on day 5, a guided tour, lunch that day and transportation from the train station to your hotel in Cusco.
It does not include: hotel in Machu Picchu Village on the 4th night and return train ticket. If you wish we can help you booking these services, just let me know your preference.
This is an intermediate level trek, for which we advise you have at least 2 days of acclimatization in the Cusco area, if you are in good physical condition, you should have no troubles.
While you are acclimatizing to the altitude, we can organize a Cusco city tour and Sacred valley tour.
