      Full Description


      Depart early at 2.30 am from a hotel located in Cusco and drive for 4 hours in our modern vans to the trailhead,  Upon arrival you enjoy a picnic breakfast prepared by your local chef.

      After breakfast and a nice hot cup of Coca tea to help us with the 5000 plus, the hike begins with a 2-hour hike up to the top of Vinincunca mountain, also known as Rainbow Mountain. Throughout the route, you will be able to see hundreds of llamas and alpacas, hike along the snowcapped peaks of the Ausangate Mountain range, the highest in Cusco city. As we get closer to the top, the views just get more and more impressive with every meter we climb. At the same time, your tour guide explains you about the formation of the painted hills. When we finally reach the top of Rainbow Mountain, there will be very few or no people, since you are going ahead of the crowd. There is nothing more amazing than arriving at this place first and be the early birds to Rainbow Mountain.

      After enjoying the beautiful views of the Peruvian Andes, contemplating the spectacular 360°-degree view from the top, we will take an extra 30-minutes hike to Red Valley,  another spectacular and inspiring place with landscapes that will take your breath away and is rarely visited by travelers. From here, we will head back to the beginning of the trail, where our lunch will be waiting for us. We use local products to provide you the best of our gourmet Peruvian food prepared by our chef and later Come back to Cusco, arriving around 4:30 pm.

      It’s hard to put into words what the 4D/3N Inca Trail Trek with Trexperience was really like. The chef, the porters and the guides were amazing. The food was far better than we eat at home. The natural beauty beats anything you see in photos or videos. The hike was hard - physically and mentally - harder than what I’d imagined. But our guides - Daniel and Susy - helped me when I wasn’t sure I could take another step. Now the aches and pains have faded but the memories will last a lifetime.

      It was an excellent hike.Joseph and Ethel were amazed and very helpful. One person on the group had leg cramp and Joseph gave him his hiking pole and stayed with hime until the person felt better. Joseph explained a lot about the inca history and culture showing his vast knowledge . Ethel also explained the different types or orchids found during the trail. It was fun hike and I really enjoyed it Definitely, would use your company again to discover more of Peru’s wonderful places

      The trek was well organized and planned. Everything was as explained except we were pleasantly surprised to find better amenities than expected AND cold beer at every site! Our guide, Roger, was excellent and provided us with expert knowledge and pleasant company. The rest of the crew and chefs were also very friendly and the food was surprisingly good. Although parts of the trek were grueling, they always made it enjoyable.

      We went on the 5 day Luxury Inca Trail at the beginning of October. It was a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and the hardest thing I ever did. Kudos to our guide, JJ, who was not only informative, but sensitive to all of our needs. My son had to drop out of the trip after day one because of illness. JJ and TreXPerience took care of everything. He was able to re-join us at Machu Picchu. This trip is beyond luxury. Tea in the cloud forest …. with china. Double mattress bed for my wife and me. Hot shower every day. Portable toilet. Ultra gourmet meals, beautifully presented. The chef, Walter, was incredible. Massage every day. All of this done with a staff of more than 40 people! Leandro the head porter managed amazing people who carried everything and really took care of us. We felt how happy all of the porters were on this trip. And they were all so encouraging. JJ and assistant guide Etel were a great help especially for my wife who was having a hard time with the hike. Assistant guide Luis left the group to personally lead my son back to town and get him to a hotel, and look in on him as he rested. It felt like we were on the trail by ourselves the whole time. Our guide says it’s because the 5 day itinerary has a different, more relaxed timetable compared to the more popular 4-day itineraries. Surreal experience - the changing scenery (ancient farmland, mystical cloud forest, awesomely rugged terrain above the clouds), exploring Inca ruins all along the trail by ourselves, quiet and peaceful without the hundreds of tourists that descend on Machu Picchu. Don’t underestimate how difficult the hike is. But when it’s done, you feel an incredible sense of accomplishment, and you know you’ve seen and done things that only others who have hiked this trail have experienced. Thank you TreXperience for making one of my lifelong dreams come true!

      I can unreservedly recommend choosing Trexperience for your Inca Trail hike. Everything was well planned and coordinated and the trip went without a hitch. They seem to take good care of their staff, especially the porters, and the food provided on the trek went well beyond the expectations of all the hikers. Meal times made it seem more like a glamping expedition. Our guide Cheff Amilcar (Guide Sutta) was outstanding. He shepherded a group ranging from an eight-year-old boy to a fairly old guy (me) with great skill, keeping us well briefed on what to expect and managing to allow people to travel at their own pace while staying together as a group. Sutta is well travelled outside Peru and is well attuned to people from the Anglosphere, having lived in the US and Australia among other places. He seemed to know everyone along the Inca Trail and was adept at getting us to the right place at the best time — ie, to get the best position for entry to the Machu Picchu site as well as the best campsites. He was a great source of knowledge about both the Incan civilisation and archeological sites and the people and culture of modern Peru. A fair percentage of the people on my hike expressed an intention to do the Saltankay hike with Trexperience and, preferably, Cheff Amilcar in the near future. The idea is appealing to me as well though I’ll need to rest up for a bit. It’s a challenging but doable hike even for the borderline elderly.
