Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek Gear List

These are guidelines to help you pack for the trek to Machu Picchu. I suggest that you bring one large duffel bag (North Face size L) for the trek and your daypack. Do not bring a roller bag or hard suitcase for your trekking gear as they are difficult to load on the pack horses. You should also bring a second small duffel with you. You can leave the small duffel at the hotel with your travel clothes and things that you will not need on the trek.
Pack light. Have your travel clothes washed at the hotel while you are on the trek so they will be clean when you return from your trek. When you fly over carry on your pack with any critical items that would be difficult to replace in Cusco if your checked bag was lost: medications, boots…
