    Luxury 4-day Inca trail VS 5 days

    When you think of the many ruins in Peru, you probably think first of the monuments of the Inca. But the Inca were not an ancient people — they had established themselves as the dominant culture in Peru for less than a century when the Spanish arrived in 1532. Peru has many layers of human civilization, dating back 12,000 years. Experts and government officials guess that there are around 100,000 sites of archaeological significance in Peru. Around 10,000 of these sites have been excavated. There is still much to uncover.

    Peru is home to some of the oldest cities in the world. Among others in very different locations of the country we have, Sechin, Caral, Chavin, Nazca, Moche, Wari, Sican, Chachapoyas, Chimu and many others

    It is difficult to decide which place or tour is good for all our desires and needs. In this amazing country you will find everything

    But, let’s go to the versus between these two experiences that take away our words

    Inca trail, a centuries-old magnificent achievement of the Inca people as their road system. It is estimated the Inca trails cover a length of 40 000 kilometers; it even surpasses the length of the Andes mountains.

    There is not a significant and huge difference in terms of views and places to see that impact your journey when hiking whichever of the Inca Trail version. The worldwide known Classic Inca trail 4-day hike, and the other 5-day Inca trail hike.

    But whether in 4 days or 5 days, our luxury service, with extreme comfort, will make you have one of the most memorable experiences with a great human team and equipment, that you will not have to ask for anything else and, with the wonderful food that is prepared in the same place every day

    4 days Classic Inca Trail

    Anyone who loves the outdoors should be thinking of hiking the Inca Trail. There’s a reason this multi-day trek tops travelers’ bucket lists. Many people say that hiking the Inca Trail is better than visiting Machu Picchu itself.

    The 4-day trek covers a distance of approximately 42 kilometers and involves hiking for 4 days with the final day being dedicated to exploring Machu Picchu. The trail begins at Km 82, where trekkers cross the Urubamba River and then ascend to the ruins of Llactapata, followed by Dead Woman’s Pass, Runkurakay, Sayacmarca, and Wiñay Wayna. On the fourth day, trekkers wake up early to hike to Machu Picchu and arrive at the Sun Gate in time to see the sunrise over the ruins

    • In these 4 days you see everything but with the most accurate times.
    • You will wake up earlier
    • More effort in the walks because of the times to be fulfilled
    • Fixed camps and sometimes with more tourists around
    • It is considered moderate level hike
    • It is much more requested than the 5 days, so it must be done well in advance.

    5-days Inca Trail

    The 5-day trek covers the same distance as the 4-day trek, but it is spread out over 5 days. This means that there is less distance to cover each day, and trekkers can take their time and enjoy the scenery along the way. The fifth day includes the same visit to Machu Picchu as the 4-day trek.

    • Hiking 5 days, you will wake up late on day 04. But hiking
    • Most tourists of the 4-day Inca Trail miss the Intipata Ruins. However, in 5 day, you will have plenty of time to explore it.
    • On Inca Trail 5 days, you will have time to explore the Wiñaywayna ruins (considered the best Inca ruin of all Inca Trail).
    • You can acclimatize better on the 5-day Inca Trail, because the first campsite is even lower than Cusco City and you hike a short distance on day 01.
    • You have better chance to see Machu Picchu from the Sungate because most the time in the afternoons it is not cloudy
    • Longer lunches stop
    • Camp at less busy camping sites
    • Spend the whole tour out of reach of crowds.
    • Do the down trek section without being harried
    • Reduced trek length to cover each day, compared to Inca Trail 4-day luxury hike
    • Sleep at a real hotel, whether in the same Citadel or in Aguas Calientes town on the fourth night so you take a shower and visit Mapi clean.
    • Better photos to share with friends and family
    • You get more sleep.
    • More time to relax and recover in campsites
    • You visit Machu Picchu at its quietest
    • You will visit Machu Picchu twice

    Recapping, both the 4-day and 5-day Inca Trail treks are great options, and the choice between them depends on personal preferences, physical fitness, and time constraints. If you have the extra day and prefer a more relaxed pace, the 5-day trek might be the better option. However, if you are short on time or prefer a more challenging hike, the 4-day trek might be a better fit.
