Inka Trail MapAny person of any age can do the trek, however, deciding for children under 8 is in the responsibility of parents.
There is a trek of 2 days and a trek of 4 days.
We suggest to those who are not accustomed to this type of trek choosing the trek of 2 days.
In general we suggest you're sure having a good physical condition without necessarily being an athlete.
We walk slowly and we are in small groups, then it is normal to stop for rest; and we will pass the 4200 metres of height and because of this we don't recommend the trek to persons that are subject to respiratory problems or to heart problems. Only the doctor can tell you whether you can or can not make the trek and it is advisable to consult him in case of doubts.
