Powered by SmugMug Log In
The Inca Trail is big business employing about 5,000 porters in the high season, mostly subsistence farmers from the valley. They carry up to 25 kg of tents, food, gas bottles and cooking equipment. Porters must hike ahead of the group (red in the photo) in order to set up camp and prepare dinner before the trekkers arrive.
