  1. Your Passport

You'll of course need your passport to get into Peru, but you'll also need your passport when you start the visit.

  1. Proper Hiking Attire

The temperature will vary quite a lot during the day and at night, and the heat of your own body will increase during intense walks and will fall while you relax. You need clothes that can handle all these situations.

You should bring long-sleeved shirts, and also a light jacket. You should also have some clothes for cold weather at night, including gloves and scarves, especially if you are designing your Salkantay Trail packing list for the coldest months of the year.

Swimwear for a visit in Cocalmayo Santa Teresa where you can swim and enjoy these wonderful hot springs.

  1. Proper Footwear/ Walking sticks

Whether you choose to wear hiking boots or a hybrid of footwear / hiking boots, make absolutely sure that they are waterproof

The boots provide more support for the ankles while the shoes are significantly lighter.

Make sure that everything you are wearing fits well and that it is somewhat worn, since the blisters on a five-day walk are nothing fun.

Walking sticks it helps a lot in the walk and to keep the balance better, in Cusco you can rent for an economical price

A poncho or a rain jacket, as well as some plastic bags to separate your wet clothes from the dry ones, are essential for your Salkantay Trail packing list.
