Inca Trail, Titicaca & Nazca

We are travelling on the 15 June trip of this tour, four adults, just wondering if anyone else is booked on - would be lovely to connect before the tour.

Hi Nicola 

My name is Sue and I'm doing this on my own but really looking forward to it. I am travelling from Norwich via Amsterdam, so will be there on the Friday. 

Hi is this the essential Peru raymi festival You’re referring to? I’m travelling on the 16th June for my 30th birthday on my own so I hope I’ll have some willing celebrators with me 😂

Hi Leah 

No this is the Inca trail Lake Titicaca and Nazca 17 day trip. Hope you have a great 30th birthday though, no doubt there will be someone ready to celebrate with you. 

Hi, hope you have a great time Leah, we may find our paths cross as we are in similar places at the same time.  We are also arriving on the Friday, flying direct from Gatwick.

Hi Nicola 

What time do you get into Lima? I land at 18.10.  This will be my first long haul flight!!!

Hi Sue, we arrive at 18.30 on the 15th, so perhaps will all meet in the airport to be taken to our first hotel.  Not sure if there is anyone else on the tour.  Exciting that in a couple of months we will be there.

Hi Nicola and Sue,

I'm joining this tour on my own - flying direct from Gatwick arriving 18:30 on Friday 15th!  Staying 1st night at El Tambo I hotel.  So I guess we will be greeted at LIMA airport and taken to the hotel together!

Hi Tracey 

Yes looks like we will all be meeting at Lima Airport. So that's six of us so far. Not long to go now!!!

Hi

I had a couple of questions regarding the kit to take.  Are you going to be taking your own 4 Season Sleeping bag or hiring?  If you already have a 4 season bag - I wonder if you could recommend a particular make / model.  There is so much choice!  

Also, can you recommend a good solar powered charger..... my iPhone takes better pictures than my Sony Smallpix digital camera which is over 10 years old now!  

The kit list suggests water proof trousers - are you bothering with these?

Any suggestions on the kit would be very gratefully received.

Hi

We are planning to hire the sleeping bags, as we only have one 4 season type between us.  I have bought a sleeping bag liner each, though as didn't want to hire these.

We have bought some solar power chargers - a Power Bank model express E1 24000 milliamp hour - from Amazon.  This seems OK, we also have some battery packs that look the same but need pre-charging, so will take these as well (there are 4 of us so will need a lot).  We also have Iphones and one of our daughters will be using her phone for pictures.

Not sure we are going to take the waterproof trousers as I think we are going in the dryer season.  Also it will be another thing to carry in our back pack, and might need the space for other things.  I am a bit worried about the weight limit for the trek - suspect we will all be a bit smelly by the end!

We are on the same flight as you BA from Gatwick, and as it looks like Sue is getting in about the same time will be good to meet up

Hi Tracey

I planned on hiring sleeping bag when I get there, less bulk to worry about. I believe they come with a liner but will be bringing my own. 

As to chargers I have got a battery pack which should charge up my phone, iPad and MP3 player if needed, which should be enough for the trek. 

Waterproof trousers live in my rucksack and take up little room so I will be bringing mine. 

Havent decided on rest of kit yet except for my thermals and a warm jacket .  Hope that helps a bit. 

Sue

Thank you both for your feedback - very useful indeed.    I've gone onto Amazon and bought a power pack.  Good to know about the 4 season sleeping bag - think I will do the same and hire.  I do have a liner so thats ok. 

Wow - lots to buy / order in!

Best wishes

Tracey
