Our group of porters has the best equipment during the walk, uniforms, life insurance and good salaries. Our team of porters are part of the Let's go family since they work with us for years and in some cases, the work goes from generation to generation, and that is why we always consider them within our recreational activities. We are against the exploitation of porters and we reward and recognize the great work they do.
Porters are the most important staff during our adventure to Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We say that it is the most important because they are in charge of carrying out all the necessary implements so that your excursion is as pleasant as possible. Unfortunately, many operating agencies do not give them the importance they deserve, so they do NOT provide them with adequate clothing to carry out their work, they have not been tested the special equipment to load things, they give a remuneration very low and above all, very, very poor and is a root of this that can be seen on the Inca road to porters thirsty for thirst, hungry and with a low morality. Peruvian government has created a law for porters where the operating agencies give the right conditions to the porters but unfortunately many do not comply.
So see the agency that you are going to hire and don't be part of this abuse.
Undoubtedly for many visitors to our country, after having reached the great archaeological center of Machu Picchu and especially having made the Inca Trail is the highlight of your trip. For others it is the realization of a dream of always. No matter what your religious beliefs are social, economic, the Inca Trail is really a special excursion that goes through spectacular mountain scenery, beautiful cloud forests, orchids and hummingbirds. Splashed with Inca archaeological centers, until finally arriving at the mysterious and magical city of Machu Picchu at dawn through the INTI PUNKU or Sun Gate.
However, and this is true, this positive feeling is much greater when you know that you have contributed to the welfare of the porters who helped you reach your goal by taking all the equipment of the excursion. Most of the porters on the Inca Trail are from the countryside, farmers who supplement their income by working on the Inca Trail. Their language is Quechua, the official language of the Incas, although many speak Spanish. Many of their traditions and beliefs have not changed since long before the arrival of the Spaniards.So be careful at the hour of contract a tour operator and be secure of the treat of their porter staff.
