Is someone going to do the inca trail in july/juni ?
I was looking around at some companies, and it seems to be more cheaper if there will be more ppl.
Im a 20 year old girl, and im going to travel around alone, and want to travel cheapest possible.

You shouldn't be paying anymore then $400 to hike the Inca Trail. Companies that claim it will cost you more if you are a single traveler are just trying to take your money. It is important to book ahead of time, as of today the Inca Trail is sold out for April and May with a couple of dates in June and more in July. Check out Andean Travel webs list of licensed agencies or contact us for more information.

It won't be cheaper, it will be impossible. The inca trail only allows 500 people onto it each day (of which ~300 will be porters), so for the high season of May through September, every day will be completely sold out 2-4 months in advance.

As for which company to go with, the tour operators on this list are the only ones licensed to take people onto the inca trail; booking through them will always be cheaper than booking through another company which will function as middle man, with the actual trip being run by a company on that list after all. Besides price, also pay attention to things like how these companies treat their porters. I'd stay away from some of the cheapest ones.

We must inform you that the Inca trail spaces given by the government, have been all sold out, until June 29th, (this is not just for United Mice; it is for the all companies in Cusco).

Please contact us to give you more information on this trek, if necessary!

The following departures dates are still available for the 4D/3N Inca Trail starting on:

June, 29th, July 3rd, 7th, 11th, 15th, 19th, 23rd, 26th, 29th

This is the answer from united mice .. :)

Hey, Sorry to interrupt the conversation why don't you try another trail as nice as the traditional Inka Trail. For instance why dont you go to Choquequirao which is bigger than Machu Picchu, it is not overcrowded and much cheaper than Inka Trail.

If you need some more information about the way to get there and so on please tell me,, hmm there are some pic in my profile

see u
