Our Porters

Xtreme Tourbulencia’s porters are made up of men from the different communities near the Inca Trail such as Lares, Ollantaytambo, Urubamba, Calca, Pisac, Anta and Paucartambo. Most of them are men dedicated to agriculture.

The porters are our heroic allies who transport all the equipment, materials, supplies and food throughout the Inca Trail with great effort.

Trained porters

Every year the porters are trained by the SERNANP (National Service of Natural Protected Areas of the Peruvian state), with the aim of strengthening the development of tourist activities on the Inca Trail with environmental and cultural conservation, these are strategies of the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Pichu.

What do the porters carry?

Our admirable porters or also known as the Inca Trail support staff are always ready to carry camping equipment, visitor luggage, backpacks, food, supplies and your personal clothing. They are happy to help you make your adventure as comfortable as possible.

How much weight should they carry?

According to the regulations, the carrier must carry a maximum of 20 kilograms, which is controlled during the walk.

Technical support

The porters are amazing because in addition to carrying our equipment, they must set up the tents, help in the kitchen, take care of your belongings, store the equipment, etc. The strength they have is incomparable, worthy of acknowledgment considering their Inca descendants.
