Why we bring duffel bags?
Why we bring duffel bags?When hiking the Inca Trail we need to be very careful with the amount of weight we are taking for every group.Remember that the Inca Trail is only possible thanks to the help of our porters. Our Green Machine is the hardest working staff in the mountains and for that same reason we need to take care of them as much as we can.The Inca Trail is the most famous trek in Peru and for that same reason is the most regulated. This is in order to preserve the park and also to protect the staff working to make this trek possible. There are a lot of rules that Alpaca Expeditions as a licensed tour operator follows religiously and there is one specific about the weight each client can bring.Here is when the 7 Kg rule comes in. Every client is only allowed to bring 7 kilos of extra weight besides the daypack each one carries. For that same reason we provide our duffel bags which are the perfect size to cover this 7 kilos need and also to be comfortable for our team to carry.
