Are you curious to know what to wear to Machu Picchu? Look no further: Our packing list covers the basics and a few extras.
Sleeping bag: If you are going on a multi-day hike to Machu Picchu, you will need a comfortable sleeping bag.
Backpack: Choose a backpack with space for everything you need and, if you are carrying your own sleeping bag, make sure you choose one with external accessories to accommodate your sleeping bag.
Trekking poles – These are not necessary, but can be nice to have.
Sunscreen – Bring more than you think you will need. The atmosphere is thinner and the sun is stronger at the elevation of Machu Picchu, so even people with natural tans are sunburned.
Insect repellent – Although there aren’t as many bugs here as at lower altitudes, you’ll be glad you made room for insect repellent.
Comfortable, quick-drying pants – enough to go with you on your trip. If you can wear your pants more than once, you’ll find you save a lot of space. If you’re not too worried about having pockets, consider wearing sweatpants such as tights or yoga pants.
Lightweight T-shirts that can be worn in layers – Because the days are hot and humid, you’ll probably be more comfortable with base layers made of lightweight T-shirts or tanks. Bring a warmer base layer to wear at night and bring other lighter layers to use at camp and in case you encounter colder weather.
Underwear – Bring enough to keep a clean outfit each day of the trip, plus a couple of spare pairs in case you need them.
Wool jacket or hoodie – You probably won’t need it during the day, but once the sun goes down and the temperature drops, you’ll be glad you did. Fleece is ideal as it dries quickly.
Gloves, hat and other cold weather essentials – Depending on the time of year you plan your visit, as well as whether you’re hiking or camping, you may need gloves, mittens and a warm hat to wear at night when the temperatures drop. Sleeping with a hat and gloves may seem strange, but it is a good way to preserve body heat and rest before continuing the trip the next morning.
Rain jacket with hood – Even in the dry season, there is a chance of rain. Choose something light and waterproof.
Poncho – You may want to wear a lightweight plastic poncho in case you get caught in the rain, but it’s too hot to wear your jacket.
Proper footwear – Visiting Machu Picchu requires a lot of climbing on rocky surfaces and you are likely to find more than a little mud on the way. Choose comfortable boots or shoes for walking, or if you prefer, opt for a pair of running shoes on the trail.
Socks – Dry feet are happy feet, particularly when you are climbing Machu Picchu. Bring at least one pair of socks to wear each day of your hike and a clean pair to change into when you arrive at camp at the end of the day.
Blister prevention – Even if your shoes are well broken in, blisters are a possibility on a long hike. Using protective patches or a specially formulated blister prevention cream can be a real lifesaver.
Toiletries – What you should bring depends on your needs and the length of your Machu Picchu hike.
Bathing suit – The hot springs of Aguas Calientes are one of the favorite stops when visiting Machu Picchu, so save some room in your bag for a bathing suit.
Camera – Bring your favorite camera and make sure you have one or two extra memory cards, depending on how many photos you think you will take and the length of your trip.
Other equipment – Even though you will only be carrying a certain number of items on your trip, make sure you bring other equipment in your luggage so that you are ready for fun and adventure before and after visiting Machu Picchu itself. Lima, Cusco, Arequipa, Huaraz and other Peruvian cities are known for having fun nightlife scenes, nice restaurants and other attractions that require some dressing up.
