What's appropriate footwear for walking the Inca Trail?

Ask our Experts

Can I wear trainers on the Inca trail or do I definitely need hiking boots?

Asked by Ralph

I walked the Inca trail a couple of years ago in October which is the start of the rainy season and I would definitely recommend taking hiking boots. Most of the trail is made up of stone steps so you’ll find that you're ascending for a few hours and then descending for a couple of hours - hiking boots with ankle supports are a must!
