Thousands of people walk the Inca Trail to Machupicchu every year and the unique idea is to complete the 45 km of distance in 4 days. For many the experience is a trip of a lifetime and the realization of a personal ambition. The fulfilment of having completed the trek and arrive to Machupicchu (the Incan santuary) is hard to beat.

However the feeling is even better if you know that all the porters helping you along the way have been well watched after and treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. Every year porters die unnecessarily on the job; Porters are often considered among the lowest social positions within the community and too frequently are exploited by their employers who pay poor wages and do nothing to improve the working So is the answer to avoid using porters on your trek? No. If you act responsibly and choose an ethical company.
