Important Baggage Specifications
Peru Rail, the company that operates the trains from Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu to Cusco, instated  a weight limit for all luggage coming on board the trains.
The weight limits from Peru Rail (and thus for the trek) areas follows:
1 backpack  –11 lbs / 5 kg (per person, which guests carry with them on the train)
and 1 duffel bag  –22 lbs / 10 kg (per person, which goes on a separate cargo train)

Anything over this weight limit, Peru Rail will charge guests directly at the train station in Aguas Calientes (Rate:US$0.82 per pound extra or US$1.80 per kg extra).
Please note that we do not charge a penalty for surpassing the weight allowance established by Peru Rail.
Most Cusco hotels will allow guests to store extra luggage at the hotel while guests are on the trek.
Please inquire directly with your pre-trek hotel.If your hotel does not provide this service please advise us of this. If you do not have an appropriate sized duffel bag, we can provide a duffel bag for loan at the pre-trek briefing (the night before departure).
You may return them to your guide after the trek. If your luggage exceeds the weight limit, please note that your luggage will be on board a separate cargo train from Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu to Cusco.
This means your luggage will not travel with you on this portion of the trip. Therefore, on Day 7 before you depart for Machu Picchu, will be the last time you see your luggage until you return to your Cusco hotel that evening.
If you wish to have a change of clothes or anything else you may want with you that day, please pack it in your backpack that morning.
