The Backpackers Guide to the Inca Trail – Book Review

Last year we did a two day hike to Machu Picchu while we were in Peru. It’s kinda mandatory that if you visit Peru, you’ve got to witness one of the truly awesome places on the planet!

However, we spent a lot of time researching and looking for the best tour guides to do the trek with. A lot of people just want to get the best information they can and make an informed decision about their trip/hike.

Luckily, our good friend Jonny Blair from Don’t Stop Living has just released an excellent ebook on Hiking the Inca Trail.

Honestly, we wish he’d written this sooner because it would have saved us a lot of time online and given us some solid information on everything related to the Inca Trail.

Here’s a quick run down of what to expect from the book

The Backpackers Guide to the Inca Trail is the excellent new e-Book from long term backpacker and travel writer Jonny Blair! Back in 2010 Jonny hiked the real Inca Trail in Peru and decided to write a completely expert guide on it to help others follow in his footsteps and also do the hike.

Jonny is excited that it is finally released and this should explain what is in the book before you decide to buy it. The book is a detailed 102 page guide to hiking the Inca Trail in Peru, with a full overview on how to get the most out of the hike as well as containing the author’s entire diary, hour by hour in tremendous detail from the four day hike!

The Backpackers Guide to the Inca Trail contains:

– Introduction to the Inca Trail
– How to book the Inca Trail
– Why you should do the real Inca Trail
– How to make sure you do the real Inca Trail and not one of the fakes
– How to prepare for the Inca Trail
– How to get the most out of the Inca Trail
– A guide to the settlements on the Inca Trail
– Jonny’s personal Inca Trail diary, hour by hour of the epic four day hike
– Photographs from the Inca Trail
– A resources section

The book might be 102 pages long, but it is just a mini taster for the mammoth “Backpacking Centurion” travel book on Jonny’s journeys which should be out sometime in 2015. Anyone interested in buying The Backpackers Guide to the Inca Trail, it can be purchased from sites such as e-Junkie, Don’t Stop Living and the popular Amazon website.

This book is mostly about the real Inca Trail but of course there are also other trails which meet up with the Inca Trail half way through, so this book will also be useful for you as long as you are experiencing some of the actual Inca Trail.

The book’s proud author Jonny Blair revealed “I loved the Inca Trail, it was a standout moment of travel for me and a brilliant experience. I am glad that others can now enjoy it and hopefully my book will help them.”

Hopefully this short article serves as a good guide to buying Jonny Blair’s book “The Backpackers Guide to the Inca Trail” which is available now from the links below. Be ready to hike through the marvellous valleys of Peru to the exquisite lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu!

Enjoy your trips.
