3 - difficult
4 - very demanding
5 - extreme
Stamina - Endurance
A mountain athlete needs endurance above any other specific fitness skill. Cardiovascular fitness is of course always subject to the movement (as climbing rocks or steep ice, you will not be able to transfer your triathlete or running fitness to mountains without being solid in the required mountaineering skills).
Easy treks to EBC or on top of Kilimanjaro. You should be an active person.
More demanding treks, simple climbs, like the climb of Elbrus. You should be a sportive person regularly exercising (at least 2-3x per week).
Very demanding treks like to the top of Aconcagua, or expeditions at the physical lower level like Ama Dablam. You should be an endurance athlete wit mountaineering experience. You should train endurance at least 3x/week.
Some of our special self-supported 8000m+ peak climbs as on Makalu, or to climb Everest (without oxygen-support) fit into this category. Your endurance should be near the level of a professional mountain athlete.

Day 4: Wayllabamba - Warmiwañusca Pass - Pacaymayo
After a comforting breakfast, we start our second day of trekking, perhaps the most difficult because we have to climb up to the Warmihuañusca pass, at 4,200 meters above sea level. This is the highest point of the Inka Trail, where we will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the snowy mountains that surround the pass. After lunch begins the descent to the valley of Pacaymayo, where we make our second camp.

We pass through a tunnel to reach the archaeological group of Phuyupatamarka. There the descent begins, along a highly attractive path, with dense vegetation, extremely rich fauna, and flora. We then arrive at Wiñayhuayna to set up our third and last camp.
Day 6: Wiñayhuayna - Sun Gate - Machu Picchu
The big day has arrived !!! After breakfast, we continue the walk to reach Intipunku (Sun Gate) and admire the spectacular sunrise in the lost city of Incas «Machu Picchu».
