Hiking Inca Trail in Peru: 19mm Prime or 14-42 Zoom?

I'm going to Peru to hike the Inca trail in September, and want to bring a camera to take pictures of the breathtaking views (with myself or my friends in the shot), mostly in the daytime. I've been using my G7 for videography for 3 years now, so I know what I'm doing for the most part, the area that needs the most work for photography is framing (I suck really bad at it).

We have to pack light, so I'm stuck with basically just the camera with whatever lens I have on it. So 2 questions:

  • First, which lens that I own is best for landscape shots (most of the time with people in the shots)
  • Second, how do I practice framing shots for landscape photography with my friends in it?

I have a Panasonic G7 and a Xiaoyi M1 camera, and 4 lenses:

  • 19mm f2.8 Sigma EX Prime
  • 14-42mm f3.5 Lumix G Vario Zoom
  • 12-40mm f3.5 Xiaoyi Zoom (rebranded Kodak Pixpro 12-45mm)
  • 42.5mm f1.8 Xiaomi Prime
This question has not been answered yet.
