Inca Trail

Inca TrailsThe Inca trail to Machu Picchu is the trek of a lifetime.

There are treks that can take you to higher altitudes, take to you to older and larger archaeological sites and nature reserves with more wildlife viewing... yet none of them arrive through the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu, the most photogenic ruins on earth!

The Inca Trail is without dispute the most famous trek in South America and is considered as one of the 5 top hiking journeys on the planet.

A hiking journey on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu combines the impressive scenery of the Andes in Peru, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and, of course, a breathtaking blend of Inca stones pavement, archaeological ruins and tunnels.

This trip allows a taste of the Inca Trail without days of hiking and camping. We begin the hike from the train stop at Kilometer 104 and follow the trail for six hours to the spectacular view of Machu Picchu from Inti Punku, The gate of the Sun. From here we descend into the world famous “Lost City”. After a restful night in a hotel, We return to Machu Picchu at dawn to see the ruins in perfect morning light. In the afternoon, We return to Cusco by train.

Machu PicchuThe Inca Trail is Peru's best known hike, combining a stunning mix of Inca ruins, mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest and rich subtropical jungle. Over 250 species of orchid have been counted in the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary, as well as numerous birds such as hummingbirds, waterfowl and the majestic Andean Condor. The star of the Sanctuary is the spectacled bear - a shy, herbivorous animal that is extremely rare and close to extinction.
Essentially the Inca Trail is a mountainous jungle hike leading to the sacred Inca city of Machu Picchu. The 45km trek is usually covered in 4 days, arriving at Machu Picchu at daybreak on the final day before returning to Cusco by train in the afternoon.

The trek is rated moderate and any reasonably fit person should be able to cover the route. It is fairly challenging nevertheless, and altitudes of 4200m are reached, so ensuring that you are well acclimatized is important. If arriving from sea level, plan to spend at least 2 full days in Cusco (3 days is better) prior to commencing the trek. This should allow plenty of time for acclimatization and give you sufficient opportunity to visit the city of Cusco and nearby Inca ruins at Sacsayhuaman, Q'enko, Pucapucara and Tambomachay, as well as spending a day or two exploring the Sacred Valley of the Incas visiting the tradition market town of Pisac and the fascinating Inca fortress at Ollantaytambo.
