      About this trip

       The Inca trail is one of the most popular treks in South America and is hiked by thousands each year. This trail was used as a communication system for the Incas to run from one place to another during the reign of the Inca Empire. This unique hike is full of stunning scenery, snowy mountain peaks, distant rivers and mountain ranges, cloud forests and Inca ruins. You will hike a total distance of approximately 43km over the duration of the trek and end at the world-famous Machu Picchu.

      Valley of the Incas. Before we reach our starting point, KM 82, we will have a short break in Ollantaytambo and have the option to get breakfast. 

      The official beginning of the Inca Trail is called KM 82. Here we will meet the rest of the group and register to start with the trek. After crossing the Rio Urubamba (2200m) we will start the legendary Inca Trail.

      The first day the trail is easy to walk and a good warm up for the following days. In Miskay we’ll have lunch at a small river bank while getting some information about the archaeological complex of Llactapata. After that, we will continue our hike to Wayllabamba (3100m/10170f) and ascend to Yuncachimpa (3300m/10826f), the camping site we will spend the night on.

      We had a great time in Lima and Cusco. The tours were amazing, the food incredible and the people we met along the way unforgettable. We had a minor set back that the agency was quick to fix. I totally recommend them.
