Trek the tough ancient route of the amazing Inca Trail towards Machu Picchu
Among the world’s top hikes is the Inca trip that leads you towards Machu Picchu. Essentially the Inca Trail is a mountainous forest hike leading to the holy Inca city of Machu Picchu. The massive 43km trek normally takes 4 days to complete, before you eventually arrive at Machu Picchu. Inca Trail is considered as the best hike in Peru, combining a remarkable mix of Inca remains, green cloud forest, mountain scenery and a vivid sub-tropical jungle. More than 250 orchid species have been discovered in the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.
Those who wish to conquer the challenging Inca Trail will require a certain degree of fitness. However, age shouldn't obstruct your path. It is very essential to be properly acclimatized to this altitude. The utmost height over sea level on this path is 4200m therefore, we advise anyone travelling from the coastal area to spend a minimum of two days in the Cusco region before taking on this challenge. This time of the year is perfect to visit Cusco, the Sacsayhuaman ruins nearby and the spectacular Incan Sacred Valley.
