THE INCA TRAIL
09 Days / 8 Nights
Enjoy four exhilarating days of hiking before emerging at the magical citadel itself through the Sun Gate. Altitude does make trekking here demanding but also an experience never to be forgotten.
The Inca Trail is considered one of the best trekking routes in the world. It walks part of an old Inca road leading to the sacred city of Machu Picchu (Old Mountain in Quechua). Along about 43 kilometers, we will pass through various ecological areas: With Salkantay Mountain as a background and other glaciers-considered sacred and called apus by the townspeople-, we will walk from the valley to the high puna and from here down to the cloud forest surrounding the famous citadel that is located on a valuable protected area called the “National Sanctuary of Machu Picchu”.
