Inca Trail to Machu Picchu Trek

Tour to Lima, Cusco and Machu Picchu Citadel
06 Days / 05 Nights

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu forms part of the more than 23,000 km of roads built by the Incas across South America.

Each year, some 25,000 hikers from all over the world walk the 43 km stone-paved Inca Trail, built by the Incas to get to the impregnable citadel of Machu Picchu, deep in the Cusco cloud forest.

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu sets out from Qorihuayrachina, at Kilometer 88 of the Cusco-Quillabamba railway, and takes three to four days of tough hiking. The route runs through an impressive range of altitudes, where climates and eco-systems range from the high Andean plain down to the cloud forests.

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu climbs up through two highland passes (the higher of the two, Warmiwañuska, lies at 4,200 masl) before reaching Machu Picchu through the Inti Punku or Gateway of the Sun. One of the attractions of the trail is that it winds past carved granite Inca settlements (Wiñay Wayna, Phuyupatamarca), and is surrounded by breath-taking natural scenery.

The forests abound in hundreds of species of orchids, brightly-colored birds and dream-like landscapes, the ideal complement to this indispensable hikers' route.

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu Trek is an unforgettable experience. Join our tours and treks to Machu Picchu and enjoy the magic of the Incas. .
