Overview

INCA TRAIL 

Part of the 23,000 kilometers (approximately 14,000 miles) of roads built by the Incas in South America. It is the most famous route for hiking in Peru and possibly the most spectacular in the Americas. Each year, more than 25,000 walkers from around the world walk along the 43 kilometers of this cobbled road built by the Incas that leads to the amazing citadel of Machu Picchu located deep in the jungle of Cusco. The Inca Trail, with Machu Picchu as its final destination, is the most popular and well-known tour among tourists. The total walk is approximately 43 kilometers and takes 4 days, including a day of visit in the
Archaeological Park of Machu Picchu. The surrounding nature takes your breath away. With breathtaking views of snow-capped mountains, the hike through the jungle amidst amazing archaeological remains is an unforgettable experience.

 

Difficulty: Hard

Preparation: very good more acclimatization in Cusco of at least 2 days.

 

IMPORTANT: due to the great demand that this excursion has, the Peruvian government in its eagerness to protect the Inca road network has LIMITED ACCESS to the Inca trail from 4 days to 500 people per day, being approximately 180 tourists and the rest personal of help (guides, cooks and porters).
In this sense If you want to make the excursion in the month of October to January we recommend making your reservation more than 3 months in advance and with 6 or more months in advance for the months of March to September due to the quotas for this season They sell out quickly.
