Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 4 Days
The most famous hike in South America, the four-day Inca Trail is walked by thousands every year. Although the total distance is only about 24 miles (39km), the ancient trail laid by the Incas from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu winds its way up and down and around the mountains, snaking over three high Andean passes en route, which have collectively led to the route being dubbed ‘the Inca Trail.’ The views of snowy mountain peaks, distant rivers and ranges, and cloud forests flush with orchids are stupendous – and walking from one cliff-hugging pre-Columbian ruin to the next is a mystical and unforgettable experience.
The 4 day tour along the Inca Trail, which is considered one of the world’s oldest pilgrimages and consistently ranked among the ten best hikes on the planet, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. As you walk though awe inspiring landscapes you will learn about the fascinating Inca history from your friendly guides and porters. Once you finally step through the Sun Gate and catch your first glimpse of the forgotten city of Machu Picchu you will realize the amazing accomplishment - not only by you but also by the feats of the ancient civilization; it’s a transformative moment.
