Why You Should Book The Inca Trail To Machu Picchu
In South America, specifically, in the country Peru, a popular and unique hiking adventure is available along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. One of the most well-known portions of the Inca road system was built about 500 years ago, and is referred to as the Classic Inca Trail. The trail encompasses some 25,000 miles as it spans north to south through the countries of Peru, Chile, and Ecuador. At Cusi Travel, we can help you and your group experience a memorable Inca Trail tour.
What are your hiking options for the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu? There are different Inca Trail tour options available depending on your time available and the type of hike you want to do:
Inca Trail – 2D/1N
This two-day hike in Peru includes the same path the Incas traveled on their journey to Machu Picchu. The Trail brings you through historical ruins, a cascading waterfall, and the fauna and flora of the National Park. You also get a chance to see the preserved citadel in Machu Picchu two times. With the two-day journey, you can avoid the longer trail hike and camping that accompanies an extended journey, while still getting to see important sites and scenery of the historical Inca Trail.
Traditional Inca Trail Hike – 4D/3N
Finishing in Machu Picchu, during this four-day hike, you will journey the same path and steps that the Inca royalty traveled to reach their city. Some of the sites you will encounter include archaeological areas used for administrative functions, farming terraces, and lodgings. You also will pass through a range of flora and fauna among the various ecological zones. As you get closer to Machu Picchu, you will see stunning scenery mixed in with ancient history.
Salkantay Plus Inca Trail Hike – 6D/5N
During this six-day hike, you can reach one of the most elevated passes referred to as the Inca Chiriasca at 16,400 feet high. Before the trail connects to the Traditional Inca Trail, it passes through an isolated but beautiful valley. This hike, although extremely unique and rewarding, is considered a difficult trek due to the high altitude and long length.
