Machu Picchu: Walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Visit Us

Walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Difficulty rating:

Challenging
 

The Inca Trail is one of the world’s most famous treks, and rightfully so. This tough four-day journey to the mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu starts on the river bank of the Urubamba and climbs up to mountain passes nearly 5,000 metres above sea level.  Passing a number of lesser-known Inca sites along the route, you'll be treading in the footsteps of the Incas themselves on an original ancient stone path skirting jagged mountains and dipping to subtropical cloud-forest.

The highlight for many is arriving at dawn on the fourth day to walk through the Sun Gate and see Machu Picchu laid out before you, resplendent in the remote Andean setting that kept this 'lost city' hidden for centuries.

3 nights are spent under canvas. However, this is a fully assisted trek with a knowledgeable guide to lead the way and a fantastic team of porters who carry all equipment and have the camp set up by the time you arrive. There are 3 hot meals a day, providing you with the fuel to face what is undoubtedly a demanding, yet enormously rewarding experience. Return to Cusco via a spectacular train ride through the narrow Urubamba gorge.
