About Inca Trail

The Inca Trail, nestled in the heart of the Andes Mountains, is an ancient pathway that weaves through breathtaking landscapes, rich history, and extraordinary archaeological sites. This iconic trail is renowned as one of the world's most famous trekking routes, leading intrepid adventurers to the majestic citadel of Machu Picchu.

The journey along the Inca Trail is a captivating exploration of Inca civilization, marked by stone-paved paths, ancient ruins, and awe-inspiring vistas. The trail spans approximately 26 miles (43 kilometers) and takes hikers through diverse ecosystems, from lush cloud forests to high mountain passes.

The trail starts at Kilometer 82, following the course of the Urubamba River, and gradually ascends to higher altitudes. Along the way, trekkers encounter significant archaeological sites such as Wiñay Wayna, an impressive Inca ruin with terraced fields and ceremonial structures.

The climax of the Inca Trail is the unforgettable arrival at Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, providing a panoramic reveal of the ancient citadel nestled among the peaks. The sight of Machu Picchu at sunrise is a truly magical moment that rewards the physical and spiritual journey.

Due to its popularity and environmental sensitivity, access to the Inca Trail is regulated, and a limited number of permits are issued each day. Trekkers are advised to secure their permits well in advance to embark on this extraordinary adventure.

The Inca Trail is not merely a physical challenge; it is a pilgrimage through time, allowing modern-day explorers to trace the footsteps of the ancient Inca people and witness the marvels they left behind.

Gran experiencia que combina lo maravillo de la naturaleza con la aventura, la visita a las Islas Ballestas fue espectacular con el Candelabro y los lobos marinos y estar en Huacachina haciendo buggy sandboarding y ver el atardecer es maravilloso. Todo es perfecto en este lugar, definitivamente lo recomiendo.
