Inca Trail Hiking Hiking The Inca Trail

The Inca Trail hiking is by far the most famous trek in South America and is rated by many to be in the top 5 treks in the world. In just 26 miles (43km) it manages to combine beautiful mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and, of course, a stunning mix of Inca paving stones, ruins and tunnels. The final destination of the trail just cannot be beaten: Machu Picchu, the mysterious "Lost City of the Incas". In this Machu Picchu hiking tour route, we will follow the original footprint of the Incas toward Machu Picchu Sanctuary. This path keeps the ancestral history, the great road development the Incas had to integrate a Great Empire. Through these four days you will have the opportunity to walk along the original route by the Incas, see amazing archeological sites and hike to the Dead Woman's Pass so famous (or infamous) for its altitude. At 4,215m (13,828 ft), it's the highest (and most dreaded) point of the Inca Trail hiking, and nearly 1,800m (5,905 ft) higher than the altitude of Machu Picchu. You will finally descend through the Cloud Forest with wonderful biodiversity in Flora and fauna followed by the entrance to the citadel of Machu Picchu in this Machu Picchu hiking tour.
