The excitement and anticipation of knowing that you are hiking towards Machu Picchu, one of the world’s finest archeological gems will far outweigh any concerns you have about the moderate trekking challenge ahead of you. Following some 39 miles (64 km’s) of original Inca Trail you’ll venture deep into remote parts of the Andes, where few other visitors to Peru have ever ventured. Step by step you navigate your way through scenic mountain passes, slowly descending to the semi-tropical Peruvian jungle and onto the sanctuary of Machu Picchu. You’ll pass by untouched Inca ruins like Runcuracay, Llactapata and Wiñaywayna (a beautiful small Inca citadel). Don’t forget to look around you as you trek, as the Inca Trail is also rich in flora and fauna. Falcons, small hummingbirds, eagles and sometimes even Peru’s giant condor can be spotted. The Inca Trail is simply unforgettable, and one of the best trekking experiences available in Peru.
