Inca Trail

Inca Trail

This is the quintessential pedestrian street of South America. 43 km / 26.7 mi, through forests, lakes, steps and thousands of years old stones. The trail will take you from Cusco to the impressive ruins of Macchu Picchu, the "Lost City of the Incas", where you can feel the power of the empire that founded that civilization between the 15th and 16th century.

The trail can be done at any time of the year except February, when it is closed for maintenance. Also during that month the rains tend to be constant in the region. Most adventurers prefer to do this in the austral winter (June to August), though if you are a person who runs away from the crowds, you better plan it from March to May and September to November. 

It is a route that can not be walked freely. You need to organize it through a licensed operator. There are different alternatives: "The Way of two days" (includes a significant rise from km 104 to Wiñay Waina), the "Excursion to Lares" (mode with a more cultural approach, which includes visits to Inca archaeological sites and Andean peoples), the "Tour Salkantay" (from 5 days, is the longest route and goes from the jungle to points that far exceed 4,000 m / 13,000 ft altitude) and "El Camino del Inca jungle" ( the most common and its popularity has led operators to offer it as a two or five day long hike).

What else is there
Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It offers so many sights that it is even known as the "Rome of America". There you will see pre-Columbian and colonial buildings, among which are the Cathedral, the Plaza Mayor and the Hatun Rumiyuq route, which runs along land formerly belonging to the Inca Roca Palace and where you will find the famous "Stone of twelve angles".

Given the high demand for this route and that the daily quota is limited to 500 people, you better reserve well in advance. Remember that only authorized tour operators can manage these permits. Check availability of places in the Ministery of Culture of Peru.
