Inca Trail - 4 days

Inca Trail - 4 days

Inca Trail - 4 days and 3 nights

Cusco is the most visited department in Peru. The Sacred Valley of the Incas and the citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World are part of this city. This is the classic 4 day trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. This magnificent hike is for travelers who are in condition to hike up to 8 hours, with breaks, in a single day. The pace may be daunting for some, but the beauty and history of the area surround the hiker every step along the way. On the last morning we arrive at Machu Picchu with plenty of time to explore the ruins before returning to Cusco by train.

The 45km trek is usually covered in 4 days
The trek is rated moderate and any reasonably fit person should be able to cover the route. It is fairly challenging nevertheless, and altitudes of 4200m are reached, so ensuring that you are well acclimatized is important. If arriving from sea level, plan to spend at least 2 full days in Cusco (3 days is better) prior to commencing the trek. This should allow plenty of time for acclimatization and give you sufficient opportunity to visit the city of Cusco and nearby Inca ruins:

Sacsayhuaman, Q'enko, Pucapucara and Tambomachay, as well as spending a day or two exploring the Sacred Valley of the Incas visiting the tradition market town of Pisac and the fascinating Inca fortress at Ollantaytambo.
