The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is rated among the best trekking trips in the world because of the exquisite beauty of it's natural surroundings, these include different ecological areas from high deserts to Andean rainforest.

 

The Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu is one of the best trekking tours in the world, due to its natural beauty composed by different ecologic niches, which vary from high deserts to Andean tropical rainforests.

The Inca traveled through his empire by using a vast network of roads that crossed the Andes from Argentina to Colombia and from the coast to the Amazonia. The Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu is a branch which goes from the Andes towards the jungle and requires certain physical effort, but you should keep in mind that there is another option, the Inca trail to Choquequirao, which is equal in beauty and of fewer physical exigency than the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu.

The trail makes its way through the high Andean Mountains, sculping the rock in a fantastic sample of the high level reached by the Inca engineering. It is a royal way, as it was used by the Inca and his court to get to the sacred city of Macchu Picchu; for this reason, important archeological inca and pre-inca remains can be observed along the way.

Here we will have time to take pictures of the beautiful landscapes, then, we will walk for another hour and a half until arrive to the Wayllabamba site at 3000 m above the sea level, where we will make a camp site.
