Trekking The Inca Trail

– A Day By Day Guide

Kilimanjaro Routes

The lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu. Even the name has an exotic tone to it. Add onto that visit, 4 days trekking the Inca Trail, and you have yourself one hell of an adventure that’s more accessible than you might think.

What many people discover upon arrival at Machu Picchu is that it certainly lost no more. It is Peru’s most popular tourist attraction. A popularity that is itself putting the site in jeopardy.

One thing that trekking the Inca Trail will give you is an appreciation of the hardships the Incas had to endure and overcome just to survive. The solitude throughout those 4 days is as eye-opening as the ruins you will see along the way. Ruins every bit as stunning as the main site.

One thing you will notice as you walk triumphantly through the sun gate on the last morning is how deafeningly loud it is in Machu Picchu and part of you will wish you could spend just a little longer on the trail.
