Inca Trail in Peru is one of the most popular hikes in the world. It brings thousands of tourists to Cusco each year to experience this unique four day hike in the Sacred Valley. Trekkers will pass many magnificent archeological ruins and native flora and fauna, while treading along a truly unique path, carved hundreds of years ago, on the way to the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu. Many hikers are especially intrigued to observe the sunrise from Inti Punku on the morning of the fourth day, as the Inca’s may have done in their time. From Inti Punku you will endure the last part of the trail and you will arrive to Machu Picchu the ancient city of the Inca’s. Upon arrival all of the sweat and tears of the previous three days dissolve away and you will be greeted with a huge sense of achievement.
