The Classic Inca Trail or Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is known as one of the most famous and cherished hiking journeys in the world. It consists of a 4 day trek to Machu Picchu. The attraction of this hike is the beautiful combination of Inca ruins, glorious mountains, exotic vegetation and amazing ecological diversity. The trail goes over high passes with memorable vistas, through cloud forest, and finally down into semi tropical vegetation. The Machu Picchu sanctuary is host to over 250 species of orchids and many varieties of rare birds, animals, reptiles, as well as some species that are on the brink of extinction. The highest point above sea level is 4200m so we advise anyone coming from the coast to spend 2 days in Cuzco prior to your trip, to acclimatize to the altitude. You can explore and discover one of Peru's most pristine landscapes and experience an Andean journey to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. This Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu involves 4 days with your professional guide, cook and porters with high quality camping gear.
