There are many original Inca Trails in the Andes, but the most famous section, simply known as The Inca Trail, is the original route to the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu. Spread over 4 Days, the 44 km trail starts at kilometre 82 (as it is 82 kilometres along the railroad from Cusco) through the Andes crosses three stunning high passes and encounters many ancient archaeological sites including Wilkarakay, Phuyupatamarca and the marvelous ruins of Llactapata, Runkurakay, Sayacmarcaculminating and obviously Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas (http://www.tierrasvivas.com/en/travel-blog/inca-trail-tours)
