Inka Trail to Machu Picchu 4 Days

Inka Trail to Machu Picchu 4 Days
The Inka a 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

Day 1 .- Trekkers arrive from Cusco, either by train, getting off at the midway stop. Ollantaytambo, or Km 88, the preferred method of transport for many groups. (Starting at Km 82 doesn't add appreciable distance to the trail). After crossing the Rio Urubamba (Vilcanota), the first gentle ascent of the trail looms to inca ruins at Llaqtapata (also called Patallaqta where Bingham and his team first camped on the way to Machu Picchu). The path then ccrosses the Rio Cusicacha, tracing the line of the river until it begins to climb, until it reaches the small village (the only one still inhabited along the Trail) of Huayllabamba -a 2 - 3-hour climb. Most groups spend their first night at campsites here. Total distance: 10 to 11km (6-7 miles).
