Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

CATEGORY:

ADVENTURE, INCA ROAD, INCA ROAD AND THE BEST WALKS, MACHU PICCHU CUSCO, TRAVEL PERU


The journey through this Andean route is an unforgettable experience. The road is built with blocks of rock along its 48 kms, and is a path that crosses part of the Vilcabamba mountain range, so it has stairs inside its structure, as well as tunnels and wooden bridges that cross rivers, temperate valleys, jungle and the cold Andean heights.

The route attracts many tourists because it is a path that offers us a unique experience, offering incredible views of mountains with glaciers and the green valleys of tropical forests until arriving at the end of the path in the sanctuary of Machu Picchu.
The excursion is made with the assistance of guides, cooks, assistants and porters. A unique experience that awaits you.
