Hiking the Inca Trail tour to Machupicchu in Peru is South America’s greatest trekking adventures. And ranked as one of the three best treks of the world. The trail starts at an altitude of about 2,800 masl from Km 82/Piscacucho and traverses the Andes, crossing exciting sites like Dead Woman’s Pass which, at 4,200 meters high, is the peak point of the trek. A few other impressive Inca sites are waiting for you such as Wiñayhuayna or “Forever Young” before descending towards the always fascinating Machu Picchu (2,450 m).
It takes four days to reach the legendary Inca city and, with the exception of the Dead Woman’s Pass, getting to Machu Picchu is not too demanding.The Inca Trail Tour is rightly famous for its spectacular Andean scenery, full of snow-capped mountains between June and October, as well as the captivating Inca ruins you could meet along the way.
