Classic Inca Trail (Qhapaq Ñan)

In South America we can find a series of Inca trail networks that are over 30,000 km and were used by the Incas to transport animals, food as well as to make the communication between the coast and highlands easier. All these trails are connected to Cusco city, the capital of the Tahuantinsuyo.

We can find these trail networks in places so distant such as Quito (Ecuador), Cajamarca (northeast of Peru) and even Bolivia and Chile. However, the best-known route connects

Cusco city to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas.  Currently, there are daily departures to go hiking on this route.

The Inca Trail trek consists of 4 days walking, camping on esplanades and cooking on the route. It is an intense trek, especially because of the area’s high altitude: the highest point is over 3,700 meters above sea level. Despite this, it is a unique experience because of the landscapes, the flora and fauna that nature offers us and as a grand finale the entry to the Machu Picchu citadel on the last day’s dawn.

The trek includes:
  • Professional guides that will oversee the whole group and will adjust to each one’s needs.
  • Inca Trail entrance tickets.
  • Personal carriers in charge of taking our bags and group carriers that will take the tents, food and cooking quipment throughout the trek.
  • Transportation from Cusco to the trek’s starting point and return train from Machu Picchu to   Cusco.
  • Food and water during the trek’s days.

Besides, the equipment includes a first-aid kit and satellite telephones to be in communication with the office at any time.

The reservations for 2020 are already available. Don’t miss the chance to know one of the Wonders of the World through one of the Incas’ most used trails. For more information please click here.
