Popular Treks to Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail is one of those iconic treks that everyone should do it once in the life. Inca trail covers a distance of 45km or 26mls that normally takes four days trekking; the goal of this unique trek is that at the end you’ll reach to one of the most important tourist destination in the world – Machu Picchu. This beutiful Inca trail is well preserved and all of them is paved with stones, often that rail climbs up and descent.
The opportunity of trekking through the Andean Mountains for four days culminating in a sunrise arrival at Machu Picchu is something that one could never refuse; so, just booked your ticket for the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

For the Inca Trail on the first we normally start very early. You’ll be transferred by bus to the starting point of the trek and met your guide, cook and porters. Then you’ll trek with the group escorted by your guide; after you check the permits in the control point you’ll cross the bridge and started walking up what looked like a steep incline; scenery is breath-taking. Urubamba River roared beneath and the snow-capped peaks formidable. The Inca Trail is a one-way trip, but some people (usually those who haven’t spent any time acclimatizing) have to turn back early on due to altitude sickness.

Inca trail climbs up toward the “Dead Women’s Pass” located at an altitude of 4,200masl. This is considered the hardest part of the trek. From this point of the trek one is rewarded with splendid views; down several valleys and up many picturesque mountains. After that the Inca trail continues more manageable.
