The Inka Trail To Machupicchu
 

 
For its unique beauty and historical, cultural, and natural worth, Machupicchu along with the Inka Trail and the neighboring ruins was declared a National Archeological park and Historic Sanctuary in 1970. It consists of 32,000 hectares with incredible cities and Inka temples, abundant flora and fauna with unique species many in danger of extinction This is, without doubt, one of the most magnificent hikes in the world because of the profusion of perspectives that confronts the explorer; who can walk amongst impressive views of peaks and glaciers into a tropical rain-forest, and in some places, see carved flagstones artistically decorating the trail, set there by the Inkas over 500 years ago.

The Cordillera Vilcanota with shining snow-peaks crowned by high clouds accompanies us for a large part of the trek and provides a contrast to the rain-forest, rich in orchids, epiphytes, flocks of parrots, multicolored butterflies and hummingbirds To add a final touch of magic, sections of the trail run through Inka tunnels and descend fabulous stairways of stone that lead to the most hidden of the Inka temples. To make this trip a pleasurable experience, the hike will be slow and easy. Our trained crew, will provide nutritious and delicious meals. Our porters will handle the equipment and luggage with expertise. On the last day of the hike, we will arrive at Inty Punku or Gate of the Sun, the best way to enter Machupicchu, then most sacred and hidden sanctuary of the Inkas.
