 THE TRAIL Built by the powerful Inca civilization around 1450, the trail required the use of
rocks that were transported from nearby quarries and delicately carved to fit in precision and meticulously. 

 THE NATURE The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu passes through a wide range of microclimates as a result of varying altitudes. Along this trail, travelers hike from high altitude to the high brow of the rainforest.

 ANCIENT INCA SITES   The trail takes hikers along valleys, and through mountain passes, and also grants access to the archaeological sites of Patallacta/Llactapata, Runkurakay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatamarca, Inti Pata, Wiñay Wayna, and the famous Inti Punku. The Inca Trail leads directly to Machu Picchu and offers an adventure of a lifetime.

 HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE The Inca trail to Machu Picchu holds great significance as it is the only hiking trail that grants access to Machu Picchu. After hiking for three days along valleys and through mountain passes, all hikers reach Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate – an important building of Machu Picchu that is not included on the main entrances of the Inca citadel.
