Inca Trail Trek 4 Days

Inca Trail Trek is a standard trekking package that ensures the total enjoyment of the nature in Peru; this package also includes a day tour of UNESCO World heritage site of Machu Picchu. However, the package can be customized to your requirements; budget and departure date. Inca Trail Trek is one of the best trekking in the world. It probably is the only place on earth, where you can feast your eyes on the dramatic view of amphitheater-shaped Mountains. Inca Trail Trek is 45 kilometer trekking route includes three high passes one of which reach to 4,200m; also includes incredible Inca settlements and the most important is the icon of the Incas – Machu Picchu.

Trekking in this national park is beautifully accompanied by the amazing variety of terrain including, lowland pastures, bamboo forest, alpine scrub and culturally and artistically rich villages. Inca Trail Trek combines the best of both types of travel: a four day-walk to the outstanding Machu Picchu, that winds through the area where the snow-capped Mountains crash into the lush of Amazon jungle, creating some of the world’s most dramatic and beautiful terrain. Many experts believe that the Incas blazed this 26 miles trail five centuries ago as a holy pilgrimage that prepared visitors to enter to the holy Machu Picchu.
