Inca Trail 5D/4N

camino-inca-5d-4n

Trip Overview

Trip Overview

The Inca Trail is Peru’s most known hike, combining a stunning mix of Inca ruins, mountain scenery, cloud forest and rich subtropical jungle. Over 250 orchid species have been counted in the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary, as well as numerous birds such as hummingbirds, waterfowl and the majestic Andean Condor.

Located in the Andes mountain range, the trail passes through several types of Andean environments, including the cloud forest and alpine tundra. Settlements, tunnels, and many Incan ruins are located along the trail before ending the terminus at the Sun Gate on Machu Picchu mountain. The two longer routes require an ascent to beyond 3660 meters (12010 feet) above sea level.
