The Classic Inca Trail & Alternative Hikes to Machu Picchu
The Inca Empire expanded throughout Peru into Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, and even Colombia – and the advanced enginieering of Inca roads tied it all together. At the end of the trek, be treated to incredible views of Machu Picchu from the Inti Punku Sun Gate. All our Inca Trail treks and alternative Inca trail tours are fully customizable – add a guided tour of Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and more!
There are two main ways to access Machu Picchu, the most impressive of the Inca ruins remaining today: either travel by scenic train, or take the more adventurous route and travel by foot along the classic 4-Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
The advantages of trekking to Machu Picchu are that you get to walk in the same path that the Incas did, you get to see many of the other Inca ruins that aren’t visible to those aboard the train, and you earn the privilege of entering Machu Picchu from the Inti Punku Sun Gate at sunrise – a magical experience.
The Incas were masters at building and maintaining footpaths and trade routes throughout their empire, which allowed for easy and efficient trading and communication. So it makes sense that the Inca Trails near Cusco hold a somewhat legendary status in the mind’s eye of modernity. To walk along the Inca Trails – whether the main 4-day trek through the Sacred Valley or one of the many alternative Inca Trails nearby – is to understand some of the technological and sociological advancements of the Inca Empire.
