Machu Picchu is one of the best attraction points for trekkers, all that you need is effort some enthusiasm and good humor.
The trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most rewarding trips in the entire world.
It is not easy but not impossible either, the inca trail requires crossing above 4200 m.a.s.l and descending over uneven Inca paving. DO NOT forget to pack appropriated clothing and footwear, because the temperature ranges from 19°C to 3°C.
Nowadays is not necessary to hike there, but is good to know that a person who likes adventure sports can choose what they want, if they want to arrive just like the Incas did. This classic trekking route, generally takes between 4 or 5 days to arrive to Machu Picchu.
The trail continually passes between canyons and ridges, and the extensive stairways show diverse ecosystems. Hiking the Inca trail and through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu, is not only a great hike,it’s the prelude of an incredible network of such trails crossing the Andean rivers and mountain ranges.
If you have decided to hike the Inca trial to Machu Picchu, please keep in mind that the daily number of tourist accessing the trail is restricted. And the inka trail is closed throughout February for conservation projects.
