The Inca Trail or in Quechua Capac an is a communication lane that extended all the way through the entire Empire and had a distance approximately of 50000 km. All the roads are connected with the Empire Capital Cusco. At first before the Inca Empire , Capac an had a limited access because it was used only by the population of some cultures like Wari and Tiahuanaco, but when the Incas arrived the route was expanded to a great extent. This route was used for the invasion of the other civilization and taking control of the Entire Empire’s organization.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas or Urubamba Valley: Is a valley in the Andes of Peru, close to the Inca capital of Cusco and below the ancient sacred city of Machu Picchu. It is a fertile area, occupied by the Incas long time ago. Ruins are visible in the entire valley, with two important places like Pisac and Ollantaytambo.
