Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 5d/4n
The Inka Trail to Machu Picchu is the most renowned trek in the Peruvian Andes, and ranks among the most popular and beautiful in the world. This 43 kilometer trip combines a number of outstanding features, such as long hidden and rediscovered archaeological remains, stupendous mountain scenery, dense cloud forest containing an amazing diversity of flora and fauna, a truly astounding marvel of architecture and engineering as is the Inka Road, winding up in the most wondrous and dazzling prize of all: the Sacred Inca City of Machupicchu. The present 5-day program represents an excellent alternative that avoids the larger numbers and congestion of trekkers encountered in the course of the standard 4-day trip through the use of different campsites, utilizing lesser known and more remote ones. It is likewise preferable and more recommended for families with children, since it affords a better and longer period of acclimatization to altitude as well as shorter daily walking distances than the 4-day version does.
