4 Day Inca Trail Hike to Machu Picchu, popularly known as Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of our signature treks. It is a 500 years old trail through which the Incas used to hike from Cusco to their sacred citadel, Machu Picchu.
Quite recently, the popular travel magazine, National Geography listed Inca Trail as one of the top twenty five treks in the world. Most people who visit Machu Picchu, prefer hiking the esteemed trail and to reach the citadel the Incas way.
However, due to the growing popularity and to protect the trail from hazards, local authorities restrict just 500 people a day. This includes porters, guides and chefs. So barely 200 hikers get to hike a day. The trail often sells out six months in advance.
The trailhead is at Km 82. It is a point that is 82 kilometres away from Cusco on the way to Machu Picchu. The trailhead is located halfway between Ollantytambo and Aguas Calientes.
This is one of the most rewarding treks to Machu Picchu. It offers diverse views from snow capped peaks to cloud forests.
The trail is also dotted with many less popular and undiscovered archaeological sites. The highlight of the trail is the Dead Woman’s pass, Wiñay Wayna and Inti Punku (Sun Gate). View of the sun rising on the Inca Citadel from the Sun Gate is exclusive to those on the Inca Trail.
