Inca Trail Trek

Follow the Legendary Footpath of the Inca in the Andes

Join us on this porter-sup­port­ed trek to one of South Amer­i­ca’s most inter­est­ing cul­tur­al sites. Machu Pic­chu is sit­u­at­ed at an alti­tude of 8,200 feet / 2499 meters in the Urubam­ba Riv­er Val­ley of Peru­vian Andes. Jun­gle growth cov­ered the desert­ed city for years and as a result it escaped notice by the Span­ish conquistadors.
