The Inca Trail is the most famous hike in South America.
Although the total distance is only about 39km, the
ancient trail laid by the Incas from the Sacred Valley
to Machu Picchu winds its way up and down and around the
mountains, snaking over three high Andean passes en
route, which have collectively led to the route being
dubbed ‘the Inca Trail.’ The views of snowy mountain
peaks, distant rivers and ranges, and cloud forests
flush with orchids are stupendous...
