Tour Details

Classic Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu is a four days trail from Cusco. It tops the bucket list of many travellers. To most, it is an experience of a lifetime to retrace the footsteps of Incas. The path they built over five hundred years ago. 

The trail has got all the deserving attention. National Geography magazine considers the legendary twenty six miles Classic Inca Trail Trek as one of the top twenty five treks in the world. In order to protect the environment, the authorities have imposed regulations. They allow just 500 people in a day. This includes chefs, guides and porters, leaving just 200 spots for trekkers. As a result, the permits tend to sell way in advance. Quite often it gets booked six to seven months in advance. 

The trail head is in Piscacucho, also known as kilometre 82. As the name suggests, the trail head is 82 kilometres away from Cusco. It lies halfway between Ollantaytambo train station and Aguas Calientes train station. Inca trail to Machu Picchu is a combination of natural beauty, history and mysterious Inca culture. You will be trekking through the snowcapped peaks and will descend to the cloud forest. It also takes you through many Inca ruins, the popular ones are Wiñay Wana and Intipunku (Sun gate).

Only those on Classic Inca Trail get the exclusive view of sunrise in Machu Picchu from the Sun gate.
