Machu Picchu is a renowned citadel of Incas. It is nestled at 2500 meters above the sea level. The Incas build this as their royal estate. They later abandoned it in less than 100 years as Spanish conquistadors invaded Peru.
The locals in the region were aware of the existence of the site. However, they never had an idea that it could be so awe-inspiring. Hiram Bingham III, an American professor re-discovered this masterpiece of Incan civilization in 1911.
As the gates of Machu Picchu opened for tourism, it quickly became popular. In order to maintain the beauty of the citadel, the authorities started limiting the number of visitors. Now, as of 2020, 6,534 visitors are allowed a day in two batches. One in the morning (preferred by most as you get to see the sunrise) and the other in the afternoon.
Due to limitations, tickets tend to sell months in advance.
There are many ways to reach Machu Picchu from Cusco. Most travellers prefer an overnight tour by train. While adventurers opt to trek through Salkantay, Lares or the renowned Inca Trail. Some opt for the four days Inca Jungle trek that offers a bit of everything from adrenaline activity to sightseeing.
This is the most preferred way to reach Machu Picchu. The trail offers a rewarding experience. As a result, it tend to sell out way in advance. Normally, the permit for hiking the Inca Trail tend to sell out six months in advance.
Our Inca Trail 5 Days Hike to Machu Picchu is an extension of the renowned Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
The trail extends over high mountains. It covers a distance of forty two kilometres. It shows a mysterious combination between archaeological sites, beautiful landscapes, impressive mountains and abundant cloud forest. These cloud forests are rich in Andean flora and fauna. This scenic route ends in Machu Picchu.
Our 5 Days Inca Trail is on the original cobble stone way that the Incas travelled on. The best thing about the trail, is that it is less crowded than the classic 4 days Trail.
We highly recommend you to be well acclimatised before the trail to avoid altitude sickness.
