Inca Trail Vs Inca Jungle

The Classic 4 day Inca Trail allows you to trek the famous route seeing ancient ruins and settlements along the way. If what you’re looking for is history and culture then the Inca trail is for you. However, you do need a permit for this trek so booking months, even a year in advance is necessary. If you are looking for a more alternative way to reach the revered Machu Picchu then the Inca Jungle trek is for you. This one’s for our adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers. Experience cloud forest and the Andean mountains by white water rafting, mountain biking, trekking and zip lining your way through. This trek needs no Inca Trail Permit so if you are a little impulsive there is no need  to book months and months in advance.
