Machu Picchu Hikes

So you know Machu Picchu is on your list, but you need to know which treks include this great marvel within their package?
This section lets you know, helping you decide your best route and treks

1.-Classic Inca Trail

The classic Inca Trail is the most popular trek to Machu Picchu, which follows the original trails that the Incas would have taken from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu. Along the way, trekkers are treated to numerous impressive Inca sites and stunning scenery.

Roughly sixty percent of visitors reach Machu Picchu by train, and 500 hikers start on Inca Trail daily, Peru’s most famous trek. Technically, all these treks follow ‘Inca’ trails, but only one is known as the ‘classic route.’ (Securing a permit for the Inca Trail must be done 4-6 months in advance.)

2.-Salkantay Trek

The Salkantay Trek is a high mountain pass trek that will challenge you more than our other experiences over a 5D/4N Route. It is the most popular trek, 2nd only to the Inca Trail  as it allows you to not only end up at cloud forest to behold the amazing Machu Picchu but also travel through snowy mountains passes and descend into warm tropical rainforest. The route boasts the famed Salkantay Mountain / Nevada Salkantay, which is one of the highest mountains in the Peruvian Andes. Another basis for its appeal is to see this majestic snow capped peak. You have no need to purchase a permit to undertake this trek, unlike the Inca Trail

3.-Inca Jungle Trek

The Inca jungle tour is an exclusive trek to Machu Picchu for the ultimate adventurer! This trek has something for everybody- it is perfect for those who like adventure while enjoying beautiful scenic views! 

This action-packed tour allows you to experience the extraordinary views of Machu Picchu after a three-day adventure of hiking and biking through the mountains, jungle, and a section of the ancient Inca trail; river rafting on the Vilcanota river; and flying through the air on zip-lines in the Santa Teresa canyons. 

The beginning of Mountain biking ride starts at an altitude of 4,250 m.a.s.l. and then it descends to only 1,800msl. The bike ride offers you a visit to the Inca ruins, a view of splendid waterfalls, meeting local settlers, and a chance to collect exotic fruits along the path! Like the icing on the cake, we continue the trek the next day through the coffee, coca plant, and subtropical fruit. 

On the third day of the trek, you go to Aguas Calientes and have the best time making the ZIP Line. Last day we reach the overwhelming Incan citadel – Machu Picchu, where our Tour Guide explains each part’s function and history.

Short Inca Jungle 3 day option!

The Inca Jungle trek also is available as a 3-day tour. It is ideal if you don’t have a more restricted time scale or budget. However, it excludes the second day, removing the full-day high-altitude hike from your schedule. The option, unfortunately, means you will not pass through the local land touring the coffee and Cacao plantations.

Lares Trek 4 days

This 4-day adventure is designed for people who want to know part of the real thing. Peru. Because in this place, we will be able to appreciate the real Inca descendants, purely Andean populations, who prevail in the Andean culture. Their way of life, their rituals, and their payments to Pacha Mama.
The trek will take you through stunning Mountain scenery over high camping, and you will spend three nights near traditional Peruvian Villages surrounding nice landscapes. On the second day, we will be relaxing in the hot springs will give your body the energy you need for the other three days of travel and trek you have left.

His belief in the apus and mountain spirits, The grazing of the Llamas, Alpacas, their customs, their houses, made of stone, with their thatched roofs, and their traditional clothing are one of the most authentic forms of ancient Peru that they still maintain All this combin
