MACHU PICCHU HIKING TOURS
EVERYTHING YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW
Taking a hiking tour to Machu Picchu is almost a religious experience for most visitors. It will probably be the only chance you have to experience a site of this caliber and reputation, a unique treasure of humankind.
The mysterious aura surrounding this magnificent city captivates even the least spiritual person. The feeling of awe and wonder quickly overtakes the most skeptical individuals as soon as they get absorbed by the impressive setting in which this place was constructed.
Machu Picchu was built on top of a mountain ridge overlooking a number of natural features such as snowcapped mountains, caves, rivers, and magnificent views of the milky way, which the Inca revered as deities.
You will get to experience all of it once you know everything about the hiking tours of Machu Picchu.
Five-Day Inca Trail Tour to Machu Picchu.

Distance covered: 31.06 Miles / 50 Km
Highest Elevation: Dead Womans' pass: 13,800ft / 4,201m
The five-day Inca Trail is the best way to hike the Inca Trail.
It offers the opportunity to explore almost every single Incan site located within the Machu Picchu National Sanctuary while giving you the leisure of having the trail and some campsites practically entirely to yourself.
Except for day one, the route followed by this itinerary is almost entirely the same as the four-day option. Due to the different arrangements of campsites and itineraries, the five day Inca Trail provides a chance to have a second visit to Machu Picchu. First, on the fourth day at sunset, and again on the last day in the morning for the sunrise.
There are no group tours for this itinerary; most five-day Inca Trail tours are operated on a private basis. Read more here.
