Move over, Everest. The Inca Trail is far and away one of the world’s greatest hikes, combining stunning landscapes with a walk back through history to the near mythic time of the Incas. You’ll feel like the Incan royalty who came before you as you walk through Inti Punku – the Sun Gate – and into the unparalleled ancient city of Machu Picchu. No other trek offers this memorable experience!
If you don’t mind battling the crowds – the one drawback of the Inca Trail – you will be endlessly rewarded as you pass snow-capped mountains and alpine tundra before descending into lush cloud forest and sub-tropical Andean jungle, passing one incredible archaeological site after another along the way.
