The classic hike along the historic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is considered by many to be one of the greatest short treks in the world. Importantly, our trek spends ample time in Cusco and exploring some of the impressive Inca sites in the Sacred Valley. This not only allows for us to acclimatise to the altitude, but also provides a fascinating introduction to Incan culture and history before heading out onto the infamous Inca Trail. During the trek we ascend the passes, jungle trails and cloud forest to appreciate the panorama of Andean peaks that would have inspired the Inca people as we make our way to Machu Picchu. Words cannot describe the exhilaration of the first sighting of the enigmatic ruins and we allow plenty of time to visit the massive sanctuary. Rather than heading straight back to Cusco we spend a night in Aguas Calientes which vitally gives us a second visit to the ruins and an opportunity to visit the majestic site at its best, early the following morning.
