Follow in the footsteps of the Spanish Conquistadors and early 20th Century explorers as you cross the high Peruvian Andes in search of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Inca. The trek route departs from the bustling colonial mountain town of Cusco and winds its way through breathtaking mountain passes, past sacred mountains and on through humid jungle trails to reach the fabled ruins of Machu Picchu.
Tough! This is a multi-day trek through diverse ecosystems and altitudes. The mountain passes are steep and high (over 4000m) and there are several hours of trekking a day so you will need to be in good physical shape to complete this challenge
11 days in total with 6 days of trekking (trip extension is available)
You will be accommodated in friendly hostels, simple hotels and tents during the trekking days.
