Inka Trail Classic
SUMMARY: This is Peru's best known hike, combining a stunning mix of Inca remains, mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest and rich subtropical jungle. More than 250 species of orchid have been spotted at the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary, in addition of several birds such as hummingbirds, waterfowl and Andean Condor. The highlight of the Sanctuary is the spectacled bear - a shy, herbivorous animal that is extremely rarely seen and close to extinction. In essence the Inca Trail is a mountainous jungle hike leading to the sacred Inca city of Machu Picchu. The 45km trek is usually covered in 4 days, arriving at Machu Picchu at daybreak on the final day before returning to Cusco by train in the afternoon. Climbing Huayna Picchu is not possible unless you show up at gate around 6AM, so if you have plans for this, please consider staying one extra night (not included) at Aguas Calientes for a day-after second visit to Machu Picchu.
