Inca Trail Hikes

With its mist-shrouded peaks and cliff-hugging footpaths, the Inca Trail is a near-mystical experience for many travelers. Beginning at the tiny Andean village of Chilca, it snakes along three lofty mountain passes, numerous cloud forests, and dozens of pre-Colombian ruins before arriving at Intipunku, the Inca Sun Gate that frames a majestic early-morning view of Machu Picchu. The four-day trek along this section of Capac Ñan, the ancient Inca road network, can be challenging for some, but those who undertake it inevitably find its scenery and glimpses of a vanished people to be life-changing. An essential part of any South American vacation.
