Why The Inca trail?
Limited availability of trail permits for the four day / three night Inca Trail makes this trek one of the most exclusive in the world.
The hike through the Andes Mountains to the Amazon basin was a pilgrimage and important trade route for hundreds of years by the ancient Incans.
The trail was burned and Machu Picchu was never found by the Spanish Conquistadors. Only recently was this historic gem re-discovered in 1911 by the famous Explorer Hiram Bingham.
