The real Inca Trail is a walking route that leads through the mountains above the Urubamba river, following (at least partly) the course of an old Inca roadway leading to the city of Machu Picchu.

The various ruins along the way serve to heighten the hiker's sense of anticipation as you approach the amazing Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu.

The Inca Trail, with Machu Picchu as itīs final destination, is the best known and most popular hike among tourists. The total hike is about 45 kms and it takes four days alltogether, including a one day visit to the ruins.
