THE SHORT INCA TRAIL 2 DAYS

The Inca trail trek is one of the most famous treks in the world, the Inca Trail is as popular as it is ancient. The trek follows a section of ancient highway that connects the Inca capital city of Cusco with the mountaintop citadel of Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail route, which was part of a huge network spanning the entire Andes, was a vital artery for the Inca Empire, where royal messengers used a foot relay system to cover thousands of miles at an astonishingly rapid pace.

VALLE DE LARES TREK 5DAYS

For those who do not book far enough in advance (usually several months), there are other hikes that can be just as challenging and rewarding as the Inca Trail. Most notable among these is the Lares Trek. Unlike the Inca Trail, there is no limit on the number of those who can hike the Lares route. Despite this, though, it is always significantly less crowded than the Inca Trail. However, it ends prior to the entrance of Machu Picchu and Lares trekkers must take the touristed bus up to the site.
