The long Inca Trail leads from the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu (or in reverse), and is only for the savvy walker/climber. It's a 2-3 hour walk, but the views are worth it, and because of the altitude, it's best to stop often, take in the magnificent views, rest, take pictures, and move on. Indescribably awesome.

My wife and I walked the Inca Trail with Peru Treks. Their service and professionalism were excellent. Our two guides were very good. The meals were excellent, and the porters did a wonderful job as well. The Trek was hard, but at the end very satisfying. We are glad we did it.

we exited this completely alive and well, its a matter of surviving when someone from the plains go to a trek at more than 12,000 feet for 4 days and finis in the best place of the world.

I had wanted to do the Inca Trial for years and I was not disappointed. The experience was better than I had hoped for!! We had bad weather on the third day...heavy rain and fog all day, but that was forgotten when on the 4th day we had perfect weather for seeing Macchu Picchu!! If you are thinking of doing... More

We chose to do the 4 day hike with Bamba experience. The tour guides were very good as our team was split with novices including myself and full time hikers but accommodated both and made sure you weren't left behind. I would recommend a good walking experience as the hills are killers 4200m 2nd day and 3900 3rd day. The... More

We coupled the Machu Picchu visit with a one-day hike of the Inca Trail (what most tour guides call the 2 day / 1 night Inca Trail hike). This consists of a full day of hiking the Inca Trail on the 1st day, staying at the town of Aguas Calientes (many trying to change the name of the town to... More
