If you are traveling to Peru in 2017 or 2018 and you want to do the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu,
- Cusco was once the heart of the Inca Empire? This is why there are many trails in the mountains surrounding Cusco. In the last 30 years, the traditional Inca Trail has been gaining popularity. This route passes several important Inca sites: Runcuracay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatmarca, Wiñay Wayna and ends at Machu Picchu. Those sites can only be visited by hikers of the Inca Trail! During this trek, you will go back in time as you follow the footsteps of the Incas along their roads and explore the ruins of their ancient cities.
- The Inca Trail is the only trek in which you actually walk all the way to Machu Picchu? Along the way, you will walk through some amazing nature. The Inca Trail combines incredible mountain scenery, cloud-forests, and subtropical jungle, and you will also walk along a stunning mix of Inca paving stones, ruins, and tunnels towards the Lost City of the Incas. Other, alternative treks to Machu Picchu also offer the amazing Peruvian scenery, but the privilege of arriving by foot in Machu Picchu is only for the Inca Trail hikers!
How and Where Book The Inca Trail
The Inca Trail is one of the most famous and impressive treks of Peru. Every year, thousands of travelers are lured to the Peruvian Andes to experience the magic, beauty and outright challenge of hiking this legendary trek. Since the Inca trail is a protected zone, you can only do the trek if you have secured a government Inca Trail Permit that only licensed agencies in Peru can sell.
Only authorized trekking companies in Cusco are allowed to operate the Inca Trail and there is only a limited number of Inca Trail permits available per day: 500, including hikers and staff. Fortunately, Dos Manos Peru Travel is one of those 26 authorized Inca Trail Operators in Cusco!
So, if you want to hike the Inca Trail, you have to book it several months in advance. The Inca Trail is a very popular trek, so it is almost “always” sold out. Book the Inca Trail now.
