Hike on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu
In the Quechua native language, Machu Picchu means Old Peak or Old Mountain. Majority people travel to Machu Picchu from Cusco on a 4-hour train journey. However, the more interesting way to get to Machu Picchu is to take the “Caminos Del Inca” (classic Inca Trail) – a 4-day trek to Machu Picchu. More than 7,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains, it is the most visited tourist destination in Peru and one of the most popular trekking trails of the world. A symbol of the Incan Empire and built around 1450AD, Machu Picchu was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.
