Inca Trail, Cusco & Machu Picchu, 5th: includes Santa Teresa Trek, Choquequirao Trek, Vilcabamba Trail, Vilcabamba to Choquequirao, Choquequirao to Machu Picchu & Lima City Guide

Overview

Lost to the jungle for centuries, Machu Picchu  was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham 100 years ago. It’s now probably the most famous sight in South America – and justifiably so. Perched high above the river on a knife-edge ridge, the ruins are truly spectacular. The best way to reach them is on foot, following parts of the original paved Inca Trail over passes of 4200m (13,500ft).
