One of the most popular tours in Peru is the Inca Trail trek, which covers approximately 5000 kilometers. The route starts from the town of Pisac’s historic center across the south rim of the Sacred River Canyon. Along the way, you will visit Wayllabamba, the site where the Inca master builders first constructed their civilization, and Ollantaytambo, one of the world’s oldest cities. The magnificent Inca Trail follows the path of the Inca Trail, a massive road that was used by the Incas in their campaigns against marauding Spanish troops.

However, most travelers choose to trek out into the wilderness and experience the wonderful scenery that the Inca ruins contain. When choosing a guided tour or backpacking trip, it is imperative that you follow a detailed tour itinerary, which includes the times and days of the walking tours, which destinations you will visit, and the number of people who will be participating in them.

The Andes treks are among the highest, most challenging treks in the world. A variety of Andean mountain peaks and jungles offer the perfect setting for this trek, which stretches over 21 days between Peru and the remote Andes Mountains.
