    The Inca Trail is the most popular trekking route in South America.

    After four days of hiking through Inca ruins and over the mountain pass, you get the first spectacular view of Machu Picchu from the Sun Gate.

    The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu was undoubtedly made to give the royal class of the incas a sense of belonging to nature and its gods. At each lock out point and after each turn comes a view that is more beautiful than the previous one. The ever-more beautiful buildings, all located in places with a particularly stunning view, were not built as residential cities, but rather served as ceremonial centers.
