Definitely a route that today remains a busy thoroughfare for tourists to reach one of the Wonders of the world modern "Machu Picchu".
The trip ends with a visit to the Inca citadel of Machupicchu.
Be sure to reserve a place on the Inca Trail to you as soon as possible, as there are a limited number of permits issued by the Peruvian government. There are only places for 500 people a day and only about 200 of these quotes are for hikers while it's rest is for the guides, cooks and porters.
