Inca jungle adventure to Machu Picchu 4 days

p>The Inca Jungle Trail to Machu Picchu is a popular alternative route where you can not only go trekking, but also biking, zip lining, and rafting while enjoying the great views, an original Inca trail, and fruit and coffee plantations! The following route is the typical 4 Day option of going on the Inca Jungle Trail.

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.
