Hiking to the Lost City of the Incas; Machu Picchu
Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the best hikes that exist in the world for its exquisite natural beauty and different ecological niches ranging from high deserts to tropical forests. During their empire, the Incas created a vast network of roads that goes throuhout the Andes from Argentina to Colombia and from the coast to the Amazon rain forest. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a branch which goes from the Andes to the jungle. The Inca Trail is not the only hike that ends at Machu Picchu There are amazing alternative treks like: Salkantay Trek, Lares Trek, Choquequirao Trek and Huchuy Qosqo. Once you are at Machu Picchu you can take the opportunity to hike Huaynapicchu Mountain which offers amazing views of the ruins and lots of opportunity to take photos. Whatever path you take, you will have an amazing reward when you first see the "Lost City of the Incas": Machu Picchu
