Inca Trail Alternatives

Many of us enjoy a good trek and have done so all over the world, but you may be surprised to know that the high Andean country of Peru on the continent of South America has some of the most beautiful treks in the world. Thousands of tourists flock to Peru every year to do trekking. Without a doubt the most popular of the treks in the Inca Trail. This four-day hike is world-famous and includes some impressive Inca ruins and cloud forests to pass and explore. Due to the popularity of the trek, the entrance tickets sell out months in advance and Inca Trail availability can be hard to come by so if you plan to do the hike, keep that in mind. That’s why together with Machu Travel Peru we have prepared a small article about the most important Inca Trail Alternatives. All around the Cusco area, there are Inca Trail alternatives to explore the Andes and to arrive at Machu Picchu. But first of all, is the Inca Trail the same as Machu Picchu? Not really, the Inca Trail is a hiking trail that goes to Machu Picchu. The last day consists of a guided tour of the citadel. And what they have in common with the alternatives is their final destination.
