Travelling the Inca trail is a unique lifetime experience. Go through the ancient inhabitants of Peru used to cross to build the empire.
The Incas built a highly advanced network of nearly 40,000 kilometers of trails to connect the distant corners of their vast empire that stretched from Quito in Ecuador down to Santiago in Chile and east to Mendoza in Argentina. Cusco, a city in the Peruvian Andes, was once capital of the Inca Empire, and is now known for its archaeological remains and Spanish colonial architecture was in the heart of this great empire.
