The glory and mystery of Machu Picchu is best appreciated by following the footsteps of its creators on the famous Inca Trail. The trail undulates through the Peruvian Andes, passing through several ecological strata from high Andean tundra to lush green cloud forests. Along its narrow and often steep paths trekkers are rewarded with experiences of not only the flora and fauna of the Andes, but also several Incan and pre-Incan archaeological sites. On the final day the breathtaking panorama of Machu Picchu is revealed for the first time through the Intipunku ‘Sun Gate’ before descending to marvel at this lost city and its amazing scenery.
