We stopped here on our trek to Machu Picchu and will always remember the visit. It’s so hard to understand how the Incas could construct such impressive structures in such remote locations. The fact that you can only access the site by trekking there makes...More

We paid for this hike in advance and were worried that it might be too difficult for us. We are so glad we did it! We went with our excellent guide, James, twoworldsperutours.com

Every part of this city is special and you cant help wondering about how difficult it must have been to build it.

After a long third day on the Inca Trail the last thing that you want to do is a side track to another attraction. However, you are missing out big time if you do not find the extra energy to make the relatively short 15...More

Hi Bence, I was there in May 2017 and we came up from the rail line (the one day hike of the Trail). You go through a checkpoint at that location and they record passport information etc. I don't believe that they let you... More
