Machu Picchu is considered by many people to be the tallest and most advanced adventure park in South America. For those who have seen it, you know it’s a breathtaking experience. In this article I will share with you information regarding the different hiking packages available to you in Cusco, Peru. So, without further Ado, the first stop on our trip to Machu Picchu…
The primary focus of the Machu Picchu hike packages is on the hiking paths which take you up into the clouds to get an amazing view of the Inca civilization that once flourished in the region. There are numerous amazing hiking trails which have the potential to explore the spectacular scenery and amazing history of South America and the Inca Empire. Each trail offers different terrains such as open plains, high altitudes, jungles, forests and coves.
As we mentioned, the Machu Picchu hiked packages will start with the First Way. This trail leads you through the ruins of the Inca citadel in the southern region of the town of Huayna Picchu. We found this trail interesting because you get to experience firsthand the spectacular scenery of Cusco. Throughout the trail you will encounter open plains, high mountains, forests and coves. You will be able to see remnants of the ancient city of Cusco from the trail and from the surrounding area.
The second way to get to Machu Picchu is through the Huayna Picchu Trail. It will lead you through the ruins of the Inca citadel in the afternoon. Once you pass through this point, you will be traveling southwestward until you encounter the Puka Pukara. This hiking trail leads you to the third way of traveling to Machu Picchu; the Way of the Cross. It starts by traveling through the Wuyuan Cave.
The third way to get to Machu Picchu is by traveling along the Sea Route. The Sea Route is a route that travels along the west coast of South America, following the Pacific Ocean and ending at the Pacific Islands. Traveling this route is similar to traveling over the mountain range of the Incas; however, it differs from the route in the sense that the route does not follow the Inca Trail. Traveling this route will allow travelers to experience the beauty of machu picchu at its most beautiful state, which is when the tree crowns reach a height of about seven feet. Traveling this route is the best deals feasible for those traveling to Cusco.
