The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (also known as Camino Inca or Camino Inka) is a hiking trail in Peru that terminates at the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. It is 26 miles long, but we are asking you to do an extra 0.2 miles of sightseeing to make it up to a marathon !


The inca trail is a dream destination for many hikers (it is certainly on my bucket list), but it can be an expensive trip and sitting at altitudes of 13,828 feet at its highest, it can be a challenging trek. So, this is a slightly easier and cheaper option.


How does it work ?
