Chances are if you’ve landed on the Valencia Travel Cusco homepage, you’re liking looking for information about Machu Picchu, or by the end of your session, you’ll be asking all about it!
Machu Picchu is to Peru what the pyramids are to Egypt, the Acropolis is to Greece, and Times Square is to New York; that is to say, the treasured trek to the near-mythical Machu Picchu is synonymous with the country of Peru. It is an icon among travel icons. In fact, it would be fair to say that out of every landmark across Latin America, Machu Picchu is the perfectly-cut diamond amongst the continent’s many stunning and shiny jewels.
If you want to experience the Inca Trail in the most traditional way, then Valencia Travel Cusco’s Classic Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu is just what you’ve been looking for. As one of the most famous treks in the world, the four-day, three-night adventure will take you through dense jungle, over gushing rivers, and provide you with spectacular scenery that has become the stuff of legend on the backpacker trail. The trail will expose you to awesome vistas of the surrounding mountains as you stand at the clifftops of rocky pathways that zig-zag up and down, with variations in temperature matching the changes in altitude.
What this means, of course, is that you’ll need to pack for both warm and very cold conditions, depending on the time of year you go. During the Classic Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu tour, you’ll have the chance to encounter all sorts of wildlife, from spectacled bears to Peru’s national bird (known as cock-of-the-rock), all the while dining on native cuisine with a crew of talented local cooks who will join you along the journey; and if you’re fascinated by weird, wacky and exotic plants, the trail promises not to let you down.
After all, this is Machu Picchu we’re talking about, and its reputation as a magical destination is not without merit.
This tour is a must on your next visit to Peru if you plan on visiting one of the world’s most iconic destinations that is reserved for only the most adventurous and culturally-curious of the lot of us. By undertaking this challenge, you’ll join an exclusive club of vagabonds who are immediately united by the shared experience—and feeling—this trek places upon them.
Once you conquer the mountain, it never leaves you, making it one of the most memorable and impressionable travel experiences the world has to offer.
