Hard to believe a total of 22000 miles of Trail over four or five countries. The trail was actually started about 500 years before the Inca time period by the Wari. The Inca continued to improve and build new trails. Amazing Construction! It was a lot more than the area around machu picchu.

Hiked it in 3 days. Day 2 is the hardest with the climb to Dead Womans Pass at 4200m. But the feeling of achievement you get when you reach the top, and again when you reach the sun gate is indescribable.

I have hiked all over the world and this was one of my favorites! I enjoyed the combination of the physical challenge and the historical aspect. Each day of the hike the scenery was breaktaking.

It's was tough but amazing. First day was an easy hike around 4 hrs overall. 2d and 3rd days are a completely different stories. A bit more challenging and demending. The altitude makes a big difference here. Views were amazing throughout the hike. Camp sites were nice too. As we just finished our trek on the last day available (it's... More

It's hard to put the views into words. The engineering that went into building and maintaining these roads and architectural makes my head spin. The altitude WILL kick your behind. Tread slowly and clean up after yourself. There's nothing more disrespectful than trashing another country's beautiful sites. This trail is worth every hard breath and slow step.

Hiked the 4 day 3 night classic Inca Trail hike and loved every minute of it! We used Alpaca Expeditions as our guides and they were great. This was really the highlight of our trip and highly recommend doing this if you are up to it.

I would call myself a senior in fairly good condition...the Inca Trail was much more strenuous than expected and there was always a time issue...I think it would've been more comfortable for many if it was stretched out a bit longer,,,and maybe categorize your groups....by age, physical fitness etc., the banos were awful... other than that truly amazing, views, scenery...
