Way of Inca

Camino del Inca
Way of Inca

The Way of Inca is unquestionably the trekking more popular of Sudamérica, by what does not result the trekking but suitable if you want to enjoy of a solitary experience. The Park only allows the access to 500 people to the day, that have to request with months of antelación, if you do not want to arrive to the doors and that do not leave you happen.

The result is that your go in a day to the Park, which on no account can change, and in 4 or 5 maximum days have to go back to go out, following a marked route by the government and some norms.

Each day after the camp, the porteadores and the guide went through a place of control of the government, on the one hand to control the tourists that went and by the another to control the weight by porteador and the number of porteadores by tourist.

It is necessary to say that like us went the ultimas as we did not find us a lot of people, is one of the advantages.

From the moment in that you incorporate you to the trekking, go you displacing without wanting it with the 500 people that this same day have gone in, and go camping in the same places, since the camps are foreseen in advance, so much to sleep, as to have lunch. They have a system that could call a bit militaristic, all of the same form. In principle this system is to preserve the Park and the ruins of the tourists.

It is necessary to know that by each tourist go in a guide, 2 porteadores, a cook and an assistant. That is to say, that of these 500 people that go in in the park, only are tourists less than the half, the rest are hard-working.

In spite of all the problems of so much control it is necessary to say that the landscape is sobrecogedor, half selva, very populated of vegetation, a lot of humidity, and also are it the fascinantes ruins Incas that find until arriving to the Machu Picchu, the famous stray city of the Incas. The route passes, between many throw off balance that it is necessary to save, of ruin in ruin, and very often following an intricate system of stairs and stairs that go visiting the forests, going up and going down mountains.

The shortest itinerary on the way Inca is one of 4 days that begins in Chicla, in the famous km. 82 of the road of the train, in Ollantaytambo.

The turn realises with a bus from Machu Picchu to Hot Waters, and afterwards in train until Cuzco.

It does not be necessary to forget that Cuzco is a fantastically lovely city, to 3400m. Of altitude, and place of start of the Way of Inca. It is a wonderful city, so much by his location, as by his monuments in the own city, in the surroundings, and in the fantastic wall Inca that still it conserves in the city. Also we recommend you do a route by the Ruins Incas of the Holy Valley, first by the beauty of the own valley that seems painted as in a postcard, and second by the ruins, that are so much or more spectacular that the own of the Way Inca, as the ones of Ollataytambo, Pisaq, Moray, Chinchero, between others.
