How to Hike Peru’s Machu Picchu in One Day

How to Hike Peru’s Machu Picchu in One Day – Inca Trail, It is the most famous trek in South America – perhaps all over the world – and an experience that should change everything and you will remember it forever. The Inca Trail hike through Sacred Valley of Machu Picchu is a rather arduous hike but also very impressive. It is 4 cold days, the pain and exhaustion dissipate as the fog rises to reveal the mountains and Inca ruins on terraces of the mystical ancient city.

  1. The best time to visit the Inca Trail is from May to September. Of course, it is the high season (especially from June to August), but it is also the dry season. And trust us, it is best to visit during the dry season! Please note that the Inca Trail is closed in February. Although we know of many adventurers who like to travel in rainy season and it is a different experience.
