Inca Trail Hike 3 Days

Inca Trail Hike 3 Days along the path, which goes towards Machu Picchu, requires a very good physical condition. The idea of hiking for 3 days is to avoid crowds and thus provide great physical activity to your body. The journey is 23 miles – 45 kilometers, and the designated camps are Llulluchapampa (before the big summit – Warmiwañusca 4200 mt.), Phuyupatamarca (thirst summit located into the jungle) and from this place we go to Machupicchu via sun gate (Inti Punko). If there is not much time in Peru and you want to visit the original Inca Trail this is the best for you.
