There are places in this world that become legend—far-off locales whose splendor, history and air of mystery ensnares the imagination.

Yet Guide Raul Ccolque has crossed the threshold of the Sun Gate and set foot in the ancient city over 300 times! For Raul there is no question—the best way to fully experience Machu Picchu is to hike the Inca Trail.

26 miles and four days long, the Inca Trail hike is a life-changing journey across the Andean Mountains that winds through lush jungles, past embanked ruins and high up into the heaven-piercing Inca citadel. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to walk among the remains of this fascinating culture, now is the perfect time to find out.
