Introduction:

During the time of the Incas the population built a highly advanced network of nearly 40,000 thousand kilometers of trails to connect the distant corners of their vast empire. Cusco was the heart of this great empire. Almost all of the principal trails in the mountains surrounding Cusco were built or improved by the Incas. This beautiful 43km section of mountain trail connects the important Inca archaeological sites of Runcuracay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatamarca, Wiñay Wayna and Machu Picchu has become popular with hikers in the last 30 years and has become known as the "Inca Trail to Machu Picchu".
