DESCRIPTION

A network of well-made roads connect the inca cities to their imperial capital, Cusco. The Machu Picchu, Cusco road was part of this system. The Inca Trail crosses dense forests and deep canyons across many altiitudes and enviroments. The surroundings are impressive and the balance achieved between nature and inca architecture is striking to watch.

The Vilcabamba mountain range presents peaks higher than 6,000 meters, such as the Salkantay and Huamantay among others. The blend of mountains, jungle, and valleys create the feeling of being part of a fantasy world where the spectacular dawn and sunset are shrouded in mystery and legend.

The Vilcabamba mountain range its located within the boundaries of the Machu Picchu historical sanctuary, which is a protected reserve, set up by the peruvian government in 1981 in order to preserve and protect the natural beauty and Cultural Patrimony of our country which are of great scientific and historic value.
