It’s Wanderlust Wednesday, and today we’re going to take a journey along the Inca Trail in Peru, ending at the famous Machu Picchu.
Machu Picchu is an ancient Incan citadel which is located high in the Peruvian Andes. There are a couple ways to get to Machu Picchu: you can fly into Cusco and ride the train to Machu Picchu. You can also hike the Inca Trail.
Of course, taking the train is the easier, more popular option and there are different trains at different price points that you can take. Today, however, we’re focusing on the Inca Trail.
The Inca Trail is a very long, strenuous trail that will take you several days.The elevation is quite high as well, so hikers are encouraged to train for their trek beforehand and spend several days acclimatizing to the altitude before heading out. That being said, this trek is considered one of the most famous hikes in the world for a reason and you’ll have considerable bragging rights after you complete the trail.
However you end up getting to Machu Picchu, definitely go see it in your lifetime. I know I plan to. Perhaps I’ll see you there!
