SHORT INCA TRAIL

Short Inca Trail Trek to Machu Picchu

Excellent to take the postcard photo of Machu Picchu, as it is difficult to have this photo with the new circuits that exist.

Short Inca Trail, excellent route to reach Machu Picchu through the cloud forest and very rich in flora and fauna, with Inca archaeological sites, as well as CHACHABAMBA - WIÑAYWAYNA built by the Incas more than 500 years ago.
