The Inca Trail, located in Peru, is renowned for its historical significance and beauty, but a full trek takes several days.

This relatively short hike is the perfect way to get a taste of the popular site on your next vacation.

The short Inca trail will take you to the iconic Machu Picchu. During this two-day out-and-back trek, hikers will be exposed to lush vegetation, unique wildlife and sweeping views of the Sacred Valley and surrounding mountainscapes. The trailhead begins at kilometer 104 in Peru near Ollantaytambo by crossing over a bridge onto an adjacent mountain. It is considered one of the shortest hikes up to Machu Picchu but no less awe-inspiring or inspiring. You'll finish with incredible views of the famous ancient city from above!

Whether you want a real expedition experience or just enough time to get a glimpse of one of South America's most stunning edifices, this short hike offers travelers an opportunity to explore part of Peru's history while experiencing some of its extraordinary landscapes.
