The Inca Trail to Machu
Picchu is actually three routes, which all meet up near
Intipunku, the 'Sun Gate' and entrance to Machu Picchu.
The three trails are known as the Mollepata, Classic and
One Day trails, with Mollepata being the longest of the
three. Passing through the Andes mountain range and
sections of the Amazon rainforest, the Trail passes
several well-preserved Inca ruins and settlements before
ending at the Sun Gate on Machu Picchu mountain. The two
longer routes require an ascent to beyond 4,200 m above sea level, which can
result in Acute Mountain sickness, also known as altitude sickness.
