Machu Picchu is without
doubt the most recognizable symbol of Inca Civilization. "The Inca Trail",
as it is known now, was the Royal Highway that led pilgrims and officials of
the Empire to the Sacred City of the Incas.
What makes the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu so
special is the stunning combination of Inca ruins, incredible views, the
Andes scenery, exotic vegetation and extraordinary ecological variety. Over
250 species of orchid have been counted in the Machu Picchu Historic
Sanctuary, as well as numerous birds such as hummingbirds, waterfowl and the
majestic Andean Condor.
