Cusco is Peru’s main tourist destination and one of the most important destinations in the Americas. Known by the Incas as the “Home of the Gods,” Cusco became the capital of one of the largest pre-Columbian empires: the Tawantinsuyo. Its name in Quechua means “Navel of the World”.

The Inca Trail is one of the most famous treks in the world; at one time it extended throughout all of the Incan Empire and today still exists in many parts of the Andes. The short Inca Trail is 2 days and 1 night. We recommend this shorter trail for people who do not have much time or do not feel physically capable of the longer trek. You will be walking on the real Inca path once used by the noble Incas to pilgrimage to Machu Picchu sanctuary. While trekking, you will enjoy Andean flora and fauna as well as mountain views.
