The network of Inca trails (Qhapaq Ñan) is considered one of the most impressive hand-made engineering works in existence, declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It was key in converting a small family caste into the largest empire in America by uniting territories of the current nations of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina.
The Inca Trail combines different natural landscapes and ecological floors - from the high Andean mountains, it passes through deep valleys and ends in tropical rainy and cloud forests - through which the Incas walked, in addition to archaeological remains of superfluous magnitude that are at the level of a world wonder, the goal: Machu Picchu.
