The journey along the Inca Trail comes to a close as you ascend 2,000 stone-cut steps and approach the Sun Gate (Inti Punku). On the other side of this magnificent viewpoint lie the glories of Machu Picchu.
NOTE: Limited trekking permits—reserve your trip early . The Peruvian Government issues a limited number of Inca Trail permits per day. Due to the popularity of this spectacular route, permits sell out 6+ months in advance.
