Footprint Cusco & the Inca Trail
A fascinating city in its own right, Cusco enjoys the privilege of having many of the Peru's top attractions virtually on its doorstep. A short bus trip away are beautiful valleys and Andean towns, while one of the most spectacular sites in all the Americas, Machu Picchu, is easily accessible by train. However, the best way to approach Machu Picchu is along the Inca Trail. This classic four-day trek along well-preserved Inca paved roads passes through Inca tunnels, over breathtaking passes, and into beautiful stretches of cloud forest. This thoroughly updated and beautifully redesigned guide to Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and the southern jungle, including the Manu Biosphere Reserve covers all the Inca sites, including Choquequirao, with the latest information on the ins and outs of the Inca Trail, and a guide to many lesser-known trekking routes. It also offers special features on adventure travel, including kayaking and rafting, as well as current information on where to stay, play, party, and dine, targeting all budgets and tastes.
