Inca Quarry Trail To Machu Picchu 4D/3N


Inca Quarry Trail offers a distinctive alternative to the classic Inca Trail, taking you on a journey through ancient wonders and breathtaking landscapes. This trek is also known as Inca Quarry Trek, Inca Quarry Travel, and Inca Quarry Adventure, providing a unique off-the-beaten-path experience en route to Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu.

The highlight:

  • Off-the-Beaten-Path: This trek diverges from the usual routes, offering a less-traveled path to Machu Picchu. It’s a chance to explore the ancient Inca Quarry Road and discover the beauty of Ollantaytambo.
  • Scenic Treks: Traverse beautiful mountains and encounter captivating sites like the Perolniyoc Incan ruins and stunning waterfalls. The trail provides a unique blend of history and natural beauty.
  • Sun Gate and Veronica Mountain: A highlight of the journey is reaching the Sun Gate, a sacred site offering spectacular views. The trek also includes glimpses of the majestic Veronica Mountain, enhancing the overall experience.
  • Peaceful Machu Picchu Arrival: After the trek, a train journey takes you to Machu Picchu town for an overnight stay. The tranquility of this approach sets the stage for an immersive experience at Machu Picchu.
  • Machu Picchu Exploration: The final day is dedicated to exploring Machu Picchu, capturing classic photos of this iconic wonder. Guided tours provide insights into the historical significance of the site.
In summary, the Inca Quarry Trail is an alternative and less-crowded route, allowing you to savor the beauty of the Andean landscapes, uncover ancient ruins, and culminate in the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu experience.
