Take in the extensive views of Machu Picchu from Machu Picchu Cusco Trek, one of the city's most important archeological sites. Dedicated to Inti, the Incan sun god, the gateway once served as a part of the fortress that overlooked the roads leading to the city. Today, its vantage point offers some of the best views of all of Machu Picchu and the surrounding mountain peaks. Despite the inclining terrain, the relatively short 1.6 km (1 mi) hike over the stone-paved road from Machu Picchu to the gateway is not too difficult. The trail offers excellent views along its entire length, so even if you don't ascend the entire way, the hike remains worthwhile. Wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring your camera and plenty of water, and note that the path can be slippery when wet. Using our world travel planner, Machu Picchu attractions like Machu Picchu Cusco Trek can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • In the last 7 days from Japan, Inca Trek is impossible. Gate of the Sun in savored such ancient Inca Trail just a little, in ancient times was a nostalgic walk. Good views from the Machu Picchu ruins is the high point on a one-hour, stunning as Machu Picchu look back, Hiram Bingham road can be seen. Immediately after the morning Huayna so pretty I physically, but very good.
