Inca Trail to Machu Picchu 4D/3N

Views : Pacaymayu, Sayacmarka, Machu Picchu,Cusco

DESCRIPTION:

The Inca Empire, called "Tahuantinsuyo" stretched from the present-day Ecuador to Chile today, then its capital was Cusco, which means Navel of the World. The Incas were, according to the Spaniards of the sixteenth century, the best organized society in the world. This empire of a huge but perfectly organized infrastructure. The media were also well organized, thanks to the access roads and messengers (Chasquis) who roamed the territory, as well as to transmit information or orders to deliver goods.

Anecdotally, we will mention for example that the Inca in Cusco (in the middle of the Andes) could eat fresh fish every day, 3 hours after you have fished in the sea; while the Spaniards took them two weeks to go riding on the coast to the imperial capital, Cusco. The "Descendant of the Sun" deserved at least that.

The existence of Machu Picchu is still subject to controversy. It must have been a place of residence of the Inca, a place of refuge or fortress and why not the "Lost City - El Dorado". But the truth is that its access from the Capital was also well implemented, it is the famous Inca Trail.
