We doubted booking with River Explorers, but they full filled all our expectations and more, we will come back for more. Thanks River Explorers!
There are approximately 40 km, or 25 miles, to cover during the hike. This may seem a little impossible, but trust us, thousands of people have done this with no problems at all! The trail starts at 8,700 feet and ends at 7,860 feet above sea level. There are ancient Inca paving stones on the pathways, so the trail conditions are always excellent. You will feel as if you are being transported back in time, as you walk along the same path the Incas did all those years ago.
