Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu

Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu is only offered by few travel companies because it is so off of the beaten path. It is less traveled than theoriginal  Inca trail and is considered one the “World’s Best Hikes” by National Geographic. Inca ruins and quantity villages are attractive aspects of this trek and the beautiful mountain views of the Cordillera Vilcabamba and Urubamba mountain ranges provide the opportunity to encounter dramatic landscapes.



















This trip combines high Andes hiking, amazing history.  Wonderful cultural elements, and rare solitude on arguably the best route to Machu Picchu!

Visit  Peru begins in one of the ancient Inca capital  Cusco or (Qosqo) in Inca language. We set off this adventure trip on a picturesque trail around Huayanay Peak 4,650 m / 15,300 ft. Passing through the forest to alpine. Meadows and crossing the Ancascocha Pass 4625 m to reach part of the Inca Trail. On this memorable 4-day section of trail, we are likely to see a few other trekkers.

A good level of fitness is recommendable due to this adventure.

But the extra effort pays off. The Ancascocha trek offers mind-blowing vistas and takes in a variety of ecosystems. From cloud forests and alpine peaks to glacial lakes and tropical jungle. On Ancascocha trek, the trail goes through very remote Andean communities, where locals try to keep living in happiness moving their llamas and alpacas as they’ve been doing so far.

This trail forms part of the network of classic Inca Trail which is connecting to  Machu Picchu from the other towns located in the highlands, therefore, we’ll have the chance to witness ancient Incan ruins along the path to Machu Picchu, Inca remains that are still covered by shrubs waiting for becoming uncovered by National culture institute of Peru (INC).

If you are even more an intrepid one and have a longer time to hike. You have a chance to continue hiking the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. As the trail gets to the same path so this would be even more an unforgettable adventure for you.
