One of the world’s most popular archaeological sites, and the destination for many travellers each year, Peru’s famous Machu Picchu is a bucket-list item for adventurers around the globe. But a holiday in Machu Picchu and the surrounding areas is quite different to other vacation options; unless you’re catching the train to the summit, you’ll have to trek via either the Inca Trail or the Quarry Trek – neither of which is a walk in the park. Quite the opposite, in fact. You’ll spend days on end trekking through challenging terrain, and reaching altitude that will both figuratively and literally take your breath away. But this ancient site that remained hidden from the outside world until it’s discovery in the twentieth century is well-worth the physical challenge you’ll go through to get there.
