Every avid adventurer will likely have the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu on their bucket list. The ancient Inca citadel can be found high in Peru’s Andes Mountains, and while it is accessible via public transport, many choose to hike their way to the iconic site. 

The Inca Trail is around 26 miles long and it can take up to five days to complete but the views along the way are well worth it if you can handle the altitude.
