What makes inca trail trek so special is, its richness, Biodiversity, the stone made trail, the archaeological sites along the inca trail, unforgettable views, snowy mountains, cloud forests and the natural beauty of the inca trail to machu picchu. The trail has exotic vegetation including more than 300 varieties of Orchids. the inca trail  trek presents extraordinary ecological variety, and machu picchu itself cannot be fully understood without the experience of the inca trail trek. Its principle sites are ceremonial in and multifunctional character, in ascending hierarchical order as you near the city.  The inca trail trek is essentially a work of spiritual art, like a gothic cathedral and walking the inca trail to machu picchu is an act of devotion to the incas memory. The four days inca trail trek covers about twenty-eight miles, starting at an elevation of 8,400 feet above sea level and ending at 7,800 feet. in the inca trail trek you must cross two high mountain passes with a maximum elevation of 13,700 feet. the trail conditions are generally good on this ancient inca trail to machu picchu.

Always a small group is better to keep walking together and enjoy the nature of the inca trail, there is a possibility to make friend and share experiences, interacting more closely with each other. Whereas, in larger groups from (10 – 16) people it trend to split into factions. Moreover, in larger groups tends to be a sizeable difference“ often over one hour in a section of the trail” between the fastest and slowest member. in the inca trail it makes more difficult for the guides, cooks and porters to make their effective labors. In small groups, people are more likely to arrive at roughly the agencies often provide inferior food for the porters. Small groups require less space in campsites and this enables the guide to select better locations. In small groups the guide, cook and porters have a more intimate relationship with the tourists and are better able to meet individual needs and attend to environmental issues such as waste disposal, contamination, etc. as the group will be together more of the time.
