Inka Jungle Trek to Machu Picchu 4Days/3Nights

Inka Jungle Trek to Machu Picchu 4 days : imbued with a magical silence, 120 km (74 mi) from Cusco on the hillside above the Urubamba River, one of the most remarkable archaeological sites in the world is established. Machu Picchu (2400m / 7872 ft) is probably the best known symbol of the Inca Empire. It is believed that the city was built by the Inca Pachacuti, starting in 1440, and was inhabited until the Spanish conquest of Peru in 1532. Archeological evidence (together with recent work on early colonial documents) shows that Machu Picchu, was not a conventional city, was a country retreat town for Inca nobility. The site has a large palace and dedicated to Inca deities around a courtyard, with other buildings for support staff temples. It is estimated that a maximum of only about 750 people resided in Machu Picchu at any one time, and probably only a small fraction of that number lived in the city during the rainy season and when none of the nobility were visiting.
