Inca trail

The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or Tahuantinsuyo road network to Machu Picchu, consists of three overlapping paths: Mollepata , classic, and one day. Mollepata is the longest of the three routes with the highest mountain pass and intersects with the classic route before crossing Warmiwañusqa ( "dead woman"). Located in the Andes, the road passes through several types of environments including Andean cloud forests and alpine tundra. Settlements, tunnels, and many Incan ruins are found along the track before the end of the terminal in the Sun Gate in the mountains of Machu Picchu. The two longer routes require an ascent to beyond 4,200 meters (13,800 feet) above sea level, which can lead to altitude sickness.
