On September 8, 2013 we left for an adventure of a lifetime – to hike the 26 miles to Machu Picchu along the famous Inca Trail. Also known as Camino Inca it consists of three overlapping trails: 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 Warmiwanusqa ("dead woman's pass"). Located in the Andes mountain range, the trail passes through several types of Andean environments including cloud forest and alpine tundra. Settlements, tunnels and many Inca ruins are located along the trail before ending at the Sun Gate on Machu Picchu mountain. (LAURA'S VERSION)
