The Inca Trail in Machu Picchu is probably one of the most famous trails in South America. There is nothing quite like watching the lost city of the Incas gradually reveals itself.
The Inca Trail consists of three overlapping trails: the Classic, the Mollepata, and the One Day trail. This video shows the journey of a young couple hiking the 4 day Inca Trail. The trail is closed each year in February to allow for conservation work to take place.
Kate Miyburgh and Alex Dillion took the 4 day Inca trail in October 2016 with a tour operator. They wanted to explore the nature and see the mountains.
This short documentary is the result of their journey. Focusing on interviews with fellow hikers, as well as different types of nature, landscape, mountains, and terrain, the documentary shows the Inca Trail and the Machu Picchu in a whole different light.
Each day of the four day trail is different, posing different challenges and showing different nature. Enjoy the view.
