Flowers of Machu Picchu Peru

MACHU PICCHU PERU : Throughout the Andes, from Ecuador to Chile, there exist still the vestiges of a network of roads that once linked every corner of the ancient Inca Empire. For the purposes of this book we will concentrate on the section of this system of highways known as the Inca Trail, which thousands of tourists use each year to reach Machu Picchu. The traditional route takes four days and begins at Km 82 or Km 88 of the railway line from Cusco to Machu Picchu, at about 2,500 meters above sea level. From there the trail climbs to its highest point at the Warmiwañusqa Pass at 4,200 meters. From the pass the Inca Trail descends, entering the cloud forest and finally reaching Machu Picchu at 2,470 meters. Along the entire length of the route, the walker can observe a variety of life forms (flowers, birds, insects, etc.) as the altitude varies .The vegetation before the Warmiwañusqa Pass, the driest section of the Inca Trail, is totally distinct from that found on the other side of the pass during the next two days of walking, where it is more humid. A shorter, one-day, version of the Inca Trail can be hiked from Km 107 (the ruins of Choquesuysuy) but this route does not take the hiker through high Andean areas.
