Pilgrimage Inca Trail (Man-Made Path to Machupicchu)
Inca trail was constructed in pre-Columbian South America, the Inca Trail system, or Qhapaq 'an. was the most extensive. The network was based on two north-south Inca Trail roads. The eastern Inca Trail route ran high in Puna and mountain valleys from Quito, Ecuador to Mendoza, Argentina. The western Inca Trail route followed the coastal plain except in coastal deserts where it hugged the foothills. More than twenty Inca Trail routes ran over the western mountains, while others traversed the eastern cordillera in the montana and lowlands. Some of these Inca Trail roads reach heights of over 5,000 m ( 16,500 ft ) above sea level. The Inca trails connected the regions of the Inca empire from the northern provincial capital in Quito, Ecuador past the modern city of Santiago, Chile in the south. The Inca Trail road system linked together about 40,000 km of roadway and provided access to over three million km² of territory.the Inca Trail roads provided routes for rapid communication, personnel movement, and logistical support. The prime users were soldiers, porters and llama caravans, along with the nobility and individuals on official duty. Permission was required before others could walk along the roads, and tolls were charged at some bridges.Althought the Inca roads varied greatly in scale, construction and appearance, for the most part they varied between about one and four meters in width.
Because the Incas did not make use of the wheel for transportation, and did not have horses until the arrival of the Spanish in Peru in the 16th century, the Inca trails were used almost exclusively by people walking, sometimes accompanied by pack animals, usually the llama.
Relay messengers, or chasqui, stationed at intervals of 6 to 9 km , carried both messages and objects such as fresh marine fish for the rulers in the sierra. Messages consisted of knotted-cord records known as quipu along with a spoken message. Chaskis could cover an estimated 240 km on The Inca Trail per day.
There were approximately 2,000 inns, or tambos, placed at even intervals along the Inca Trails. The inns provided food, shelter and military supplies to the tens of thousands who traveled the roads. There were corrals for llamas and stored provisions such as corn, lima beans, dried potatoes, and llama jerky. Along the Inca Trail roads, local villagers would plant fruit trees that were watered by irrigation ditches. This enabled chasqui runners and other travelers to be refreshed while on their journeys. Inca rope bridges provided access across valleys.
The most important Inca trail road was the Camino Real, as it is known in Spanish, with a length of 5,200 km ( 3,230 mi ). It began in Quito, Ecuador, passed through Cusco, and ended in what is now Tucumán, Argentina. The Inca Trail or Camino Real traversed the mountain ranges of the Andes, with peak altitudes of more than 5,000 m . Inca Trail or Camino de la Costa , the coastal Inca Trail, with a length of 4,000 km ( 2,420 mi ), ran parallel to the sea and was linked with the Inca Trail or Camino Real by many smaller routes.
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is actually three routes, which all meet up near Inti-Pata, the 'Sun Gate' and entrance to Machu Picchu. The three Inca Trails are known as the Mollepata, Classic Inca Trail and One Day Inca Trail, with Mollepata being the longest of the three. Located in the Andes mountain range, the Inca Trail passes through several types of Andean environments including cloud forest and alpine tundra. Settlements, tunnels, and many Incan ruins are located along the Inca Trail before ending the terminus at the Sun Gate on Machu Picchu mountain. The two longer routes require an ascent to beyond 12,000 ft ( 3,660 m ) above sea level, which can result in altitude sickness.
Concern about overuse leading to erosion has led the Peruvian government to place a limit on the number of people who may hike this Inca Trail per season, and to sharply limit the companies that can provide guides. As a result, advance booking is mandatory. A maximum of 500 people, including guides and porters, are permitted to begin the Inca Trail every day. As a result, the high season books out very quickly.
