Back cover copy

Lost to the jungle for centuries, Machu Picchu was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham 100 years ago. It's now probably the most famous sight in South America and justifiably so. Perched high above the river on a knife-edge ridge, the ruins are truly spectacular. The best way to reach them is on foot, following parts of the original paved Inca Trail over passes of 4200m (13,500ft). Fully revised new edition This re-walked and revised 5th edition includes hiking options from two days to three weeks with 40 detailed hiking maps showing walking times, camping places and all points of interest: ● The Classic Inca Trail and shorter trails● Salkantay Trek ● Santa Teresa Trek ● Choquequirao Trek ● Vilcabamba Trail● Plus two challenging treks linking the Vilcabamba and Choquequirao routes to the Santa Teresa Trek"
