Inca Trail Trek – Ecuador

While the Ingapirka Inca Trail in Ecuador is not as famous as its southern cousin, the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, it was actually more important when it was constructed 1,000 years ago.

The Ecuadorian Inca Trail once connected the Incan empire’s northern capital Quito with the city at its heart, Cuzco in Peru.

It was part of what the Spanish called theCamino Real (Royal Road) and was used to move trade and messengers as well as large marching armies.
