Inca Cantera trek is the perfect alternative trek for those who like to explore much less crowded routes off the beaten track. This ancient Inca trail was built by the Incas 500 years ago and is still used by the locals today.
I would talk with a expert first.
The Inca Quarry Trek takes hikers to beautiful, secluded waterfalls, traditional Andean communities, and the largest quarry in the Inca Empire. You will learn about life in these isolated villages, the Inca culture and enjoy the different landscapes, from the Sacred Valley to the high Andean mountains, and spend an unforgettable day exploring Machu Picchu, one of the most incredible places on the planet.
