For those on the first Herping Tour, September 29 - October 6, here is a great opportunity to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. One of the people on the herp trip has decided to hike the Inca Trail before heading home and three of her friends are flying down to join her. She invites other Herping Tour participants to also join the hike. This is a Private hike for just our people. The more people who sign up, the lower the cost per person. Inca Trail permits go quickly, so we need to hear back from people within a week.

    The Inca trail was an important communication and transportation link within the Inca empire, connecting Cusco to Machu Picchu. To follow the Inca's footsteps on the royal highway to Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience. Few other hikes in the world can offer the variety of breathtaking scenery: from high sierra to tropical jungle. No other will take you through so many well preserved archeological sites.

    Machu Picchu harbors within its boundaries a diverse flora and fauna that includes:
    Mammals such as bobcat, puma and the endangered spectacled bear.
    Interesting reptiles and amphibians in the Cloud forest.
    More than 700 species of butterflies.
    Around 415 species of birds including colorful hummingbirds, ducks, eagles, parrots, quetzals, toucans, manakins, tanagers, Cock-of-the-Rock, etc.
    More than 190 species of orchids.
