7 Incredible Hikes (Slideshow)

  • 4 of 8

 

3. Inca Trail, Peru

The Inca Trail is one of the most famous hikes in the world — and for good reason! At the end of your 4 or so day hike, you’ll be rewarded with a visit to Macchu Picchu. Be sure to book your trip months in advance, because, in order to maintain this important trail, the government has strict limitations on the number of visitors allowed each day. You’ll pass small villages, other Inca ruins, a lake, and, of course, breathtaking views of the Andes before you reach your final destination.

California can't help it if it's full of great trails to hike. It's a big state and very diverse, geographically speaking. Lots of beauty to see and never enough time to see it all. related read for click http://physictourism.com/category/adventure/hiking/
