The epic hike to the sacred city of Machu Picchu is one of the most coveted adventures in Latin America. People plan their vacations—or even years of their lives—around taking this magnificent walk through the Andes. Thus, it should come as no surprise that it is also one of the most crowded hikes in the world.

The most famous route to the top, the famed four-day Inca Trail, has become so popular that the Peruvian government finally put limits on the number of visitors who can make the journey. Just 500 people—including guides and porters, so perhaps 250 tourists—can begin the trail each day.
