There are many great hiking trails to try in the world, but some of them have to be the best as they not only give you the chance to see extraordinary scenery, but also it challenges you and pulls the best out of your hiking abilities.

This trail gives you the chance to go through the jungle, to admire the ruins but also the amazing mountain scenery. And the cherry on top is the Machu Picchu, at the end of the trail.
If you want to try a 7 days trail, you can give it a go to the Kilimanjaro trail, in Tanzania, Africa.
