The vast Inca road system is in incredible feat of engineering. I have hiked some of the Inca trail leading to Machu Picchu and around Cuzco. As the Inca Road spread out in 4 directions from Cuzco, there are many checkpoints/rest areas around this region. Yet this is only the tip of the iceberg of Inca roads that span from Equador to Chile. When I visited Peru I knew little about the Inca road system, but upon researching Qhapac Nan I would really like to make some long hikes on this incredible road.
