Published on July 24th, 2012 | by Admin0
Among the surprising amount of orchids and flora, the new section was discovered by Peruvian archaeologists and will reportedly be available to visit in two years, after a research project is conducted.
The new section of the trail is about 1.7 meters (about 5’ 7”) wide, 4.3 kilometers (about 2.7 miles) in length, and was built using a retaining wall, rainwater drainage channels, and a paved platform. Archaeologists say about 70 percent of the trail is in very good condition with the rest having been damaged by vegetation and landslides.
