Know More about this tour

We will leave Cusco at 5:30am by a tourist bus heading for the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Before we reach our starting point of walk, km 82, we will make a short break in Ollantaytambo for having the option to get breakfast. The official beginning of the Inca Trail is called km 82. Here we will meet the rest of the group and take care of the registration facilities. We will start the legendary Inca Trail. The first day the trail is easy to walk and a good warm up for the following days. In Miskay well have lunch at a small river bank while getting some information about the archeological complex of Llactapata. After that, we will continue our hike to Wayllabamba and ascend to Yuncachimpa, the camping site we will spend the night in.

This day everybody should walk in his/her own pace; of course you will meet during the small breaks or see each other while beating the stairs. Early in the morning the trail first leads through the Valley of Llulluchapampa. The first 3km are step enjoy the humid woodland and the water sounds. From Llulluchapampa follow the way for 2-3 hours until you reach the highest point of this section, the Warmihuausca Pass. This climb is known as the most difficult part of the Inca Trail. After a short break at the summit, you continue your hike down with a long and steep descent to the river Pacaymayo towards the Runkurakay pass until you reach our camping site called Chaquicocha.

We will pass two small lakes at the top of the second pass. Its a gentle climb through beautiful cloud forest and a small Inca tunnel before the third pass offers a grand view over the Rio Urubamba Valley. The nearest settlement is named Phuyupatamarca. A well preserved site with long chain Inca baths where one can enjoy impressive ancient engineering. We pass another Inca Tunnel before visiting the ruins of Wiaywayna. The Inca stairs change into a zigzag trail until you reach a red-roofed white building, our last camping site.

Before sunrise, about 4:30am, after our breakfast, we will head equipped with our flashlights to the Inti Punku (Sun Gate) to get the first glimpse of Machu Picchu and watch the sunrise over Machu Picchu. The last triumphal descent will take you almost one hour before we visit the citadel of Machu Picchu around 8am. You can enjoy its spiritual charm during a guided tour (about two hours). After this tour a bus takes you down to Aguas Calientes. We will leave Aguas Calientes in the afternoon.
