Itinerary

DAY 1: CUSCO – KM 104 – AGUAS CALIENTES

  • Firstly, our short Inca trail to Machu Picchu today takes us along the most impressive stretch of the Inca Trail. We visit beautiful Inca sites, see a variety of flora and fauna, and get to take in the fantastic panoramas of the Andes mountains.
  • Likewise, covering 10 km of the trail our journey begins in the Sacred Valley and works its way up along an original Inca Trail to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna before continuing on to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate (Inti Punku).
  • So, as we make our way to Machu Picchu we’ll pass through the lush and verdant cloud forest that covers the mountain and get to see a variety of plants, flowers, and birds along the way. We may also see some larger mammals such as Viscachas (rabbit-like Chinchillas) and Spectacled Bears (if we are very lucky).
  • After that, we arrive at the Sun Gate (Inti Punku), in the late afternoon and get our first views of Machu Picchu spread out on the mountain below.
  • Above all, the light at this time of day is great for photos, and with fewer tourists on the site, it’s a perfect time to take some pictures of the site.
  • Consequently, we’ll carry on along the trail a little way before taking a side trail that leads us to Aguas Calientes in the valley below where we’ll check in to our hotel.

Lodging: Golden Sunrise Machu Picchu Hotel *** or similar.

DAY 2: MACHU PICCHU

  • Waking up early we take the first bus back up to Machu Picchu to enter the site as it opens.
  • Then, we’ll have a 2 hour guided tour of the site during which you’ll learn about the Incas and visit all the most important areas of the citadel.
  • After that, you have free time to climb, if you have permits, to either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain.
  • Consequently, in the afternoon you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo from where you will carry on by bus back to Cusco.
