Itinerary

DAY 1: Cusco – km104 – Wayllabamba – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes

We start very early! (5.00am) Leaving the historic Inca capital, the famous city of Cusco, we´ll reach the Ollantaytambo train station, where we´ll embark on the adventure and enjoy the scenic landscape to km104. Here, our special permission will be processed so we can leave the comforts of the train to begin our trek. After registering us, our expert guide will lead the way to the Chachabamba sector at 2400m/7875ft.

From here we´ll begin the ascent by the route that was developed by the Incas, being an approximate of 4km which will take us about 4 hours to the famous Wiñay Wayna (Forever Young) at 2650m/7875ft. Here you can observe very beautiful landscapes and agricultural terraces that are still maintained to this day.
After a short explanation and a delicious lunch provided by our agency in one of the best restaurants in Cusco, we´ll resume our adventure on the Inca Trail to the famous Inti Punku (Puerta del sol, or Gate of the Sun) at 2720m/8924ft. One can observe the majestic hidden city among the Machu Picchu clouds and take photos that seem straight from a postcard. Following this, we´ll continue our wonderful descent - our destination today will be the village of Aguas Calientes (2040m/6693ft). We’ll have a rest and shower at either the Inca Tower or another 3-star hotel.

DAY 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

After having enjoyed a comforting night and delicious breakfast, we´ll depart the hotel and move on to the bus station at 6.00am. Our transport will travel 30 minutes to the Machu Picchu entrance at 2430m/7973ft, which we´ll reach after passing the checkpoint.

We´ll embark on our excursion inside the city of Machu Picchu and stay for about 3 hours. At Machu Picchu, you can observe the famous Guardian House, take photos of the Post Office, the Temple of the Sun, the House of the Inca, the Sacred Plaza, the Solar Clock, the Huayranas (rest houses) and the Temple of the Condor.

Following this you can get a Machu Picchu seal on your entrance ticket or your passport. We´ll then take the bus to Aguas Calientes village and have lunch in a restaurant selected by our agency. We´ll then have some free time until leaving time, then take the train to Ollantaytambo station where our private transport to Cusco awaits us for the return to our hotel in Cusco.
