Itinerary

Day 1:Cusco - Ollantaytambo - Km 104 - Puente Ruinas

The first day of the trek start long before the sun came up. Early in the morning between at 05:00 to 05:30. Our guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel and take you all the way to Ollantaytambo where would catch the train heading towards Aguas Calientes. it is about a 2 hour drive.

When you arrive in Ollantaytambo at between to 06:30 to 7:00 am, you can have a breakfast or drink a coffe. and boarded the train. iwhere you find the comfortable seats. Not only that, but there are also additional windows on the ceiling so that you could enjoy the looming mountains along the way.

You will be on the train for about an hour and a half before you reached our stop: Kilometre 104. Our guide have the special Inca Trail permits in order for you hikers to be let enter to the Inca Trail. and walked down to the shores of the Urubamba River where you are greeted with a wooden bridge leading into the thick jungle and a few clouds hanging in the morning air.
As soon as we checked in to the trail, you will come across your first archaeological site of the day: Chachabamba. This site sits at 2,170 meters and it was one of the last shelters that the Incas used before reaching Machu Picchu. It also operated as a religious and administrative centre.

After visiting Chachabamba you will begin the slow ascent on the Inca Stone steps. The trail is steep for the first 2 hours, but it eventually level out (for a few brief stretches, anyway). During that time you will stop at 2 different shelters where you will cool off in the shade and enjoyed some snacks.

By lunchtime we reached a waterfall and unpacked our box lunches which will provide your guide. From there you continued on to Wiñay Wayna which sits at 2,650 meters. This is the highlight of the Inca Trail!

Wiñay Wayna is one of the most beautiful archeological sitesI What makes it special is that there is hardly a soul there, plus the terraces are built in a really cool amphitheatre formation that allows you to see the whole area. These terraces were built to grow different crops and you’ll also find a temple that was dedicated to the rainbow.

You also get to see Intipata in the distance (this is another archaeological site that sits at 2,750 meters),

You will enjoy the section of the trail from the waterfall to Wiñay Wayna because the landscape change quite drastically. As you will trek closer to the water, the temperatures became cooler, the vegetation became greener, and at times it fill like you are walking through a moss-covered forest. It is a welcome change after the hot temperature and dryer landscape you have experienced near the start of the Inca Trail trek.

After visiting Wiñay Wayna you will get back on the trail. Your next landmark on the trail is Intipunku, also known as the Sun Gate, and then after a long day of walking,

Here your group pause for a few moment to relish the moment: you will have your first glimpse of Machu Picchu! and you can take your first Machu Picchu selfies. It is a moment none of you will forget.

After getting your first glimpse of Machu Picchu, you will continue along the same trail, you will encounter some llamas and then once you reached the gate to Machu Picchu, you will descend to Puente Ruinas, where your cook is waiting with a delicious dinner and where you will spend a night in the tent, Machu Picchu would have to wait until the following day.

Day 2:Puente Ruins - Machu Picchu - Cusco

After an early morning breakfast, we continue hiking the Inca Trail for about 2 hours up to the mysterious city of Machu Picchu that we enter for the early morning best photos opportunities. Then our Tour Guide shows us around the Incan city and explains us about its history and purposes. After the guided tour, we are given the opportunity to climb up for about 45 minutes to Huayna Picchu or to Machu Picchu Mountain (peaks above Machu Picchu serving to take some panoramic pictures of the Inka city). Then, we are given time off to spend and explore Machu Picchu on our own.

The 2 day Inca Trail ends up with a train ride to Ollantaytambo (alternatively to Poroy), from where we are taken by van back to Cusco.
