 INCA TRAIL  TO MACHU PICCHU 4DAYS /3 NIGHTS

ITINERARY-

DAY 1: Cusco-KM 82 – Huayllabamba
We pick you up from your hotel in the morning at 6:00 and drive to kilometer 82 of the Inca trail. At the check point, you must show your passport here (copies are not accepted). The first part of the Inca trail is considered a gentle training section (about two hours). From the trail, you can see the ruins of Llactapata, then 20 minutes later is where we will stop for lunch. The hike ascends to semi-tropical valley for two hours until we arrive at the first camp site (Huayllabamba, 3000 MASL). (L,D)

DAY 2: Huayllabamba – Pacaymayu

After the breakfast, the Inca trail leads us to the highest point, passing through different climate and ecological zones as we ascend the Warmiwañuusca mountain pass (4200 MASL). The hike will rise up to the pass and in the first section we will see an abundance of native vegetation and as we continue along the trail, you will see less as we move up to the higher elevation. After approximately 5 hours, we reach the peak of the mountain and stop to rest and take some majestic photos of the landscape. We begin our decent down to the campsite, located an hour downhill at the Pacaymayu valley (3600 MASL). (B,L,D)

DAY 3: Pacaymayu – Wiñay wuayna
The trail climbs up towards the second pass, and about halfway up there is a small round roofless stone building, which is the remains of an Inca archaeological site known as Runcuracay. The trail continues to rise towards the second pass of Runcuracay, which is at around 3900m. Once we reach the second pass, the landscape opens onto spectacular views of the snowcapped peaks of the Pumasillo mountain range. We descend ½ hour to the ruins of Sayacmarca - a group of houses, plazas and water channels, perched precariously on a rocky spur overlooking the Aobamba valley. After lunch, we continue to the archaeological site of Phuyupatamarca (a town at Cloud-level). We will take some time to explore the wondrous maze of Inca stone towers, fountains and stairways that spill down the mountainside here. Then, we begin a long descent through ever-changing layers of cloud forest. An Inca stairway, partly cut from living granite, leads us finally to our camp by the ruins of Wiñay wuayna (forever young) the last camp site at 2500 MASL (B,L,D)

DAY 4: Wiñay Wuayna - Machu Picchu - Cusco
We start to hike early in the morning (5:00) for the last section of the magical Inca Trail. From Wiñay wuayna to Intipunku it is an easy hike (2 hrs), followed by a broad level path, which winds through shrubs and comfortably lit woodland. In less than an hour, we arrive at Intipunku (the Gateway of the Sun) and through the rectangular doorway you can see the Machu Picchu. From the Sun gate, a pathway leads downhill, for about an hour, directly to the entrance of Machu Picchu. The tour takes two hours and usually offers free time afterwards. Once that is done, we take the 18:20 train and arrive at Ollantaytambo around 20:10 and hop onto a 1 ½ hour bus to Cusco. (L)
