The Inca Trail to Machupicchu (Machu Picchu) is rated among the best trekking trips in the world because of the exquisite natural beauty and archaeological importance of the many sites leading up to Machu Picchu. We encounter valleys that contain wildlife endemic to high deserts or the tropics, between stretches of Puna and cloud forest. We encounter mysterious archaeological sites half covered by jungle overgrowth, which look like you are discovering them for the first time. Finally we arrive at the lost city of the Incas, Machupicchu. Experienced guides will conduct your journey and ensure that your trip is pleasant and safe.


Day 1 Cusco - Wiñayhuayna- Aguas Calientes (Km. 104)

We will pick up our passengers from their hotels at 5:40 AM, after which we will start our journey by train from Cusco. We will start our hike from km 104 towards Wiñayhuayna (an archaeological site).
In the afternoon we will take the bus to Aguas Calientes and spend the night in a hotel there.

Day 2 Aguas Calientes - Machupicchu - Cusco

Early morning after breakfast the guide will pick you up and then take the bus to Machu Picchu (2000msnm) after 25 minutes by bus we arrived at Machu Picchu, and we will be able to see the sunrise, take pictures and then we take a tour (2-3 hours) to the important places around the sanctuary of Machu Picchu. After you have about 4 hours to explore, take pictures or go to the Mountain Waynapicchu 2634m.snm, then we must take a bus to Aguas Calientes for lunch and then take the train to Cusco in the afternoon and then transportation to your hotel.

(We recommend this trip, because you get to Machu Picchu early in the morning and have more time to visit Machu Picchu and see the inti Tayta).
