Itinerary

Day 1Cusco - Yuncachimpa

Welcome to Cusco! After an early pick-up at your hotel, we will drive you through the Sacred Valley of the Incas stopping at the town of Ollantaytambo to have a wholesome breakfast. Later on, we will arrive at Km 82, the starting point of the trek. The first-day walk is relatively easy. Along the way, you will get to see Patallacta, an ancient city in ruins now, where our guide will explain more about its enigmatic history. Following the trail path, you will be taken to Wayllabamba to hike up Yuncachimpa, where we’ll camp for the evening and be surprised by the beautiful snow-capped Veronica Mountain.

• Difficulty: Moderate   • Hiking time: 6-7 hours   • Distance covered: 11 km/6.8 mi
• Min. altitude: Urubamba River (2,200 m./4,850 ft.)   • Max. altitude: Yuncachimpa ((3,300 m./10,826 ft.)

Day 2Yuncachimpa - Chaquicocha

An early start awaits you, this day you’ll walk at your own pace and meet each other to have short breaks and contemplate the lush scenery as we get ready to ascend the stone steps. It is fair to say that the first 3km are steep, surrounded by humid forests. We will go through Llulluchapampa while ascending for 2 to 3 hours until you reach the highest point Warmihuañusca pass, a unique name which means “The dead woman pass” due to its silhouette. Definitely, the most challenging part of the trail, after that descent is imminent where our destiny is Chaquicocha, where our camping lays for us to have a well-deserved rest from your adventurous hike.

• Min. altitude: Runkurakay Pass (3,050 m./10,007 ft.)   • Max. altitude: Warmihuañusca Pass (4,200 m./13,780 ft.)

Day 3Chaquicocha - Wiñayhuayna

This day, you’ll set out towards Wiñaywayna enjoying the spectacular sights that change gradually into a lush forest. As we approach the next pass, we’ll visit a couple of superb lakes that merit getting your camera out. Then, it will be a gentle climb through the cloud forest and a little Inca tunnel, before taking on the third pass with exceptional views of the Urubamba Valley. Near to we’ll experience Phuyupatamarca (The Town above the Clouds), a well-preserved Incan site with various baths, that demonstrate the resourcefulness of Inca designing. Next up, we will pass another Inca tunnel followed by the beautiful vestiges of Wiñaywayna, meaning ‘Forever Young’. Finally and after a crisscross path of Inca steps, we’ll arrive at our last campsite where you’ll be able to take a hot shower (optional) and grab some drinks.

• Difficulty: Easy-Moderate   • Hiking time: 5-6 hours   • Distance covered: 10 km/6 mi
• Min. altitude: Wiñaywayna (2650 m./8694 ft.)   • Max. altitude: Second Pass (3950 m./12960ft.)

Day 4Wiñayhuayna to Machu Picchu

The final day is coming so rise early to complete the last bit stretch of the Inca Trail. After walking for about an hour you will reach the Sun Gate and catch the first glimpse of the majestic Machu Picchu (2400m/7874ft) at approximately 8:00 am. A walk of 45 min will take you right into the higher area of Machu Picchu. Enjoy a 2-hour tour to learn more about the secrecy of Machu Picchu, and then have extra time to explore the citadel on your own. You can add more adventure to this trip by climbing to Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountains (at additional cost and booked in advance). By the afternoon you will descend by bus to the town of Aguas Calientes, where you can spend some restful time before taking the return train, stopping at Ollantaytambo for a pickup, and drive back to your hotel in Cusco.
