Day 1Cusco - Wiñayhuayna - Aguas Calientes

Bright and early, you’ll enjoy a car journey to the emblematic town of Ollantaytambo, to take the short and famous scenic train ride to the Inca Trail starting point. Shortly after checking-in, you’ll be welcomed by a lush green forest and encounter the beautiful vestiges of Cachabamba, an important enclave said to be dedicated to water. 

The next part of the hike is done at the cloud forest, beautifully decorated by rare orchids and endemic trees, towards the impressive site of Wiñaywayna, which combines the flawless Inca architecture with stunning natural scenery. After taking touring around and learning some interesting facts, you’ll step on some more original Inca Stairs in order to get to the Sun Gate just in time to unwind and be astounded by the breathtaking views over Machu Picchu. By the end, you’ll take the bus ride to Aguas Calientes for your overnight stay.
