Inca Trail to Machupiccchu 2D/1N
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the stuff of legends. One of the most famous hiking trails in the world, this is the very same path trodden by the Inca Pilgrims as they made their way to the Sacred Citadel, hidden deep in the Andes. Spending the first day on a short section of the Inca Trail, we will visit the incredible site of Chachabamba before climbing to the magnificent ruins of Wiñay Wayna (Forever Young) for the most spectacular views across the Sacred Valley with the majestic Andes stretching far into the distance. Our trek brings us finally to Intipunku (the Sun Gate) where we will witness together this new Seventh Wonder of the World. After a comfortable nights rest in a quality hotel in Aguas Calientes, our 2nd day is spent with our guide providing a fascinating 2-3 hour guided tour of Machu Picchu, before returning on the train service through the Sacred Valley and a transfer back to your hotel.

Stop At: Chachabamba, 08680, Peru
We will pick you up from your Cusco hotel early in the morning (about 5 am) and then drive to the train station in Ollantaytambo where we will take the train to Kilometer (Km) 104, which takes about 3 hours. Km 104 is an unscheduled train stop, so you will probably feel a twinge of satisfaction that the train is stopping especially for you – and by knowing you are about to see things that no one else gets to see!
At Km 104 we will get off the train and pass the Inca Trail checkpoint, where we will see our first archaeological center called Chachabamba (2,170 m / 7,170 ft). These ruins were one of the last shelters that the Incas used before they reached Machupicchu. This site was also used as a religious and administrative center and features several historic buildings.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Winay Wayna, Machu Picchu Peru
which is named after an orchid and means “forever young” in Quechua. We will climb to the top of the ruins and enjoy lunch with an incredible view of Wiñay Wayna and the Sacred Valley. This large site sits on a mountainside and features experimental terraces that the Incas used to grow different crops and test which conditions were best. We will visit a sacred temple dedicated to the rainbow with seven windows. With any luck, we’ll see beautiful rainbows through those windows. This temple also features functioning water channels to delight you and cool your fingers.
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: Intipuncu, Machu Picchu Peru
Once we finish our tour here, we will continue our hike for about 1 ½ hours on a relatively flat section of the Classic Inca Trail with small ascents and descents along the way. At about 5 pm we will reach the Sun Gate (2,720 m / 8,920 ft) which is called Intipunku in Quechua. This is where we will have our first view of Machu Picchu. From there we will head down to the ruins to take the bus down to Aguas Calientes
