You will be picked up from your hotel at 3:30 am and transferred (by bus) to the train station in Ollantaytambo to take the 7:00 am train. You will travel to 104 Km (2000 m.a.s.l./ 6560 ft) along the Urubamba River, where the hike (Camino Inca) will begin. Before heading to visit the Inca archaeological site, we will provide you with a packed lunch and drinks, as well as a briefing, which will be provided by our professional guide. Here you have the chance to take in the beautiful vista of the snow-capped mountains and when ready, we will start our hike towards the classic Inca trail where we will visit: Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu, the Urubamba River and other Inca sites.
It will take around 3 hours to hike to Wiñayhuayna (Quecua for “Forever Young”) 2600 m.a.s.l/8530 ft. To many, this place hosted the ancient houses of the ancient priests of Machu Picchu. Continuing on this route, we will arrive at Inti Punku (4 km) where we will have the first view of the historical sanctuary of Machu Picchu. From here the trail will start to descend towards Machu Picchu where we will have the opportunity to take some spectacular photos. We will take a bus to Aguas Calientes, where the guide will take us to the hotel, followed by dinner at a restaurant.
