This version of the Inca Trail is a private service - not in a group - with more comfort and quality for a stay as you wish. You will do this hike in a short version with a private guide who will make you discover all the secrets and legends Incas.
The first day is a hike on the Inca trail, with Inca archaeological sites and the discovery of Peruvian flora and fauna. The second day will be dedicated to the sanctuary of Machu Picchu.
We will leave Cusco very early in the morning with a private vehicle. We will follow the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the course of the Vilcanota river until Ollantaytambo where we will take the train until Kilometer 104, departure of our trek. It will begin with a short walk to the archaeological site of Chachabamba (2270 meters), where agricultural products were gathered before their transportation to Machu Picchu. We will continue our walk, with beautiful views of the Urubamba River. We can observe different species of orchids. After one last turn, we will see the site of Wañayhuayna below (2700 meters), fabulous urban complex perched on a rocky outcrop, overlooking the Urubamba Valley and dominated by a vast set of terraces. After being restored, we will continue our walk and we will arrive at the Porte du Soleil in the afternoon. The view of Machu Picchu from this point, under the beautiful afternoon sun is fantastic. We will descend to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu (2400 meters), which we will only cross today. We will continue to the village of Aguas Calientes, at the foot of the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, where we will settle in a nice hotel.
Option: Arrival in the city of Aguas Calientes, you can enjoy the hot water sources at 10 soles the entrance.
We will leave our hotel very early after breakfast and will take the first bus, at 5:30, which goes up to Machu Picchu (half an hour climb), to enjoy an unforgettable view with the rising sun on the site. Our guide will make us visit and explain to us how was the life in the citadel, as well as the cults and ceremonies that the Incas performed in the many temples and sacred places present on the site. After 2 hours of guided tour, you can enjoy the magic of Machu Picchu Sanctuary, at your own pace. It is possible to climb to the Huaynapicchu mountain (to be reserved in advance!), Or the Machu Picchu mountain (to book also in advance). After enjoying this day at Machu Picchu, you will return to Aguas Calientes to take the train to Ollantaytambo. A private bus will be waiting for you to take you to your hotel in Cusco.
(*) If there is no more room for the direct route Aguas Calientes - Cusco (Poroy), we offer the train from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo, then a private transport to your hotel in Cusco. This option does not apply to the Hiram Bingham luxury train.
