“The tour itself was excellent. Definitely more difficult hiking than we expected, but a great itinerary (with the exception of the last days mentioned above). The huts were very nice, the food was good and plentiful, and our guides (Dhane/Emily from AMC) were fantastic. The only complaint was the lack of understanding regarding the days at the lodge and access to our luggage, and the lack of clarity as to when the hike was actually over and we could return home.”

“Fantastic experience and a superb trip leader, but tents are rather small for two people who don't know each other. Thankfully, this didn't happen in our case, and I'd like to think that enough tents are brought along, so that strangers don't have t be so confined. Happy to share hotel rooms. I'd recommend this trip, definitely.”
You're free to arrive at any time today and transfer to the hotel. Please note, check in time is approximately 15.00hrs. This charming South American city is the undisputed gateway to the Inca Trail and an excellent introduction to the colonial and pre-Columbian sites of the past. This is your time to acclimatise to the 3,400 metre altitude so if you want to stretch your hiking legs, the nearby ruins of Sacsayhuaman and Qenco present an ideal opportunity to get in some practice.Cusco is formed around a beautiful main square and is small enough to explore the main sites in a day. It's also listed as one of the most attractive cities in South America, with much of the centre comprising of colonial-era buildings with Inca foundations. It's also full of interesting museums, churches and pre-Columbian sites. A welcome note will be left in the hotel reception explaining whether you meet the guide and group on the evening of day one, or the following morning. Please check this upon arrival to the hotel.

Today has been left free for you to explore the city in more detail. You may wish to take an optional visit to the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the incredible ruins of Sacsayhuaman in the Sacred Valley. We recommend visiting the Hatunrumiyoc, a 12 Angled Stone near the centre of Cusco which helps explain why the city has remained so brilliantly intact, surviving many earthquakes over the centuries.

You leave Cusco early this morning and drive to the start of the Inca Trail at Piscacucho, commonly known as Km 82. The trail runs alongside the Vilcanota River beneath the impressive snow-capped Nevado Veronica, passing through cactus gardens and fields of corn towards the enormous Inca ruins of Llactapata, where you'll camp near the hamlet of Huayllabamba. Today is mostly flat except for the last few hours, the perfect introduction to the Inca Trail and good practice for the following day.

This is the longest and most strenuous day of your hike where you follow the Inca steps uphill most of the day. A long climb takes you through an area of cloud forest to the meadows of Llulluchapampa, then over the Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman's) Pass, the highest point on the trail at 4,215 metres. After a steep descent, camp in the scenic valley of the Pacamayo river (3,600 metres). It's peaceful and beautiful, with time to reflect on the ingenuity and spirit of the Incas.

It's time to tackle a more sedate gradient as you walk to the Runquracay Pass via the ruins of Runquracay. At almost 4,000 metres, it's a beautiful pathway past the Sayajmarca ruins, into a rainforest and through an Inca tunnel. This evening's sunset, from your overnight camp above the site of Phuyupatamarca, should be unforgettable and early risers will be treated to an equally impressive sunrise.

Today's the day that you've dreamed about and as you descend the world-famous Inca stone stairway past the ruins of Winay Wayna and Inti Punku (The Gate of the Sun) you'll get your first glimpse of the fabled ruined citadel of Machu Picchu. Arrive at The Sun Gate to enjoy unobstructed views of the magnificent ruins, before returning for a dawn tour tomorrow. This is indeed a sight to savour. If you can't wait until tomorrow morning's dawn tour then additional entry tickets can be purchased on arrival for approx. US$50 - your tour leader will assist with this. A nice way to spend your evening is to relax in the warm waters of Aguas Calientes.
