This 'Inca Trail to Machu Picchu' tour is fit for a king, a queen or a pampered adventurer! Join us on this 4-day guided trip and enjoy trekking through the Inca Trail, one of the most famous and incredible trekking routes in the world!

The Inca Trail is one of the most impressive examples of the approximately 40,000km of roads and trails built by the Incas some 500 years ago! These roads were built across deserts, highlands and jungles stretching from the south of Colombia throughout Peru, Bolivia, northern and central Chile and the northwestern part of Argentina!

This trail starts in the Andean region and travels through highlands, jungles and cloud forests, with tunnels and bridges in between. Undertaking this trek is an opportunity to go back in time and learn more about the history and civilization of the Incas. This trek comes to an end in Machu Picchu, the most representative and famous Inca monument. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
Camping
We will pick you up from Regocijo Plaza (less than 5 minutes from Cusco's hotel district) between 4 to 4:30 in the morning (time to be confirmed after the booking is done) and travel by bus to Piskacucho, popularly known as Kilometre 82, from where the trail starts. There will be a breakfast stop in Ollantaytambo. Please note that the breakfast is optional and not included in the tour price.

Upon arrival at Kilometre 82 at around 8:30 am, we will have some time to organize ourselves (using restrooms, applying sunscreen, insect repellents and more). Show your entrance tickets, passports and, if paying a student rate, a student card at the entrance to the trail located nearby.

Next, cross the Vilcanota River and take the route to the right. The first day is relatively easy but provides great views of the ruins of an Incan fortress (Huillca Raccay), the vast, incredible Llactapata (officially called Patallacta) and the Urubamba Mountains.

Our first campsite in Ayapata is located an hour and a half up the small village of Wayllabamba (3,000m) in the temperate, green valley that goes by the same name.

Total walking distance: 12km
Total time taken: 5 to 6 hours
Meals
  • Lunch & Dinner
Camping
Wake up at 5:30 am and have your breakfast. The first leg of your journey involves a steep ascent towards the highest pass of this trip, Abra de Warrmihuanusca, located 4200m above sea level, before descending to Pacaymayu (3,550m), where you will have your lunch.

On the way up to the pass, you will be able to see lots of animals and plants ubiquitous to this part of the world. After lunch begins your 2-hour-long steep climb to the Runkuraqay Pass located almost 4,000m above sea level. Arrive at your campsite by 5:00 pm.

Total walking distance: 16km
Total time taken: 8 to 9 hours

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Camping
Enjoy your breakfast at 6:00 am and start the day with a gentle climb to visit the archaeological site of Phuyupatamarca (meaning 'Town in the Clouds'). Reach the third-highest point of your journey today (3,680m above sea level). The views of the mountains, canyons and surrounding areas are spectacular!

After visiting the site, we continue walking through a cloud forest and the impressive Inca agricultural site of Intipata until we arrive at our third campsite in Winay Wayna (2,680m).

Total walking distance: 10km
Total time taken: less than 5 hours
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Leave the campsite at about 5:30 am on the final day after breakfast (breakfast will be served between 3:30 am to 4:00 am).You require an early start in order to reach 'Inti Punku' (Sun Gate) before sunrise. This is the place from where you will see the first dramatic view of Machu Picchu with the sun rising over it. After spending some time there, we will clear the final few hundred metres of the trail to reach a spot from where you can take the classic picture-postcard shot of this Inca citadel. Finally, we visit Machu Picchu itself!

A walking tour (2 hours) is given by your guide after which you can explore the mysterious city by yourself. You will meet your guide in Aguas Calientes (you can reach there by bus or on foot) and he will give you your tickets back to Cusco. A train takes you to Ollantaytambo from where you can catch the bus to Cusco.

If you need it, an extra night in Aguas Calientes can be arranged (optional). This option is very popular as it allows more time to explore Machu Picchu. You can also go to the thermal springs in the town - a real treat after finishing the trail!!!
