Travel Details of the Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

Day 1°: Cusco – Wayllabamba.

Our Inca Trail adventure starts at the city of Cusco; therefore our guide will pick you up from your hotel there.
Shortly afterward, we drive towards the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
After approximately 2 hours we will reach the town of Ollantaytambo. From here, we follow a dirt road to the small village of Piskacuchu.
Our bus journey ends at Piskacucho. At this point, we will get off the bus and get ready for the trek.

Shorty after submitting passports control, we get across a bridge and start to walk along the left bank of the Urubamba River.
Following the trail along a flat terrain, we reach the little community of Miskay, where we make a short break to try some local chicha (maize beer)
Then we ascend a steep path that will lead us to a high plateau, from where all hikers will be rewarded with a spectacular view of an Inca construction called Patallacta.
Afterward, we keep ascending, along a gorgeous valley created long ago by the copious Kusichaca River.

We will gradually climb for about two hours until we reach a beautiful spot, where our cook and porters await for us for lunch.
Later on, we will walk uphill (not very difficult) for about 2 hours till we reach our first campsite in the village of Wayllabamba.

Overnight at the Wayllabamba Campsite.

Day 2°:  Wayllabamba – Pacaymayo.

Shortly after breakfast, we start to ascend along a narrow valley full of vegetation and beautiful streams.
On this section, visitors will experience a steep climb, full of steps, so we advise you to take it easy.

After passing the little camp zone of Yunkachimpa, we will reach Lluluchapampa Village, a spot frequently used by some other hikers to camp.
At this point, we begin to climb towards the highest pass, the Abra Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman’s Pass 4200 m. – 13.780 Ft.)
It will take about 2 hours to get to the top, so our recommendation is just to do it slowly, without pushing yourself too much.

Once we get to the top, you will be rewarded with magical views all around. Here we meet with the group for photos.
Later on, we will descend a winding path across a narrow valley, until one point where we will take a break for lunch.

After lunch, we continue our hike towards the Pacaymayo Valley (3.350 m. – 10.991), where we will camp.
This is also an official campsite, so here you will find good showers (very cold though) and proper flash toilettes.

Overnight at the Pacaymayo Campsite.

Day 3°: Pacaymayo – Wiñaywayna.

For many visitors, this day is the longest but also the most impressive due to the number of archaeological sites that hikers can see along the way.
After breakfast, we follow a steep path that will lead to the second pass, the Abra Runkurakay (3.970 m. – 13.024 Ft.)

Halfway up, we will stop to visit the archaeological complex of Runkurakay.
It is very likely that this Inca building served as a watchtower.
After going over the pass, we descend to Yanacocha Lagoon and stumble upon the ruins of Sayacmarca (3.600 m. 11.811 Ft.)
This is an interesting Inca building in which you can find semicircular constructions, water fountains, as well as irrigation channels.
After visiting Sayacmarca, we enter the cloud-forest walking up and down.

Eventually, we face the last pass, the Abra of Phuyupatamarca (3.700 m. – 12.139 Ft.)
From now on, the rest of the trail is mostly downhill.
Going down we will stumble upon a beautiful Inca site constructed on a marvelous natural setting.

The end of the day leads to the Wiñaywayna ruins, second only to Machu Picchu in beauty.
Some meters further down is located the camping zone of Wiñaywayna, where we spend the night.

Overnight at the Winaywayna campsite.

Day 4°: Wiñaywayna – Sanctuary of Machu Picchu – Train back to Cusco.

04:00 h. Soon after breakfast, we continue our hike towards the Sun Gate, a fantastic lookout point considered the main entrance to Machu Picchu.
Upon our arrival at the sanctuary of Machu Picchu, our guide will show you the most remarkable sights.
Among the buildings, we will visit the Sun Temple, the Solar Clock, the Condor temple and others.
Likewise, we also visit the Inti Watana altar, the most mysterious place at the heart of Machu Picchu.

After exploring the citadel, you will have free time to walk around Machu Picchu on your own.
Eventually, we will take the bus down to the village of Aguas Calientes.
Free time for lunch. In Aguas Calientes, you have plenty of restaurants options.
Finally, we head to the station to take the train back to Cusco.
Upon your arrival in Cusco, our driver picks you up at the station and then drives you to your hotel.

End of our service.
