Departs Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from Cuzco.
4 Days/3 Nights(3 nights camping).
This four-day program allows the traveller time to explore and enjoy the amazing archaeological sites, landscapes and nature along the way. While some programs speed trekkers through the stunning high-altitude Inca trail, this program takes the time to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. You camp the three nights whilst enjoying great meals. The hikes average six to seven hours each day including time to explore sites we pass through and to take in the unparalleled scenery. On the fourth day we arrive at Machu Picchu and in the afternoon we return to Cuzco by train (Vistadome Train). This program is specially designed to offer an amazing trek experience and a deeper understanding of Inca culture.
NOTE: Overnight in Aguas Calientes on the last day is possible at an extra cost.
We leave the Cuzco hotel for Piscacucho, the start point of the trek, visiting the archaeological site of Llactapata. After lunch, we continue to Huayllabamba, where we will set up camp for the night.
We begin our trek by climbing to the 4,200-meter Warmiwañuscapass, passing through Llulluchapampa. At the pass, we have a spectacular view of the Andes before beginning the descent to camp in Pacaymayo.
We head off towards Runkuracay to visit its archaelogical remains, then continue hiking to the 3,900-meter mountain pass with the same name, where we begin our descent to the ruins of Sayacmarca. After lunch, our hike takes us Wiñay Wayna, which will be our camp for the last night.
We start hiking early towards Inti Punk, or Door of the Sun, where we have a spectacular panoramic view of the citadel of Machu Picchu. We descend to view its various sectors, then take the bus to the village of Aguas Calientes, where we take the train back to the city of Cuzco.
NOTE: It is possible to overnight in Aguas Calientes at an extra cost - for more information, please contact BFirst Travel.
