Inca Trail Hike: Four Days to Machu Picchu

Day 1

On the first day, we will pick you up you from your hotel in Cusco at 5 am. From there, we will head to point km 82 on the route by minibus, where we will start our 4-day hiking adventure to Machu Picchu around 11 am.

During this day we will start our route up the mountain until reaching the villages of Miskay and Llactapate, where we will enjoy our first lunch. Here, you'll discover the archaeological complex of Llactapata and the community of Huyllabamba.

The tour continues to the camp of Lluncachimpa and Huayllabamba, at almost 11,000 feet in altitude. Here we will have dinner and spend the night.

Day 2

On this day we will rise early to watch the sunrise over the Andes, one of the best sights on the itinerary.

After eating breakfast, we'll walk through the valley of Lluncachimpa and continue climbing until we reach Llulluchapampa. The track will take us to Warmi Wañusqa, 13,780 ft high up. From this point, the highest on the tour, you will have spectacular views of the snowy peaks and the surrounding archaeological remains.

After lunch, we'll continue the journey through the valley of Pacaymayu and over the pass of Runkurakay until we reach Sayacmarca, the largest archaeological complex so far on the trail. Without a doubt, this is a beautiful place.

We will eat dinner and spend the night in the camp of Chaquicocham about 12,000 feet in altitude.

Day 3

After breakfast, we'll set off on the third day of the hike. This is the easiest part of the route, as this is the area of the tropical forests known as Yunga. You're sure to be captivated by the impressive landscapes and magnificent ruins here.

In the afternoon we will visit the archaeological sites of Runkarakay, Phuyupatamarca and Wiñay Huayna, the largest and most surprising on the route and also home to the camp where we'll have dinner and spend the last night.

Day 4

On the last day we will get up very early, at around 4:30 am. Under the light of the stars, and with a torch in our hand, we will continue on the route to Inti Punku, or the Sun Gate, where we'll have breakfast while admiring a magical sunrise over Machu Picchu. This is the most memorable moment on the whole trip.

After dawn, we will continue the descent to Machu Picchu, where we will do a guided tour of the historic Inca citadel. After the visit, you will have your own free time to tour the area and take photographs.

After this unforgettable experience, we will take a bus to Aguas Calientes, the departure point of the PeruRail Expedition train to Cusco.

Once in Cusco, we will take you back to your hotel.
