Machu Picchu Hike: Two Day Inca Trail Itinerary

Day 1 - Inca Trail

On the first day of the tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Cusco at 5 am and we'll set off by bus to Ollantaytambo Railway Station to catch the train to Kilometre 104, one of the most famous spots to start hiking the Inca Trail.

We'll begin our trek along the peaks of the Andes mountains. Throughout the hiking route you'll be completely enchanted by the stunning landscapes surrounding you. Reaching the ruins of Chachabamba, we'll start the climb up to Wiñay Wayna, one of the most important archaeological complexes on the Inca Trail.

Surrounded by unparalleled views of historic ruins and beautiful nature, we'll enjoy a well-deserved rest and a delicious picnic lunch. After eating we'll continue on to Inti Punku, also known as The Sun Gate, where you'll catch your first magical glimpse of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, perched majestically upon a mountain top and surrounded by dramatic Andean landscapes. We'll have the opportunity here to take unparalleled photos of Machu Picchu while enjoying a breathtaking sunset.

In the afternoon, we'll take the bus from Machu Picchu in Aguas Calientes, the town located at the base of Machu Picchu, where you'll have dinner and spend the night after a long day of adventure.

Difficulty: moderate.

Hike duration: 6 hours.

Total distance: 12 km (7.5 miles).

Day 2 - Machu Picchu

Our second day will see us up early for breakfast, before catching the bus up to Machu Picchu - a welcome rest for your legs after the Inca Trail hike! We'll then enjoy a two hour guided tour of the incredible archaeological complex, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. Discover the Inca citadel's main square, the houses, temples, mausoleums, the palace, the astronomical clock and much more, as your guide reveals key facts about their history and the myths surrounding them. After the tour, you'll have free time to explore the ancient site at your leisure, or to visit Huayna Picchu mountain.

We'll then catch the bus back to Aguas Calientes, where you'll have free time to eat and stroll around the town.
