Short Inca Trail Machu picchu 2 days & 1 night
Our tour departs from Cusco and takes us along the most impressive stretch of the Inca Trail. We will visit amazing Inca sites while taking in fantastic views of the Andes mountains. Our 10 km journey begins in the Sacred Valley and goes all the way up to the Inca site of Winay Wayna before continuing on to Machu Picchu via the Inti Punku, also known as Portal of the Sun.
As we make our way to Machu Picchu we will pass through the lush and verdant cloud forest that covers the mountain and see a variety of plants, flowers and birds along the way. We may also see some larger mammals such as Viscachas (rabbit-like Chinchillas) and Spectacled Bears (very rare).
After trekking all day we will arrive at Inti Punku in the late afternoon and get our first views of Machu Picchu, spread across the mountain below. The light at this time of day is great for photos and there are very few visitors on the site.
Overnight at standard hotel in Aguas Calientes.
Machu Picchu- Cusco
After a very early breakfast we will ride the very first bus up to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu to enjoy the sunrise. Our guide will lead a very interesting tour full of legends, facts and historical information about this South American landmark. This tour will also allow you time on your own to explore the citadel, and time permitting you can climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain (you must have a permit). In the afternoon you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo, from where you will return by bus to Cusco.
