What to Expect
Day 1: We will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco at 4:30 AM! The ride to the trailhead at Kilometer 82 is beautiful! After driving 2 hours we will reach to Ollantaytambo. This town is an excellent spot to get breakfast and buy any last minute supplies prior to arriving to km 82. We will then get back in the van to travel the final 45 minutes to reach to Km 82. The hike begins with 2 ½ hours of relatively flat terrain until we reach to the ruin of Wilkaraqay. From this site we will have great views of the Llactapata (9,020 ft) inca site. Back on the trail we will hike for 2 hours until we reach Hatunchaca (8,525 ft) where we will have lunch. This will be your first meal from our chef.

After lunch we will hike for 2 ½ hours until we reach our camp at Ayapata (10,829 ft). This camp is a little further along the Inca trail than the traditional night one camp site of Wayllabamba. 

Day 2: After breakfast we will begin our hike to the famous Dead Woman’s Pass! For the first two hours we will be in the cloud forest. We will pass through various biozones including the low sierra and the high puna. After this two hour hike we reach Lluchapampa (12,460 ft). This is a small camp and it is the absolute last location on the trail to buy supplies. 

The trail leading us to Dead Woman’s Pass (13,825 ft) lasts 2 hours and takes you through beautiful mountains and the grasslands of the high Andes. We will then descend to the Pacaymayu camp for lunch.  After lunch we will ascend 45 minutes to the Inca site of Runcuraccay. After a descent of 90 minutes we will arrive at the Inca site of Sayacmarca (12,000 ft). At this location we will have the chance to see one of the most amazing sunsets of the Aobamba valley! From here it is 25 minutes to our campsite for the night at Chaquicocha (11,800 ft). 

Day 3: After another fantastic breakfast we will hike for two hours until we reach Phuyupatamarca (12,073 ft). From this location we will have astonishing views of Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu Mountain, and Huayna Picchu mountain. 

Now it is time to head into the rain forest! We will walk downhill for 2 ½ hours until we reach our camp. During this stretch of the trail we will visit Inti Pata. Many people feel that the most beautiful pictures of the entire Inca trail can be taken from this location! After Inti Pata it is a further 30 minutes to our campsite at Wiñay Wayna (8,792 ft). 

Day 4: We will rise very early to complete the final stretch of our trek, which brings us to the Sun Gate, From Inti Punku it is a further 40 minute downhill hike to Machu Picchu. At Machu Picchu, the tour will last two hours. When you are finished exploring the extraordinary city of Machu Picchu you will travel to Aguas Calientes by bus. You will then take the train from Aguas Calientes to Poroy/Ollantaytambo where our private van will be waiting to transport you back to your hotel in Cusco.
