Classic Inka Trail 4 Days / 3 Night

Itinerary

The Inca Trail is a well-known route in Peru, which combines an impressive mix of Inca ruins, mountain landscapes, exuberant flora and rich subtropical jungle. More than 250 species of orchids have been counted in the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, as well as birds, numerous as hummingbirds, waterfowl and the majestic Andean condor.

Located in the Andes mountain range, the road passes through several types of environments including the Andes, cloud forest and alpine tundra. Archaeological settlements, tunnels and many ruins that are found along the track before reaching the end of the Sun gate in Machu Picchu.

Day 1: Cusco – Piskacucho – Wayllabamba

Early in the morning we leave Cusco in direction of Ollantaytambo where we make a short stop for a last minute purchases, plus an opportunity for breakfast if you wish. We will continue to Pisacucho (also known as Kilometre 82) where the trail starts. The beginning stage follows the course of the Urubamba River, located in the valley with the same name, and then gradually ascends to the Piscacucho Valley in the direction of Huayllabamba, the town where we will camp for the night.

  • Minimum elevation: 2670 m / 8761 ft
  • Campsite elevation: 2954 m / 9694 ft
  • Distance: 12.00 km / 7.47 mi.

Day 2: Wayllabamba – Warmiwañusca – Paqaymayu

The day begins with an ascent to the first and highest pass on this Inca Trail tour: Warmiwañusca (4200 m). This is the spot where you will have some of the best views of the Vilcabamba and Vilcanota Ranges, the white peaks, and incredible splendor that surrounds them. We continue the Machu Picchu hike on the trail to the Pacaymayo campsite.

Today, we will climb to the second pass at Runcuracay (3900 m), somewhat lower than the first. The descent from there lasts about 2 hours, and our destination is the Sayacmarca archeological complex. After a visit, we retake the road, soon finding ourselves in the typical climate of a semi tropical cloud forest as we trek towards Phuyupatamarca, the departure point for our last campsite at Wiñaywayna, where stand the remains of the second most important Incan archeological site on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

After a brief hike, we will arrive at the long awaited outpost and be rewarded with a well deserved rest, immersing ourselves in the energy that pulsates through this magical spot. Afterwards, we begin our guided tour that lasts a few hours, and then we will descend to the town of Aguas Calientes to board the train back to the city of Cusco.
