1 night - Short Inca Trail with Hotel (No Camping)

This trip allows a taste of the Inca Trail without days of hiking and camping. We begin the hike from the train stop at Kilometer 104 and follow the trail for six hours to the spectacular view of Machu Picchu from Inti Punku, the Gate of the Sun. From here we descend into the world famous 'Lost City'. After a restful night in a hotel, we return to Machu Picchu at dawn to see the ruins in perfect morning light on a guided tour. In the afternoon, we return to Cusco by train.

Day 1: KM. 104/CHACHABAMBA/WINAY WAYNA/MACHU PICCHU

Depart from Cuzco or Ollanta stations on the early train, following the Urubamba river to km 104 of the railroad, where you alight and cross a footbridge to begin your hike at the Inca site of Cachabamba. After a brief visit to this lovely ruin with its water channels and fountains, you will start the four hour ascend that will take you past spectacular overlooks above the great valley, then below a lovely waterfall near the delightful site of Winay Wayna (Forever Young). You'll ascend through this largest and most exquisite of the Inca Trail sites, passing its chain of ritual baths and elegantly curved terracing, and then joining the main Inca Trail. Follow it across a steep mountainside and up narrow stairways through lush, humid cloud forest. Suddenly you will cross the stone threshold of Intipunku (sun gate) and encounte the magical city of Machu Picchu. You will walk the last half-hour or so down the royal flagstone walkway, passing by shrines and buildings overlooking Machu Picchu from the trail. Next you will take a bus to the small town of Aguas Calientes where you will overnight in a local hotel. Lunch and Dinner.

Day 2: MACHU PICCHU/CUSCO

After breakfast, you will take the bus towards MachuPicchu to enjoy an early visit to the fabled ruins, spending the day in both guided and individual exploration. After a full-on experience of this glorious monument to the Inca achievement, you will return to Aguas Calientes by bus and board the return train to Cuzco. Breakfast at your hotel and Lunch included.

Not Included:

Recommendations:

- Although the trek is rated as moderate, we strongly suggest spending at least two nights in Cuzco or Sacred Valley before the start of the trek to totally adjust to the altitude.

- Do some exercise before you go.

- Passengers interested in climbing HuaynaPicchu,we strongly suggest to book your entrance ticket in advance.

- Altitude at the Inca Trail: Minimum 2430m/Maximum 4200m.

- Keep hydrated. Drink Plenty of water that also helps to acclimatize to the altitude.

- The paving on the trail is irregular. Please watch your step.

- Inca Trail luggage/bag allowance: maximum 15.43 pounds/7 kilograms per person, which you have to store in the provided duffle bag.

Weather:

The Andean weather can be unpredictable, despite the sharp divide between dry and wet seasons. The dry season runs from May to October or November (the best time for this amazing trek); the rainy season goes from December through April. Nevertheless, in the forested fringes of the Amazon basin where Machu Picchu lies, showers are not uncommon at any time of the year. Therefore rain pants and jacket are essential gear that should always be in your daypack.

On boarding, an ID (identification) and the train ticket will be required. If the passengers will overnight in the Machu Picchu area, they must take the original passport or ID, along with the Andean Immigration Card, so that the hotel may exonerate the sales tax of the overnight. The Andean Immigration Card is handed by the plane crew upon arrival in Peru. Only carry on or backpacks will be allowed with the following characteristics: Not more than 11 pounds, not more than 62 inches (157 centimeters) (height+length+width). Backpacks or Carry On will go with the passenger, and by no means should block the access gates or the corridors.

This package is recommended from April to October, not recommended from November to March due to rainy seasons.
