SHORT INCA TRAIL HIKE TO MACHU PICCHU
DAY 1: CUSCO – WAÑAY HUAYNA – MACHU PICCHU
The Short Inca Trail Hike To Machu Picchu begins with a pick up from your hotel in Cusco or Ollantaytambo. We will leave Cusco at 5:00 AM to travel in our private vehicle to the train station of Ollantaytambo. Our train journey takes us on a very picturesque route for one hour until we reach kilometer 104–the start of the trail for us.
From here, we have a walk of approximately 3 hours up to the Inca site of Wiñay Huayna (‘Forever Young’) (8792 ft.). You have joined the path in time to see the most impressive site on the whole Inca Trail!!
The Short Inca Trail Hike continue on to ‘Inti Punku’ (‘Sun gate’) (8792 ft.) from where you will have your first dramatic, panoramic view of Machu Picchu (8036 ft.). We will walk down the last part of the trail towards the ancient city itself. On this day, we walk through Machu Picchu and finish the day going down to Aguas Calientes and rest.
DAY 2: MACHU PICCHU PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR
We will enjoy our breakfast and continue with the Short Inca Trail Hike to Machu Picchu. We will take the 6 am bus up to Machu Picchu. Once there, you will take a guided tour (approximately 2 hours). If you have the passes and the energy you can also climb the Huayna Picchu Mountain (8890 ft.).You will meet your guide in Aguas Calientes (it can be reached by bus or on foot) for lunch and to be given your train tickets back to Cusco. The train usually leaves at 3:55 pm, and we will arrive back in Cusco at about 8:45 pm.
If desired, an extra night in Aguas Calientes can be arranged. This option is very popular as it allows more time to explore Machu Picchu. You can also go to the thermal springs in the town – a real treat after finishing the Short Inca Trail Hike.
