    What to Expect

    Day 1: Cusco - Km 104 - Chachabamba - Machu Picchu - Aguas Celientes

    Stop At: Inca Trail, Machu Picchu Peru
    We start the tour from your hotel around 4am and drive to Ollantaytambo. From here it’s a 1 hour 30 minute train ride along the Urubamba river from Ollantaytambo (in the highlands) to km 104 at Chachabamba (in the cloud forest). Where we start our hike to Machu Picchu. Our first stop is a beautiful Inca ruin called Chachabamba. After exploring the site we will hike for 4 hours until we arrive at Wiñay Huayna (the place that never gets old). A packed lunch and refreshments will be provided. Later we will continue our hike to the Sun Gate to catch your first glimpse of the Lost City of the Incas - a truly unforgettable sight. From the Sun Gate it’s a one hour downhill walk to the city. We will arrive into Macchu Picchu in the afternoon and will therefore have the unique opportunity of experiencing the city almost empty. We will then take the bus down to Aguas Calientes where we will have dinner and spend the night in a hotel.

On a clear day you can watch the spectacular sun rise over Machu Picchu. This is truly an unforgettable sight. Your guide will take you on a 2 to 3 hour comprehensive tour of the city before leaving you in Machu Picchu to explore on your own or climb either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain (tickets must be booked as far in advance as possible).
