Inca trail to Machu Picchu now considered a national reserve, This magnificent hike is for travelers who like the hiking adventure, with breaks, in a single day. The beauty and history of the area surround the hiker every step of the way.  With its gorges and passes and climactic mountain views. True Andean highlanders, the Incas knew and loved the countless natural zones that lay within the folds of their vast domain.

Day 2Huayllabamba - Pacaymayo

We climb the steep-sided Llullucha valley past a rushing stream and through enchanted native polylepis woodland. Crossing the rim of a small plateau, we abruptly find ourselves in the puna, the treeless grasslands of the high Andes. The trail traverses an open slope opposite mighty mountain crags as we ascend to the first and highest pass, Warmiwañusca (Dead Woman), up to 4200 m.a.s.l. approximately. You will not only enjoy incredible panoramic views from here but you will also have the satisfaction to have reached the top. After lunch in Vizcachayoc we will descend towards Pacaymayo (3500 m.a.s.l.) for dinner and camp.

Meals – Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks

Day 3Pacaymayo - Wiñayhuayna

After to have a delicious breakfast ,we pick up an Inca stairway and ascend again past the small Inca site of Runkuracay. As we reach the second pass, the landscape opens onto spectacular new views to the snow peaks of the Pumasillo range. We descend to the ruins of Sayacmarca (Inaccessible Town), an intricate labyrinth of houses, plazas and water channels, perched precariously on a rocky spur overlooking the Acobamba valley. The Inca trail, now a massive buttressed structure of granite paving stones, continues along the steep upper fringes of the cloud forest through a colorful riot of orchids, bromeliads, mosses and ferns. At the third pass, pinnacles topped with Inca viewing platforms overlook the archaeological complex of Phuyupatamarca ,Pausing to explore the wondrous maze of Inca stone towers, fountains and stairways that spill down the mountainside here, we begin a long descent through ever-changing layers of cloud forest. An Inca stairway partly cut from living granite leads us finally to our camp by the ruins of Wiñay Wayna (Forever Young), the largest and most exquisite of the Inca Trail sites.

Meals- Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks

Day 4Wiñay Huayna - Machu Picchu - Cusco

An early morning hike takes us across a steep mountainside through lush, humid cloud-forest of giant ferns and broad-leaf vegetation. Suddenly we cross the stone threshold of Inti punku (Sun Gate) and encounter an unforgettable sweep of natural beauty and human artistry –a backdrop of twisting gorge and forested peaks framing the magical city of Machu Picchu. We complete the final leg down the royal flagstone walkway, past outlying shrines and buildings and into the heart of Machu Picchu, a guided tour of the highlights and some individual exploring among Machu Picchu’s multitude of hidden nooks and corners. In the early afternoon a bus takes us to the small town of Aguas Calientes, where we board our return train to Cusco.

Meals – Breakfast and snack

Inca Trail Permits & Campsites:

The government has strictly limited the number of people permitted on the Inca Trail during 2015 (permits are issued to about 200 trekkers per day plus 300 porters). We recommend that you make a trek booking as early as possible. In 2014 the trek permits for some dates sold out more than 5 months in advance !! However don’t make a booking until you have all the group details (names, passport numbers, ages etc) and you are sure about your trek departure date since these details cannot be changed after we have bought your trek permit.

So far in 2014 we have managed to obtain trek permits for ALL of our clients and have obtained the campsite Wiñay Wayna on the 3rd night of the trek (the campsite nearest to Machu Picchu) for ALL groups. Camping at Wiñay Wayna allows you to arrive at Machu Picchu for sunrise. Only tour operators that buy their permits early can do this. However the campsite Wiñay Wayna can never be guaranteed and clients have to accept that we may have to use other campsites depending on availability & allocation of trek permits

Extras & Options:

Personal porters can be hired to help carry your personal items such as clothes, sleeping bag etc. The services of a half porter (maximum 6kg or 13lb per person) can be hired for US$70. If you hire the services of a half porter we will provide you with a lockable porter bag to safeguard your equipment (you will need to supply the small padlock). However, even with this service you will still need to take a daypack to carry your essential items such as rain poncho, warm fleece, camera and water bottle. Please note that due to new government regulations the maximum number of porters that we can use in each group has now been capped. This is why we have had to limit the maximum amount of personal equipment that you can give to a porter to carry for you to 6kg or 13lb per person. (The maximum amount that each porter can carry on the Inca Trail has also been limited to 18kg or 40lb per porter, i.e. 12kg of items for tourists and 6kg for their own equipment). Approximately 30% of our clients hire the services of an extra half porter.)
 An extra night in Aguas Calientes can easily be arranged independently. Hotels costs and costs associated with returning to Machu Picchu the following day are additional to trek costs. For more information see our frequently asked questions. Please note that if you spend an extra night in Aguas Calientes we will purchase your train tickets from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo, for the following day. Obviously we won’t be able to send a bus especially to collect you from Ollantaytambo so you will have to catch one of the many buses waiting for the train to take you back to Cusco (approx additional cost of these buses is US$5pp). You will not receive a refund for the unused bus ride back to Cusco on the 4th day of the trek.
We can also provide vegetarian meals or cater for special diets at no extra cost but we need to know when you make the trek reservation.
You can hire sleeping bags in our office. All sleeping bags are special for the treks (easy to wash). They are washed after every use and are guaranteed to be clean. After we have hired out our standard sleeping bags just 15 times, we donate it to a porter to use. We have now issued sleeping bags free of charge to all of our porters (over a 230 in total) although they are constantly being replaced as they become old and worn out.Cost: US$25 per person for the 4 day/3 night trek. Weight 2.5 kg and are rated to 10 degrees below freezing (nice and warm even during the coldest of nights experienced on the Inca Trail).
