The ruins of Chachabamba provide the first sight of the ancient Inca civilisation along the trail, followed by an upward climb to Winay Wayna (Forever Young) at an elevation of 2680 metres (8792 ft). This impressive complex includes numerous terraces, a religious and urban sector. Many consider this the most impressive site on the entire Inca Trail. We'll continue our journey  emerging at the Inti Punku (Sun Gate) at an elevation of 2730 metres (8792 ft). From this vantage point we can enjoy the views of Machu Picchu below us. 

 

Bus journey to Aguas Calientes. Just a note - we will be back the following day to explore the site in more dept.

 

Included Experiences

  • Sacred Valley -  Inca Trail hiking to Machu Picchu

 

Accommodation

  • Hotel (1 night)

 

Special Information

The Inca trail will cover approximately 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) and take around 5 hours. 

If you do not wish to join the hike, you may want to take the train directly to Machu Picchu and wait for the rest of the group to arrive. Just let us know.


 

Just a note that for the two day hiking trip to Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, the train to Aguas Calientes only allows one small piece of luggage per person.  Therefore, we suggest you only pack the required essentials.

Your main luggage will be safely stored at the Ollantaytambo train station.

 

DAY 4

MACHU PICCHU / CUSCO

 

Exploring Machu Picchu with a 2 hour guided tour.

Breath-in Meditation with Chico and Instructors - Face it, Feel it and Free it.

 

Return for an early morning exploration of Machu Picchu - 30-minute bus ride and arrive at about 6 am. Built sometime between 1450 and 1460, the city was deserted less than a century later following the Spanish invasion and ‘lost’ for hundreds of years before it was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911. The mortar-free design of the city is earthquake resistant and the stones so precisely cut that to this day not even a knife can fit between them.
