These forgotten routes will come to life as you relive what was once a major road system some 600 years ago!  This classic hike starts out of Cusco and covers the major attractions on this incredible footpath.  The day before you will have a 6 pm briefing in the lobby of your hotel...

These four magnificent days take you to seldom-seen archaeological sites above the rushing Urubamba River and through a number of ecosystems that span from temperate to warm and tropical environments, up and down the spectacular Andes Mountains. These forgotten routes will come to life as you relive what was once a major road system some 600 years ago!  This classic hike starts out of Cusco and covers the major attractions on this incredible footpath.  The day before you will have a 6 pm briefing in the lobby of your hotel to answer any and all questions you might have about this venture.  Among some of the key points to be covered are the following:  You may pack up to 11 lbs (5.5 kilos) of personal gear that includes sleeping bag / mattress in a plastic bag.  The rest of your luggage can be checked at your hotel in Cusco.  At the trailhead the plastic bag will be placed into a duffle to be carried by porters for the hike.  You must provide and carry your own daypack with items needed during the trek, i.e. water for the first day, sunscreen, hat, rain gear, valuables, camera, first aid, warm layers, etc.

Itinerary

2 Days

DAY 1. CUSCO / MACHU PICCHU

05h00 to 05h30 · Your guide arrives at your hotel with driver and private vehicle to accompany you to the train station at Ollantaytambo.

From here it is downhill from the temperate life zone to the unexpectedly lush eastern jungles where you get off and start your 12-kilometer (7-mile) to the Sun Gate and the breathtaking view of Machu Picchu down below.

Next is the shuttle bus down to the town of Aguas Calientes to check-in to your hotel. Enjoy dinner in town at this frontier town.

Note: Easy to moderate hiking with a couple of steep spots; no prior experience is necessary.

 

DAY 2. MACCHU PICCHU / CUSCO

After an early breakfast, your guide will accompany you on the shuttle bus to the entry of Machu Picchu for a privately guided tour, followed by time to re-enter on your own (up to 3 times per day). You can purchase fresh sandwiches at an open café near the park entry or pack your own snacks for lunch.

Take the shuttle bus back to Aguas Calientes to retrieve your overnight bags and board the train to Ollantaytambo. If you’re staying in Cusco, our driver will be waiting for you for a final 2-hour drive to your hotel for an evening arrival.

Travel time from Machu Picchu station to Cusco is about 4 to 5 hours.

 

Note:  Please return the duffle bag to the guide after the hike or leave it at the reception desk in the hotel.

Important Note

Arrival to Cusco is recommended at least 2 days prior to hike. This hike is perfect for active travelers of all ages. Please be advised that once you get off the train at kilometer 104 there is no way to turn around and go back. Hikers must be fit enough to complete the hike before the park closes at 5:00 pm in order to catch the last bus down to the village of Agua Calientes. On average most people are able to complete the hike in 6 hours. If anyone does not make it in time, the only way to get to the village is by walking down about 1 ½ to 2 hours in the dark. There are no vehicles in Aguas Calientes.
