Inca Trail

inca-trail-trek21

See for yourself why this is the most popular hiking trail in the Andes! Spellbinding mountain scenery, unforgettable Inca sites, and a cornucopia of flowers and hummingbirds await you.  Stroll down the Royal Inca Road into the famous Lost City of the Incas. During four hiking days you cover about 45km, starting at 8,400ft and finishing at 7,860ft above sea level.  You must cross two high passes with a maximum elevation of 13,776ft.  While the trail conditions are generally good, and indeed the condition of centuries old Inca paving stones is astonishing, some steep trail sections require careful footing and good hiking boots with lug soles.

Itinerary   
Day 1: Cuzco - WayllabambaToday you will begin to walk a stretch of amazing Inca Trail. After being picked up from your hotel you will be transferred to kilometre 82 of the road leading to the Sacred Valley. The Inca Trail ("Capac Nan" in Quechua) is a network of roads, 60 000 Km. or so, that linked the Inca Empire and had its center in Cusco. You will walk until noon, have lunch and then continue until five in the afternoon, when the camp will be installed. The first day is usually the most complicated because it involves getting acquainted with the route in addition to it being largely a slope. However, the porters, hard men and natives of the Andes, will help you enjoy the journey and transport your luggage without difficulty.
Day 2: Wayllabamba - PacaymayoToday you will tour the second part of the forty Km. of the trek that ends in Machu Picchu. After an early breakfast you will start walking with the first rays of the sun at seven in the morning and will get to know Wayllabamba, Llullucha, Warmiwañuska and Pacaymayo where finally the camp will be set. The route will have ups and downs and the view is breathtaking. The path is probably the most famous in America and one of the most spectacular in the world. It is a trekk in which the ruins are interspersed with vegetation and the remains of a civilization that came to dominate hostile climates and geographies to connect the administrative and religious centers of the Tahuantinsuyo. Enjoy the walk.
Day 3: Pacaymayo - WiñaywaynaToday will be a spectacular day. Early morning walk but only until one in the afternoon: then you will have reached Wiñaywayna, the most important archaeological section of Capac Nan. This is a small urban area where several fountains stand out, as well as a tower built with finely carved stones. It has two levels connected by a staircase and escorted by terraces built on a cliff that overlooks the Vilcanota canyon. Remainder of the afternoon off to rest and walk.
Day 4: Wiñaywayna - Machu PicchuEnter Machu Picchu early in the morning and spend a full day exploring the Lost City of the Incas. For centuries Machu Picchu was buried in jungle until the American historian Hiram Bingham stumbled upon it almost by accident in 1911. Although little is still known about the ‘lost city of the Incas’ it is obvious, by the quality of the stonework and the abundance of ornamental sites that Machu Picchu must have been an important ceremonial centre. Return to Cuzco via Ollantaytambo this afternoon. The tour concludes on arrival in Cuzco late eveving.
