Take a step back in time and explore the mysterious Machu Picchu Citadel on an exciting Peru travel adventure and Inca Trail

Declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and teeming with fascinating legends and history, Machu Picchu is without a doubt the highlight of any traveler's trip to Peru. But reaching the famed citadel by foot along the original Inca Trail brings a whole new perspective to this mystical experience.

The two day Inca Trail trek offers a less demanding option than the regular four day trek, perfect for visitors who wish to arrive to the ruins by foot, the same way the Inca originally did, while retaining their comfort. This trail starts towards the end of the four day trek and follows the final leg of the famous route.

While walking along the beautifully preserved trail you will see ruins carved out of solid rock as well as enjoy the jaw dropping scenery of the stunning Andean mountains. The two day route offers a perfect taste of a Peru trekking adventure, with the added comfort of a night in a quality Machu Picchu hotel.


01 day--Cusco / Km104 / Chachabamba / Wiñaywayna / Machupicchu:

Transfer to the train station to take the early train to Km 104 starting point of our hike, passing through the Sacred Valley. Visit the chachabamba site then three hours walking up until the archeological site of Wiñaywayna, this site is well known as the spiritual place of the hike. After that we keep walking until Intipunku (sun gate). From there we can see panoramic view of Machupicchu then half an hour walking down to see sun set on; then we are going to take the bus to get to Aguas Calientes town and spend the night in hotel, also we will be able to go to hot springs there.

02 day-- Aguas Calientes / Machupicchu / Cusco
After breakfast, we will take the bus up to Machupicchu and be there earlier than the other groups and have sun rise. Then we will have a guided tour for three hours at least. Then explore by yourself the free time at your leisure.
