INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU 5 days / 4 nights INTRODUCTION: 


The royal Inca trail to Machu picchu is a particular trek in the world. This Inca trail to Machu picchu sets out from Chilca, and takes about four to five days of tough hiking. The route runs through an impressing range of altitudes, where climates and eco-systems range from the high Andean plain, down to the cloud forests. The trail climbs up through two highland passes (the higher of the two, Warmiwañuska, lies at 4,200 m.a.s.l.) before reaching Machu Picchu through the Inti Punku or Gateway of the Sun. One of the attractions of the trail is that it winds carved granite Inca settlements (Wiñay Wayna, Phuyupatamarca), all of these surrounded by a breathtaking natural scenery. The forests abound in hundreds of species of orchids, brightly-colored birds and dream-like landscapes, the ideal complement to this indispensable hikers' route. Machu Picchu was connected with the city of Cusco and the rest of the Inca empire by amazing trails, specifically designed for the use of the Incas, in perfect harmony with the flora and fauna of the area. It has to be said that they had an absolutely wonderful knowledge of architecture and construction. Throughout the whole trail you can locate some shelters surrounded by gorgeous country sites and great views. Some of the trails lead you to a few archeological remains. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is known as the most famous and tough hiking circuit all over South America, because of the conjunction of different elements that it offers to its visitors.

 

INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU 5 days / 4 nights ITINERARY: 


First Day on Inca Trail: Cusco - Llactapata
This Inca trail to Machu Picchu starts with the picking up from your hotel, getting through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, heading for Chilca. At this point we meet with our supporting staff (porters) for the whole Inca path. From here we start the Inca Trail itself. At night we`ll set up our camp at Llactapata, an important fort along the Vilcanota River, which in part of its course is called Wilcamayu (Sacred River).


Second Day on Inca Trail: Llactapata - Llullucha
This day we`ll do a stretch of the Inca Trail which comprehends from Llactapata to Llullucha. After a refreshing breakfast we`ll walk as if going to the Salkantay, but heading for Wayllabamba towards the North West in order to get at Lllullucha, where we`ll have our second camping, in the lower place of the Warmihuañusca Passage, the highest point along the whole Inca Trail.


Third Day on Inca Trail: Llullucha - Phuyupatamarca
Very early we start an ascending trek getting through the Warmihuañusca Pass, which is at a height of 4,200 M.A.S.L. (13,700 Feet). From this site we can appreciate very well preserved stretches of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and spectacular views from the Andes just to descend heading for Phuyupatamarca, as we watch the archaeological sites Runcuracay and Sayacvmarca, remains which offer an anticipation in architectural beauty to the finish of the Inca Trail, and the majestic Machu Picchu.


Fourth Day on Inca Trail: Phuyupatamarca - Machu-Picchu
Very early on this day we`ll go to Machu Picchu, having previously visited and greeted the archaeological site of Wiñayhuayna and the Intipata. Two hours later, in the final stretch of the Inca Trail to Machu picchu, we`ll get in by the Inti Punku (the Sun`s Gate), our first contact with Machu Picchu. Then we`ll descend to Aguas Calientes, better known as the Machu Picchu`s town. We`ll camp next to the river (1 night hotel is optional). You`ll have enough time to relax in the Thermal Baths of the Machu Picchu town.


Fifth Day on Inca Trail: Machu-Picchu - Cusco
We will wake up very early in the morning . After breakfast we will take a bus up to visit the new wonder of the ancient world : Machu Picchu. You`ll have a two hours guidance inside Machu Picchu (the old mountain). If you wish you`ll can go upwards to the Wayna Picchu (the young mountain). The only available times to ascend to this mountain  are the next: 07 and 10 A.M. The ascending groups are comprised by 200 persons. After your visit we`ll take the returning train from Aguas Calientes to the Cusco city.
