Classic Inka Trail to machu Picchu

5 DAYS

Classic Inka Trail to machu Picchu

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. O

Itinerary

First Day onInca 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 theInca 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 onInca 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 onInca Trail: Llullucha - Phuyupatamarca

Very early we start an ascending trek getting through theWarmihuañusca 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 onInca 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.
