2 DAYS | from $489
DAY 1: INCA TRAIL (DAY 1)
The first day of this trip starts early in the morning, directly after a GOTOPERU rep picks you up from your Cusco hotel. You will be taken to the Ollantaytambo station and subsequently take the train to KM 104, where the real journey begins.
The first thing you’ll notice upon arriving at your destination is an old-fashioned suspension bride. This is the start of the trail. We will begin trekking over the Urubamba River en route to some very old, small and intriguing Inca ruins on the Chachabama historic site. Make sure you get plenty of pictures and plenty of water, because then begins a four-hour hike to the Wiñaywayna enclosure, which is well over a mile above sea level (8,858 feet to be exact). The air up here is crisp and clean, however light, but the journey upward is actually rather gentle.
This location is an important spiritual site of the Incan people. With large stone structures carved into the mountain, Wiñaywayna looks like an outdoor stadium for giants and is one of the most well preserved (naturally so) Incan sites in the region.
Make sure to keep your head on a swivel as you cross this monument and onto the main Inca Trail. The river valleys and peaks of the lush, green expanse will leave you speechless for the entire journey. The goal is to cut through the ridge above Machu Picchu and to descend on this historic location.
After a short hike, you will reach Intipunku (modern day Puerta del Sol), where you will head down the 40-minute trail to the town of Aguas Calientes. Here, you will get a great meal and have access to the hotel. Sleep tight, because day two is right around the corner.
DAY 2: INCA TRAIL (DAY 2)
You won’t have to walk nearly as much on day two; this is all about soaking up the historic site of Machu Picchu. You will receive a guided tour of what experts refer to as the world’s most ancient—and perhaps most sophisticated—city. Machu Picchu is an entire city, built by the Inca Pachacuteq, and it features many houses, storage areas, temples, a large central gathering area, and even roadways and hundreds of steps – all carved out of stone by the ancient Incans.
After getting a personal tour of the city from an expert historian tour guide, you will get to enjoy the rest of your day before returning back to your Cusco hotel.
