Inca Trail To Machu Picchu 4 days:

Day 1: Cusco – Km 82 – Wayllabamba – Yuncachimpa

We’ll leave Cusco (3350m/10990f) at 5:30 am in a tourist bus heading for the Sacred Valley. We’ll have a short break in Ollantaytambo for breakfast before arriving at km 82, the official beginning of the trek. We’ll meet the trek team at km 82 and register for the hike. After crossing the Rio Urubamba (2200m/4850f), we’ll begin the legendary Inca Trail. The first day is easy and a good warm-up for the following days. We’ll have lunch in Miskay by a small river bank, and learn about the nearby archeological complex Llactapata. Next, we’ll hike to Wayllabamba (3100m/10170f) and ascend to Yuncachimpa (3300m/10826f), our camping site for the night. This campsite has a great view of the snow-capped Veronica Mountain.

  • Level of difficulty: moderate
  • Hiking time: 6-7 hours
  • Total distance: 11 km/6.8 m

Day 2: Yuncachimpa – LLulluchapampa – Warmihuañusca Pass – Pacaymayu – Runkurakay Pass – Chaquicocha

The second day has an early start, and everybody should walk at his/her own pace. We’ll meet up during short breaks or while ascending the stone stairs. The first 3km/2m are steep, with humid woodlands and the sounds of water to accompany you. The trail first leads through the Valley of Llulluchapampa (3850m/12631f), and ascends for 2-3 hours until you reach the highest point: Warmihuañusca Pass (also called Dead Woman Pass due to its silhouette, 4200m/13780f). This climb is the most difficult part of the Inca Trail. After a short break at the summit, you continue your hike with a steep descent to Pacaymayo River (Sunrise River) towards Runkurakay Pass (3050m/10007f) until we reach our camping site, Chaquicocha at (3650m/11975f). Here you get a well-deserved rest from the strenuous day while enjoying an amazing view of the mountains.

  • Level of difficulty: Strenuous
  • Hiking time: 8-9 hours
  • Total distance: 15 km/9 m

Day 3: Chaquicocha – Phuyupatamarca – Wiñayhuayna

The third day is the most beautiful; you’ll see changes in the ecosystems while you walk to the tropical forest of Wiñaywayna. We’ll pass two small lakes at the top of the second pass (3950m/12960f). It’s a gentle climb through beautiful cloud forests and a small Inca tunnel before the third pass (3700m/12140f) offers a lovely view over the Urubamba Valley. The nearest settlement is Phuyupatamarca (Town Above the Clouds) (3600m/11811f). There’s a well-preserved site with a series of Inca baths that are testimony to the excellence of Inca engineering. We pass another Inca tunnel before visiting the ruins of Wiñaywayna (Forever Young) (2650m/8694f). The Inca stairs change into a zigzag trail until we reach a red-roofed white building, our last camping site, where there are hot showers (cost 5 soles) and bottled drinks.

  • Level of difficulty: Moderate – Easy
  • Hiking time: 5-6 hours
  • Total distance: 10 km/6 m

Day 4: Wiñayhuayna – Machu Picchu – Cusco

After breakfast at 4:30 am, we’ll head – equipped with our flashlights – to Inti Punku (the Sun Gate) for our first spectacular glimpse of Machu Pichhu at sunrise. The last descent takes almost one hour before we arrive hiking at Machu Picchu (2400m//7874f) around 8:00 am. For about two hours, you’ll have a guided tour to better understand the meaning and use of the ancient buildings. After the tour, you’ll have time to explore the archeological site on your own (e.g. go to the Inca Bridge, revisit intriguing structures, or climb Wayna Picchu if you have a reservation). Afterwards, a bus takes you down to Aguas Calientes, where you can soak in the natural springs (cost 10 soles). We’ll leave Aguas Calientes by train to return to Cusco in the afternoon. You will have completed the 04 day Machu Picchu Inca Trail.

 Notes:
  1. Permission to hike Wayna Picchu: Permission requires booking months in advance with an additional charge $70.00USD to guarantee your entrance.
  2.  Extra porter: We can arrange for a porter to carry your backpack/luggage if your luggage weighs 15kg/33lb or less (the weight limit is mandated by Peruvian law 26702). The cost is $140.00USD, and includes transport, entrance fee to the Inca Trail, food and camping equipment for the porter.
  3. Tips: Porters, cooks and guides always appreciate tips for their services. The porters are also grateful for small donations of clothes and school supplies for their children.
  4. Camping sites: The camping sites described in our itinerary (Yuncachimpa, Chaquicocha and Wiñaywayna) may be changed due to availability and restrictions on the number of trekkers. In high season (May-September) some campsites, such as Wiñaywayna, are almost always full. If the campsites are full, the Ministry of Culture (the government entity which supervises and controls the Inca Trail) will assign other campsites (Wayllabamba, Pacaymayu and Phuyupatamarca) as needed.
  5. Return ticket: We’ll leave Aguas Calientes by train either at 2:55pm or 6:45pm. The schedule depends on ticket availability and on how far in advance you book your trip. In the afternoon, you can have lunch in one of many good restaurants in Aguas Calientes or relax in the natural springs. Depending on which train you take, you’ll arrive at your hotel in Cusco at about 6:00pm or 10:00pm.
  6. Health considerations: It is a common misconception that because many people do the Inca Trail, it’s easy. It is not. The Trail is 45km/26 m long and involves great physical exertion to complete. Combined with the high altitude and potential extreme weather, the trek can be difficult. Therefore, we strongly recommend you are well acclimatized to high altitudes, in good physical condition and healthy. You must declare any medical issues in advance and bring your own medications. We want you to enjoy your trip and be safe!
  7. Weather: The Andean weather can be unpredictable, despite the sharp divide between dry and wet seasons. The dry season runs from May to October or November; the rainy season goes from December through April. Nevertheless, Inca Trail lies in forested areas and high-altitude where the weather is unpredictable and can change within hours.
