    Day 1: CUSCO – KM 104 – AGUAS CALIENTES.
    We will pick up from your hotel at 05.30 am and then transferred to the Ollantaytamtambo train station, to board the train that will take us to the Km. 104 on the Ollanta – Machupicchu Railway (at this point we will start our trek). We will reach Km. 104 around 10:00 am. On this point we get off the train and start our journey crossing the Willkamayu River (Urubamba River) using a bridge (cable and wood made). We start the trek visiting the famous Inka Sanctuary of Chachabamba, a beautiful palace with nice rooms and walls. After having a proper introduction of Inca History, we will climb up a trail of roughly 8 km. (3 hours), and afterwards we will reach the archaeological site of Wiñaywayna (2700 m), second only to Machupicchu in beauty. This fantastic site is a perfect example of Inca terrace farming, and it was probably an experimental laboratory for agricultural purposes in Inca times. The name Wiñaywayna comes from a name given to a beautiful orquid typical in the zone, and it means FOREVER YOUNG. Later on we will continue our trek, crossing the cloud forest though a narrow path till we reach the Inti Punku (Sun Gate). At this spot you will have a great view of the most beautiful Inca Citadel of Peru, “Machupicchu”. This is indeed a special point where most of the hikers gather to get the best photo of this sacred city.

    Afterwards we will descend towards Machupicchu, and will go down to Aguas Calientes by bus, where we will spend the night at the designated hotel. On this evening hikers got the option of visiting and relax at the hot springs located at the upper section of valley or just walk around the streets of this charming village.

    We get up early and after breakfast we will take the bus that will take us up to the Sanctuary of Machupicchu (20 min). Once there, our guide will show us the most important sectors of this great Inca City, such as the great Intiwatana (solar clock), the Sun Temple, the urban sector, the agricultural sector among others, and will provide an explanation. This guided tour will last approximately 2 ½ hours and afterwards we will have free time to explore the ruins on your own or just relax. By 2:00 pm. We suggest to take the bus down to Aguas Calientes, keep in mind that buses only will drive you down as long as it is full. At Aguas Calientes you may have lunch and then take the train back to Ollanta, so you will arrive in Ollanta, we will transfer to your hotel.
