INCA TRAIL 4D/3N
The famous Classic Trail of the Incas leads you to one of the new Seven Wonders of the World; the Quechua Citadel of Machu Picchu. It was re-discovered for the western world by Hiram Bingham ΙΙΙ in 1911 with the guidance of local indigenous farmers. The Classic Inca Trail is a very popular 4 day hike culminating with the awesome view from the original Inca Sungate on your final trek day descending into the site for a full guided tour.
DAY BY DAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 - CUSCO TO HUAYLLABAMBA
Early in the morning, we take the way leading from Cusco to Km82 (2750 mt/9130 ft), this is our check point at the beginning of the trek. The trail follows the river valley for a while; this is a good training day before the second more challenging day.
DAY 2 - HUAYLLABAMBA TO PACAYMAYO
DAY 3 - PACAYMAYO TO PHUYUPATAMARCA
DAY 4 - PHUYUPATAMARCA TO MACHU PICCHU
We begin the final leg of our trek to the lost city of Machupicchu. We descend for 3hrs, about 900m below from Phuyupatamarca. We will visit yet more interesting Inca sites; Intipata and Wiñayhuayna, one of the most impressive Inca sites along our route and just 2 hrs before the Sungate entrance (“Inti Punku”).
This is the Inca’s original entrance to Machu Picchu, where we catch our first glimpse of the citadel from afar. The Sungate is probably the most sensational part of the trail.
" I wanted to thank you both so much for such an amazing time. The entire trip so exceeded my expectations. The service was top notch. All of the small touches were perfect. I think I'd mentioned in some initial feedback that we did miss our champagne. Other than that, I don't anything could have made it more perfect. Marcial really is a perfect guide. We were so lucky to have had him on our trek. His knowledge of the history, people and culture really added to our experience. He was great at preparing us as well as continually encouraging us along the way. Mayra too was awesome - running a tight ship. So personable and knowledgeable. They both really added a tremendous amount to our entire trip. Another standout.. Claudio... what a gem.. He's so smart with such initiative. With his smile and vest on, he was always attentive and happy to work with us. I'm not sure when and how it was planned, but I was surprised with a birthday celebration. It was so touching and definitely a highlight of the experience. Who knew that a birthday cake cooked in a pan over a flame could taste so good (throughout the trip the food was really amazing). The birthday party really took it over the top, so I thank whoever planned that part. Again, everything exceeded my expectations. While it was the hardest thing physically that I've ever done in my life, it will forever be one of the most memorable moments. Truly an amazing birthday.
