Inca Trail – 2 Day

Inca Trail – 2 Day is a fantastic option for those who don’t have the time or desire to hike the full length of the Inca Trail. No camping is required. With beautiful scenery, a wide variety of flora and fauna and a visit to the Inca Trail’s most beautiful site (Wiñay Wayna), you get to enjoy the best of the Inca Trail on a condensed schedule and still enter Machu Picchu through the awe-inspiring Sun Gate entrance. With one day of hiking and one day visiting the ruins of Machu Picchu, the 2-Day Inca Trail tour is perfect for families with children and those on a tight schedule.

Day 1: Cusco – Kilometer 104 – Aguas Calientes

We will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco  or in the sacred valley  in the early morning, drive to Ollantaytambo, and from there take the Machu Picchu train to kilometer 104. There our trek will begin and we will work our way up the most impressive stretch of the Inca Trail. As we pass through the lush and verdant cloud forest that covers the mountain we will see a variety of plants, flowers and birds. We will also visit beautiful Inca sites, including Wiñay Wayna, and enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Andes mountains. After a full day of trekking we’ll arrive at the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) and get our first views of Machu Picchu spread out on the mountain below. The light in late afternoon is great for photos, and with fewer tourists in the site later in the day, it’s a perfect time to take many pictures. After we’ve passed through the Sun Gate we’ll continue along the trail  to get to machupicchu  the lost city of the incas, on this day  we can only take pictures   and appreciate  the beauty of this city. after photos  we head out  of the city  to the bus station   for the bus  ride to Aguas Calientes in the valley below where we’ll check into our hotel.
