INCA TRAIL 5D /4N

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Wayllabamba

We’ll pick you up at your hotel in Cusco, take a two-hour bus ride to the small Andean town of Chilca and hop a train to Piscacucho (2700m/8858ft), a community located at Km. 82 of the Cusco-Machu Picchu railroad. We meet our porters and camp staff and head off walking along the Vilcanota River. Our trail winds through beautiful landscapes with magnificent views of snow-capped Wakay Wilca (Nevado Veronica - 5800m/19000ft). We’ll have time to explore the Inca ruins of Llactapata before continuing up the Cusichaca Valley to the community of Wayllabamba (3000m/9842ft) where we camp for the night.

Day 2: Wayllabamba to Pacaymayo

An early rise and hearty breakfast prepare us for a climb up a narrow valley, through Polylepis woodlands and along beautiful streams. The trail is steep with numerous steps and leads us to the Abra Warmihuañusca Pass (4200m/13780ft), the highest and most famous mountain pass on the Inca Trail. If the weather is clear we'll get spectacular views of the snow-capped Huayanay peak (Nevado Huayanay 5158m/16923ft)! We descend along a winding path of steps and through a narrow valley. During lunch we enjoy the spectacular landscape before we continue walking to our campsite in the Pacaymayo Valley (3350m/10991ft). We’ll have a well-deserved rest, showers and flush toilets!

Day 3: Pacaymayo to Phuyupatamarca

We begin our ascent over our second pass, walking on a real Inca road and climbing an impressive, carved stairway to the minor ruins of Runturacay. Continuing on the Inca stairway go over the pass and drop down to the spectacular ruins of (3600m/11811ft) for lunch. The Sayacmarca site is most likely the remains of an Inca fortress. There are remnants of semicircular buildings, water fountains, and irrigation channels. As we continue on along an exquisite, paved Inca road, we walk through the cloud forest to our camp at Phuyupatamarca (“town over the clouds”), one of the best-preserved Inca archeological sites on our trek. The numerous baths, fountains and platforms, all with spectacular views of the Urubamba River, may have been built for sacred rituals.

Day 4: Phuyupatamarca to Machu Picchu

From Phuyupatamarca the trail descends through some of the finest, intact Inca roads, through cloud forest and down a steep Inca stairway to Wiñay Wayna. This site was only discovered in the 1940's and rivals Machu Picchu in grandeur. This fantastic site, located on a steep edge overlooking the Río Urubamba, is a perfect example of Inca terrace farming. The name Wiñay Wayna (“forever young”) is also the name of a beautiful orchid found in the area. From here it's two hours through the tree ferns of the cloud forest to Inti Punku (Sun Gate) and a great view of Machu Picchu. We’ll have time to wander through Machu Picchu in the late afternoon before we take the bus down to our hotel by the Urubamba River.

Day 5: Machu Picchu to Cusco

We have a whole day to explore Machu Picchu! This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the architectural wonders of the world.

We catch the bus to the town of Aguas Calientes and from there, the late afternoon train back to Cusco.
