Today Our trek takes us along the most impressive stretch of Machu Picchu 2 day Hike. We’ll visit beautiful Inca sites, see a variety of flora and fauna and get to take in the fantastic panoramas of the Andes Mountains. Covering 11km of the Short Inca Trail journey begins in the Sacred Valley and works its way up along an original Inca Trail to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna before continuing on to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate (Inti Punku).
After a full day trekking, we’ll arrive to the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) in the late afternoon and get our first views of Machu Picchu spread out on the mountain below. The light at this time of day is great for photos and with fewer tourists in the site it’s a perfect time to take some pictures. After we’ve passed through the Sun Gate we’ll carry on along the trail a little way before taking a side trail that leads us to Aguas Calientes in the valley below where we’ll check in to our hotel.
We wake early to catch a bus up to the Maccu Picchu Inca site where we will have the chance to enjoy sunrise and experience the wonder of Machu Picchu in the morning light. You will enjoy a two hour tour from a local guide around this astonishing archeological site and then enjoy the hike to the top of Huayna Picchu, the iconic mountain peak that overlooks the site of Machu Picchu . After we will return to Machu Picchu Town by bus from where we catch our train to Ollantaytambo and then onwards by private bus back to Cusco.
