Day 1: Cusco – Wiñaywayna – Machu Picchu

We will start our day with an early morning scenic train ride over the Andes down to the fertile Sacred Valley of the Incas. From here we follow the Urubamba River to Km 104. From the archaeological site of Chachabamba (2250 meters / 7,500 feet), we will start our Inca Trail with an approximately three hour climb to the archaeological complex of Wiñaywayna (2650 meters / 8,750 feet). This site is considered one of the most beautiful on the entire Inca Trail, due to its spectacular location and particularly fine architecture. We will visit this fascinating site and enjoy a good lunch before continuing our hike through high cloud forest to the famous Sun Gate, or Intipunku. From here there is a panoramic view of the Lost City of the Incas:  legendary Machu Picchu (2400 meters / 8000 feet). After a short walk to the main entrance we will board a bus to take us to the small town of Aguas Calientes, where you can choose to relax in the hotel or visit the natural hot springs.
