Day 1: Cusco – Patallacta
Early in the morning you will be met by their guide at the lobby of your hotel at the arranged time to take the private vehicle that will transfer you to Km 82 of the Rail Road to Machu Picchu, from where you will be met by your field stuff (Porters and Cooks) with all our equipment. From here we will start our hike to km 88, using a little visited portion of the Inca Trail following the right margin of the Urubamba River to then reach the bridge that will take us to Q’ente, located at Km 88 of the railroad to Machu Picchu. We will cross the bridge and hike for about 30 minutes to the first camp in Q’ente. Lunch will be served at campsite. After lunch, we will visit Machu Q’ente (one ½ hour hike) and Patallacta ruins,Patallacta Inca site. After time to enjoy landscape, we will pass Cusichaka river then we will arrive at Patallacta to camp. Camp. (L / D)
Day 2: Llactapata – Llulluchapampa.
Today is another relatively easy day. Most groups would be powering ahead along the Inca Trail today and would be heading over Dead Woman’s Pass, the highest point on the trek and one of the hardest and longest climbs on the Inca Trail. We’re going to take things at a more leisurely pace and our goal for today is a campsite just before the pass, Llulluchapampa, this breaks the hardest stretch over two days making the climb significantly easier.
On the way to Llulluchapampa we’ll once again go off the beaten track to visit the least visited of all the sites on the Inca Trail, the Inca fort of Paucarcancha. As we climb up to Llulluchapampa we’ll pass through various biozones including the low sierra, cloud forest and the high puna. There are many opportunities to see a variety of plant and birdlife and if we are lucky we may also spot White Tailed Deer. Our campsite for the night is at 3800m / 12460ft. and just like before it is tranquil and quiet with most trekkers either camping in the valley below or on the other side of the pass.
Day 3: Llulluchapampa – Phuyupatamarca.
Today is our longest day and crosses two high passes; luckily for us we’re nearly at the first pass and once we’ve passed the second the walking is easy with very little ups and downs to contend with. Today sees some of the best views and scenery of the whole Inca Trail and includes visits to two Inca sites (Runcuraccay and Sayacmarca); with fantastic views of the high snow-capped peaks for most of the day and the cloud forest all around us today is by far the most visually stunning.
Our campsite for tonight is at Phuyupatamarca (3680m / 12073ft) from where we’ll get our first views of Machu Picchu mountain far in the distance (the site itself is hidden from view). The views of the sunset from here are fantastic and once again the campsite is quiet with the majority of trekkers camping closer to Machu Picchu.
Day 4: Phuyupatamarca – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes
We will arise very early so that we may catch the sunrise from Intipunku (Sun Gate), with the anticipation of continuing on the trail your hearts may begin to pound from the excitement of what awaits your every step and breath as you approach the fabled citadel. Just as you are to make your final turn and approach the trail entry, you’ll let out a sigh of relief to know the reward is only a few steps further. As you enter Intipunku you will get your first breathtaking view of Machu Picchu.
As you proceed down into Machu Picchu you will find rock structures or temples along the path, which the guide will point out as you make your way into the sacred city. As soon as you arrive your guide will explain the history and the myths that surround this archaeological wonder. Camp. (B / L / D)
Day 5: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco
We will wake early with different views not any more on the mountains now we will be on the Urubamba river side. After breakfast we will go once again to one of the sacred city of the Incas your guide will explain the history and the myths that surround this archaeological wonder from this corner of the world, you will have plenty of time in Machu Picchu to explore, or to hike up Huayna Picchu, giving you a total two days to enjoy this wonder of the world.
