Commence with enjoying an early breakfast, or take a boxed breakfast for the road. Our representative will collect you to board your private transportation. The journey will take approximately 2 hours; we will arrive at the destination of Ollantaytambo (2792 mts/9160.1 ft) where you will embark the train in order to reach Km 104 which is where our trek will begin.

As we arrive in Km 104 (2170 mts/7119.4 ft) our expert guide will make you feel welcome and provide a short story about the trail that you are about to embark on. A pair of walking sticks will be available to you if you have required them in advance.
Our primary stop will be Chachabamba Archaeological site (2178 mts/7145.7 ft) where we will explore the premises and have our guide explain to us the location. After visiting Chachabamba, we will walk for a further 3 hours in order to arrive at the Wiñaywayna archaeological site (2650 mts/8694.2 ft). As we finally reach the site of Wiñaywayna, we’ll enjoy a wonderful picnic served with refreshing beverages to regain our energy. Continuing taking the steep stairs, for about 1.5 hours, we will arrive at the Sun’s Gate, “Intipunku” (2750 mts/9022.3 ft). The hike will most definitely be worth it, as we admire the views Machu Picchu and the surrounding valley from afar. Initiating the hike downhill for another hour, we will soon arrive at our selected destination of Machu Picchu (2430 mts/7972.4 ft).

At last, the main spectacle of the trip has arrived, the marvelous Machu Picchu (2430 mts/7972.4 ft). Our guide will explain in depth its remarkable history as you marvel as the construction of the Incas. Enjoy walking around this amazing structure before you have to embark on your bus back down to Aguas Calientes. The ride will take approximately 30 minutes, where you will have some time to explore the beauty this town has to offer. At the end of the expedition, we will board the train in order to return to the train station of Poroy.
