Itinerary

THE SMASHING SHORT INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU 2 DAY / 1 NIGHT!

DAY 1: CUSCO – KM 104 – AGUAS CALIENTES

Firstly, we depart from your hotel in Cusco to start the fantastic Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We will travel by bus to the town of Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley. Secondly, a train will take us roughly an hour down the valley to our starting point of hiking Machu Picchu. Our journey begins at the banks of the Urubamba River. Subsequently, it slowly ascends to meet up with the original Inca Trail hike at the site of Wiñay Wayna. Before continuing to the Sun Gate and on to Machu Picchu citadel.

So, along the way, we will pass through a dense cloud forest with its wide variety of plants, flowers, birds. And if we are lucky, some of the local mammals such as Viscachas (rabbit-like Chinchillas) or the rare Spectacled Bear. We will have the best scenery to see the most impressive of Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

Consequently, after a full day of trekking, we will arrive at the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) in the late afternoon. Meanwhile, we will have our first views of Machu Picchu stretched over the mountain ridge below. The lighting at this hour of the day makes for amazing pictures. After that, descending from the Sun Gate Machu Picchu, we continue along the beautiful paved stone path to hike Machu Picchu. But only to the famous “look-out point” above the central part of the citadel. Subsequently, from here we will descend to the town of Aguas Calientes in the valley below for hotel check-in and dinner.
