This hike takes more time to do the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, leaving more time to appreciate the nature and archaeology along the way. We spend one long fourth day visiting Winaywayna and Machu Picchu, and on the fifth day return to Machu Picchu to see the sunrise from the Sun´s Gate. We encounter valleys that contain wildlife endemic to high deserts or the tropics, between stretches of puna and cloud forest. We encounter mysterious archaeological sites half covered by jungle overgrowth, which look like you are discovering them for the first time. Machu Picchu is one of the world´s greatest cultural treasures, and of these is the most enigmatic.
Included: Bus service until km 88, entrance ticket to the Inca trail, professional English and Spanish speaking guide, tents, bath tent, cook tent, carriers, extra porters for your personal items, breakfasts, lunches and dinners (as explained below), complete Machu Picchu's ruins tour, train ticket back to Cusco.

*Reservations need to be done two months prior to arrive to Cusco.
Nevertheless take note there is a limit of visitors per day so I suggest you to book the trip as soon as possible to guarantee your spots.
*Remember to take your passport and your isic card on the inca trail because without they you are not going to be able to do the hiking and take only the necessary items for the 4/3 days trek, the rest of your luggages you can leave it at your hotel in Cusco (most of hotels and hostals has an storage where to keep until your return)
Participants need to be in good physical health and condition to be able to enjoy the Inka Trail. The trekking will be difficult if you have not exercised regularly before your trip. To fully enjoy an Inka Trail adventure, we advise passengers to get into an exercise program for their own safety and enjoyment.
