Day 1 : (bring passport) We pick you up from your hotel at 7am and go through the sacred valley by chinchero. We pass through urubamba and ollantaytambo and arrive at km 82- chilca- to start the walk. This day we do a light walk for more or less 4 hours. After lunch we will walk along one side of the urubamba river and where we will see the ruins of llaqtapata before arriving at the camp of wayllabamba where dinner will be.It is not a difficult trek. Don’t worry by happy!!!

Day 2 : we get up early this day and start walking so as to climb up to 4200 meters to the `dead womans pass`and pass through incredible landscape. This day is difficult and the hike is about 8 hours. It allows us to see the great valley and mountains.

Day 3 : we hike through to runkuraq. There we visit the archaological sites of sayacmarca and puyupatamarca. We arrive at winayhuayna late in the afternoon. Winayhuayna is the place the 2 day inca trail pax also passes through and leads the way to the great city of the incas, machupicchu.  

Day 4 : this morning we leave at approx 4 am with our flash lights so as to be at the sun gate (intipunku) in time to watch the sun rise over the mystical machupicchu. Then there is a guided tour of machupicchu for about 2-3 hours. Free time! No problem!you can catch the train to cusco this day or just spend one night in aguas-calientes, and catch the train on the 5th day. This gives you more time in machupicchu and time to visit the hot springs. (highly recommended).in case the client decides to cancel there is no refund for it is sharable in the group.
