Cusco - KM 104 -
Wiñaywayna - Machu Picchu
Archaeological, cultural, ecological, hiking.
This trip is a terrific option for those who want to experience the beauty and wonder of arriving to Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail, but have less time or physical ability to do a more extended trek. On our first day we take a lovely hike to the archaeological complex of Wiñay Wayna, and then follow the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. After spending the night in Aguas Calientes, we have the entire second day to explore Machu Picchu.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the popularity of the Inca Trail we recomend that you book as far in advance as possible in order to secure a place. There are only a limited number of permits issued per day for the trail. We do of course have many other exciting treks to should you be too late to secure a permit.
UPDATE INFORMATION: Inca Trail permits for trek departures from March until January 2014 will go on sale as from the 09 January.
We would definitely recommend any of these treks below
4 Days Lares Valley trek to Machupicchu : Available
/ 5 Days Salkantay trek to Machupicchu : Available
Whether you want to visit Machu Picchu, hike one of the many trails or simply appreciate the beauty and history of Peru from the comfort of a coach; booking with Pap Adventures to guarantee a safe, fun, experience of a lifetime. Let us be your guides for your adventure in paradise. I recommend you to book it ASAP in order to get the Machupicchu entrance fees and train ticket which are very important on both hikes.
After an early transfer from your hotel a spectacular train ride takes us to KM104 and the start of our trail. We start by visiting the Chachabamba archaeological complex before three hours walk uphill to Wiñay Wayna another beautiful archaeological complex. We will have lunch here before walking a further hour to the Sun Gate where we will have our first spectacular view of Machu Picchu. From here it is just 30 mins more until we are among the ruins of Machu Picchu and we then take a 30 mins bus ride bus down to the town Aguas Calientes where we will stay the night in a hotel.
After an early breakfast, we take the bus up to Machu Picchu, arriving well before the majority of tourists. You will have a guided tour of the site for two hours before having a bit of free time and making your way back on the bus to Aguas Calientes in time for some lunch before boarding the afternoon train back to Cusco.
