Puma Marca Trek Machu Picchu

Puma Marca Trek Machu Picchu is one of the treks near Ollantaytambo site, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The old Inca trail to Ollantaytambo takes you to some of the most fabulous treks in the Andes. Even with the experience of a one day trek, it is incredibly  wonderful to have a small touch of how Andean people in ancient times were walked, ran, from Puma Marca site to Machu Picchu. Most of the time the Inca road is downhill, but if you have experience trekking, we can start from the lower dirt road and trek up for one hour, or we can start the trek from Pumamarca. The rest of the Inca trail is flat and downhill. In the afternoon or evening, we go by train to Aguas Calientes village, also known as Machu Picchu Pueblo (the original name of Aguas Calientes). The second day we experience  Machu Picchu, one of the new seven wonders of the World.

Day 1: Pumamarca Trek to Aguas Calientes Village

Puma Marca Trek Machu Picchu we start early in the morning we will pick you up from your hotel and then by tourist transport we go towards Pumamarca settlement (2 hour and 20 minutes of ride). Before we stop at Raqchi natural Inca lookout to observe the most astonishing view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas (a great place for pictures).  We also have a view of the Inca deposits of Andean grains. From Ollantaytambo we  follow a dirt road. Once at the beginning  of the trek, we hiked a smooth trail up towards the Pumamarca Incan side. This place was a fortress and a ritual place, the holy mountains of the Wakaywillka. After the tour with our professional Kondor guide, we start to descend to Ollantaytambo. The hike into the nature of the Andes  makes our walk more enjoyable. There are many Inca terrace systems for farming hidden in the bushes but some of them are visible. The vistas around there are spectacular, the last 30 minutes trek is near the Patacancha river. During the afternoon or evening, we board the train service to Aguas Calientes village (1 hour and 40 minutes of train ride).
