We start from Cusco at 4:00 am by Van to Ollantaytambo train station, then we will pass by train following the river. At KM 104 we start our 2 Day Inca Trail Hike. First we have to check our passports and documentation so we can get into the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. Then we hike a few minutes to the first Inca site called Chachabamba (like the song Bamba Bamba). After 3 hours of trekking we reach Wiñaywayna, the second Inca site (between Chachabamba and Wiñaywayna is a sunny area so bring a good sunblock, hat, and plenty of water), but sometimes is cloudy “let´s be ready for a great day hike exploring Inca Trail along Machu Picchu expedition”.
From Wiñaywayna we enter the Classic Inca trail route where the hikers of 4 day trek are camping. Then the last part of hike is a 2 hour trek to reach Machu Picchu site. The trail travels through beautiful green landscapes, so at times it’s like walking in a garden. Once we get to Machu Picchu we have time to take a lot of pictures from the guard house which is the best location in all the area to get a panoramic overview of Machu Picchu. We then board the touristic bus to Machu Picchu town which is also called Aguas Calientes village because there are hot spring pools. At Aguas Calientes you will spend the night and the next day we will go back to visit Machu Picchu, explore it, and have a walking guided tour, followed by leisure time by yourself in Machu Picchu.
