This 2-day Inca trail is used by those who don`t want to endure the whole hike. It starts at Km 104, where a footbridge gives access to the ruins of Chachabamba, and the trail ascends to the main track at Wiñay-Wayna. Halfway up is a good view of the ruins of Choquesuysuy.
The Short Inca Trail hike is used by those who don`t want to endure the classic Inca Trail. The one-day Inca trail to Machu Picchu starts at Km 104, where a footbridge gives access to the ruins of Chachabamba, and the trail ascends to the main track at Wiñay-Wayna. Halfway up is a good view of the ruins of Choquesuysuy. The first part is a steady, continuous three-hour ascent (take water), and the trail is narrow and exposed in parts. About 15 minutes before, Wiñay-Wayna is a waterfall. From Wiñaywayna, the one-day Inca Trail hike contours around through the cliff-hanging cloud forest and is very thin in places, so watch your step. It takes about two hours to reach Intipunku, or “gate of the sun,” the penultimate site on the trail. You`ll get your first view of Machu Picchu ruins from here. The descent from Intipunku to Machu Picchu takes almost an hour. Backpacks are not allowed into the ruins, and immediately upon arrival, park guards ask you to check your back at the lower entrance gate. Hikers spend the night in a hotel in Aguas Calientes and have an unforgettable dinner. On the second day, the Machu Picchu sunrise will bring you joy. The Mountains surround the Inca Trail, and the original dense vegetation is an unusual ecological variety. Welcome to the 1-day Inca Trail hike from km 104 to Machu Picchu!
