Inca Trail To Machu Picchu 5 Days / 4 Nights

Itinerary

We depart Cusco at 5:00am in a private transport, which will drive us to km.82, the starting point of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We start our hike walking along the left shore of the Urubamba River. Following the trail along a flat terrain, we arrive in Miskay (2800m/9184ft), to then ascend and finally see, from the tallest part of an overlook, the Inca city of Llactapata (2750m/9020ft). From this point, we descend to the ruins, next to which we set our camp, after an approximated 3 hour walk. We spend the afternoon exploring and visiting this archaeological site. Meals L, D

1ST DAY 

  • Total distance:  5 km (3,11 miles)
  • Estimated time: 2,5-3 hours
  • Maximum altitude point: 2,650 m (8,692 ft)
  • Campsite altitude: 2,650 m (8,692 ft)

We wake up early to continue trekking along the valley created by the Kusichaca River, gradually climbing until we reach the farming community of Wayllabamba (3000m/9840ft). All along the way we see spectacular views of the Vilcanota mountain range on the opposite side of the Urubamba River, where the impressive Veronica peak reigns at 5832 meters above sea level. Not to mention the diversity of wild flora and fauna that can be found all along the valley. Continuing through the trail, we leave Wayllabamba behind to begin the most difficult part of the trek, which consists of an abrupt and steep ascent that stretches for 9 km and reaches the first mountain pass in the Inca Trail, the Abra Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman’s pass). We only climb half way up the pass, stopping at Llulluchapampa, where we camp and spend the night. Along the climb, the landscape changes from sierra to puna (a dry and high area with little vegetation), having the chance to spot domesticated llamas and alpacas grazing on ichu, one of the few plants that grow at that altitude. We also cross an area of the so called cloud forest, which is the habitat for many different kinds of birds like hummingbirds and sparrows and the Andean bear, which is also called the Spectacled Bear (Tremarctus Ornatus). We advise that on this day and the next one specially, your day-pack is well stocked with candies, chocolates and coca leaves that will keep your sugar level high, and help with altitude sickness. Meals B, L, D

2ND DAY

  • Total distance: 12 km (7,46 miles)
  • Estimated time: 5-6 hours
  • Maximum altitude point: 3,850 m (12,589 ft)
  • Campsite altitud: 3,850 m (12,589 ft)

After breakfast, we continue our hike up the highest point in the Inca Trail, reaching the mountain pass of Abra Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman’s Pass – 4200m/13776ft) after about 2 hours. Immediately after the pass, we descend into the Pacaymayo valley (3600m/11808ft), from which we then start to climb to the second pass, the Abra Runkurakay (3970m/13022ft). Half way up, we visit the archaeological complex with the same name. This site, located at 3800m/12464ft, consists of a small oval structure that is believed to have served the purpose of a watchtower. After going over the pass, we descend towards Yanacocha (Black Lagoon) and enter the cloud forest to finally arrive at Sayacmarca (3624m/11887ft). This is a beautiful complex made up of a semicircular construction, enclosures at different levels, narrow streets, liturgical fountains, patios and irrigation canals. Continuing up an easy climb, we arrive at the third pass, the Abra Phuyupatamarca (3700m/12136ft). Along this climb we can appreciate the magnitude of the Incas´ ancient craft, by walking along paths semi-detached from the mountain, and seeing rocks that fill up ravines in perfect order, saving the trail from the multileveled Andean geography. We go through an Inca tunnel to later arrive at the aforementioned pass and down to the complex of the same name. This is one of the most complete and best preserved archaeological complexes along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, and is located on the highest point of a mountain. Curiously, Phuyupatamarca means ¨town over the clouds¨. From above, one can observe a sophisticated sacred complex made up of water fountains with solid foundations, and also impressive views of the Urubamba River valley. We set our camp in Phuyupatamarca and spend the night there. Meals  B, L, D

3RD DAY 

  • Total distance: 15 km (9,32 miles)
  • Estimated time: 8 hours
  • Maximum altitude point: 4,200 m (13,776 ft)
  • Campsite altitude: 3,600 m (12,033 ft)

Today, we might have the chance to appreciate one of the most spectacular sunrises in the Inca Trail, provided the sky is clear, as Phuyupatamarca’s location offers awesome views at this moment of the day. We then start our way through the long descending stone steps which will lead us to Wiñaywayna (2650m/8692ft), where we find a campsite equipped with a restaurant, bar and bathrooms with hot showers. The campsite has the same name as the complex located only five minutes away from the lodge. Wiñaywayna is the biggest archaeological site in the Inca Trail besides Machupicchu and consists of an impressive complex made up of an agricultural center with numerous terraces, a religious sector and an urban sector, offering spectacular views over the already narrower Urubamba River valley. After our visit, we leave Wiñaywayna to climb to Intipunku, or The Sun Gate. This will take an hour of hiking along a trail of flat stones on the edges of cliffs in highland jungle. From this fabulous spot, we may enjoy spectacular views over the sacred citadel of Machupicchu, weather permitting. From Intipunku, a short walk brings us down to the entrance Machupicchu you decide if you want to visit Machu Picchu with your Tour guide or in the next day. From where we continue down to Aguas Calientes Town by Bus, where will pass the night in a Hotel 3***.

Option to visit in the fith Day Huayna Picchu Mountain.

4TH DAY

  • Total distance: 11 km (6,84 miles)
  • Estimated time: 5 hours
  • Maximum altitude point: 3,600 m (11,772 ft)
  • Campsite altitude: 2,400 m (7,872 ft)

We wake up early and board a bus, which will take us up to Machu Picchu where we begin a complete guided tour of the Inca citadel that will take approximately two hours. We will then have free time to walk around, climb up the Huayna Picchu Mountain, where one can experience spectacular views of all of Machu Picchu, the valleys and mountains that surround it (please note that there are only 400 visitors allowed per day), or we can visit the Temple of the Moon or the impressive Inca Bridge. In the afternoon, we meet in the town of Aguas Calientes where, if you like, you can visit and relax in its hot springs. From here we take the train back to the city of Cusco, where we arrive after nightfall.

Faqs

The Inca Trail is a 43km (26 mile) hike through mountainous regions. The maximum altitude reached is 4200m above sea level. On the second day of the trek we climb 1200m. Make no mistake, the Inca Trail is a fairly difficult trek and you should be well prepared and healthy prior to starting it. You have to be moderately fit and take regular exercise. Try walking 15km in a day or go to the gym in the months leading up to the trek. It is also important to be well acclimatized to the altitude. Try to spend 2 or 3 days in Cusco (3400m) prior to starting the trek. This time can be put to good use visiting the city of Cusco, nearby Inca ruins and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The good news is that virtually everyone in the last few years who started the trek finished it Only a handful had to turn back. (see tips on staying healthy on the trail below).

As far in advance as possible. The government has strictly limited the number of people permitted on the Inca Trail (permits are issued to about 200 trekkers per day plus 300 porters). We therefore recommend that you try to make your Inca trail reservation as far in advance as possible as soon as you know the dates of your international flights.

Travelers only need to bring their own personal supplies and a sleeping bag. If you do not have a sleeping bag, these can be rented in Cusco for a reasonable rate ($20 per all trips). A duffle bag will be provided for your belongings on the Inca trail so travelers do not need to bring a large backpack unless desired. Proper sun gear, comfortable trekking clothes, mosquito repellant, hiking shoes, a flashlight, a camera, and 1-2 refillable water bottles are recommended. Rain gear is also recommended during the wet season (December- March) and cold weather gear (warm jacket, thermals, hat and gloves) is recommended for the dry season (especially June- August).

Campsites are subject to change depending upon the crowds and the season. We generally try to camp in less trafficked areas so that travelers can enjoy the natural beauty of the Inca trail and minimize environmental impacts. Our typical campsite choices are Wayllabamba, Pacaymayo and Wiñay Wayna or Chaquicocha.

Our Adventure,Tour guide are among the very best and most experienced guides anywhere. They are from the surrounding Cusco/ Sacred Valley area and speak fluent English, in addition to Spanish and the native language of Quechua. Most have 10 years of experience leading Inca trail hikes and all have training in the history, spirituality, culture, and ecology of the area.

Our cooks can provide vegetarian meals no problem. Just let us know your dietary requirements when you book your trek.

A6: We have plenty of clients who have allergies to nuts, wheat, etc. Please give us details of your allergy at the time of booking. Please indicate the severity of the reaction and what type of medicines you have to take in an emergency. If your allergy is severe you must be accompanied by a friend on the trek who is aware of your allergy and the location of any required medicines. Due to the nature of the remote geographical location of the trail and the lack of suitable nearby medical facilities Terra Quchua Peru will not accept any responsibility, either directly or indirectly, for any problems due to your special medical/dietary requirements. We suggest that you to check with your doctor before booking the trek.

You must disclose at the time of booking any medical condition that you may have that could affect your ability to do the Inca Trail trek. Terra Quechua Peru hikers reserves the right not to accept a trek booking if we feel that a medical condition may put your life or the lives of any of our trekking staff or other clients at risk on the trek. People with heart conditions, knee problems, severe asthma or are more than 18 weeks pregnant should not participate in the trek. People with mild asthma / diabetes / pregnant less than 18 weeks will have to bring a medical note from their doctor stating that they are fit to undertake the trek. They will also be required to be accompanied by a trekking companion on the trek at all times who will trek at their sides and be familiar with any medicines required in case of an emergency. Terra Quechua Peru reserved the right to cancel the trek booking of a client if the client has not fully disclosed at the time of making a booking a medical condition that may pose a risk to the health of the client and/or other trekkers. No refunds will be given in this instance.

TERRA QUECHUA INFO: HOW IS DRINKING WATER SUPPLIED?

TERRA QUECHUA INFO: WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ON THE TREK?

We will buy your Inca Trail trek permit using the names & passport numbers that you send us with your trek booking application. You must bring these same passports with you to Cusco and take them on the Inca Trail. If the name or number in your passport is different from the name and number on the trek permit, the government authorities will not allow you to start the trek and you will not be entitled to a refund. If you plan to renew your passport between making the trek booking and actually starting the trek please see the section below about Frequently Asked Questions relating to passport numbers. If you make a trek booking at the student price you must send us a copy of your ISIC card at the time you pay the trek deposit. If you fail to bring your ISIC card on the trek the government authorities will not allow you to start the trek. You will not be given the opportunity to pay the extra difference in price and you will not be entitled to a refund. These are government regulations and apply to ALL licensed Inca Trail tour operators.

Unless you hire an extra ‘third of a porter’ you will need to carry all of the above personal items. We include porters to carry all the other items such as tents, food and cooking equipment.

Walking boots are recommended as they provide support to the ankle which reduces the risk of injury especially when trekking in the wet season (December – March). However it is important that your boots are comfortable and well worn-in and not brand new. Many people prefer to trek in tennis shoes but extra care should be taken. We do not recommend trekking in sandals or using new boots or hiring boots prior to the trek. Make sure the shoes are sturdy enough for the duration of the trek and will not fall apart.

We supply the sleeping tents, dining tents, tables, chairs, toilet tents, cooking equipment, water purifiers, sleeping mattress (the thermarest), and other camping equipment. Our outfitter purchases the highest quality equipment in Peru and older equipment is evaluated and replaced on a regular basis.

Many people like to hike with trekking poles or walking sticks. This is fine as long as the poles will not cause damage to the stone paving along the Inca Trail. If the trekking poles have metal spikes then these must be protected by rubber tips. We recommend bringing some spare rubber tips with you. Rubber protectors can also be bought in several shops in Cusco. Wooden walking sticks are obviously fine as long as you bring them with you from home. Recently government authorities have stopped trekkers using wooden sticks that could have come from local forests (to prevent deforestation of protected Andean forests). Metal trekking poles can also be hired in our office.

Any bags that you don’t need to take on the Inca trail can be left at your hotel in Cusco. Nearly all hotels have a luggage deposit and rarely charge for this service as long as you are returning to the hotel after the trek. You can also leave valuables in the hotel safe, but remember to bring your passport and some emergency money. We do not store clients luggage or valuables in our office.

Terra Quechua Peru is committed to looking after our porters and our trekking weights are carefully calculated so that our porters are not overloaded. The group sizes given below show the absolute minimum number of porters that we will provide for each group. As a professional company we will guarantee these numbers. Obviously we will use extra porters if any of our clients decide to hire the services of an extra third of a porter up until the maximum number of porters per group permitted by the government. This is why we limit each client to a maximum of just a third of a porter i.e. maximum 6kg.

Guides carry a first aid kit for basic medical problems (traveler’s diarrhea, cuts/ scrapes, etc.). They receive Red Cross First Aid and other emergency training every year. Our guides lead over 500 travelers along the Inca trail each year and we have rarely had a traveler unable to complete the hike. In these rare instances when someone has not felt well enough to finish the hike, he/ she has been escorted back to Cusco and generally felt well enough to re-join the group in Machu Picchu via train a few days later. Cusco has the nearest modern medical facilities so travelers with a serious medical emergency would need to be evacuated there. Guides and porters have pre-established evacuation strategies in place should this need occur.

A cook accompanies every group on the Inca trail. Almost invariably, travelers comment on the delicious menu. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and hearty snacks are provided for your hike. Meals are a mix of local specialties and international favorites. For a sample menu, check out our Inca Trail Menu below. Vegetarian meals are also available upon request. Other special dietary requests can usually be accommodated as well with sufficient notice.

Fünf -Tages-Trekking-Tour über Salkantay nach Machu Picchu Unser Trip, gebucht über Getyourguide, durchgeführt von Terra Quechua Peru, hat in fast allen Punkten unseren Erwartungen entsprochen. Von der Abholung am Hotel, die zwar deutlich eher als erwartet war bis zur Verabschiedung unseres Guides hat alles prima und reibungslos geklappt. Mir Renaldo und Asencio hatten wir zwei überaus liebenswerte Guides, die immer ansprechbar waren, die Bedürfnisse des Einzelnen berücksichtigt haben und dafür gesorgt haben, das alles reibungslos abgelaufen ist. Unser Koch Javier hat alles getan, damit zu jeder Mahlzeit verschiedene, abwechslungsreiche Gerichte auf den Tisch kamen und an unserem letzten gemeinsamen Frühstück sogar noch eine Torte gebacken. Das einzige, was wir nicht so machen konnten wie gebucht, war der Aufstieg auf den Machu Picchu Mountain. Terra Quechua Peru hatte uns den Aufstieg auf den Huayna Picchu gebucht, obwohl es im Vorfeld anders abgesprochen war. Daher ein Punkt Abzug. Trotzdem war auch die Aussicht von diesem Berg sensationell und abschließend bleibt zu sagen, wir würden Terra Quechua Peru jederzeit wieder buchen🙂

Excellent travel agency! We highly recommend it! Mr. Edwin did all the intermediation of our tours in both Cusco and Lima. Always attentive, responding quickly on Whatsapp, in addition to being clear about the information about each of the tours. The prices are fair and he works on the basis of trust, which helped us a lot during our stay. Its staff is punctual, helpful and lively, explaining in detail the main points and historical events. They are also bilingual (Spanish and English), making the experience even better. We highly recommend Terra Quechua Peru!

Highly reliable agency. The truth is we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service received by this agency. From the first moment we had contact, until the moment we boarded the plane back to Costa Rica, everything was in perfect harmony and control on their part, they always made us feel safe and confident in every move we would make. Not only are they worth recommending, but when we return, God first, they will be our first choice for the activities we will do. We are really very grateful to their entire work team, which is more than qualified for the activities they dedicate themselves to, and yet, giving more than what they offer. Blessings to each of you and we hope to meet again very soon.

Cusco & Machu Picchu: an unforgettable trip We contracted Cuzco city tour, excursion to Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu, Montaña de Colores and Laguna Humantay with this agency before traveling. The organization was impeccable and any problem that arose, Edwin resolved it immediately, always very attentive at any time. Super recommended. The places visited are spectacular, beautiful. They were all worth seeing. Combination of natural landscapes of great beauty, archaeological sites, culture, history, gastronomy.

e do the City tour Cusco, Sacred Valley. Machu Picchu and Coloured Mountain If you want to take your mind off everything and enjoy your trip, you can't miss the chance to choose these travel organisers to show you Peru. The guides are superb, they know the area perfectly and all the stories behind every corner, which makes every visit more magical. At all times they have been concerned about us and have shown great flexibility in terms of preferences. I am very grateful to have had this amazing experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Salkantay 5 days Very good experience! I did the 5-day Salkantay trek, domo by domo. As previously the height made me feel bad and after passing 4500 meters I started to feel bad, we looked for an alternative to be able to do the path but ignoring day 2 when we reach 5000 meters. Edwin helped me re-coordinate everything and also kept an eye on the departures. It was a little chaotic at the beginning because the day I had the meeting at the agency I had to go to the doctor to evaluate my lungs and that meant I didn't make it to the previous meeting, but Edwin still received me later at the agency and I help reorganize everything. The guides were 10,000! Edison and Brian, two young guides helped us all the way and were super attentive. It was fun. Edison incredible patience! The chef Gabriel made magic with his hands, the meals were incredible. I am not going to deny that when I paid online from Argentina I was a little afraid, but everything went super well and more than recommended! Then I hired them again for a day trip! Thank you Edison for all the support and Edwin for all the coordination.

Good agency for first timers in Peru This comment is for people like me who had more questions than answers when seeing the previous reviews of this post. I did an 8-day tour including Lima and Cusco with their main trekking and tourism attractions. In general, the agency fulfilled what was promised from the beginning and in general terms our trip went very well and we did not have any major setbacks. Additionally, the weather was very good throughout the week and that helped a lot. However, there are some things that no one tells you and some pros and cons of taking tours with Quechua terra. 1. In our case, the agency only coordinated and booked the tours with third parties who do offer the tours. There was never a presence of anyone from the agency on the tours, I only saw Edwin (manager) once during my entire stay and it was to cancel the entire tour. Apparently many agencies work like this in Cusco 2. By not having the presence of anyone from the agency, you depend on the subcontracted third party and the luck you have in terms of the guides. In our case everything went according to plan except for the colorful mountain guide who left us abandoned during the walk and we had to go to people around us because my partner suffered from an asthmatic attack. Additionally, he did not give any relevant historical explanation during the tour. 3. The agency's daily communication was reactive and not proactive. Personally, I had to write to them every night so they could give me the instructions from the other day. I felt that they were not very attentive to us, although every time the third parties were delayed or something like that, the agency always responded attentively to my calls. So much so that we finished the tour, left the country and to date we have not received even a goodbye or a thank you. 4. When you arrive in Cusco they literally give you an envelope with documents and reservations and you depend on yourself so that your itineraries and reservations are fulfilled, the agency does not intervene directly and again you depend on third parties. In our case we realized this and we had to rush our visit to Ollantaytambo (we hardly enjoyed it) to be able to take our trains to Machupichu, in this case the outsourced agency left us on our own in Ollantaytambo as if to say "from here on ahead they are alone.” 5. The city tour in Cusco and the sacred valley is done with a tourist ticket that is valid for 10 days, however the agency never tells you this and neither does it tell you that you have access to many other tourist attractions included in the ticket if You have free time in Cusco. We found out about this during the tours but it was too late and we couldn't take full advantage of it before leaving Cusco 6. Hotels and transportation are excellent, especially in Cusco and Lima respectively. We did not have time to plan the trip in its entirety, so this agency was a very good option for us, however I consider that for a second time it is better to plan the trip on your own, it is more enjoyable, without races and of course a lot cheaper since you deal directly with the companies that do the tours.
