The experience begins in the morning around 04:30 am from the hotel to continue in our transport to Ollantaytambo where we will have a space to rest and to buy the last thing we need. Then, we continue to Km 82 (Piscacucho), where the first checkpoint of the Inca Trail is located to begin the trek. It is important to carry the original passport, as we will need it to enter the Inca Trail along with the rest of the documentation provided by the agency.

After a period of indications we begin with the experience where we will have a simple start as a warm-up to reach Patallacta, which is an ancient Inca checkpoint for the approach to Machu Picchu. From there, we walk another 2 hours to our lunch spot where we will also rest for a while and finally continue walking for another 2 hours until we reach the first night camp, located in Ayapata (3300 masl – 10 826 ft). We will arrive at the camp around 17:00 pm where we can settle in comfortably and relax with a hot drink and a snack with the team of porters, chef and guide. In the evening around 19:30 pm we will enjoy our dinner and then we can rest and recharge our batteries.

We begin the trek again now with an ascent of approximately 4 hours to the Warmiwañusca pass, which is the highest point of the trek (4215 masl – 13,829 feet). Upon arrival, we will take a short break to enjoy the views and take the best pictures. Then we proceed to descend by a stepped path to a mysterious valley that leads us to the Pacaymayo checkpoint where our team is already waiting for us to have lunch and rest.

When we are satisfied and adequately rested we start our ascent again, this time to a small Inca site called Runcuracay where we can see 2 very impressive waterfalls. Finally we continue our journey to reach our next campsite, the Chaquicocha sector (3600 masl -11 811 ft) where the team is waiting for us.
