    Cusco - Pisac - Urubamba - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes

    (Pisac Traditional Market)

    After a one-hour drive, we will arrive at the first stop in the Sacred Valley, the town of Pisac, and its handicraft stores. If you want to know another area of the town, we recommend that you ask the guide, who will tell you how to get to the Mercado de la plaza or Mercado Tradicional de Pisac. It is located just a few meters from the stop and is definitely worth a visit.

    Pisac Inca Ruins

    The tour then visits the Pisac archaeological complex. The guide will provide you with some historical context and then you’ll be able to explore it on your own. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Cuzco tourist ticket–the guide will help you purchase one since it’s required to enter the archaeological zone.

    Tourist Ticket To Cuzco

    The ticket provides access to all the main tourist attractions in Cuzco. There are two types of tickets- partial and integral. Partial is valid for only 2 days, but it gives access to the places visited in the Sacred Valley. The integral ticket lasts 10 days and provides access to most of Cuzco’s tourist sites and surroundings.

    Fortress of Ollantaytambo

    The last stop of this spectacular journey through the Sacred Valley of the Incas is the Ollantaytambo fortress. This is one of the most significant archaeological complexes of the Inca empire and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

    Aguas Calientes

    For an hour and a half, you will ride on this iconic train while enjoying views of the snow-capped mountains in the Vilcanota River valley. A small snack is provided for your enjoyment. Upon arrival at Aguas Calientes, someone will be waiting for you to escort you to your accommodation where they’ll tell you precisely what time to get picked up tomorrow. You’ll then have free time for dinner in the village and to rest before bedding down for the night.

    Machu Picchu Back to Cusco

    You have the option of taking the Expedition Train Service (Standard) or the Vistadome Train Service (Upgrade). The Vistadome train service offers you panoramic views of the valley that surrounds Machu Picchu and it also includes a live show and snacks on board. The cost of the train is seasonal depending on the month booked and the time slot chosen to travel.

    Both train rides to Machu Picchu are approximately 4 hours long if departing from Poroy Station or 2 hours if departing from Ollantaytambo Station. Book your train tickets in advance for preferred seating and time availability as they do sell out fast.


    How Many Days Do You Need in Order to Hike In Peru

    The Classic Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is one of the most popular combined routes. Each route varies in length from one to fourteen days, depending on the demand and availability of lodging along the way. All four journeys are one-way trips. You will generally travel back to Cusco using a combination of public and private transportation, depending on which tour company you use to make your trip reservations.

    The One-Day Inca Trail Hike (1-day trek)

    You can see Machu Picchu in one day if you’re short on time (but be prepared to wake up early!). You’ll take the train from Cusco to Kilometer 104, which is a location on the trail. Then, you’ll hike around 15 kilometers (9 miles) through the Sun Gate until you reach the Machu Picchu sanctuary. This option is great if you want to view Machu Picchu and experience a small section of the Inca Trail trek all at once.

    The Lares Trek (3-day trek)

    The Lares Trek, also known as the cultural alternative to the Inca Trail, is a three-day journey into the historical weaver communities on the eastern slopes of Machu Picchu. But don’t expect it to be a trip to the museum.

    To glimpse into time-honored villages, you must earn access by obtaining passes that soar to over 15,000 feet and zigzag across Pumahuanca’s peak. On day four of your Lares trek, you may add another stop at Machu Picchu ruins.

    Vilcabamba Traverse Route (1 – 2 week trek)

    The trek to Machu Picchu is not for the faint of heart. At 65 kilometers long, this is regarded as one of the most difficult ways to see Machu Picchu. The route starts in Cachora and winds a mile-deep canyon to Choquequirao, or “Cradle of Gold.” The Vilcabamba Trail follows the same route that Hiram Bingham took when he rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911, albeit via more isolated towns.

    The Salkantay Route (1 – 2 week trek)

    The Salkantay Trek is the only Inca Trail option that lets you sleep in a comfy bed and take a hot shower at the end of every day’s hike! Though it still requires reasonably fit participants, The Lodge Trek runs along the Salkantay Trail through the Cordillera Vilcabamba mountain range but permits nightly rest at fully serviced lodges placed along the route. Machu Picchu is reached by following the trail to an elevation of 15,000 feet.

    The Classic Inca Trail Route (3 – 5 day trek)

    The Classic Inca Trail Hike is the most popular trek of the four alternatives described in this piece. It begins at kilometer 82 along the route, at the village of Piscacucho. The first day is a moderate hike through the Andean foothills, crossing the Urubamba River and arriving at your campsite in Huayllabamba. On the second day, you’ll ascend what’s known as “Dead Woman’s Pass,” which is the highest point of the Inca Trail Elevation at 4200 meters (13,776 feet). After that, it’s all downhill to the Pacaymayo River campsite.


    Touring in Peru is perfect for those who want a light/moderate/challenging adventure and like to explore new things. Travelers should be in good shape since you’ll be hiking for long periods of time, Hiking unstable ground, and going upstairs without any handrails. Make the most of your Inca Trail Trips in Peru or other Machu Picchu Tours by Train


    It is suggested to have trip preparation at least 2 months in advance with activities that help strengthen the muscles of the legs with a good technique to hold your breath as this tour generally covers heights over 11,000 feet above the mountains in very rough terrain and very low temperatures as well as very high temperatures.

    During the Cusco Day Tours, you will explore various areas including Salt Mines, This is trip preparation for the extended Hiking Tour to Machu Pichu.

    The walks will be moderately difficult with options for more strenuous hikes. You’ll also get to meet Local People along the way.

    Cusco City

    Cusco is located at a high altitude of 11,200 feet. The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu are lower, at 9,200 and 8,000 feet respectively.

    How To Book Inca Trail Hike

Your reservation will only be confirmed when we have your entrance ticket in our hands.

    If your passport number changes after you book, you must tell us immediately or you may lose your booking! If the name or number on your passport is different from the name or number on your Inca Trail permit, you will not be allowed to start the trek and you will not be entitled to a refund.
