SACRED VALLEY TOUR PERU
The sacred Valley Tour begins at 8:00 am. We will pick you up from your hotel lobby in our private transportation and begin the tour. The Sacred Valley of the Incas was one of the main production points for the richness of Inca lands and is the place where the best grain of maize is produced in all of Peru.
You’ll pass different communities until you reach the Awanakancha stop. There will be an exposition of llamas, alpacas, and vicunas in their natural habitat. Afterward, you’ll head over to the Archaeological Center of Pisaq.
PISAQ INCA TOWN
Pisaq is composed of Inca terraces and Inca architectural structures scattered on slopes. We will pass by the Pisaq Artisan market where barter is still practiced today. You’ll also visit Pisaq’s main plaza where they sell handmade handicrafts such as woven textiles, jewelry, musical instruments, souvenirs, and much more.
After exploring Pisaq, a one-hour drive in your private transportation will take you to the town of Urubamba where you will have a buffet-style lunch of Andean food. We will then continue our tour to the fortress and citadel of Ollantaytambo where Inca architecture and design are conserved and declared as a cultural patrimony of Peru.
We will immerse in countless stories and the history of Inca times. Our last stop will be in one of the renowned oldest towns called Chincheros. This small town is known as the city of Rainbow.
It is purely an Inca city that the conquistadors wanted to “civilize” to establish their culture, but never fully achieved to do so. In Chincheros, the past persists stubbornly as if the spirit of an Ancient culture clings and refuses to disappear. You’ll observe firsthand how native people to this day continue to dye their textiles like their Inca ancestors.
After various pictures and a wealth of new knowledge, you will head back to Cusco and be dropped off at your hotel around 6:30 pm. This concludes your tour.

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.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR PERU TRIP?
Hiking 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.
It is suggested to have hiking 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 cover heights over 14,000 feet above the mountains in very rough terrain and very low temperatures as well as very high temperatures.
During the Sacred Valley Tour, you will explore various areas including Chinchero, This is a trip preparation for the extended Hiking Tour to Machu Pichu. (acclimatization)
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.

INCA TRAIL HIKING TOUR FAQs
Best time to visit Cusco Peru
If you are in a rush and don’t have time to read on, we think the best time to visit the beautiful Cusco is late April or May once the dry season has started – the mountains are still lush and green, but the days are sunny and not too cold – April and May are some of my favorite times of the year in Cusco.
What is special about Cusco, Peru?
Being the capital city of the Incas, Cusco is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is located at 3400m /11155 feet When walking its streets, will be impossible not to appreciate the hand-made stone walls that decorate the city.
What is the weather like in Cusco Peru?
The climate in Cusco Peru is determined by the dry season and the wet season. As the name implies, the dry season in the Andes experiences the lowest average rainfall during the year. This is what makes it peak tourism season. Less rain makes it easier to travel in the mountains, both by vehicle and on foot.
When does the rainy season in Cusco begin?
Regularly, the rainy season in Cusco Peru starts in October and goes until March. January and February are when heavy rains hit the most, interrupting the transportation system. When heavy rains occur, it makes quite difficult to access some sites in the Sacred Valley because of damage to the roads. This is why going with a reputable local travel operator like Apus Peru can make your rainy-season travel easier and safer.
Depending on the date, international and local holidays as well as festivals may result in a surcharge. All prices are subject to change and will be quoted in U.S. dollars. For more information, please consult the terms and conditions for this trip.”
This Hiking Tour is available year-round. Please note the Inca Trail is closed in February.
SHORT INCA TRAIL 2 DAY WITH HOTEL
This itinerary is rated moderate hike. The trek starts at 2100m (KM 104) and climbs to 2700m (Wiñay Wayna) before descending to 2400m (Machu Picchu). Since the trek is carried out at a much lower altitude than the Short 2 day Inca Trail trek you do not need to worry about acclimatization.
