Itinerary

We pick you up early from your stay in Cusco, Urubamba, or Ollantaytambo (depending on where you stay, pick-up time will be confirmed at your briefing). Today's hike is a good warm-up. We'll pass an old Inca site and walk for about 6 to 7 hours to our camp at Ayapata. Here you can chill, have a hot drink, and rest up for the night. Walk: 14 km (8.7 miles), 6-7 hours Camp height: 3300 meters Feel of the day: A moderate start Weather: Likely warm
This is our big day. We wake up early and hike up to Dead Woman's Pass, the highest spot on the trail. After enjoying the view, we go down and back up to the second pass, seeing more ruins on the way. We camp at Chaquiccocha and if you're up for it, we can look at the stars before bed. Walk: 16 km (9.94 miles), 7-8 hours Camp height: 3600 meters Feel of the day: The toughest, but rewarding Weather: Could be cold and rainy
We start early again and enjoy the most beautiful day of the hike. We'll be walking through the jungle part of the trail called the Cloud Forest. We'll see great views before heading down to our last campsite near Wiñay Wayna. There's another cool Inca site here to check out after lunch. Walk: 10 km (6.2 miles), 5 hours Camp height: 2600 meters Feel of the day: Easier going down Weather: Warm and humid
We get up super early to walk to Machu Picchu by sunrise. It's amazing! After we get there, we have a tour and then head down to Aguas Calientes. We'll have lunch together if you like (not included), and then take the train at 2.55 PM and bus back to Cusco. We recommend departing from Cusco after 8 PM. Morning walk to Machu Picchu Feel of the day: Exciting finish! Weather: Hot, bring water
