Sacred Valley Trek to Machu Picchu 2D/1N

Itinerary

*Note: You will have a guide during the trek and on the Machu Picchu tour. However, during your bus and train transfers you will not be accompanied by a guide.

Pre-Departure Briefing: There is a mandatory pre-departure briefing at our Cuzco office one day prior to departure. You will receive detailed information on your excursion, a list of what to bring and confirm your departure details.

 

Day by Day Itinerary:

Day 1: Cuzco - Chinchero (3,600m) - Piuray passage (4,100m) - Huchuy Qosqo ruins (3,600m) - Lamay (2,900m) - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes  (L/D)

Today you will be picked up from your accommodation between 5:30 and 6:00 am for a 1-hour drive to the community of Lago Piuray, close to the town of Chinchero. Here we will begin our adventure at 3600m. The trek begins with a 3-hour walk uphill until arrival at Piuray passage (4100m), where you will be awarded with a beautiful panoramic view of the Urubamba mountain range and small lagoons.

Our adventure continues with a 2-hour downhill journey towards the Huchuy Qosqo ruins. Enjoy a guided tour of this beautiful Inca city nestled in the Sacred Valley. At the end of our visit we will have some time to enjoy a box lunch. Then, with a steep 2-hour downhill walk we’ll make our way to the town of Lamay, where our transport service will pick us up and drive us to Ollantaytambo. Enjoy a hearty dinner before boarding the train to Aguas Calientes, where we will stay the night. A guide will be waiting at the train station to take you to your hotel and give you the instructions for the next day.

Note: Alternatively the dinner can take place at Aguas Calientes (depending on the train schedule).

Inclusions: Accommodation pick-up, Van Cuzco - Chinchero, Van Lamay - Ollantaytambo, Train Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes, 1N Aguas Calientes 3* Hotel, Meals 1L/1D. (15km, 7hrs)

 

Day 2: Explore Machu Picchu & Return to Cuzco  (B)

Get an early start and take one of the first buses (5:30am) to reach the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu (25-min ride), where you will enjoy a 2-hour guided tour visiting all the corners of this gorgeous site. Enjoy some free time to take in the unforgettable scenery and snap some incredible photos. Take the bus back to Aguas Calientes, followed by the train to Ollantaytambo and the bus to central Cuzco late in the day. Please make your own way back to your accommodation.

Inclusions: Round trip Bus Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu, Train Aguas Calientes - Ollantaytambo, Bus Ollantaytambo - Cuzco, 2-Hour Machu Picchu Guided Visit, Meal 1B.

 

Physical Requirements: This hike is Moderate - The uphill portions require moderate to good physical condition and are most difficult as we reach the high pass at 4000m. After crossing the high pass, there is a steep descent (approx. 4 hours), during which we recommend using trekking poles for stability and to reduce strain on the knees. 

Please note:

** Travellers who booked their trip using one passport, then renewed or replaced it afterward, must carry the old passport they used to make the booking or a photocopy with them on the trip.
