Leaving Cuzco early in the morning, we proceed to the ruined temples of Sacsaywaman for a fascinating tour of the archeological site. After this visit we will continue to to Chincheros, a small Quechua-speaking village in the Sacred Valley. Here we will see a traditional weaving demonstration that has been unchanged for a thousand years, and explore their beautiful archaeological ruins. From Chincheros we will drive to a viewpoint for a picnic lunch, and then on to Quillarumiyoc (the Temple of the Moon). We will start our trek from here, heading by foot to Zurite where we have a picturesque stay in a colonial house. Tonight we will enjoy a traditional dinner and get a taste of the local village lifestyle. Approximate walking distance: 8km Estimated time: 4hrs Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 3 Amaruwatana

After a hearty breakfast we leave Zurite and head towards Amaruwatana camp. The walk will take us through Qenteqentiyoc (the Hummingbird Temple), where we will visit and admire this archaeological Inca site. We will then follow the old Inca Trail all the way to the top of our first pass at 4,400m, where we will have a dramatic view of both the Vilcabamba and Vilcanota mountain ranges. From here we start walking down, stopping for lunch en route and then continue to our first camp in the Sambor Valley where we will spend the night at approximately 4,200m.

After lunch we will continue trekking downhill following the ancient trail, which leads us to our campsite in a community called Ancascocha. Approximate walking distance: 10km Estimated time: 6-7hrs Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 5 Ollantaytambo

After crossing many little bridges we will reach the community of Camicancha, where we stop at a magnificent volcanic viewpoint looking towards the snow-capped Mt. Veronica. From here, it is only a short trek to the community of Chilca, where our trail ends. We'll be picked up by our vehicle and head to Ollantaytambo, taking a well-earned shower and rest at our hotel.
