Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Inca Trail, Cusco, Cusco Region

Day 1 ARRIVE TO CUZCO
Upon your arrive in Cusco, a representative of Valencia Travel Cusco will be waiting for you. We will pick you up in our private transportation and take you to your hotel. Here you will join your guide for a short briefing about the wonderful tour that awaits you. Today begins with a guided tour of the impressive Koricancha temple and enjoy the sights, the capital of the Incas. You can enjoy the indigenous and colonial heritage then spend the remainder of the day at leisure “by exploring Cusco’s nightlife or sampling some of its many typical restaurants.
Overnight at: Depending on room availability we will provide one the below hotels.
Option 1: Palacio del Inka, A Luxury Collection Hotel
Option 2: Hotel Aranwa Cusco Boutique
OPTIONAL: Today we will enjoy a guided tour for about 2 hours and visit one of the most important Inca temples located in the center of Cusco city.
KORICANCHA: The famous Sun Temple of Cusco was and is in practice a synthesis of the Incan organization, architecture and religion. Koricancha means "Courtyard of the gold" in Quechua. It possibly represented the Navel of the World in the pre-Hispanic Andean Cosmovision. In the center of the courtyard is a structure, which was once covered with 55 kilograms of gold, and along the sides of the courtyard are small Inca rooms whose smooth gray stones and sharp angles are a stark contrast to the rounded arches and Spanish architecture that surround them
Day 2 OPEN DAY FOR LEISURE
OPTIONAL: FULL DAY SACRED VALLEY TOUR (FOR AN EXTRA COST)
After breakfast, we will pick you up from your hotel at 8:00am. This is a full day excursion to the Urubamba Valley visiting the colorful Indian market in Pisac where you will be able to appreciate the mixture of color and tradition and have an opportunity to test your bartering skills, interact with the local craftsmen and purchase their hand-made souvenirs. Pisac is located at the entrance of the Sacred Valley. The Valley is (31km)/ (19mi) from Cusco, and at an altitude of (2,970m)/ (9,700 ft.). Followed by Pisac is Urubamba where we will have a lunch break to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch (not included) then we continue through to Ollantaytambo, the oldest continuously occupied town on the American continent. The narrow streets of Ollantaytambo, along with their canals, have not changed much from the time of the Inca Empire. They evoke their ancestral inheritance and give you a feeling of what it would be like to live during this time. The last visit will be the Chinchero market. Chinchero is believed to be the mythical birthplace of the rainbow. Its major claim to tourism is its colorful Sunday market which is much less tourist-orientated than the market at Pisac. At the end, we will return you to the Plaza de Armas in Cusco at approximately 6:30 pm.
P.S: Tonight we will have the Inca trail briefing at 7:00pm at the hotel lobby.
Overnight at: Depending on room availability we will provide one the below hotels.
Option 1: Palacio del Inka, A Luxury Collection Hotel
Option 2: Hotel Aranwa Cusco Boutique
Day 3 THE INCA TRAIL ADVENTURE TO MACHU PICCHU BEGINS
Total distance to be covered: 12km or 7mi. (5 to 6 hours more or less).
We will meet and pick you up from your Hotel at 5:00am (time to be confirmed at the briefing time) and travel by bus to Piskacucho (you will hear this be called kilometer 82) where the trail starts. There will be a breakfast stop in Ollantaytambo (06:30-7am) to load up on energy (breakfast – not included). On arrival at kilometer 82 (08:30am more or less), we will have some time to organize ourselves (use the restrooms, put on sun cream, mosquitoes repellant, etc) and then it is necessary to show your entrance tickets, passports and (if paying a student rate) the student card at the trails 1st control point. To start the Inca Trail Trek (2720m/8923ft), we cross the Vilcanota River and follow its route to the right.
The first day is relatively easy (a warm-up on the ‘Inca flat’ terrain) and we will have great views of the site of an Inca Fortress (‘Huillca Raccay’), the vast and incredible Inca site ‘Llactapata’ (officially called ‘Patallacta’), the Urubamba mountain range that divides the jungle and the Andes and the beautiful snow-capped peak of ‘W’akay Willca’ (5860m/19225ft), known in books as Veronica. Our first campsite (Ayapata) will be one hour and a half up the small village of Wayllabamba (3000m/9842ft) in the temperate green valley of the same name. Temperature at night is usually around 5ºC (depending on the month).
Day 4 THE TRAIL TRIAL! WE GO OVER 2 PASSES....
Total distance to be covered: 16km or 9mi. (8 to 9 hours more or less).
After waking up at 5:30am (maybe at 05:00-depending on your Guide) and having breakfast, we will start a steep ascent towards the highest pass (Abra de Warrmihuañusca/’Dead Woman’s Pass’ – 4200m/13779ft). On this day, a real sense of achievement is felt on reaching the top! After a rest here, we begin the descent to the lunch stop, which is located at Pacaymayu (3550m/11646ft). On the way up to the pass, we will be able to see lots of hummingbirds and other birds.
Also we will have the time to appreciate an incredible variety of native plants and trees such as the ´Polylepis´ or Q’ueuña trees which grow in the astonishing cloud forest located at 3650/11972m!! After lunch begins the second 2 hours steep climbing to Runkuraqay pass (almost 4000 meters), we arrive in our campsite by 5 pm. Temperature at this campsite around 4ºC during the nights.
Day 5 BACK IN THE PAST! BEAUTIFUL SCENERY!
Total distance to be covered: 10km or 6mi. (5 hours more or less).
This is the most impressive day (in our opinion!!!) so just keep thinking of that on the ascent on day 2! Again we wake up for breakfast at 6am, and start the day with a gentle climb to visit the archaeological site of ‘Phuyupatamarca’(meaning ‘Town in the Clouds’) and to reach the third highest point on the trail (3680m)). The views from here of the mountains, canyons and surrounding area are spectacular.
The Inca site, ‘Phuyupatamarca’, is located a few minutes walk from the third pass and after visiting this, we continue walking (3000 steps!) through the cloud forest and the impressive agricultural Inca site of ‘Intipata’ until we arrive at our third campsite Wiñay Wayna (2680m/8792ft). Today we have only walked about 4 to 5 hours and have arrived to camp by lunch time! A short distance from this campsite is located the Inca site of the same name ‘Wiñay Wayna’ (‘Forever Young’). Even if you are tired after your day’s trek, don’t miss out on visiting the most impressive site on the trail. Temperature during the night is around 12º C.
Day 6 MACHU PICCHU IN ITS GLORY!
Total distance to be covered: 5km or 3mi. (2 hours more or less).
We leave the last campsite at about 4:30am on the final day (breakfast 3:30-4:00am). It is an early start in order to get to ‘Inti Punku’ (‘Sun gate’) (2730m/8792ft) before sunrise. This is the place from where you will have your first dramatic view of Machu Picchu (2400m/7873ft) with the sun rising over it! After some time there, we will walk down the last part of the trail to the spot where you can take the classic photo (picture postcard shot) of this ancient city with the T-shirt provided which has the Inca trail logo and the “I DID THE INCA TRAIL TO MACHUPICCHU” phrase.
Finally, we visit Machu Picchu itself with a walking tour, (approximately 2 hours) which is given by your guide, and after this you can explore the mysterious city by yourselves. Later we will take we will take the bus down to Aguas Calientes for lunch (Not Included). Then we will board the train back to Poroy train station where we will be waiting for you and take you back to your hotel.
