An early start today, as you head over to Ollytaytambo and the Sacred Valley. After a short time exploring, you'll join your guide for a short and scenic train ride, through the mountains to the Chachabamba - otherwise known as the cloud forest. It's here that you'll start your hike along an ancient Inca Trail, which will give you your first glimpse of the lost city. After lunch, you'll head through the sungate into Machu Picchu. This is a unique opportunity of experiencing the city almost empty. You'll then take the bus down to your accommodation in Aguas Callientes.
After a local Peruvian breakfast, you'll take an early bus up to Machu Picchu. Entering at sunrise, your guide will teach you about the history of this ancient city. After the guided tour, you'll have an opportunity to explore the city some more or hike to Huayna Picchu (tickets for this must be booked with your guide in advance). Later in the afternoon, take the Panoramic Vistadome train back to Ollantaytambo. Here, your transfer back to Cusco will be waiting for you, arriving at your hotel around 7:30 pm.
Travellers do not need hiking experience; however, they need to be able to hike for around 7 hours on uneven terrain, stairs, and narrow paths.
Start: Your guide will collect you at 04:30 am from your hotel in Cusco, on day 1 of the itinerary. Pick-up is also available from the Sacred Valley.
