Today we start the trek of a lifetime along the ancient Inca Trail. After a briefing with your tour leader, we depart early the following morning. Day 1 of the trek is a relatively easy walk of 13km and will prepare you for the trail’s highest pass, Warmiwanusca, at a height of 4,200m! The name translates as ‘Dead Woman’s Pass’ and we’ll reach it by lunch time on the second day of our trek. After the high pass we follow the trail downhill as it winds its way along old Inca stairs. Trekking on the third day we visit the ruins of Runkurakay, Sayacmarca and Phuyupatamarca with an overnight stop at Winay-Wayna. We rise early the next morning for the final walk to Machu Picchu where we greet sunrise over the famous ‘Sun Gate’. Explore this fabled lost Inca city on your own or simply take in the magnificence of the place. Discover the cloud-shrouded ruins of palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation.
