Cusco- Km 104- Inca trail -Machu PIcchu

The one day Inca Trail hiking tour sounds too good to be true. How is it possible to experience one of the Seven Wonders of the World in a few short hours? But we promise you will be blown away by this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Your pickup time is scheduled bright and early for 4:00 a.m. if you decide to be picked up from your hotel in Cusco by your English-speaking tour guide. Additionally, you have the option to sleep in a little and meet your tour guide at the Ollantaytambo train station at 5:30 a.m. At the train station, you may purchase extra snacks for the hike. There is also a local cafe where you can load up on your favorite caffeinated products to give you energy for the journey ahead. The scenic train ride to 104 km will last about one hour. After, you will start hiking the one day Inca Trail. You will begin with a moderate three-hour hike uphill. This not-too-strenuous workout has many superb views of beautiful waterfalls along the way.   After, you will see Wiñay Wayna, an impressive Inca ruin built into the hillside. This site also includes a view of the Urubamba River and the Urubamba Canyon below. In Wiñay Wayna, you will have the chance to rest after the first stretch of the hike. You will also be able to eat a provided box lunch as you take in the dazzling views surrounding you, both natural and man-made.   After lunch, you will hike downhill into a fantastical jungle paved with twisted roots and timeworn stone steps. Then, you will face the biggest challenge of the day, affectionately known as the "the gringo killer." The steep vertical staircase may be a bit painful, but it will lead you to Inti Punku, the Sun Gate. Once you arrive, depending on the weather, you will get a perfect view of the sprawling ruins below. After the Sun Gate, you will begin a one-hour descent into the citadel of Machu Picchu. Here, your tour guide will take you through a two-hour guided tour of the remains. You will get to see many structures of cultural significance and learn the complex history of one of the world’s most treasured locations. After the tour, you will be able to wander and explore the ruins on your own, take pictures of the magnificent scenery around Machu Picchu, and savor the finale to your one day Inca Trail hike. Finally, once you have experienced the full scope of Machu Picchu, you will take a bus to Aguas Calientes. Your tour ends here, and you have the option to purchase a train ticket to return. But you also have the opportunity to relax in the town’s natural hot baths or enjoy a well-earned meal at one of the excellent restaurants nearby. As you unwind from the day, you can reflect on the knowledge that you’ve seen firsthand one of the Seven Wonders of the World, an experience you’re sure to never forget.
