If you are short on time (or energy) you can still enjoy the highlights of the Inca Trail. You can visit the most beautiful site on the Inca Trail, Wiñay Wayna and arrive at Machu Picchu in only two days!
Day 1: WiÃ±ay Wayna - Machu Picchu
We will pick you up from your hotel at 3:40 AM (depending on the train schedule) and take you to the train station. We travel by train, on a very picturesque route for two and a half hours to the starting point of the trek (Kilometer 104). We then have a walk of approximately four hours up to the Inca site of WiÃ±ay Wayna (Forever Young), (2,680 m/8,792 ft), the most impressive site on the Inca Trail.
We will then continue to Inti Punku (Sun Gate), (2,730 m/8,792 ft) from where you will have your first incredible, panoramic view of Machu Picchu (2,400 m/7,873 ft). We will walk down to the last part of the trail towards the ancient city itself.
Day 2: Machu Picchu Tour
The final day begins with a substantial breakfast before we take the first bus at 6:00 AM to Machu Picchu. A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide and after this, you can explore the amazing city by yourselves. If you still have energy and have bought the ticket, you can also climb Huayna Picchu (2,720 m/8,923 ft). It takes 45 minutes to reach the top of Huayna Picchu, and you will get a magnificent view of Machu Picchu and its surroundings.
You will later meet your guide back in Aguas Calientes (the trip down to Aguas Calientes can be reached by bus or foot) for lunch (this lunch is not included in the cost of the trek) and to receive your train tickets back to Cusco.
