INCA TRAIL 2 DAYS

Description

INCA TRAIL TO MACHU PICCHU: 2 DAYS – 1 NIGHT

For those tight on time but still want to the energy of Qhapac Ñan (Inca Trail) and glimpse Machu Picchu from the heights of the sun gate, you can partake in the 2-day Inca Trail Trek. You’ll hike along 12 kilometers of this alternative scared trail where you will discover archaeological remains, dense forests, waterfalls, and native flora and fauna—all without the usual crowds along the 4-day trek. The 2-day hike is a generally peaceful trek for those who like tranquility and nature.

We’ll start the trek in the ruins of Cochabamba, hiking uphill for 3 hours to the ruins of Wiñay Wayna and another two hours to Machu Picchu. After taking in our first views of Machu Picchu, we descend to the remote town of Aguas Calientes where we will rest and recharge before our guided visit to Machu Picchu on Day 2. If you are tight on time and are in good physical condition to do so, you may also choose to complete this entire trek in a single day, completing your trek and exploring Machu Picchu in the same day.
