  3. 3. Cusco is Perus main tourist destination and one of the most important destinations in theAmericas. Known by the Incas as the "Home of the Gods," Cusco became the capital of one ofthe largest pre-Columbian empires: the Tawantinsuyo. Its name in Quechua means "Navel ofthe World".Day 01: Cusco – WayllabambaBetween 7:00 and 7:30 am, we pick you up at your hotel in our own private bus. We then driveto Piskacuchu (2700 msnm), a community located on the 82 kilometer of the Cusco – MachuPicchu railroad. Starting at this point, we cross the bridge and walk along the left shore of theUrubamba River as it flows north-west along the Sacred Valley.Following the trail along a flat terrain, we arrive in Miskay (2800 msnm), to then ascend andfinally see, from the tallest part of an overlook, the Inca city of Patallacta (2750 msnm).We continue trekking along the valley created by the Kusichaca River, gradually climbing forabout five hours until we reach our first campsite in the Wayllabamba village (3000 msnm).All along the way we will see spectacular views of the Vilcanota ridge on the opposite side ofthe Urubamba River, where the impressive Veronica peak reigns at 5832 meters above sealevel. Not to mention the diversity of wild flora and fauna that can be found all along thevalley.Day 02: Wayllabamba – PacaymayoWe wake up at around 6:00 am, and after breakfast we leave Wayllabamba behind to beginthe most difficult part of the trek, which consists of an abrupt and steep ascent that stretchesfor 9 km. Along this climb, the landscape changes from sierra to puna (a dry and high area withlittle vegetation).
  4. 4. On the way to the first mountain pass, the AbraWarmihuañusca (Dead Woman´s Pass), we seedomesticated llamas and alpacas grazing on ichu, one of the few plants that grow at thataltitude.We also cross an area of the so called cloud forest, which is the habitat for many differentkinds of birds like hummingbirds and sparrows and the Andean bear, which is also called theSpectacled Bear (TremarctusOrnatus).We advise that on this day specially, your day pack is well stocked with candies, chocolates andcoca leaves that will keep your sugar level high, and help with altitude sickness. Immediatelyafter the pass, we descend into the Pacaymayo valley (3600 msnm), where we camp afterapproximately 6h of hiking.Day 03: Pacaymayo – WiñaywaynaThis day is the longest but also the most impressive and the most interesting, due the numberof archaeological sites that we visit and learn about from our guide. From Pacaymayo we climbto the second pass, the Abra de Runkurakay (3970 msnm).Half way up, we visit the archaeological complex with the same name. This site, located at3800 msnm, consists of a small oval structure that is believed to have served the purpose of awatchtower. After going over the pass, we descend towards Yanacocha (Black Lagoon) andenter the cloud-forest to finally arrive at Sayacmarca (3624 msnm).Machu Picchu TravelThis is a beautiful complex made up of a semicircular construction, enclosures at differentlevels, narrow streets, liturgical fountains, patios and irrigation canals. Continuing up an easyclimb, we arrive at the third pass, the Abra de Phuyupatamarca (3700 msnm). Along this climbwe can appreciate the magnitude of the Incas´ ancient craft, by walking along paths semi-detached from the mountain, and seeing rocks that fill up ravines in perfect order, saving the
  5. 5. trail from the multileveled Andean geography. We go through an Inca tunnel to later arrive atthe aforementioned pass and down to the complex of the same name. This is one of the mostcomplete and best-preserved archaeological complexes along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu,and is located on the highest point of a mountain. Curiously, Phuyupatamarca means ¨townover the clouds¨.From above, one can observe a sophisticated sacred complex made up of water fountains withsolid foundations, and also impressive views of the Urubamba River valley and the longdescending stone steps along which we will continue on to Wiñaywayna (2700 msnm). At thiscampsite we find a lodge with a restaurant, bar and bathrooms with hot showers.The campsite has the same name as the complex located only five minutes away from thelodge. Wiñaywayna is an impressive complex made up of an agricultural center with numerousterraces, a religious sector and an urban sector.Day 04: Wiñaywayna– Machu Picchu TravelOn this fourth and last day we get up at 4.00 am to leave Wiñaywayna an hour later and climbto Intipunku, or The Sun Gate. This will take an hour of hiking along a trail of flat stones on theedges of cliffs in highland jungle. From this fabulous spot, we may see the sunrise over thesacred citadel of Machu Picchu. From Intipunku we descend into Machu Picchu, and 40minutes later we enter the citadel from the highest point through the ¨House of theGuardians¨.We then descend to the control point where we register ourselves and leave our backpacks.We immediately begin a complete guided tour of the Inca citadel that will take approximatelytwo hours. You will then have free time to walk around, climb the Huaynapicchu Mountain,where one can experience spectacular views of all of Machu Picchu, the valleys and mountainsthat surround it, or visit the Temple of the Moon and the fabulous Inca Bridge. In theafternoon, we meet in the town of AguasCalientes where, if you like, you can visit and relax in
  6. 6. the thermal baths. From here we take the train to the city of Cusco, where we will arrive afternightfall.http://www.machupicchuperutreks.com/<a href="http://www.machupicchuperutreks.com/">Machu Picchu Travel </a>& MACHUPICCHU PERU TREKS,MACHU PICCHU PERU TREKS ,we offer a wide range of services, from specific treks andexpeditions to fully customized programs around Peru, among others. specialists: adventuretravel, machupicchu travel, inca trail, machupicchu city, aguascalientes, cusco traditional,choquequirao trek, salkantay trek, vilcabamba trek, etc.For trekking lovers, our offer ranges from the traditional and classic Inca Trail to <ahref="http://www.machupicchuperutreks.com/">Machu Picchu Travel </a> to the less knownAusangate, salkantay trek, choquequirao trek or Lares treks, the enigmatic Vilcabambaexpedition or any tailor-made trek that you may dream to do.TOP 10 <a href="http://www.machupicchuperutreks.com/">Machu Picchu Travel </a>, INCATRAIL, PERU TRAVELClassic inca Trail to machupicchuShort inca trail to machupicchusalkantay to machupicchuLares to machupicchuMachu picchu full daySacred valley to machupicchuInca jungle to machupicchuChoquequirao trek
