Since Inca Trail has a maximum of 500 passengers each day (including passenger and agent staff) we strongly recommend making your bookings as much in advance as possible to make sure you will find spaces on the desired departure date. We have also available alternative routes of equally awesome beauty and interest to offer to you.
We travel by train on a very picturesque route for 2 and a half hours until we reach kilometer 104 (the start of the trail for us). From here, we have a walk of approximately 4 hours up to the Inca site Wiñay Wayna. You have joined the path in time to see the most impressive site on the whole Inca Trail!
We will then continue on to Inti Punku from where you will have the first dramatic, panoramic view of Machu Picchu. We will walk down the last part of the trail towards the ancient city itself. Before reaching Machu Picchu, we will take a bus and go down to Aguas Calientes, leaving the visit to Machu Picchu for the next day.
