We pick you up at your hotel at 5 a.m., and leave Cusco at about 6 a.m. We drive for about 3 hours, through Calca to Lares, where we start walking. The end of the day’s walk is at the Andean community of Quishuarani, where we make our first camp.

Today is a long day’s walk of about 8 hours, so we wake at 6 a.m., and after a hearty breakfast we are walking by 7.30 a.m. On the way you will have time to absorb the natural beauty of the Andes landscapes, and to meet local people. We will camp the second night at Lake Ipsaycocha.

We have another early start, with breakfast at 6.30 a.m., after which we visit some local villagers. At about 8 a.m., we start hiking, which today will take 4 to 5 hours. We will have extensive views of the beautiful Sacred Valley of the Incas, and come across diverse types of plants, including orchids. We arrive at the village of Huarán, where we stop for lunch. We continue on to the attractive town of Ollantaytambo, where we board our train to Aguas Calientes and our night’s accommodation in a hotel.

 

DAY 4: AGUAS CALIENTES – MACHU PICCHU – CUSCO

 

We get up very early to have breakfast and leave at about 5.30 a.m. so we can see the sun rise over the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu and the mountains that surround it.
