Upon our arrival a professional guide introduces us to the Inca Trail saga and announces the incredible paths you will get to experience.
A beautiful path crossing through the Inca land leads to our first stop: The Chachabamba archaeological site (2178 mts/7145.7 ft). This ancient ruins were only discovered in the 1940s, most likely because they are in midst of a vast array of rainforest. We will encounter plenty of exceptional plants, colorful orchids and beautiful birds, while heaps of before unseen will raise your attention. Making our way through the tropical thicket the next stunning archeological site await you after three hours: Wiñaywayna (2650 mts/8694.2 ft), Quechuan for “Forever Young”. A hint to the marvellous orchids being spread throughout the forest.
To recharge our batteries an exclusive picnic and refreshing beverages wait for us at Wiñaywayna, freshly prepared on spot for your satisfaction. Once we are done, a challenge for your upper legs lies ahead of you. Steep stairs over a course of 1.5 hours lead to Intipunku (2750 mts/9022.3 ft), also called the “Sun’s Gate”. Your legs will immediately forgive you when they vanquish the last step. The sun on a low level shining it’s light on unimaginable landscapes of pure beauty, peaks of sheer rocks and in the middle: Machu Picchu (2430 mts/7972.4 ft), the lost city of the Incas. To make our view even more corny we will hike down to the ancient ruins for about an hour, where we witness the dreamy happening of the sun setting behind the massive mountain range. After the spectacle you will be transferred to your hotel depending on your selection.After settling at your hotel, getting a hot shower and recalling the experiences of the day. A good base for a sound sleep to be ready for what is going to happen the next day.
