2-day Hike

Short Inca Trail Hike Machu Picchu Tour 2 days / 1 night

The first day of the Short Inca Trail Hike Machu Picchu is little and easy. Passengers hike for about 4-5 hours to reach the ruins of Wiñay Wayna, which is one of the most popular stops on the Inca Trail. We will arrive at the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu at sunset, with a landscape rarely seen in the classic photo. Then we will go down to our accommodation in Aguas Calientes.

The short Inca Trail Hike Machu Picchu Tour 2 days program is a great way to experience the beauty of Machu Picchu and the Andes mountains. On the first day, the trail is challenging, but it is also rewarding. During the two days of travel, the views from the trail are stunning, and the ruins of Machu Picchu are truly awe-inspiring.

This is the checkpoint to take a break from hiking or for those who are going directly to Machu Picchu, Vilcabamaba, or the jungle.

We are going to walk gradually up and where will see beautiful flora and fauna along the way. After approximately 3 hours we will pass by a waterfall and then arrive at the archeological center of Wiñay Wayna at 2650 masl. The name comes from an orchid named Wiñay Wayna which means forever young. Then we will continue along the path toward the Sungate located at 2,745 masl. This place offers the first panoramic views of Machu Picchu. Finally, we will take a bus down to Aguas Calientes where we will spend the night in a hotel.
