Our world is full of marvelous places; the path to get to the most beautiful of all those in Latin America is through the highlands. Embark on a memorable adventure to discover an amazing variety of landscapes and ecological areas: we will explore refreshing waterfalls and Inca remains then we will trek through open lands, encountering amazing ramps and rock blocks left by the Incan Kachiqhata Quarry.

Day 1: Socma – Rayan

Early in the morning we begin our journey with a thirty minute drive to the village of Socma. Before the day’s trek, you will stop to visit a small school, meet the children and donate school supplies. The trek begins with a gradual climb offering fantastic views of the valley below. After two hours of hiking you will arrive to the spectacular Piruchayoc waterfalls (3275m / 10745ft) to refresh you. Thirty minutes further along the trail are the ruins of Raccaypata where you will have lunch and time to explore the ruins, then you will hike a final two miles to the campsite at Rayan (3595m / 11795ft). Finally it’s time to enjoy the sunset over the Andes and relax for today. (L / D)

Day 2: Rayan – Kachiqhata

After a nourishing breakfast we will hike a winding path that ascends to the Chacracahualla pass at 4240m / 13910ft. It is surrounded by the Vilcanota mountain range with the snow capped mountain Veronica rising above the peaks. The hike to the pass is a step back in time, observing local farmers working in their fields sowing potatos and other local crops. Then we will continue walking through open grasslands to finally go down to the second campsite, Kachiqhata (3500m / 11130ft). (B / L / D)

Day 3: Kachiqhata – Ollantaytambo

The last day of trekking! After breakfast we will walk down exploring different parts of the Kachiqhata quarry. En route we will observe not only huge blocks of pink diorite, testimony of the biggest plan that was never realised, but also we will enjoy panoramic views of the valley. Arriving at Ollantaytambo you will have your lunch in a local restaurant close to the train station and time to prepare your journey at the lost city of America: Machu Picchu.
(B / L / D)

Day 4: Machu Picchu – Cusco

We will get up early to visit this lost city hours before most other tourists arrive on the morning train from Cusco, in the company of those trekkers arriving from the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Standing at the top of a steep, forested hill overlooking the Urubamba River, Machu Picchu was hidden by dense vegetation for centuries until the historian Hiram Bingham began to clear the site. Today the city has been restored and even if it has lost some of its mystery it still remains an unforgettable sight. Our tour includes a visit to the temples, plazas, palaces, watercourses and residential areas and will also leave you time to explore the ruins on your own, or to climb Huayna Picchu.

In the afternoon we will return to Cusco by train, transfer to hotel. (B)

TIPS FOR OUR PORTERS
IMPORTANT: Some of the reasons that our price may be higher than that of other agencies are the following:

We ALWAYS book the maximum number of porters possible (according to Inca Trail regulations) so that our porters are not overloaded.

Also, We are the only travel operator in Peru that supplies porters with proper tents, sleeping pads and adequate food for this type of activity.
We always we take care our hosremans and horses during our alternative treks so tiping it will be the seim as for the porters

Beware of this when booking they might be cheaper because of this!

2 people (minimum group size) should have a maximum of 7 porters and 16 people (max group size) should have 22 porters.
** Tips for porters, cooks or guides are optional and are NOT included in our price. However our advice is that you tip our staff based on their performance, service and knowledge. Our guidelines for tipping our staff is the following:
Each porter gets 100 Soles, each assistant cook 150 Soles, the Main Chef gets 300 Soles.make sure to tip more if your trip it is more than 5 days or if it is luxury treks
Assistant Tour guides can be tipped collectively by the members of the group, we suggest a 5% of the total cost of the tour.
Main guides are tipped on a one on one basis and based on their performance. Tour guides are professional people who spend a lot of time training in different other fields such archaelogy, history and WFA. We suggest people to consider tipping our guide a 10% to 15% of the value of your tour.
Train included in all tours is the Expedition train (to Ollanta). Train times will only be confirmed once full amount of tour is paid. The earliest train you could take is the 2:55 PM and the 9:20 PM being the last train (high season June to September). We will organize the transport back to Cusco (by taxi or by bus).
