Day 1: Cusco – Patallacta
Early in the morning you will be met by their guide at the lobby of your hotel at the arranged time to take the private vehicle that will transfer you to Km 82 of the Rail Road to Machu Picchu, from where you will be met by your field stuff (Porters and Cooks) with all our equipment. From here we will start our hike to km 88, using a little visited portion of the Inca Trail following the right margin of the Urubamba River to then reach the bridge that will take us to Q’ente, located at Km 88 of the railroad to Machu Picchu. We will cross the bridge and hike for about 30 minutes to the first camp in Q’ente. Lunch will be served at campsite. After lunch, we will visit Machu Q’ente (one ½ hour hike) and Patallacta ruins,Patallacta Inca site. After time to enjoy landscape, we will pass Cusichaka river then we will arrive at Patallacta to camp. Camp. (L / D)
Day 2: Llactapata – Llulluchapampa.
Today is another relatively easy day. Most groups would be powering ahead along the Inca Trail today and would be heading over Dead Woman’s Pass, the highest point on the trek and one of the hardest and longest climbs on the Inca Trail. We’re going to take things at a more leisurely pace and our goal for today is a campsite just before the pass, Llulluchapampa, this breaks the hardest stretch over two days making the climb significantly easier.
On the way to Llulluchapampa we’ll once again go off the beaten track to visit the least visited of all the sites on the Inca Trail, the Inca fort of Paucarcancha. As we climb up to Llulluchapampa we’ll pass through various biozones including the low sierra, cloud forest and the high puna. There are many opportunities to see a variety of plant and birdlife and if we are lucky we may also spot White Tailed Deer. Our campsite for the night is at 3800m / 12460ft. and just like before it is tranquil and quiet with most trekkers either camping in the valley below or on the other side of the pass.
Day 3: Llulluchapampa – Phuyupatamarca.
Today is our longest day and crosses two high passes; luckily for us we’re nearly at the first pass and once we’ve passed the second the walking is easy with very little ups and downs to contend with. Today sees some of the best views and scenery of the whole Inca Trail and includes visits to two Inca sites (Runcuraccay and Sayacmarca); with fantastic views of the high snow-capped peaks for most of the day and the cloud forest all around us today is by far the most visually stunning.
Our campsite for tonight is at Phuyupatamarca (3680m / 12073ft) from where we’ll get our first views of Machu Picchu mountain far in the distance (the site itself is hidden from view). The views of the sunset from here are fantastic and once again the campsite is quiet with the majority of trekkers camping closer to Machu Picchu.
Day 4: Phuyupatamarca – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes
We will arise very early so that we may catch the sunrise from Intipunku (Sun Gate), with the anticipation of continuing on the trail your hearts may begin to pound from the excitement of what awaits your every step and breath as you approach the fabled citadel. Just as you are to make your final turn and approach the trail entry, you’ll let out a sigh of relief to know the reward is only a few steps further. As you enter Intipunku you will get your first breathtaking view of Machu Picchu.
As you proceed down into Machu Picchu you will find rock structures or temples along the path, which the guide will point out as you make your way into the sacred city. As soon as you arrive your guide will explain the history and the myths that surround this archaeological wonder. Camp. (B / L / D)
Day 5: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco
We will wake early with different views not any more on the mountains now we will be on the Urubamba river side. After breakfast we will go once again to one of the sacred city of the Incas your guide will explain the history and the myths that surround this archaeological wonder from this corner of the world, you will have plenty of time in Machu Picchu to explore, or to hike up Huayna Picchu, giving you a total two days to enjoy this wonder of the world.

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
** 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
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).
After early breackast We will drive you southeast to Tinki. You’ll most likely stop on the way at the towns of Ocongate and Qatca where you you can have a drink and see some local culture. The journey to Tinki takes roughly 3.5 hours. From Tinki your trek begins proper. You start by trekking through the Vilcanota Valley before steadily climbing upwards to some high grasslands. Here you get your first glimpse of the Vilcanota range, including both Ausangate and Colqe Cruz peak. You cross the Mapacho river before continuing on through local community villages towards the base of Ausangate. You camp near the thermal baths at Upis (4408m). According to local legend, the baths are medicinal and many pilgrims seek the baths each year to heal. Upis hots springs overnight.
After breakfast we begin our trek at 7:00am. We begin ascending for 3 hours The morning begins with your first mountain pass crossing – Arapa (4850m). The views of Ausangate from Arapa pass are stunning and you’ll want to get your camera ready! After reaching the pass you stop for a light lunch before descending down into the valley on a well-trodden gravel trail. On your descent you’ll pass the green lake of Puqa Q’ocha (4556m). Once back down in the valley you camp for the night beside the gorgeous blue lake of Jatun Puqa Q’ocha. From your camp site you can choose to climb a nearby ridge to view the red-tinged lake of Vino Q’ocha. Each lake in the region is coloured differently depending on the coloured sediment of the nearby mountains.
Today is a big day and the most anticipated day of the trek. We hike up to 17,000 feet where you will be graced with views of the majestic painted hills, but don't get too excited yet, we still have a few hours to go before we finally arrive at the Rainbow Mountain of Vinicunca. We have a celebratory lunch on top and take long break to enjoy the views. After lunch we head back up the valley and set up camp near Lake Yanaorqo.
Continue as far as we can towards Puca punta the red sandstone sediment formations, such a wonderful experience. Here we see vicuñas and luckily condors, to shorten the climb this is a relatively short day and eventually encounter Vinicunca a mountain of striations of colors embedded in the hillsides. best known as The Rainbow Mountain, it speaks for itself. We ended up having a marvelous time and arrive to Cusco
