Start of the trail

We will pick you up from your hotel in our private bus for an awe-inspiring journey through the Sacred Valley of the Incas to Chillca, the 77km mark of the Cusco-Machu Picchu trail, our starting point. After crossing a footbridge, we embark on an undulating trek through a dry cactus zone, offering breathtaking views of Mt. Verónica’s snow-capped peaks and the roaring Urubamba river beside us. Our campsite awaits at the impressive terraces of Inca Llaqtapata (2750 meters above sea level), where we’ll further explore the surrounding areas of this vast ancient farming complex. For today and tomorrow, we recommend stocking your day-pack with candies, chocolates, and coca leaves to maintain energy levels and alleviate altitude sickness.


We rise early to continue our trek along the Kusichaca River valley. The trail gently ascends through the quaint village of Huayllabamba (3000 m), offering breathtaking views of the Vilcanota ridge across the Urubamba River, with the imposing Veronica peak towering at 5832 meters above sea level. Leaving Huayllabamba behind, we embark on the most challenging section of the trek: a steep 9 km ascent towards the first mountain pass of the Inca Trail, Abra Warmihuañusca, also known as “Dead Woman’s Pass” (4,200 meters above sea level). We camp at Llulluchapampa (3,750 meters above sea level), nestled below towering cliffs, with panoramic vistas of the Huayanay massif’s snow-capped peaks and valleys to the east.


After breakfast, we ascend to Warmiwañusca, the highest point of the Inca Trail, with breathtaking views. Descending to Pacamayo valley (3600 meters above sea level), we traverse an Inca stairway, passing Runkuracay. At the second pass, we admire vistas of the Pumasillo range before descending to the ruins of Sayacmarca, known as “Inaccessible Town.”

The Inca Trail, now a granite-paved structure, winds through the cloud forest, adorned with orchids, bromeliads, mosses, and ferns. Our campsite near Phuyupatamarca, or “Town of the Clouds” (3700 meters above sea level), offers stunning views of the Urubamba river. This archaeological site features a sacred complex with sturdy foundations. We camp here, immersed in its ancient atmosphere under the starlit sky.


As mentioned, Phuyupatamarca boasts breathtaking views. From this vantage point, we can admire the long descending stone steps leading to Wiñaywayna (2700 meters above sea level), meaning “Forever Young.” This remarkable complex features an agricultural center with numerous terraces, a religious sector, and an urban area, making it the largest and most exquisite site along the Inca Trail.

After exploring Wiñaywayna, we ascend to Intipunku, or The Sun Gate, a one-hour hike along a trail of flat stones perched on the cliffs of the highland jungle. Weather permitting, this fabulous spot offers spectacular views of the sacred citadel of Machu Picchu. Tonight, we stay in a charming hotel.
