The Short Inca Trail trek is the small versión of one of the most famous trekking routes in the world and at the same time this hiking route is the best option for people who prefer a moderate hike to go to Machu Picchu.
Our short Inca Trail trek includes during the first day a bus ride from Cusco to Ollantaytambo, a train ride from Ollantaytambo town to Kilometer 104, a 6 hours hike through the original Inca Trail, until arriving at the Heritage of the World Machu Picchu.
Actually, the tour includes the visit of Machu Picchu in two different days, during the afternoon on the first day and during the morning on the second day, a hotel stay in Aguas Calientes Town and a train ride from Aguas Calientes to Cusco.
We will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the train station. We will travel on a very picturesque route for 1 and 30 minutes until we reach kilometer 104 – so here will start the short Inca trail Trek for us.
From here, we have a walk of approximately 4 hours up to the Inca site of Wiñay Wayna (2680m/8792ft). You have joined the path in time to see the most impressive site on the whole Inca Trail!!
Consequently, After lunch, we will continue on to ‘Inti Punku’ (‘Sun gate’) (2730m/8792ft) from where we will have a panoramic view of Machu Picchu (2400m/7873ft). We will walk down the last part of the trail towards the ancient city itself.
Before reaching Machu Picchu, we will take a side path off the short Inca trail to go down to Aguas Calientes, leaving the visit to Machu Picchu for the next day.
Therefore In Aguas Calientes, you will spend the night in a 3-star hotel.
After breakfast at your hotel, your tour guide will pick you up and take you to the bus station to take the bus up to Machupicchu. Once in Machupicchu, you will have your guided tour for more than 2 hours and then you will have time to explore the city by yourself.
