Overview short Inca trail tour

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.
