It is a short route of the Inca Trail, which connects beautiful archaeological sites such as Wiñayhuayna, Inti Punku (the Sun Gate), and finally arriving at the Historic Sanctuary of Machupicchu, it is ideal for tourists who have little time to visit Cusco and it is also ideal for people who do not want to walk a lot, it has a distance of 15 km.

Day 1: Cusco – Km. 104 – Wiñayhuayna – Aguas Calientes:

At around 04:30 am, we will pick you up from your hotel to go from Cusco – Ollantaytambo by bus. Then, we will head to the train station to take the train to Km 104 where the short Inca trail begins. We will visit Chachabamba (2,250 masl) at Km 104. The hike continues with a visit to Wiñayhuayna (Always Young) which is said to be the old house of the ancient priests of Machupicchu. Amongst the landscape is a fantastic view of the Urubamba River. Continuing with the tour, we get the first view of the historic sanctuary of Machupicchu (we do not visit-just pass through the control), and finally, we go down to the village of Aguas Calientes to the accommodation of the passengers’ choice.

Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes – Cusco:

We will take the first bus that departs from the village of Machupicchu at 05:30 am so you can be the first ones to the sanctuary of Machupicchu.
