Day 1 : Cusco - Pumahuanca - Cuyoc

Location: Urubamba

Accommodation: Camp

Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner

On the first day you will be picked up early in the morning and driven through the Sacred Valley all the way to Pumahuanca until we reach the starting point of our trek to Lares Hot Springs. Our first day of trekking will be gradually uphill. The first Incan site we will pass is Ttica where your expert guide will share with you the rich history of the Incas and you will have the chance to explore the ruins and take photos. After a further hour of trekking along the path we will arrive at our lunch spot where a delicious lunch prepared by our talented chefs will be enjoyed by all and this will fuel us for the final two hours trekking of the day until we reach our first camping site at Sondor. The first day of the hike is plentiful in natural scenery and hikers are treated to the natural beauty of the forest of Queweña as well as a waterfall.

Day 2 : Cuyoc - Pumahuanca Pass - Cuncany

Location: Lares

Accommodation: Camp

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The second day of our trek starts with an early wake up call followed by breakfast prepared by our cook to prepare us for the hiking ahead. The terrain is uphill for two and a half hours until we reach Pumahuanca Pass, which, at 4,800 metres (15,100 feet) above sea level, is the highest point of our trek. From here you will be spoiled by the best views surrounding us, including a snow-capped mountain in the distance. After taking photos from this point we continue trekking downhill for three hours to our lunch spot at Cuncani, encountering llamas and alpacas in the wild en route and passing by picturesque lakes with the Urubamba mountain ranges in the background. After enjoying our second lunch prepared by our chef we continue our journey downhill for two hours until we reach the hot springs. At last, after two days trekking we can enjoy the hot springs (even jump into the hot water!) and relax for a couple of hours before dinner.

Day 3 : Cuncany - Hot Spring Lares - Ollantaytambo

Location: Ollantaytambo

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

The third morning of our trek starts as a relaxing one as we enjoy the hot springs, the sunshine by the river bank and our last breakfast prepared by our cook. This is followed by a 30 minute uphill hike to a lookout point from where we can appreciate the Lares Valley and Hot Springs down below. An early lunch on this day is the last of the meals prepared by the travelling cook as we part company with the cook and horseman directly after our midday meal.

Our One Day Short Inca Trail to Machupicchu starts where we disembark the train at KM104. The hike is gradually uphill for three hours until we reach the first Incan site of Wiñayhuayna, however, you will be pleasantly distracted while trekking with unique views of the cloudforest, orchids and a waterfall. On arriving at Wiñayhuayna you will enjoy a guided tour of the ruins with your expert tour guide after which you will continue the hike to the famous Sungate for approximately 90 minutes from where you will get to view Machupicchu for the first time down below.
