Get ready for an adventure of a lifetime! Challenge yourself to the two-day hiking tour to the ancient ruins of Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu. This unique settlement is located high in the Andes mountains among the forest peaks.
The trek to the mountain range can be difficult and challenging. You should be an avid alpine climber for this trail. It has jagged rock sections with open hazardous areas and varying altitude differences. Once you arrive to the area, it will be breathtaking, as are the views on the climb up.
You will leave on a train ride through Scared Valley and narrow gorge of Urubamba River. After visiting the Chachabamba ruins, we begin the trek to our overnight hotel in Aguas Calientes we pass several trail view sites. Enjoy a soak in the hot springs before retiring for the night.
The next morning, you will be treated to a guided tour of the site. You will be able to explore the ruins on your own before a train ride back to Cusco. This 15th century Inca village was abandoned during the Spanish Conquest. It was hidden away from the world until an explorer discovery in 1911. You will have a chance to explore some of the original buildings as well as some of the newly reconstructed ones. With the ongoing rebuilding of the settlement, you will still have the sense of life when it all started.
It is designated with the UNESCO World Heritage Status and is a “must-see” spot in Peru.
