hike the inca trail

Today we begin the trek to the world famous Machu Picchu! Our small group will be led via local guide with trains, buses, and hiking through the Sacred Valley. We'll take it slow to acclimate to the altitude and pass through many small towns along our route, staying in a few overnight as we get closer to our final destination. 

Day 8

rise early to see machu picchu

On Day 8 we will get up early to see Machu Picchu at sunrise and explore the 15th-century Inca citadel throughout the morning. This will be a long day, as we'll also travel via train back to Cusco. It'll be a full day of adventure, ending in dinner back at our hostel for some well-deserved rest.
