Machu Picchu 2D/1N Overnight
If you do not have time to do the Inca trail, we cater for 4 days or any other similar hiking tours to Machupicchu. It doesn't matter if you lack of time or one a tight budget, this would be the best option if you are still interested in exploring the Andes and the luscious green landscape around Aguas Calientes. By doing this package, you are not in a rush but instead you will have plenty of time to visit the hot springs at Aguas calientes village. Take the opportunity to explore Putucusi Mountain where few people can go for 1 hour to climb from the village, or instead you can go to Mandor flowers garden and the amazing waterfall. But most important of all, you will be able to get the ticket for Huayna Picchu Mountain or simply just have relaxing time in the new seven wonder of the Incas Machupicchu. Remember, this might be just once in a lifetime experience so you deserve to enjoy it!

DAY BY DAY BREAKDOWN
DAY 1.- CUSCO - OLLANTAYTAMBO - AGUAS CALIENTES
we will pick you up at early morning from your hotel to take you to the train station (time will be confirmed). It might be from Poroy station which is only 20
minutes away from Cusco or perhaps from Ollantaytambo which is 2 hours from Cusco, this is depending on the train company; either way the train drive is breathtaking with very comfortable seats. During the trip, you will enjoy many glacier peaks, green lush valleys and many Inca farming terraces in both sites of the valley. Moreover, you will view from the train one of the many Inca ruins and the km 82 where Inca classic trail begins. Little by little, you will enter to the jungle and Aguas Calientes (2000 meters high above sea level) where our representative will pick you up and take you to the hotel, then you will have free afternoon where you can organize some activities such as visit to the hot springs, Mandor Gardes or waterfalls. Lunch and dinner will be at the restaurant.
DAY 2.- AGUAS CALIENTES - MACHUPICCHU - CUSCO.
After early breakfast at hotel you will take bus to the ruins which only takes 30 minutes and departs every 10 minutes. Or if you don't want to take the bus but preferred to hike along the Inca trail just let your guide know so that he can show you the Inca trail to Machupicchu which takes you about 1h 20 minutes approx.
In Machupicchu you will meet you group where you will have 2 hours guided tour then will have extra time to explore the ruins or by yourself. If on the other hand you want to see Huaynapicchu you can climb or you can go to the most famous spot of Machupicchu. The sun gate is 1 hour climb or if you simply want to get postcard pictures of the ruins, by all means do so. We encourage all the travelers to make the most of their time in this place. There are options that you can take to Aguas Calientes either by bus or carry on with your walking through those famous Inca steps.
The usual departure time is in the afternoon to Ollantaytambo by bus to your hotel in Cusco.
To climb to the sun gate you don't need to get any ticket, it's for every one because the trail is not as steep as Huaynapicchu, the view is of course as beautiful as the other one which takes you 1 hour.
The other options would be to walk up to the Inca Bridge where you can get panoramic view of Machupicchu ruins which takes you 45 minutes. This place was built by the Incas in on of the most difficult places and mountains which connects with other Inca ruins such as Vilcabamba, and llactapata.
This tours needs to be booked in advance due to the train ticket is limited. Enjoy your stay with us and thank you for choosing Alpaca Travel!
