    What to Expect
    Day 1: Cusco - Patabamba - Huchuyqosqo

    Early morning you will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the small village of Patabamba (3800m) where our wranglers and group of lamas and mules are waiting. We load the mules up with our gear and start our walk through the high valleys to Pucamarca reaching our first pass at 4200mtr (13,779ft). Along the way we have fantastic views of the surrounding snow capped mountains and we pass some high mountains lakes. After the lunch we continue our afternoon hike visiting different Inca monuments while passing fine Inca stairs before reaching Huchuy Qosqo where our team will be setting up our tents and preparing our dinner.

    Overnight at the camp

    Day 2: Huchuy Qosqo – Chinchero – Aguas Calientes

    After a guided visit of the site Huchuy Qosqo you will continue the hike to the small town of Chinchero taking in some breathtaking views and arriving around noon. You'll then visit a local home for traditional weaving demonstrations where you will also be served lunch. Later in the afternoon, your private transport will drive you to Ollantaytambo, where you will catch the afternoon train to Aguas Calientes. Upon arrival to Aguas Calientes, you will check into your rooms and have free time for the rest of the night.

    Day 3: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

    On the third day of the tour, you will wake up early and catch the local transport up to Machu Picchu. A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide in Machu Picchu and afterwards you can explore the mysterious city on your own. If you still have energy and bought the ticket, you can also climb Huayna Picchu (2,720 m/8,923 ft). It takes 45 minutes to reach the top of Huayna Picchu. Upon returning to Aguas Calientes, you will have one last lunch before coming back to Cusco in the afternoon.
