The Inca Trek is probably one of the most famous walks in South America. A four day hike, taking you from Cusco into the high Andean Mountains and along a secret trail only known by a few trusted Incas, through many micro climates and spectacular scenery.

After going over the pass, you will descend towards Yanacocha (Black Lagoon) and enter the cloud-forest to finally arrive at Sayacmarca (3,624 m), a beautiful complex made up of a semicircular construction, narrow
streets, liturgical fountains, patios and irrigation canals. You will then walk a further 30 minutes to Chakiqocha where you will stop for lunch. Continue walking towards the third pass, the Abra Phuyupatamarka “Town over the clouds” (3,650 m). Along this climb, you will be able to admire the magnitude of the Incas´ ancient craft, by walking along paths semi-detached from the mountain, and rocks that fill up ravines in a perfect order, saving the trail from the rough geography of the Andes. Entering an Inca tunnel you will arrive finally to the complex that shares the same name as the pass and is regarded as one of the most complete and best preserved archaeological sites along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and from above, one can observe a sophisticated sacred complex made up of water fountains with solid foundations. Journey down along the long stone steps and appreciate the impressive view of the Urubamba Valley, before arriving to Wiñaywayna (2,650 m), the biggest archaeological site on the Inca Trail besides Machu Picchu, which consists of an agricultural centre with numerous terraces, and a religious and urban sector. Here, you will camp and overnight.
