Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 4 days

We offer you the classic Inca trail to Machu Picchu in 4 days, you will enjoy amazing places and views, along this route hand-hewn stone stairs and trails through sumptuous mountain scenery and amazing cloud forest, past rushing rivers and dozens of Inca ruins. The zone is inhabited by rare orchids, 419 species of birds, and even the indigenous spectacle bear. The trek begins at Qorihuayrachina near Ollantaytambo - more easily described as Km 88 of the railway from Cusco to Aguas Calientes. The 43 km (26 miles) route passes three formidable mountain passes, including the punishing “Dead Woman's Pass” to a maximum altitude of 4,200msnm (13,800 ft.). Most groups enter the ruins of Machu Picchu at sunrise on the fourth day, although others, whose members are less keen on rising at 3:30am to do it, trickle in throughout the morning.
