Inca Trail - 2 days
We will visit the most incredible hiking trail in Latin America: a 500-year-old path to Machu Picchu. During the hike we will enjoy a unique environment and our steps will take us, among other spectacular places, to the Archaeological Zone of Wiñaywayna and Puerta del Sol, the entrance to the sacred area of the Inca citadel. The next morning, one of the most magical moments on the planet awaits us: watching the legendary sunrise at Machu Picchu. Then we will take a guided tour of the archaeological ruins.ItineraryDay 1: Cusco - Km. 104 - Aguas CalientesStop At:
