One day hike Royal Inca Trail (1 Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu) starts idyllic by a wake-up early. Then we are taken by our private transport to the railway station at Ollantaytambo to board a train taking us to the starting head trail - so called Km 104. Then we pass through an Inca Trail checking point and start hiking through lush vegetation of a
cloud forest while greeeted by local exotic birds such as Andean guan, grey-breasted mountain tucan, etc. and since we can see various wild orchids and bromelias along the path too. Our expert Tour Guide explains us about the Chachabamba ruins. Our next stop is in Wiñay Wayna, an Inca complex neighboring to Machu Picchu. In late afternoon, we have descended to the entrance of Machu Picchu - Inti Punku (Sun Gate). Then we enter to the "Lost City of the Incas" Upon arriving to Machu Picchu, you will get a private guided tour and enjoy a Sunset free time in Machupicchu. After you will take the bus down to Aguas Calientes town, where you will take the train return to Ollantaytambo, there our driver will take to Cusco. Great for families, those short on time, or when permits for the classic inca trail are sold out.
