Time of departure
Day 1: Cusco - Ollantaytambo - Pumamarca - Aguas Calientes
Early in the morning (6:00am) you will be picked up from your hotel and driven about one hour and twenty minutes to the village of Ollantaytambo - Pumamarca comnunity . From there starts the hike to the site of Pumamarca. The hike is about 2.5 hours from Ollantaytambo to Pumamarca. Once outside the crowded tourist center, you’ll find yourself immediately in another world, a world of tranquility, ancient streets with houses built on Inca foundations, courtyards where chicha (corn beer) is being served and where chickens and guinea pigs walk around freely. Thereafter beautiful nature, small farms and splendid Inca terraces will appear on the road; this is a place only few tourists will experience in their lives. On the way, you will stop to enjoy a tasty picnic in beautiful surroundings. Once you get to Puma Marca, you will explore the site with your guide who will tell you about the history of the place. After returning to Ollantaytambo by the hidden ancient trail, you still have time to visit the old village and (if desired) to ascend to another Inca site around Ollantaytambo or explore the market. From there the train goes to Aguas Calientes, where you will spend the night in a hotel.
Day 2: Machu Picchu - Cusco
On the final day, you will first have breakfast and then take the first bus at 5am to Machu Picchu. A walking tour (approximately 2 hours) is given by your guide and after this you can explore the mysterious city on your own. If you still have energy, you can also climb Huayna Picchu (2,720 m/8,923 ft). It takes 45 minutes to reach the top of Huayna Picchu and you will get a magnificent view over Machu Picchu and its surroundings. You will later meet your guide back in Aguas Calientes (the trip down to Aguas Calientes can be reached by bus or by foot) for lunch (this lunch is not included in the cost of the trek) and to receive your train tickets back to Cusco. If you desire an extra night in Aguas Calientes, it can be arranged. This option is very popular as it allows more time to explore Machu Picchu. You can also go to the thermal springs in the town - a real treat after finishing the tour.
