You will be taken from your hotel in Cusco to km 104 to start the trek. Our trek will take us along the most impressive stretch of the Inca Trail. We'll visit beautiful Inca sites, see flora and fauna and take in the fantastic panoramas of the Andes mountains. Covering 6.21 miles (10km) of the trail, our journey begins in the Sacred Valley and works it's way up along an original Inca Trail to the Inca site of Winay Wayna before continuing on to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate (Inti Punku). As we make our way to Machu Picchu, we'll pass through the lush cloud forest that covers the mountain and see a variety of plants, flowers and birds along the way. We may also see some larger mammals such as viscachas (rabbit-like Chinchillas) and spectacled bears (if we are very lucky). After a full day trekking, we'll arrive to the Sun Gate (Inti Punku) in the late afternoon and get our first views of Machu Picchu spread out in the mountain below. The light at this time of day is great for photos and, with fewer tourists in the site, it's a perfect time to take some pictures.
