Peru Inca Step: Lima, Cusco, and Inca Trail - 9 Days

There are few Peru tours as exhilarating as hiking the Inca Trail! Get well acquainted with the vibrant culture and rich history of Cusco and the Sacred Valley before embarking on the iconic Inca Trail directly to Machu Picchu. You’ll traverse mountain passes and cloud forests by foot, stargaze into Sacred Valley night skies, and explore countless off-the-beaten-path Inca ruins.

Departure & Return Location:

Lima Airport.

Departure Time:

Pick up from Lima Airport (at your arrival time).

IMPORTANT INFO BEFORE YOU GO

Deposits

A non-refundable deposit (varies depending on tour) is payable from the Client to Huaynas Expeditions when reserving any Product. If the reservation is made 7 days or fewer before departure, full payment is required at the time of booking. Depending on the original booking method, the client should send the non-refundable deposit to Huaynas Expeditions or the authorized Agent through whom they made their reservation.

Tour Briefing

A pre-tour briefing is given to you, ideally two days before the start of the trek. This is comprehensive information on the tour schedule, required gear, altitude, weather, etc. Questions and concerns will be clarified so that you fully comprehend the tour schedule.

Acclimatization

It is strongly suggested to be progressively acclimatized; thus, you should arrive in Cusco 2 days previous to trek departure. Altitude sickness causes you a headache, stomache, hands tingling, etc. There is certain medicine you may take to avoid altitude sickness, for instance acetazalomide; moreover, it is helpful to have coca tea; and hot liquids to not become dehydrated. You must descend as the ultimate emergency if you develop serious altitude sickness.

Pick Up of Guests

If your hotel is located in the Historical Center of Cusco, Huaynas Expeditions will pick you up there. Although your guide will schedule the pickup time during the briefing, please be aware that the pickup time could change by up to 20 minutes due to traffic.

Cusco is an ancient city, and there are lots of winding cobblestone streets there. It may be challenging to move luggage to some hotels and Airbnbs because they are situated on car-free streets or long, including inclines. Booking lodging with adequate access is something we strongly advise.

Duffel Bag or Canvas Case

You’ll be given a canvas case or duffel bag during your briefing. Our horses will transport them, and the horsemen will hand them to you as you arrive at each camp. They are 60 x 24 x 22 centimetres (23.6 x 9.45 x 8.66 in).

Each duffel bag can only contain a maximum of 7 kilogrammes (15.4 lb), which includes the weight of your clothing, sleeping bag, and other personal belongings.

Strikes and Demonstrations

Strikes and demonstrations are frequent in Peru, which may stop some of our tours. Roads can be stopped, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will attempt to keep your vacation as initially planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these conditions, trips may potentially be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, our operations department will manage everything with you. Your safety is our priority, and our decisions will be taken to protect it.

Group Tours

Because group trips are made up of various persons, physical states and ages may differ. You acknowledge that some persons may be faster or slower than you if you choose to participate in a group trip. As a result, everyone on the road may proceed at their own speed.

It is conceivable that a group may want to change the itinerary; however, after discussing with all participants, the guide will determine if such changes are allowed.

Travel Insurance

We highly advise you to buy comprehensive travel insurance before departing. A comprehensive travel insurance coverage that covers everything from high-altitude treks to unforeseen trip adjustments is a must-have travel gear. Please remember that your standard medical insurance plan will not cover some possibilities in your own country. We suggest searching for a plan that covers the following coverage:

  • Adventure trips and any specific activity you will be undertaking on your journey (such as a high-altitude trek);
  • Recovery of your non-refundable booking deposit in the event of trip cancellation due to illness or accidental injury;
  • National or international emergency evacuation;
  • Patriation of remains in the event of death;
  • Other medical expenses related to injury, illness or death.

While we try to be understanding when situations arise, the fact is that Trip Changes and Trip Cancellation incur penalties.

Passport

To book the below things in your name, we require a photo of your passport’s bio page (Peruvian Government Requirement). Please keep in mind that each traveler must be aware of the re-entry laws for their place of residence/citizenship. Some nations require a passport valid for 6 months beyond the travel date. Please confirm that your passport is current and meets your country’s and residency standards. We can purchase your flights with an expired passport, but we will require a copy of the current passport as soon as you receive it in order to update your tickets.

Visa’s

Most countries are permitted to obtain a visa at the point of arrival. Only a few nations require visas to be obtained in advance. Please remember that each tourist is responsible for determining whether or not a visa is required before admission. Please remember that tourist visas are usually valid for 90 days or less and require proof of return travel.

Lost Objects

Please be aware of where you leave your belongings, and remember to take everything with you once you leave our transportation, tents, or restaurants. You are solely responsible for your items throughout the trip.

Itinerary

Day 1: Pick up from airport in Lima

  • Upon arrival at the Lima airport, a Huaynas Expeditions representative will meet you and show you to your airport hotel.
  • Overnight in Lima.

Day 2: Lima - Cusco

  • Huaynas Expeditions will schedule a private transfer to take you from your hotel to the airport for your flight to Cusco. Upon arrival at the Cusco airport, a Huaynas Expeditions representative will meet you for the drive to the historic center.
  • Arriving mid-day at your hotel, you will have the rest of the day to relax and explore. Since Cusco is located at 11,300 feet in elevation, during this first day you may want to take it slow to acclimatize. Nevertheless, this is a good chance to wander about the main square, with its many cafes and stores, or even visit a museum. There are also many options for casual and/or fine dining.

Day 3: Cusco City Tour

  • Spend the morning at your leisure. This is an excellent time to explore some of Cusco’s less-visited attractions, including the famous San Pedro Market, the bohemian neighborhood of San Blas, or one of Cusco’s many fine museums.
  • In the afternoon, an expert guide will take you to some of the world’s best archeological sites, including the beautiful Cusco Cathedral, the sacred Temple of the Sun or Qoricancha, and the spectacular Sacsayhuaman fortress. In the late afternoon, you’ll return to your Cusco hotel. Spend the evening at your leisure enjoying the local cuisine, music, and the splendor of Cusco at night.

Day 4: Sacred Valley Tour - Ollantaytambo

  • Explore the beautiful Peruvian countryside with a full-day tour of the magical Sacred Valley, home to several royal estates of Incan emperors. First, you will visit the town of Pisac, famous for its bustling indigenous market and the beautiful Incan ruins on the hillside overlooking the city. Following your visit to Pisac, you will stop for lunch (not included) at a buffet restaurant offering a variety of Peruvian and international food near the town of Urubamba, named after the sacred river that flows through the region.
  • Next, you will visit the spectacular fortress of Ollantaytambo. These magnificent Incan ruins were part of the royal estate of the Incan emperor Pachacuti. Later, you will be taken to your comfortable hotel in the Sacred Valley. In Ollantaytambo, you can continue exploring the traditional Incan town at your leisure.

Day 5: Starts the Inca Trail: Ollantaytambo - Km82 - Huayllabamba

  • Start your day early with a pick-up from your hotel and a scenic 2-hour drive through the Sacred Valley to Ollantaytambo. Here you will collect your trekking equipment and meet the rest of your team before continuing by bus to Piscacucho (Km. 82), where the Inca Trail starts. Once you cross the Piscacucho Bridge over the Urubamba River, the trek begins. You will walk along the valley until continuing on a steeper path toward a high plateau. Your efforts will be rewarded by a spectacular view of the Inca ruins of Patallacta.
  • Patallacta, “Village in the Heights,” is an archeological complex situated at the foot of a mountain on the left bank of the river Cusicancha, a tributary of the river Urubamba. After lunch, you will continue the trek for another two hours until you reach the first campsite of Wayllabamba. This is the highlight of the day as it includes breathtaking views of the Vilcanota ridge.

Hike Distance: 7.5 mi (12 km)
Minimum Altitude: 8,230 ft (2,600 m)
Maximum Altitude: 9,840 ft (3,000 m)
Approximate Time: 4 to 6 hrs
Gradient: Moderate

Day 6: Wayllabamba - Warmiwañusca - Pacaymayo

  • The second day is the most rigorous when you will reach the highest elevation sections of the Inca Trail, so you are encouraged to take your time. The walk is arduous, with a long steep climb to the Abra de Warmiwañusca, known as the “Dead Woman’s Pass,” at over 13,700 feet (4,200 meters). Once you cross the pass, a winding path of steps descends steeply across a natural valley and to the next campsite.
  • Keep your eyes open for wildlife; besides the many avian species that live here, you may spot the Andean bear. Also called the spectacled bear, this solitary creature is native to the Andean cloud forest. Today you will end your hike at the Pacaymayo Valley campsite. Here you will have dinner and take a well-deserved rest after a strenuous day on the trail.

Hike Distance: 10 mi (16 km)
Minimum Altitude: 9,840 ft (3,000 m)
Maximum Altitude: 13,830 feet (4,215 m)
Approximate Time: 7 to 8 hrs
Gradient: Challenging

Day 7: Pacaymayo - Runkurakay - Wiñay Wayna

  • After breakfast, the hike continues along a path rich with archaeological treasures. A steep climb will lead you to the Runkurakay Pass. Halfway along the trail, you will encounter the ruins of Runkurakay, an Inca lodge with a view of the valley of Pacaymayo, “Hidden River,” below. Continue wandering past picture-perfect mountain vistas and lakeside villages before reaching the ruins of Conchamarca and Phuyupatamarca, “The Town in the Clouds.”
  • As the day ends, you will head toward the ruins of Wiñay Wayna or “Forever Young,” where you will camp for your final night. The ruins consist of Incan agricultural terraces and are believed to be a religious center where water was worshiped. Flower enthusiasts will be pleased to see the area’s fabulous pink orchids. Cold beers and a party the last evening is the norm, allowing you to say goodbye to your cook and porters, who will walk ahead of you early the following day to catch a train back to Cusco.

Hike Distance: 10 mi (16 km)
Minimum Altitude: 8,700 ft (2,650 m)
Maximum Altitude: 12,500 ft (3,900 m)
Approximate Time: 8 to 10 hrs
Gradient: Moderate

Day 8: Wiñay Wayna - Sungate - Machu Picchu - Aguas Calientes - Cusco

  • After an early start with breakfast, you will be on the final leg of the trail by 5 a.m. in order to reach Inti Punku, the Sun Gate entrance to Machu Picchu for sunrise. While weather conditions may vary, the view is always awe-inspiring. From here you will descend to the citadel for a guided tour of Machu Picchu. You will be able to appreciate the intricate Inca stonework carved into the fantastic Andean scenery. You will have the chance to explore the three zones of this centuries-old city: the urban, agricultural, and adjacent zones. The Temple of the Sun, the Intihuatana, and the Principal Bath are only a few of the impressive sights that you will see.
  • In the afternoon, you will take a comfortable train back to Cusco and then be transferred to your Cusco hotel for the evening.

Hike Distance to Machu Picchu: 3.7 mi (6 km)
Approximate Time: 8 to 4 hrs
Gradient: Moderate
