Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco – Sacred Valley Tour – Cusco

Highlight of the day:  Sacred Valley is the destination with lots of great stops on the way to fully immerse in Inca culture and history.

Your Sacred Valley Tour begins at 8 a.m. when your Tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby. You will be taken on a road that winds around the mountains north of Cusco. On the way, we will stop at a famous point known as El Mirador (Lookout Point). From there, we will be able to see the Sacred Valley and gain some insight into the Inca history. The Sacred Valley was one of the main areas the Incas settled. There is an unusual abundance of fertile plains in this high area of the Andes. You will also witness vast contour terracing and irrigation channels left behind by the Incas.

Later on, we will drive towards the ruins of Pisac. Here, you will witness and learn about Inca culture. You will see amazing works of stone art and impressive agricultural terraces. After exploring, we will drive back to the lower town of Pisac to stop at a bustling handicraft market. After you spend some time walking around the market bargain hunting, we will meet for lunch at a local Andean restaurant.

After lunch, we will drive along the Urubamba River towards the town of Ollantaytambo. Once we reach Ollantaytambo, we will visit the ruins, an important area of Incan construction, built during the Inca’s heydays. This is an extraordinary Inca site because you can find rock formations representing the Inca god, Wiracocha. Afterwards, we will go to  Chincheros, a small village with beautiful views of the Sacred Valley. In this charming village, you will see adobe homes, narrow cobbled streets, and people in traditional Peruvian clothing. Here, the villagers still practice many Inca traditions and crafts. If you wish, you will see the demonstration of how wool is washed and dyed using native plants and minerals. We will return to Cusco and drop you off at your hotel.

Day 2: Cusco – Rainbow Mountain – Cusco

Highlight of the day: Vinicunca — also known as the Mountain of Seven Colors, or more simply Rainbow Mountain

our day will begin with an early pickup from your accommodation in Cusco, between 4:30 and 5:00 am. Our private transportation will take you from the south of Cusco to the town of Cusipata. The transfer lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Upon arrival in Cusipata, we will have breakfast. After breakfast, we will continue our trip to the Rainbow Mountain for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. On the way to the mountain, you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful landscapes and to see the wildlife.

We will start our adventure with a walk uphill for about 1 hour and a half, appreciating in the background snowy mountains and wonderful landscapes. Then, we will finally reach the point to which we will be able to appreciate the colors of the Rainbow Mountain and the stunning view it offers.

After visiting and taking pictures, we will return the same way we came with a 1.5-hours hike, have lunch, and start the drive back to Cusco, arriving between 5:00 and 5:30 pm.

Day 3: Cusco – Santa Maria (Biking  Day)

Highlight of the day: The exhilarating feeling of biking from the mountain tops to the warm and gorgeous jungle.

On the first day of the Inca Jungle Trail, we will pick you up from your hotel and drive through the Sacred Valley to the Malaga High Pass, where you will see stunning views of the Sacred Valley region below. At this pass, we will have a safety briefing and begin our journey on mountain bikes down a winding road with amazing views of the jungle. After approximately four hours of riding downhill, we will arrive at the jungle village of Santa Maria (1,500m/4,950ft), where we will stay in a hostel for the night.

In the afternoon, you can choose to go river-rafting in the Urubamba river as an optional addition to your adventure!

Day 4: Santa Maria – Santa Teresa (First Trekking Day)

Highlight of the day: You will trek past coffee plantations, small rivers, and fruit trees

On the second day, we will leave our bikes behind and start hiking early in the morning (approximately 8:00 am) through the highland jungle. As we descend, we will observe beautiful landscapes, meet local people, and learn about native plants and animals. You will trek past coffee plantations, small rivers, and fruit trees. In the afternoon, we will arrive at the small riverside town of Santa Teresa, where we will stay in a hostel for the night and you you will be free to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the natural hot springs!

Day 5: Santa Teresa – Aguas Calientes

Highlight of the day: We will arrive at Aguas Calientes by trekking along a path by the railroad tracks

On the third day, we will again wake up early for a refreshing jungle breakfast (approximately 7:00 am) and start walking at about 8:00 am.

There is an optional zip-line activity available on this day, for an additional US $40 per person. Those trekkers who choose this option will be bussed to the zipline location, where they will spend two hours flying through the air across stunning stretches of jungle! Once finished, they will travel by bus to Hidroelectrica to reunite with the rest of the group.

Those who do not choose to go ziplining will walk approximately three to four hours through the cloud forest to Hidroelectrica, where the entire group will eat lunch together before continuing to Aguas Calientes (about three hours of walking alongside the train tracks and around the base of Machu Picchu mountain.)

We will arrive in Aguas Calientes around 4:00 pm, check into a hotel where you can take a hot shower, and then get some dinner. Go to bed early, because you will have an early wakeup the next day!

Day 6: Machu Picchu – Cusco

Highlight of the day: Without a doubt, exploring the amazing Machu Picchu.

Huayna Picchu is the mountain that stands next to Machu Picchu and can be seen in most photos of the ruins. It is a 45-minute hike to the top.

FAQ

Pre-Trek Briefing for the Inca Jungle Trail, Sacred Valley & Rainbow Mountain 6 days / 5 nights

At Inti Sun Trek, providing a personal experience and ensuring you are thoroughly prepared for your trek is very important to us. Before you depart on the Inca Trail trek, you will receive a briefing in our office. At the briefing, you will get to meet our staff, receive maps and a detailed description of each day of your tour, be given duffel bags if you have hired a porter, and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Do the tour guides speak English?

Our team of guides are all local to the Cusco area and speak both Spanish and English fluently. Many of them also speak Quechua (the native language of Peru). With degrees in tourism and with two years minimum of experience under their belts, they are full of energy, information about the native flora and fauna, and the Inca sites, with a vast knowledge of Andean stories and legends.

How many people are there per group?

The size of your group depends on the day’s activity. The maximum size of our group service is fourteen people, and the minimum is two to three people. For groups of over eight people, we also employ an assistant guide to help out (the assistant guide is a fully qualified guide but may lack some of the experience of the main guide or still need to improve his/her English skills.)

Is the Inca Jungle Trek difficult? Do I need to be fit?

Yes, you must be moderately fit and exercise regularly to do this trek! Your first day will be spent bike-riding downhill on the road; the second day will involve several kilometers of walking over “Andean flat” terrain.In preparation, try walking ten kms per day or go to a fitness club in the months leading up to the trek. It is also important to be well acclimatised to the altitude. Try to spend at least three or four days in Cusco (3350m/11,047ft) prior to starting the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu.

Renewal or change passport number?

If you plan to renew or change your name on your passport between making your trek booking and starting your trek, you can book your trek or tour with your current passport number or name, but you must send us a copy of your old passport and a copy of your new passport when you have them. We can then make the change with the government before you arrive. The extra cost to make the change is US$25 per person. (This will cover the change in number or name for your Inca Trail Permit, Machu Picchu Entrance, and train.)

If you do not advise us of the change or do not want to pay the fee, bring the original of both passports (the old and new one). You can enter Peru with your new passport but you must show the government authorities your old passport in order to enter the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu or train. If you cannot do so, you will not be allowed to start your trek by the government officials. All names and numbers must match!!

Return train at the end of the Inca Jungle Trek:

Your return train to Cusco is the Expedition train, which departs either at 7:00 pm or 8:20 pm. We can also book an earlier train (2:55 pm, 4:35 p.m, or 6:20 pm) for you if you prefer, at an extra cost of US $25. The train we will book depends on availability and will be confirmed at your briefing. There is also an option to upgrade your train to the Vistadome train which is an extra US $65 per person. Please let us know your preference at the time of booking the tour. Unfortunately, none of the trains go straight to Cusco—they run either to Ollantaytambo or Poroy. In either case, we will transfer you back by bus to your hotel in Cusco.

Can I change my return train ticket?

It may still be possible to make changes to your return train ticket if you don’t want to take the train you originally booked. You will have to take your train ticket personally to the train station in Aguas Calientes and ask them to change the return ticket for an early one. You will probably be asked to pay an extra administration fee, which will depend on the train service and departure time. Changing the ticket will be subject to availability of spaces on the train.

What about toilets?

All of the hostels have clean, private bathrooms. However, bathrooms along the trail are limited, and you may have to pay (usually 1 sol) to use them. If you do need to use the toilet between sites, please defecate away from the trail and water supplies; you can dig a hole, or cover your feces with a rock, and take the paper with you in a bag to deposit in one of the several bins along the way.

Are river-rafting and ziplining included in this tour?

Ziplining is available as an optional activity on this tour. It is not included in the cost of your trek and is an additional US $30 per person. River-rafting is not available on the three day Inca Jungle Trek.

How many people will be sharing a room in the hostels?

In the hostels, there are three types of room available: matrimonial (one double or queen size bed), double (two beds), or triple (three beds). If you are traveling alone, you will share a room only with other members of the same sex. A private room can be made available for an additional cost. Each room has a private bathroom.

Do we have to carry our backpacks while we ride bikes?

No, you can put your daypacks in the support vehicle, which will follow behind us as we ride down the road. However, you will not be able to access the packs during the ride. Therefore, if you have an extremely small or light backpack which will not interfere with your riding ability, you may want to carry it to hold sunscreen, water, or other essentials. (There are water bottle holders attached to the bikes).

How long will we be riding bikes?

The bike ride portion of the first day will last approximately three hours.

What about altitude sickness on the Inca Jungle Trek?

To avoid altitude sickness on the trek, we recommend that you spend time in Cusco or in the Sacred Valley beforehand. If you have never been in high altitude, we recommend that you first spend a day in the Sacred Valley, because it is at a lower altitude than Cusco city.

Is the Inca Jungle Trek difficult?

Yes, you must be moderately fit and exercise regularly to do this trek! Your first day will be spent bike-riding downhill on the road; the second and third days will each involve several kilometers of walking over “Andean flat” terrain.In preparation, try walking ten kms per day or go to a fitness club in the months leading up to the trek. It is also important to be well acclimatised to the altitude. Try to spend at least three or four days in Cusco (3350m/11,047ft) prior to starting the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu.

Do I need to make an Inca Jungle Trek reservation?

As of July 1st, 2017, tourists will be able to access Machu Picchu from either 06:00 to 12:00 or from 12:30 to 17:30. Given this limit, we highly recommend that you book your tour far in advance, especially if you are interested in going during the peak tourist season (May to September). Machu Picchu entrance tickets and train tickets are often sold out weeks in advance.

Is there an oxygen bottle available during the trek, just in case?

Yes, all our tour guides take an oxygen bottle with them along the trail and will provide oxygen as needed.

Where do I have to be on the morning of the trek and where will I be dropped off at the end of the trek?

On the morning of the trek departure, we will pick you up from inside your hotel in Cusco (don’t wait outside in the street) and drop you off either in the Plaza de Regocijos ( next to the main square) or Plaza San Francisco (two blocks from the main square) upon your return to Cusco. You won’t be dropped off directly at your hotel/hostels.

It helps us if you try to stay in a hotel/hostal that is within a few blocks of the Plaza de Armas (Main Square). If your hotel/hostal is far away from the main square we will ask you to come to our offices with the exact location and name of your accommodation. If you are not staying in the city center, we cannot pick you up from your hotel. You must take a taxi to the center.

The guide will come into your hotel and ask for you at reception. Because the centre of Cusco is full of small cobblestone streets, our larger bus/van is not permitted to enter certain zones in the city centre, so you will then have to walk a short distance to where the bus/van will be waiting for you. Traffic regulations prohibit large buses/van from entering the main square but usually after 10pm we don’t have a problem and will be able to drop you off in the main square upon your return. You can then take a taxi back to your hotel (between US$2 to US$4 for a taxi).

If we have to drop you off in Plaza San Francisco, you may be a bit disoriented (some people may need to be woken up!!) but we recommend that you ask for directions to the Plaza de Armas and our guide or driver will be happy to help. It’s only two blocks away, but usually it’ll be quite late at night so it is best to walk together as a group back to the Plaza before taking a taxi or walking back to your hotel.

Do we go to Machu Picchu for sunrise?

Your entrance time to Machu Picchu will depend on when you book your trek. As of July 1, 2017, there are two possible entry times to the site: 6:00 am to 12:00 pm, or 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Your ticket will grant you entry for either the morning or the afternoon—not both. The morning entry is significantly more popular and quickly sells out—unless you book your trek two to three months in advance, we cannot guarantee a morning entry.

If you book far enough in advance to secure a morning entry, you will start to hike up to Machu Picchu at 4:30am, arriving at the site by about 6:00 am—just in time for the sunrise!

Is Machu Picchu entrance ticket included in the price ?

Yes, the Machu Picchu entrance is included in the tour package. However, if you want to add any extra activities like climbing Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, it will cost 20 dollars extra per person, but please note that the 20 dollars is valid only before we book your entrance fees. If for some reason you want to add this extra climb once we have booked the ticket, it will cost you 65 dollars per person.

Are there any hidden costs in the trek?

No, as a company, we do not have any hidden costs which is why we list everything that is not included in our tour on our own website. However, we highly recommend that you take some extra money with you on the trek (about 300 soles, at least). Small bills in soles are recommended.

Are breakfast, lunch and dinner included in the price every day?

Yes, all meals are included except the first breakfast on the first day, and lunch/dinner on the last day.

Is drinking water included in the price?

At meal times we will give you tea, coffee, etc to drink. During the trek, you may have to buy water directly from the local people, which is possible approximately every two hours. Remember that the price of the water will be more expensive than in the city.

How much stuff can we take? Do we carry it ourselves?

We recommend bringing no more than a 35 or 40L backpack to carry your things, as you will carry it yourself on the second day.

Is there a minimum group size and what happens if Inka Trail Backpacker does not meet that minimum size?

We require a minimum group size of just two people. During the last few years, Inka Trail Backpacker has always managed to meet the minimum group size for ALL of our departure dates and has never had to cancel any group departures due to group size.

In the unlikely event that we do not reach the minimum required number of persons, we reserve the right to combine our clients with another trekking company of similar cost.

Is transportation to and from the Cusco airport included?

No, transportation to and from the airport is not included in your tour. Please plan accordingly.
