This is the most rewarding adventure to visit Machu Picchu in a short time; you will hike on one of the nicest parts of the Inca trail entering Machu Picchu by way of “Intipunku” or “The Gate to the Sun” the same way the ancient Incas did.
The Classic Inca trail to Machu Picchu is the most popular trek in South America: It combines a gratifying physical challenge with the opportunity to visit magnificent Inca remains only reachable by foot in the midst of unparallel natural beauty.
This trek is designed for people who enjoy the outdoors and physical challenge of hiking over high passes with unparallel rewards of spectacular views while visiting rare archaeological sites. One of our best treks!
This trek originally designed as an alternative trek to the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, turned out to be a favourite one for many people. The authenticity of the environment and outstanding beauty makes this trek very special.
All our trips begin with a Sacred Valley active tour on our way to Machu Picchu; the ideal way to acclimatize and prepare for this fabulous experience. We overnight at a hotel in Aguas Calientes to next morning catch an early bus to reach Machu Picchu in time to enjoy the most amazing sunrise and an in depth tour of the site.
Upon arrival from Lima or Cuzco, reception and transfer to the Tambopata river port in Puerto Maldonado. Puerto Maldonado is situated at the confluence of the mighty Madre de Dios and Tambopata Rivers and is a bustling, booming tropical frontier town.
