Day by day summary of the Inca Trail 5 days Tour

Day 1: Cusco – KM 82 – Wayllabamba
Start in your hotel at 5.00 am, drive to Km 82, Breakfast, and begin the Inca Trail hiking along the Urubamba and Cusichaca river banks. You will visit local villages and important archeological sites such as Willkaraykay, Patallacta, and Wayllabamba.

Day 2: Wayllabamba – Dead Woman’s Pass – Pacaymayo
Wake up with a coffee in your tent and get ready to hike to the highest point on the Inca trail, Warmiwañusca or Dead Woman’s Pass, at 4215 m.a.s.l; the hike is challenging and yet very enjoyable with spectacular views of the mountains. 

Day 3: Pacaymayo – Runcu Raccay – Phuyupatamarca
Start the day conquering the second and last mountain for Runkurakay at 4000 m.a.s.l while visiting the archeological sites of Runkurakay, Sayacmarca, Conchamarka, and enter into the cloud forest. Camp with the best view of the Andes mountain ranges.

Day 4: Phuyupatamarca – Sungate – Machu Picchu – Aguas Calientes
Wake up with the sunrise over the Andes; this is the most beautiful day of the trek, visiting several archaeological sites: Phuyupatamarka, Intipata, Wiñaywayna, Sungate, and finally arrive at Machu Picchu in the afternoon and see the great citadel almost empty. Spend the night in a 3-star hotel.

Day 5: Machu Picchu (The Lost City of The Incas) – Cusco
Take the early buses to Machu Picchu and explore with your tour guide the most important places; before leaving the citadel, you will have time to explore yourself. After lunch, board the Vistadome train back to Ollantaytambo and then a private van back to Cusco.

Our group of four adults had the most memorable experience with Trexperience. We couldn't have asked for better guides -- JJ and Filio. Without them and their amazing team we wouldn't have felt more at ease on this trip. We had nightly massages followed by wine and incredible gourmet food. The tents and the accommodations were 5-star! We were definitely glamping to say the least but it was worth every penny. Although our hike to Machu Picchu was fogged in along the route, when we reached Machu Picchu the fog drifted away and we were left with incredible unforgettable views! TreXperience responded promptly to our emails and communicated to us in a timely manner. The company is trustworthy and worth investing in. It's a trip of a lifetime so don't skimp on the opportunity to do it luxury style!

This was one of the best experiences of my life! I am seventy years old and have had many wonderful experiences but this one rate very high in comparison. The organization of TreXperience was outstanding, the porters very good, the cooks exceptional, and the two guides were very friendly, knowledgeable, compassionate and were focused on the needs of every individual in the group.

We had an amazing time on our 4 day inca trail hike. JJ was a great guide and the entire company worked incredibly hard to make us feel comfortable. Would fully recommend this trip.
