Machu Picchu

Inca Trail Challenge One Day

One Day Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu? Is it possible?
Machu Picchu, one of the new seven wonders of the world, is high on the list of dream destinations for everyone.
There are several ways to reach this wonderful site, you can choose to take the 4-day classic Inca Trail, 5-day Salkantay Trek, Lares Trek or other treks to reach this place, at the same time you can choose to take the train and the bus (the easiest way), however, there are many outdoor adventure enthusiasts who want to do the multi-day treks, but cannot due to limited time, so this Machu Picchu 1-day trek is perfect. For them, where you do not miss anything on the short Inca Trail of 2 days, that is, it is the same path, only that the walk can be a little more demanding than normal.

Here we pass through the first checkpoint “Chachabamba”. We then begin a moderate three-hour ascent to the magnificent archaeological site of Wiñayhuayna (2,650 m / 8,747 ft). Once we arrive, you will be able to enjoy the spectacular views of the Urubamba canyon and the sacred river, impressive Inca sites and the connection to the traditional four-day Inca Trail.

After having had time to enjoy the delicious lunch and also the beautiful views, we continue our trek to Inti Punku “the Gate of the Sun” (2,730 m / 9,007 ft). From there we will have the first spectacular and complete view of Machu Picchu considered one of the seven best tourist attractions in the world. After enjoying the view, we will descend for about an hour to the city of Machu Picchu. Once there we will visit this incredible show seeing all the knowledge that the Inkas used to build this wonderful place respecting the Pachamama “Mother Earth”.
A 2-hour guided tour takes you into the fascinating history of these mysterious Inca cities. After that, you will have plenty of time to continue exploring Machu Picchu, time to enjoy the sunset in Machu Picchu.
