Day 1: Day 1: Cuzco - Rafca - Socma - Perolniyoc - Rayanniyoc (L/D)

Stop At: Inca Trail, Machu Picchu Peru
We will pick you up around 6:00 am from your Cuzco accommodation, and drive towards the town of Rafca (2800m). Then we continue driving for another 30 minutes until we arrive at the village of Socma (3000m), the starting point of our trek. There, we meet the muleteer that will join us during the hike. After a short break and packing our things, we will begin trekking towards the Inca site of Perolniyoc (3200m). After about 2 hours and a half, we will reach Perolniyoc for lunch, and visit the beautiful waterfall as well as the archaeological ruins that lie at the top of the valley. We will go on for another 30 minutes until we arrive at Rayan-Niyoc (3,600m). Here we will get settled in and have dinner, then camp overnight in a cold climate.

Day 2: Day 2: Rayanniyoc - Inti Punku - Choquetacarpo (B/L/D)

Stop At: Inca Trail, Machu Picchu Peru
Wake early today for a hearty breakfast before a challenging trek to reach our first high pass of the trek, located at 4,400 meters above sea level with breathtaking mountain vistas. This area is still cultivated by the local people despite the high altitudes and we will see local people caring for their fields. After walking about 4 hours, we will reach the pass, stopping to take in the panorama and catching our breath. We will stop at a camp for lunch around 4,300m and then continue hiking to reach a second high pass of 4,500m, the highest point of the trek. Enjoy spectacular views of the valley below before heading down for about 3 hours to a site the Incas called Inti Punku (meaning Sun Gate), which also offers imposing views over the valley and the Veronica mountain rising over the horizon.
