On this day! Guide will wake you up with a coca tea served at the door of your tent ” room service” to start this long day of trekking, after breakfast with the help of the sun god we will see the impressive snow mountain of Salcantay smiling down at you (or laughing depending how you feel at it ) little by little we will climb higher until arriving soyrococha where we take a short rest and try to catch our breath. then we keep walking up until reaching to the highest point of Salcantay mountain at an altitude (4600 masl ) here , the guide explain a little bit about the history of Salcantay mountain and the history of the Incas civilization , good excuse to break and to eat some snacks . after taking a break at highest point of the trek it is time to leave the altitude and we will begin walking down for about 2:00 hours until we see the kitchen tent in order to enjoy our delicious lunch and some tea or coffee the day is not over yet and we will continue hiking down to lower land and altitudes until we reach the second camp site, chaullay, this campsite is very lovely because the beer tastes even better !!! DAY 03 : CHAULLAY – LA PLAYA SAYHUYACO – SANTA TERESA: this day is much easier day, walking mostly downhill for about 4 hours until reaching to Lluscamayo where we will stop for having lunch also we will notice the climate is becoming much warmer because we are in the high jungle known as (ceja de selva) in this part, there are many small plantations such as coffee beans, coca, bananas if we are lucky we can see ” gallito de las rocas ” ( cock of the rocks) which is Peru’s national bird if If we have time we will also be able to take a refreshing shower under a waterfall. In the afternoon we will walk for about 3 hours to our final campsite just outside the small village of La Playa (the Beach) at the much lower altitude of 1800m.

Early after a good breakfast re-live the history and the mysterious world of the Incas, we take the first bus up at approx 05.30am and arrive at the ruins at 06.15am. This time is still not so crowded so we take advantage of the tranquility of this sacred site ; Guided Tour of Machupicchu. This enigmatic city is explored for Approx 2 hrs and their mysteries and archaeological information will be explained by your expert guide, ( you generally have approx 6 hrs extra free time but depends on train timetables in high season.) Option to climb to the Huayna Picchu mountain ( Please check previously with your guide. Sometimes guided tour is after Huaynapicchu.) Machu Picchu is a magical, mysterious place that for nearly a century has intrigued archaeologists and visitors alike. Perched atop a steep, emerald green peak 8,000 feet high in the Andes in southern Peru, it is reachable only by a long road that zigzags up the slope from the roaring Urubamba river, or by hiking four days along the challenging Inca Trail. One can imagine the excitement when intrepid Yale professor-explorer Hiram Bingham, led there by local peasants in 1911, first glimpsed the jungle-invaded citadel abandoned by the Incas four centuries earlier.Bingham eagerly surveyed the site over the next five years, clearing away brush and identifying palaces, temples, and a celestial observatory from what is believed to have been a summer palace or ceremonial center for the first Incan emperor, Pachakuteq. Most of its gold and other treasures had been looted around the time of the Spanish conquest, but he unearthed thousands of artifacts and carted them off to New Haven to study. The Incas built their mysterious city here to be closer to the gods. It was placed so high in the clouds, that the conquering Spaniards never found or destroyed it. Visitors to Machu Picchu see well-preserved ruins hidden among the majestic Andes: palaces, baths, temples, tombs, sundials and farming terraces, along with llamas that roam among hundreds of gray granite houses.
