Day 1

Valle Sagrado - Chinchero, Maras, Moray and Ollantaytambo

After picking you up from your hotel we will drive to the Valle Sagrado. Our first stop will be the viewpoint at Chinchero where we will observe Incan agricultural terraces adorning the mountains. Once in Chichero we will visit the main square located in the middle of the town. A colonial church build in the XVIII century and a stone cross dominate the square. Surraonding the main square we wil see Incan buildings probably inhabited by the Inca nobility before the arrival of Spaniars. Our last stop in Chichero will be a community of wavers that still use Incan techniques in their textiles.

We will continue our trip to the Sacred Valley enjoying the beautiful Andean landscapes. Our second stop will be at the archaeological site Moray, an atypical Incan construction probably used as a natural laboratory to acclimate plants. Our next destination will be the salt mines at Maras where salts and minerals coming from springs cover the landscape with a whitish blanket. Then we will drive from Maras to Urubamba to enjoy a peruvian style lunch buffet. Later we will drive to our last stop for day 1, the town of Ollantaytambo. There we will visit the Incan fortress of Ollantaytambo. The hike to the top of Ollantaytambo is a bit steep so it is recommended to take it easy and go slowly. We will visit the ancient temples of the sun and the moon, observe the Qolqas (Inca granaries) and the fountains.

After the tour we will take the train to Machu Picchu town (Ex Aguas Calientes). Upon arrival at Machu Picchu village, a transfer will take you to the hotel. In the evening our guide will stop by the hotel to meet you and give you the details of the next day's program.

Day 2

Machu Picchu

We will go to the station and board the buses to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary. The drive up to the mountain will take approximately 25 minutes. Upon arrival we will have a guided tour aroundthe most important places of the Inca Sanctuary. After the guided tour you will have enough free time to explore, take pictures or if you want to climb the mountain of Waynapicchu (the mountain of Waynapicchu has a limit of 600 people per day. An additional ticket is required. Check for more details below). At the end of the free time you will have to take the bus back to Machu Picchu town for lunch (not included) and take the train back to Cusco.

Warning: you must be at the train station to return to Cusco at least 30 minutes before the train departure time.

The train will return to the Ollantaytambo train station. There we will board our bus to Cusco city. Upon arrival a transfer will take you to your hotel.

Day 3

Rainbow mountain (Palccoyo)

We will travel to Checacupe town (3400 masl), then we go by car to Combapata town and from there to Pallcoyo. Upon arrival we will prepare for a hike of about 2 hours to reach the impressive mountains of Palccoyo, located 5000 m above the sea level. The soil rich in minerals gives this mountain range its colors, that resemble the colors in a rainbow that makes it so special. Then our transportation will take us back to Checacupe where we will have lunch and from there we will return to the city of Cusco.
