Day 1 Cusco - Tambomachay - Qenko

Starting from the Incan site of Tambomachay, just outside of Cusco, your Incan tour leads over high passes through valleys, small communities, and beautiful mountain lakes. With large areas of grassland and large open lakes, this area is home to a wide variety of birds including Andean Geese, partridges, and lapwings as well as a variety of birds of prey, all of which are regularly spotted throughout the day.

Our goal for today is to go to the village of Qenko, located close to Lake Qoricocha (Golden Water). Qenko is a traditional Andean community; located high above Cusco and the Sacred Valley. The people here still maintain their customs and traditions of ages past. The majority of villagers gain their income from herding llamas and alpacas. As only a few tourists come this way, the people are always intrigued to see who has come to visit their village and to welcome them with open arms.

Day 2 Qenko - Huchuy Qosco - Lamay - Aguas Calientes

Today, has two main focuses, learning about the customs and culture of the Andean people and a visit to the Incan site of Huchuy Qosco. The second day of Incan trek tour starts by waking up early Our guide then takes us to one of the houses where we'll get to meet a local family. The people are incredibly welcoming and are just as eager to learn about you as you are of them. They don't get many visitors in this area and are always interested to find out about you. After the visit, you'll have the opportunity to give the gifts you've brought to the local people and also to buy some of their locally made souvenirs.

Following the visit, we'll make our way to Huchuy Qosco. The route follows the original Inca Trail that leads us down a beautiful, secluded valley that is filled with native plants, flowers, and birds. It really feels like another world compared to the high grasslands we've left behind. In total, it takes about two and a half hours to reach Huchuy Qosco and after a break to rest. Take in the views of the Sacred Valley, you'll have a guided tour of the site to learn about the Incan people and their culture. In the afternoon, we head down into the Sacred Valley to the village of Lamay, where we take a bus to Ollantaytambo and then a train to Aguas Calientes.

 Day 3 Machu Picchu in its Glory!

Waking up early, we'll take the first bus back up to Machu Picchu to enter the site as it opens. We'll have a two hour guided tour of the site during which you'll learn about the Incas and visit the most important areas of the citadel. After your tour, you'll have free time to explore the site by yourself and if you have a permit, you can climb Huayna Picchu while still in Machu Picchu. In the afternoon, you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo from where you will carry on by bus back to Cusco.This is where our Incan trekking adventure of 3 glorious days slowly comes to an end.
