At the hot springs, you may relax in its waters (30ºC- 35ºc), and afterwards we will have lunch. Soon after lunch we will start to hike towards Wacawasi, a small community located at 3600 m. a. s. l. (11810 Ft). The hike to Wacawasi will take about 3 hours and the trail is a bit steep. Upon our arrival we will take a good rest in our tents, and then we will join our guide for dinner we’ll camp next to one local house. Finally we will go to rest in our tents.
On this second day, we will get up early for breakfast and then will start to ascend a steep path for about 3 or 4 hours till we reach an elevation of 4350 m. (14435 Ft). Along the way you will enjoy one of the most amazing Andean sceneries, as we will walk along huge mountain slopes and will walk across little farming areas, where natives still employ traditional ways of life, a place where Spanish is a second language, and where Andean men still live in harmony with the mother nature. We will stop at a nice spot for lunch, and we will start to descend towards Patacancha, a small village located at 3800 m (1246 Ft). Here we will pitch up the tents and then will have dinner with the group at local house. Overnight at the Patacancha campsite.
On this day, we will have to get up early too, and after breakfast we will continue descending, passing the community of Willoq, colorful villages that stand out for preserving a culture alive, a natural zone where Andean families still produce their own clothing, rear their own animals and believe in their own gods. After a long walk of about 4 hours, we will reach the village of Ollantaytambo, located at 2850 m. (9350 Ft). At the village of Ollantaytambo we will have lunch and afterwards you will have free time to explore this great Inca settlement. In the evening we will catch the train towards the town of AguasCalientes (town of Machupìcchu). AguasCalientes is a popular resting place for those who do the Lares Trek, here you may recover in the hostel provided by our Agency, or go up to relax at the Hot Springs (thus it’s name AguasCalientes) located on the upper section of the town. AguasCalientes has developed quite well in the last years, thus, today you can find here internet access, bunch of restaurants and pubs, ATM machines and souvenirs shops utterly everywhere. Overnight at the designated hostel at AguasCalientes.
After breakfast we will start to go up walking – 1 and a half hours to the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, (It is a good idea to go to the ruins early, as there are no many people, only a few groups, the ruins get very busy at around 11:00 am, when other trains arrive with more visitors). Once here, our guide will show us the most important sectors of this great Inca City. The guided tour in Machu Picchu will last about 2 hours, and afterwards you will have free time to explore the ruins on your own, and if you wish, you might climb the Wayna Picchu Mountain, the huge mountain that appears on the background in every classic picture of Machu Picchu. It takes about one hour or so to get to the top, following very steep stairs, though is a little hard, at the top you will be rewarded with one of the most impressive views in your lifetime. Later on, we will take the bus down to AguasCalientes, where we have free time for having lunch and also where we catch the train back Ollantaytambo (02 hours) and from here by bus to Cusco (1 ½ hour).Cusco approximately 10:50 p.m.
