First day trek will take you along the most impressive stretch of the Inca Trail. We will start hiking upwards for about 8 km, even trail is well established for the trekkers, there are still stairs and the hike is mostly upwards.

On the way up we will visit beautiful Inca sites, a variety of flora and fauna and get to take the look of the fantastic panoramas of the Andes Mountains. After our upwards climb, we arrive at the Incas site Wiñay Wayna called ’’Forever Young’’ at 2680m/8792ft altitude. Reasonably the Wiñay Wayna ruins are called most impressive site of the 2 day Inca Trail. This is an impressive complex made up of an agricultural center with terraces, a religious sector and an urban sector.

After a box lunch and some free time at Wiñay Wayna ruins we will then continue for about one hour further onto “Inti Punku” – “The Sun Gate” at 2730 m/8792 ft. altitude. This is the spot from where you will get to see the first glimpse of wonderful Machu Picchu! We will head down to get into Machu Picchu Citadel for a short walk around, to take pictures! The daylight of that time called “best light for the shooting”.
