Pick up at your hotel at 4:30 am and transfer to the train station, to board the train that takes us to km 104. Throughout the route we can appreciate colourful landscapes, surrounded by mountains and local settlers making their daily labour in the fields. After 3.5 hours we arrive at Km. 104, starting point of our trek. At the beginning our permits are checked and then we visit the archaeological complex of Chachabamba. Afterwards we walk through cloud forest, ascending the footpath towards Wiñay Wayna (2660 m), where we arrive in approximately 4 hours. After a guided visit of the site we continue our route to the sungate, from where we have a first view of Machu Picchu. We then continue to Aguas Calientes, where we spend the night at a Hostal (DWB).
