After a few hours walking, breathing fresh air and observing nature, we will arrive at the Wiñayhuayna archaeological complex (2650 m/8694 f), which in Quechua means “forever young” and has a height of 2680 meters above sea level and is considered one of the most attractive sites on this tour and the most important archaeological site before reaching Machu Picchu.

This walk includes a box lunch (cold lunch). Please note that you will need to carry your own box lunch during the hike in your backpack.

After recharging our energy, we will continue our walk for an hour and a half until we reach Intipunku (Puerta del Sol) where you can enjoy the first panoramic views of Machu Picchu. (2400m / 7874f).

Since we have to continue our hike and descend  to our hotel in Aguas Calientes, we will only spend a little time at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary on the first day and descend to Aguas Calientes by bus to rest and get ready for the following day

We will get up and after breakfast, our guide will meet you at your hotel to take you to the bus station to take the buses to Machupicchu, after 25 minutes ride, you will arrive to the citadel.
