Ollantaytambo – Piskacucho – Hatunchaca/Wayllambamba

Your Inca Trail trekking guide will hold a briefing in your hotel the evening before the trek starts. This briefing will give you more information about the route and equipment you need to bring. You will also receive your duffel bag (to be carried by the porters) which must not weigh more than 5 kilograms. If you are leaving from Cusco, there will be an early start (around 6am) to travel by bus (with the trek guide and porters) to Kilometre 82 waymarker (2,680 metres above sea level) – the start of the Inca Trail. There will be a short stop at Ollantaytambo to use toilets and buy walking sticks, water and last minute snacks. If you have spent the night in Ollantaytambo it is just a short drive to Kilometre 82. From this point starts approximately a five hour hike through the Sacred Valley along the Urubamba river to reach the campsite in Wayllabamba (9,842 ft.) is a relatively easy, reasonably flat, 4.5-hour, 10-12 kilometre walk. Lunch and dinner are provided.

Warmiwañusca – Pacaymayo

After breakfast, very early (around 5am), today begins with a gradual ascent covering around 2 kilometres, followed by a challenging 7 kilometres constantly uphill (on dirt tracks and stone steps) to reach the highest pass at Warmiwañusca or ‘Dead Woman’s Pass’ (4,200 metres or (13,779 ft.). The views of the mountains and valleys are spectacular as you make your way slowly towards the pass. This section is the most demanding of the whole trail and reaching Dead Woman’s Pass is quite an achievement. Afterwards the trail heads down to the second camp site in Pacay (11,811 ft.). Total hiking time is approximately six to seven hours. Lunch and dinner are provided.
