The Peruvian government made some new rules to protect the Inca trail. There are only 500 persons a day allowed on doing the Inca trail (including the guides, porter and cooks that will come with you for the 2 or 4 days trail). Because of these new rules it's highly recommended to book your Inca trail 60 to 90 days in advance. If you booked your Inca trail you need to pay the trek deposit in advance. Otherwise we will not be able to buy your trek permit. Once we have bought your permit for the Inca trail it's not possible to change the date of your departure, or to change the passport number. At this moment it's not allowed to climb the Wayna Picchu Mountain for persons that are on the Inca trail. Please notice that the Lares- and Salkantay trail, with Machu Picchu included, are always possible.
Day 1:Inca Trail to Machu Picchu (Wiñaywayna-Aqua calientes )

After you crossed the river you will be visiting the famous Inca site of Chachabamba. After an introduction of the Inca history you will start walking a trail of roughly 8 km. After 3 hours of walking you will reach the archaeological site of Wiñaywayna (2650 m). Winaywayna is also known as the second most impressive archaeological site after Machu Picchu. This fantastic place is a perfect example of Inca terrace farming, and it was probably an experimental laboratory for agricultural purposes in Inca times.The name Wiñaywayna means ´forever young´.After walking around this beautiful place you will continue your trek by crossing the rain forest, thru a narrow path, until you reach Inti Punku (Sun Gate). At this point you will have a great view over the most impressive place: Machu Picchu. After a break we will continue by bus to Aguas Calientes where you will spend the night. This evening you can visit and relax at the hotspings that are located at the upper section of Aguas Calientes.
