Itinerary

Day 1Cusco - Maras - Moray - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes

We will be picking you up at 0830 in the morning from your hotel in Cusco. Then we will drive you through Chicheros to Maras. 

The village of Maras is home to the famous Salt Mines. The salt pools clinging to the slopes of the canyon have been in use since Pre Inca times. People here still practice the traditional solar evaporation methods.

They let in the spring water and wait for it to evaporate. When it does, it leaves behind crystals of salts that they manually scrape out. Maras Salt is pinkish in color and has a distinct taste.

We will then continue to Moray. The Incas were so devoted to farming, that they built an agricultural laboratory here. The Amphitheatre-like circular terraces of Moray bear different temperatures at each level. 

This helped the Incas to experiment and find the ideal condition needed to farm each crop. Our tour guide will be giving you a detailed tour of these sites. 

We will then drive you to Urubamba where we will be stopping at a local restaurant for lunch. After relishing a typical Andean lunch, we will be driving you to Ollantaytambo. 

Here you will be boarding a train to Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu town. The one and a half hours journey offer captivating views of Andean highland regions dotted with farmlands and villages. 

In Aguas Calientes, we will be accommodating you in a three-star hotel for the night.

Day 2Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco

Early in the morning, after breakfast, we will be taking the 25 minutes bus ride up the hill to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Our tour guide will assist you in passing through the security control here.

Please note that it is imperative that you carry your original passport which will be verified against your ticket to let you enter. 

Machu Picchu Tour:

Once inside the citadel, you will be witnessing the glorious rays of the sun beaming its light on the walls of the Inca citadel. Our local expert will begin the tour with a brief introduction to the Inca civilization.

On this two hours guided tour to Machu Picchu, we will be visiting the strategic parts of the citadel. The plaza de Armas,  remains the Inca temples and royal quarters, a ceremonial center, and more Inca ruins. After this immersive tour, you will have some free time to explore the citadel on your own.

If you have permits to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, our tour guide will be directing you to the respective trailhead. Alternatively, you can hike to the Sungate. This is the point through which those hiking the esteemed Inca Trail to Machu Picchu enter Machu Picchu from. 

You wont need any permits to visit the sun gate nor does it have any cost. It offers a panoramic view of the citadel. 

After your trip to Machu Picchu, you will be taking the bus back to Aguas Calientes. You will have some free time here. You can stop for lunch at a local restaurant or take a saunter through the narrow cobblestoned streets rimmed with markets selling souvenirs.
