Description

The Inca trekking trail to Machupicchu is rated among the ten best trekking trails in the world because of the exquisite beauty of it s natural surroundings. These include different ecological areas from the high Andean plains, to the cloud forest an impressive variety of altitudes, climates and ecosystems .You will cross two high altitude passes(The highest being WarmiwaNuska or Death Women pass at 4200m). 

***NOTE: With our PREMIUM system you trek at a leisure pace, camping at more secluded camps , away from the crowds, we run an ecological minded trip by taking out all the garbage including all the human waste.

You will not carry anything , except a small day pack , with your bottle water and camera. 

Also , it is our policy the fair treatment of our staff and porters, providing them with good food , shelter and decent salary. 

The difference between our service and that of other companies , is that the first day we camp near Llactapata a more secluded camp, other Agencies camp at Huayabamba, a small town on the trail , full of people. On the second day those agencies trek up hill all day and in the late afternoon with the last bit of energy, they go over Warmiwanusta pass 4,100 meters ( Dead women pass) , then go down to camp at Pacasmayo, again a crowded camp. With ourselves on the other hand on the second day we trek toward Huayabamba and hike up hill, camping closed to the high pass at a more secluded place , giving you more time to acclimatize . On the third day , fresh after a good night sleep, we hike up for one hour to the high pass and continue the trek all the way to Phuyupatamarca (City Above the Clouds) , the best camp on all inca trail. 

On the early morning you will enjoy a magnificent Sun Rise , since you are on top of the mountain with the clouds below you. On the other hand most companies camp at Winay Wayna, much lower and most of the time that early in the morning is foggy , since they are already in the cloud forest.  The   5th day, fully dedicated to the highlight of the trip MachuPicchu .
