We did the Machu Picchu 4 days tour in august 2011, and we were very happy with everything! Our guide Ramiro and Carlos from Best Andes Travel came to our hostel in Cuzco a couple of days before we were to go on the tour, and here they explained us about the tour, what we had to bring, the route and so on. Everything worked out fine and we felt that they knew what they were doing. All in all we are happy to recommend Best Andes Travel to any one who wants to do the Inca Trail.

Day 1

Cusco- Km. 82 -Wayllabamba

We hike along rolling hills in the Vilcanota River Valley passing by several small archaeological sites along the
way. Lunch will be prepared half-way and you will have time to relax before reaching Wayllabamba camp (2,980m). (11 km trek; 6 hour duration)..

  • Lunch & dinner

Day 2

Wayllabamba – Pacaymayu

Today we hike up to the ominously named Dead Woman’s Pass at 4,215m. We will take our time and rest as much as we feel necessary as there is a fair bit of ascent up to the pass don’t worry though because there is no shortage of breathtaking view. At Dead Woman’s Pass you will be rewarded with spectacular views of nearby snow-capped mountain peaks and roaring waterfalls. We will then make our way down to Pacaymayo Camp (3,660m) to enjoy the scenery. After we have arrived at our camp we then spend the late afternoon early evening relaxing soaking up the culture and listening to the sounds of the nearby waterfalls. (3,660m) (10 km trek; 7 hour
duration)..

  • Breakfast, lunch & dinner

Day 3

Pacaymayu – Wiñayhuayna

An unforgettable journey along ancient Inca stairways, mountain lakes, intriguing archaeological sites and lush jungle. We then make our way up to Runquracay Pass (3,950m) where you can climb to the summit of your first mountain in Peru to discover a 360 panoramic like no other. In the afternoon we will then explore archaeological sites called Sayacmarca & Phuyupatamarca with our local guide and by late afternoon you will reach Wiñayhuayna High Jungle camp (2,650m) set above a deep gorge surrounded by rain forest. After dinner, we have the hardest task of saying a big THANK YOU to our porters for their invaluable contribution to our journey. (15 km, 9 hours duration)..

  • Breakfast, lunch & dinner

Day 4

Wiñayhuayna – Machu Picchu – Cusco

A unique and magnificent experience today as we wake up before the sunrise. We trek for about an hour to
reach the famous Inti-Punku “Sun Gate” to glimpse the first sights of Machu Picchu, truly a once-in-a-lifetime
unforgettable experience. We continue down the final length of the trail to reach the wondrous Machu Picchu
archaeological complex perched delicately on the top of the sacred Machu Picchu Mountain. (7 km; 2 hours
duration). We make a transfer back to Cusco for a celebratory meal.

  • Breakfast & dinner

Thank you for organising our trip so well. You did a great Job. The bus trip to La Paz worked out well, however, I cannot recommend anyone to stay in La Paz. It is not a pretty city and there is not much to see!!
Under which website can I register with Trip Adviser? I will definitely give you a superb report as you made our stay in Peru a huge success!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get the permit?

We purchase your permit for you. At the time we confirm your participation on this Machu Picchu trip, we register your complete name and your passport number (as these appear on your trip application) with park authorities on the official trek permit. The trek permit is a legal document with specific restrictions limiting changes. You must bring this same passport with you on the trek. If for whatever reason you cannot bring the passport that is registered on the permit at the time of your original booking, or if you change your passport and cannot bring the original document, or if the information you originally supplied differs from what actually appears on your passport, park authorities may refuse access to the Inca Trail.

How far in advance should I book?

We suggest you book the trip as far in advance as possible to secure your permits, as soon as you are certain of your travel plans. The required permits to trek on the Inca Trail are limited to 500 people per day. This includes all guides, porters, cooks & support staff, which leaves about 250 available for trekkers. Permits sell out very fast, 5 to 6 months prior to departure during the busy season (Apr-Sep), and otherwise 4 months in advance. 

If permits are sold out, can I get onto a wait-list?

No, there are no waitlists, cancellation policies, etc. Once permits are sold out, that’s it. No person, no company worldwide will have permits; travel companies are not able to block or hold space, nor can you show up at the gate and purchase a permit. All permits are sold on a first-come/first-served basis, are non-negotiable, non-transferable, non-refundable.

However, we have several wonderful alternate treks available that do not require permits. Please consiider one of these as an alternative.

How do I prepare for the high altitude?

So that you have sufficient time to acclimate prior to starting the Machu Picchu tour, we strongly recommend that you arrive in Cuzco or similar elevation for a minimum of two days prior to the trek. This is a 45-km/28-mile trek with a maximum elevation close to 4,200 m/14,000 ft.
