Huchuy Qosqo To Machu Picchu 3D/2N

0
  • 3 Days 2 Nights
  • Max People : 22
  • Min Age : 12+

This is easily the shortest of the treks and is best suited for those with a limited amount of time, but who would still like to do a bit of trekking before they see Machu Picchu with fantastic views of mountains and the Andes. It is the lowest in altitude (4350 meters) of the 3 alternative treks and also the shortest in distance (17 kilometers) but still sees some great examples of Inca Stairs and other Inca ruins along the way. As there are only 2 days of trekking, you will only camp for one night and then sleep in our Hotel on the next night. Huchuy Qosqo (small Cusco) is situated above the Valley of Urubamba and offers very spectacular views over the mountain range Cordillera de Vilcanota. This trek is also a great way for you to enjoy a shorter trek that still includes Machu Picchu and Inca trails (with Inca stairs that are better than the Inca Trail). You will have one night camping in the wilderness and then the very next night will be spent a night in the beautiful town, Aguas Calientes”
