Short Inca Trail Hike

The short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or 2 days Inca Trail is the best option for all those who want to enjoy the experience of walking through this sacred trail to Machu Picchu, but have a tight schedule or physical fitness to tackle the entire journey.

The alternative that we propose has only 12 km/7.5 miles of route and crosses one of the most beautiful places of the whole Inca Trail, the archaeological complex of Wiñay Wayna. As we walk along this mystical Inca trail we will discover a great variety of flora and fauna of the Andean zone, until we reach Machu Picchu Pueblo (Aguas Calientes) and rest before our visit to one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

2 days Inca Trail Itinerary

Day 1. Cusco – Km104 – Machu Picchu (Sacred Valley, Wiñay Wayna & Aguas Calientes)

We take the early morning Backpacker train from Cusco through the picturesque Sacred Valley to KM104, where where we begin the short Inca Trail. Our hike continues gently upward for approximately four hours until we reach the beautifully situated Inca complex of Wiñay Wayna, where we stop to eat a nutritious and plentiful bag lunch.

Sub-tropical flora and fauna will surround us as we continue 2 hours to the Sun Gate (Inti Punku, in quechua) from where we can see Machu Picchu. We walk down past the majestic ruins, then take the bus to Aguas Calientes to spend a relaxing night in a comfortable hostal.

Distance: 12 Kilometers/7.5 Miles

Day 2. Machu Picchu – Cusco

After an early morning rise and breakfast, we take the short bus ride up to the Machu Picchu complex, where we will tour the amazing architecture and mysterious temples left by the Incas.

A professional english-speaking guide will accompany us during the visit and will help us understand the sophisticated ideas and technology of this highly-advanced culture. Once the official tour is completed, we will have plenty of time to explore the Sanctuary on our own before returning to Cusco by train in the afternoon.

As you can see the level of difficulty of the Inca Trail 2 days is not very demanding. The hikers will travel a distance of 7.5 miles, a stretch with not too much altitude. Therefore, it is the ideal option for those travelers who want to hike the Inca Trail, do not have much time available and are not in good physical shape.
