Cusco – Km 104 – Wiayhuayna – Aguas Calientes
Our journey starts early in the morning. After our arrival at km 104 by train, the Royal Inca Trail begins with a hike to Chachabamba (2270 m/7448ft), where our guide will inform us about the ancient function of this archaeological site. After this, we will reach Wiayhuayna (2650 m/8694ft), the most important archaeological site besides Machu Picchu. Continuing our trail, the Sun Gate Inti Punku provides a nice viewpoint from which we can enjoy the nightfall on Machu Picchu (2400 m/7874ft). Since we have to continue our walk to our hotel in Aguas Calientes, we will only spend little time in the Sanctuary of Machu Picchu on the first day.
