Day 4: Urubamba │Aguas Calientes (B)

For serious archaeology buffs, there is time for an optional independent visit to Machu Picchu before the guided tour the following morning. Additional Notes: Please bear in mind that the town has several amenities, but is also geographically remote meaning services are sometimes more basic than one would assume. As the only option for travellers visiting Machu Picchu, the development of infrastructure has happened quite quickly, much without proper planning, and the focus on providing quality service may not be up to the standards experienced in other parts of the country. Those who have chosen the option in advance to hike the 1-day Inca Trail trek will disembark the train at km 104 to begin the hike . The trail rises steeply up into the mountains and will take hikers past the archaeological sites of Wiñay Wayna and Inti Punku, where the local guide will provide insights into the fascinating culture of the Incas in route to the trek's culmination at the Sun Gate. Enjoy a packed lunch along the way and reach the Sun Gate in the late afternoon with a chance for a preliminary exploration of Machu Picchu before the guided tour on Day 5. Transfer by bus from Machu Picchu to Aguas Calientes to rejoin the group and spend the night in a hotel.

If time permits, take an optional visit to the nearby hot springs to soak your sore muscles. 1-day Inca Trail option: Approximate Distance: 12 km Estimated hiking Time: 5-6 hours Transport: Private Vehicle
