After about 2 hours of hiking we will arrive to Huchuy Qosqo. We will visit the archaeological center of Huchuy Cusco and finally descend for approximately 3 hours surrounded by the impressive hills of the Sacred Valley.
We will take our lunch in Lamay, a small town that is not crowded by tourists and then approach the local service to the train station of Ollantaytambo, here we will board the train that will take us to Aguas Calientes where we will spend the night.

DAY 3: MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO - MACHU PICCHU - CUSCO.

We will get up early in the morning to begin our ascent to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu which we can do by walking or taking the buses that go from the city of Machu Picchu to the archaeological site of Machu Picchu. Once we have entered Machu Picchu we will have a guided tour for approximately 2 hours, then we will have time to explore the archaeological center on our own and take souvenir photos.

BASTIAN C

Desde el momento en que me contacté con ellos para hacer consulta sobre los tour, hasta el momento de finalizar el tour, tuvieron muy buena disposición a contestar mis preguntar con mucha amabilidad, preocupándose siempre de que estuviéramos disfrutando. Tomamos el tour "SALKANTAY - MACHU PICCHU 5D" y quedamos maravillados con el paisaje, las historias que nos contaba el guía que nos acompañó y las artesanías que encontramos en algunos lugares. 100% recomendado
