Upon arrival we will pass a checkpoint and cross the Vilcanota River over a bridge. Passing to the other side of the bridge we will be able to observe the Inca Architectural Ensemble of Chachabamba. Very much in the style of the Inca empire, this was an important place, dedicated to spiritual activities. It also assumed the secondary function of checkpoint, guarding access to the citadel of Machu Picchu.

From Chachabamba, we will go up the side of the mountain, passing through some forests, varied flora, streams and a beautiful waterfall. After enjoying the waterfall we will continue our walk until we reach the Wiñay Huayna Inca Architectural Complex. Here we will take a tour of the place with our guide who will give us more details about this place.

After visiting this place we will continue our walk for two hours until we reach the second control. After passing the control we will arrive at the famous stairs of 50 steps that are the final stretch of the walk and lead us to the Inti Punku or Portal del Sol where you can get a complete panoramic view of the citadel of Machu Picchu.

After enjoying this beautiful view we will board the bus that will take us to the town of Aguas Calientes. Upon arrival at the town we will take you to your hotel so you can rest. If you wish, you can visit the thermal baths or tour this rustic town.
