Day 1: Cusco – Mollepata (Marcoccasa) – Soraypampa (L, D)
At 5:30am you will be picked up from your luxury hotel in private transport to take you to the beginning of your alternative Inca Trail trek. You will pass the village of Mollepata (3000m) before heading towards Marcoccasa (3400m) where we will meet your private guides and porters before heading off on the trek. From here our trek begins winding through an amazing valley while surrounded by the snow-capped peaks of Humantay (5217m) and Salkantay (6264m). In the afternoon we will reach your luxury campsite at the scenic site of Soraypampa (3700m). Here you will enjoy a buffet dinner prepared by high class chefs in a spacious dining tent. Along with dinner you will receive champagne and wine to help you unwind from your strenuous day. After dinner you enjoy your first night sleeping under the tranquility of the Andes’ sky in your cozy, homey tents.
Day 2: Sorayapampa – Salkantay Pass – Challway (B, L, D)
After an early breakfast featuring hot tea and coffee you will begin your second day of trekking towards Machu Picchu. This is a challenging day as you will hike towards the Salkantay Pass (4600m). All day you will have spectacular views of the towering snow covered peak of Salkantay (6264m). As we continue on the trail you will notice an increasing abundance and diversity in lush, colorful vegetation endemic of the area. By the time we get to our campsite at Challway (3000m) you will be enjoying the warm climate of the tropical forest. Tonight you will enjoy a gourmet dinner, wine, and champagne amongst rich greenery, colorful flowers, and unfortunately a good amount of mosquitos, so don’t forget your repellent!
Day 3: Challway – Wiñaypoco – La Playa (B, L, D)
Following an early, nourishing breakfast, you will begin the most beautiful day of the trek where you will see the region’s magnificent flora and sprawling plantations. Our trek descends into a thick cloud forest that will surround you with orchids, bromelains, and other amazing local flora. After exiting the thick forest, we will come upon a secluded valley filled with expansive coffee, cacao and fruit plantations. Our path takes us through the farming villages of Wiñaypoco (2650m) and La Playa (2100m) where you will encounter local families and get a chance to speak to them and learn about their lifestyle. Tonight we will camp in the warm village of Lay Playa where you will enjoy your last gourmet dinner, and hot showers on the trail.
Day 4: La Playa – Llactapata – Aguas Calientes (B, L, D)
In the morning after breakfast we will follow an uphill trail towards the ruins of Llactapata (2650m). From this site you will have a great view of the distant Machu Picchu Mountain and will be surrounded by lush greenery and bright flora. After enjoying the ruins and the vast view, we will head down to the hydroelectric station (1950m) where the train to Aguas Calientes stops. At the train stop you have the option of taking the train the rest of the way (for an added cost) or finishing the trek to Agaus Calientes (2050m).
