We will pick you up in your hotel at 1:45pm and will visit the city and nearby archaeological sites. The first place to visit is Qoricancha (temple of the sun). This is one of the finest specimens of ancient architecture, an Inca temple. Then we go to the Convent of Santa Domingo. Continuing to the archaeological site of Sacsayhuaman, one of the magnificent buildings of Inca megalithic style of architecture that only the gods could allow construction to achieve such perfection of art. Next, the holy Q’enqo, also full of many sacred carvings that mystify, only to be understood by ancient Andeans. Then we visit the walls of Puca Pucara, with unique designs show the authority and control this site once possessed. Finally, Tambomach’ay, the temple dedicated to the water, exposes its sources of crystal clear water giving us a majestic farewell to return to the city of Cusco.

Each year Cusco celebrates the Inca Festival of the Sun “Inti Raymi” and this year you get to experience this.  This is a tribute the the Sun God Inti.  This modern re-enactment of the Inca’s retains its majestic glory, with the procession of ancient mummies and an animal sacrifice re-enactment.  The day starts off downtown Cusco in front of the Inca Temple of the Sun – Korikancha watching the arrival of the four suyos of the Inca Empire.  Then you will head off to Saqsayhuman for the final part.  Thousands of people come to watch this amazing festival.  You’ll be amazed at the dancing, the costumes and the ritual.

Hotel in Agaus Calinetes

Day 5:  Wednesday: June 27, 2018 – Machu Picchu

Today we will head to Machu Picchu.  After breakfast we will catch the bus from Aguas Calientes to Machupicchu.  We will take the first bus to Macchu Picchu getting us there before others and being the first enjoying the Sunrise, also well rested and relaxed and with full of energy for climb Huayna Picchu mountain or Machupicchu mountain if you decide it.

Machu Picchu is an incredible spectacle of architecture, culture, and history. Machu Picchu is special, and watching the sun break the mountains and illuminate the city of stone is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The setting for the ancient city is absolutely stunning, and the feeling of reaching it by foot over 5 days of such intense physical exertion and the swath of rugged terrain that you’ve since left behind makes the entire moment of standing atop Macchu Picchu much more rewarding than had you simply taken a train from Cusco and then a bus to the top.

We will also be hiking up Huayna Picchu, the famous little mountain that sits inside of Machu Picchu.  There is a very limited number of entrance tickets for this so make sure to book early to secure you spot on this.  If you book after it sells out you will get to enjoy Machu Picchu while the others hike do this.  (Ok, so here’s the deal with Huayna Picchu. Only 400 people who purchased the entrance tickets in advance can climb Huayna Picchu, 200 hundred people at 7:00 am and other 200 hundred at 10:00 am.)

We wil be taking a train back to Cusco for our last night of the trip.

Day 6:  Thursday: June 28, 2018 – Rainbow Mountain

We will pick you up from your hotel around 4:30am – 5:30am and head south through the town of Urco to the Checacupe District 

(2 hours by bus) and then follow the path to Pitumarca where we’ll have breakfast. Then we continue along the road through small 
villages until we arrive to the community of Hanchipata – Quesiuno (1 hour and 20 minutes by bus), the ideal starting point to walk 
the route. We will see incredible mountains such as Ausangate, beautiful blue lagoons, and many other natural sites. The walk to 
Vinicunca (Rainbow Mountain) will last approximately 3 hours. At this peak we will savour the view for about an hour taking photos 
of the beautiful scenery before descending the path and returning to our bus. We will go back to Pitumarca to have lunch and then 
we’ll be on our way to Cusco.
