Today we will gather in Cuzco, CUS, Peru. After making their way to the Milhouse Backpackers & Hotel and checking in, guests may spend the day however they choose. There is a mandatory pre-departure briefing today (please see in Stop Note).

Day 2 Cuzco - Lares - Wakawasi (14000m, 5 hours approx)

In the morning we will take a bus to Lares, CUS. From here, we will begin our 6-hour trek to the tiny village of Wakawasi. There, we will have the unique opportunity to meet local people who live in this beautiful area.

Day 3 Wakawasi - Patacancha (5562 km)

We will start the day with an uphill 4-hour hike over Ipsayccocha Pass. After lunch, we will continue on for 3 more hours to Patacancha, CUS where we will camp for the night.

Day 4 Patacancha - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes (50 km)

Today, we will make a visit to a local school (weekdays only) to learn about the education system of the Peruvian Highlands. Then we will walk for 4 more hours to Ollantaytambo, CUS for lunch. From there, we will take a train to Aguas Calientes, CUS, where we will spend the night.

Day 5 Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Ollantaytambo - Cuzco (110 km)

We will catch one of the first buses to Machu Picchu so that we may see the early morning light over this amazing place. After a two-hour walking tour, guests will have time to explore on their own.
