Day 1: Cusco - KM 82 - Ayapata

On the night before your Inca Trail hike, there will be a briefing with your trekking tour guide, at 6:30 p.m. at your hotel. This can be arranged at a different time if needed.  

In the morning of the first day, you will picked you up from your hotel with our private transportation (time depending on your location). You will take a stunning drive to the trailhead KM 82, and see a great view of the Andes along the way.  

Then, you will start the first two and a half hours of the hike. It will be pretty flat until you arrive at the Inca site of Llactapata. You will have the first taste of Incan culture, and learn about the history of Peru. After your first Inca lesson, it will be another hour and a half until we arrive at the lunch stop. After lunch, we will have some time to rest and then continue for another two and a half hours until we reach our first camp at Ayapata.

Great Service

We used AdventureTripr to book classic Inca Trail adventure for our entire family during Sept 2022. Booking process was smooth, AdventureTripr folks were available to answer any questions. Trek was - if anything - even smoother. The outfitter took care of everything for us, we didn't have to worry about a thing while on the trek. I would use AdventureTripr again.


Definitely Recommend!!

Just went to Classic Inca Trail. Had a great experience hiking 3 nights and 4day trail to Machu Picchu. Preeti took care of all the reservations and provided all the necessary information to make our trip successful. I would definitely recommend others to go with adventuretripr for future trips.
