From there, we will ascend gradually for about three hours towards the captivating archaeological site of Wiñayhuayna, at 2,650 m. As we learn about the site, we will eat lunch there and delight in its charm.

After our break, we will continue through the semi-tropical forest in the direction of Intipunku (the Sun Gate) where we will enjoy the first panoramic view of Machu Picchu’s citadel. We will spend some time here truly appreciating the impressive mountains and deep valleys that surround the Sun Gate as well as the Urubamba River. Then, we will walk for 45 more minutes until we arrive at the check point at Machu Picchu. After enjoying Machu Picchu, we will spend the night in Aguas Calientes.
