Summary of the Premium Tour Short Inca Trail to Machu Picchu!

The 2-day Short Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu is a unique opportunity for those who may not have as much time to trek the full Inca Trail. This trek combines the highlights of the 4-day Classic Inca Trail, with some of the most beautiful Inca ruins located in the dense vegetation of the cloud forest. Enter Machu Picchu through the Inti Punku in the late afternoon and thus have the unique opportunity to see the city almost empty.

The Inca Trail 2 days to Machu Picchu is perfect for families, friends, single people, with children since it is only one day of walking, and the next day you explore the citadel of Machu Picchu. The Short Version Inca Trail Tour will allow you to reach Machu Picchu twice through the Inti Punku.

Places we will visit: You will have a guided visit to Chachabamba, Wiñaywayna, Puerta del Sol and Machu Picchu. Arriving at Machu Picchu in the afternoon and through the Puerta del Sol (Intipunku) is one of the most amazing experiences from where you will have the best view of Machu Picchu during sunset.
