Short Inca Trail

This is a short program designed for people with limited time but who want to hike a section of the famous Inca Trail and enter the Inca sanctuary through the famous Sun gate. Enjoy the natural beauties and the scenic views of this easy to moderate trip.

A great option for a short visit to Machu Pichu!

Wake up at the call of birdsongs. The half-day hike to the Chachabamba will take you to the lush vegetation of the cloud forest where exotic birds (Andean guan, Gray-breasted mountain toucan, etc.) will salute your passing. 
Enjoy the scenic views of the Urubamba River and look for the playful Torrent Ducks.  Do not miss the various wild Orchids and bromeliads along the path!!! 
In late afternoon, you might see the colorful Cocks-of-the-Rock, the national bird of Peru; make its display around the campsite.
