At around 4 am we will start getting ready for our ascent to the Incan Citadel of Machu Picchu. We will climb up approximately 1500 steps. The guide will not be with you on the climb because he will have a lot of details to coordinate, but he will meet you at the entry gate in to Machu Picchu. We also have the policy of protecting our guides from the continual physical stress of climbing which can be damaging to the knees.

Soon after we enter the ruins, if luck is with us, we´ll view the magnificence of sunrise over the peaks at Machu Picchu. Our guide will be with us and will share his detailed knowledge of the site during our two hour guided tour. Then there will be free time to take photos or to do some more exploring.

Those people who have thought ahead and purchased an additional $35US per person ticket to climb up either Huaynapicchu Mountain or Machupicchu Mountain will be able to have a magnificent view of the ruins from high above. The extra climb takes about 3 hours, but it is well worth the effort. The view from the top is unforgettable.

In the afternoon we will return to Aguas Calientes where you will have lunch on your own ( lunch not included) and you can walk around one last time or buy souvenirs and get ready for the Expedition train ride back to Ollantaytambo which departs at 14: 55 pm and connect with a private van to take us back to Cusco, arriving at about 7 pm.
