Short Inca Trail Hike – 2 Day Inca Trail Overview
The 2 day Inca Trail, popularly known as Short Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu is one of the famous alternative treks to Machu Picchu. It takes you through some of the renowned Inca sites and will give you an insight into the Andean Traditions and Peruvian history.
The four day Classic Inca Trail is the most popular trail to Machu Picchu. However, due to its overgrowing demands and to maintain its authenticity, local authorities have introduced Inca Trail permits. These permits allow access to just 500 people a day. This number includes porters, guides, cooks and visitors.
Inca Trail permits are often sold out the moment they are released – 6 months before. Often last minute bookers are left with no choice and look for an alternative trek to make their visit to lost Inca a memorable one. We highly recommend hiking the 2 Day Inca Trail to get an overview of the Incas history and Andean traditions.
Short Inca Trail Hike:
Short Inca Trail is relatively an easier option. You won’t be hiking at high altitudes or camping in remote areas. Infact, the 2 Day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is often opted by families with small children.
The 12 kilometers (7.4 miles) trail to the lost Inca city takes you through three notable Inca sites – Chachabamba, Wiñay Wayna and Intipunku (Sungate). The route offers staggering views of the snow capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes. You will be hiking through different flora and fauna distinct to the region.
We are a local tour company. At Quechuas Expeditions we have a dedicated team of English speaking local tour guides for the Inca trail. They have hiked the trail over a hundred times. As locals, they have extensive knowledge about the traditions and history and are also trained in first aid.
Join us as a solo traveler, as couples or in small groups to retrace the footsteps of the Incas on this Short Inca Trail 2 Days trip to Machu Picchu.
Please note that although the trek is not as high as the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, we highly recommend that you spend at least 2-3 days in Cusco acclimatizing to avoid altitude sickness.
The best time of the year to hike 2 Day Inca Trail is from March to November, during the dry season.

Day 1: Cusco – Sacred Valley- Km.104 – Wiñay Wayna – Aguas Calientes
Your Short Inca Trail Hike to Machu Picchu begins with an early morning transfer from your hotel in Cusco. We will be driving you through the Sacred Valley of the Incas to Ollantaytambo. Here we will be boarding the Aguas Calientes bound train.
The 1.5 hours train ride to Km.104 which marks as the trailhead for Short Inca Trail, is a picturesque ride. The train snakes through highland villages and farmlands along the course of Urubamba river.
Km 104 is the name given to the trail head after its distance when traveling from Cusco to Machu Picchu. We will be arriving there by 10:00 AM. Your Short Inca Trail permit along with the original passport will be verified here by the local authorities.
We will begin the Short Inca Trail hike by crossing a small bridge with a short uphill hike to a lesser known yet a prominent Inca site, Chachabamba.
Chachabamba nestles at 2150 meters above sea level (7053 ft.). It is home to a stone altar which the Incas used to worship their supreme God, Inti (Sun) and Apus (Mountain Peaks). Using the sacred coca leaves they used to express their gratitude to mother nature and other entities.
Locals here continue the practice following the footsteps of their ancestors. Our local expert will be demonstrating the process during our visit here.
After touring Chachabamba, we will continue with the hike for roughly four hours up the hill to Wiñay Wayna. In Quechua Wiñay Wayna means forever young. The archaeological site is the most beautiful one on the trail.
Wiñay Wayna sits at 2650 meters (8694 ft) above sea level. The complex was built as an administrative center to Machu Picchu. It houses 20 urban areas, farming zones and ceremonial sites. The most prominent part of the complex is the 7 Window temple which was built in honor of the Rainbow.
Our local expert will be giving you an immersive tour here.
After the tour, we will be stopping at the campsite to unbox our lunch. The campsite is clean and well maintained. You can refill your water bottle here and also use the restrooms before we continue the 2 Day Inca Trail hike to our next stop, Intipunku (Sungate).
It takes an hour to reach Intipunku from Wiñay Wayna. This section of the trek will take us through lush tropical jungle. From the Sungate, you will get the first view of Machu Picchu citadel snuggled by Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu mountains.
Only those hiking the Inca Trail and Short Inca Trail enter the citadel through Sun gate. We will have a brief stop here so you can contemplate the view.
Once you have had your fill of the sight of Machu Picchu, we will be exiting the citadel and taking a bus down to Aguas Calientes town where we will be accommodating you in a hotel for the night.
Aguas Calientes, as the name suggests, is home to hot springs. You can spend the evening soaking in the natural thermal waters. It is the perfect way to relax your muscles after a full day tour. The town also has plenty of shops where you can possibly shop for souvenirs.
Day 2: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Ollantaytambo – Cusco
Early in the morning, we will be taking the touristic bus for a ride up the hill to Machu Picchu. Once again, your Machu Picchu tickets will be verified against your original passport.
As we enter the citadel, you will witness the golden rays of the rising sun beaming on the walls of Machu Picchu. We will begin the tour with a brief introduction to Inca civilization.
We will be visiting the main areas of the citadel like the main plaza, farming terraces and more. After the tour, if you have booked to climb Machu Picchu or Huayna Picchu mountain, our tour guide will be directing you to the respective entrance.
Once you have enjoyed Machu Picchu, we will be taking the bus back down to Aguas Calientes. You will have some free time here so you can have lunch or explore the town.
Later in the evening, we will be boarding the train back to Ollantaytambo train station. Our representative will meet you on arrival and will be transferring you back to your hotel in Cusco. We will be reaching by 10:00 PM.

Frequently Asked Questions
Licensed trek operators: The Ministry of Tourism is the regulatory body responsible for controlling access to Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail. In order to operate the Inca Trail companies must meet certain basic requirements proving that they have professional guides and good camping equipment, radio communications and emergency first aid including oxygen. The license to operate the Inca Trail is renewed at the beginning of each year. Due to legal problems the Government has found it hard to withdraw licenses from poor performing companies and every tour operator that has satisfied the basic requirements has so far been given a license.

SHORT INCA TRAIL PRE-DEPARTURE BRIEFING
Briefing before the Inca Trail

We must be informed in which hotels the clients are staying and the date of their arrival.
Where you will meet with your group and guide, here you will be given any rental equipment such as sleeping bags and duffle bags if you have requested extra porter the actual time of your briefing (6 or 7pm) will be confirmed at your check-in at the office 2 days prior to the trek.
If you do not have an operator in Cusco our office can take care of the reconfirmation of any domestic flights to Lima or other cities. Please ask for further information when you make your reservation.
What about my luggage which I don’t need on the trek?
We suggest you to leave your entire luggage, which you don’t need during the trekking, behind in your hotel. Almost every hotel in Cusco has a safety deposit where you can store your luggage and do not charge for this service when you’ll return to the same hotel after your trek. But if they don’t have a place we also have a place where you can leave with us. Let us know.
What if I have a medical emergency while hiking the trail?
Guides carry a first aid kit for basic medical problems (traveler’s diarrhea, cuts/ scrapes, etc.). They receive Red Cross First Aid and other emergency training every year. Our guides lead over 300 travelers along the Inca trail each year and we have rarely had a traveler unable to complete the hike. In these rare instances when someone has not felt well enough to finish the hike, he/ she has been escorted back to Cusco and generally felt well enough to re-join the group in Machu Picchu via train a few days later. Cusco has the nearest modern medical facilities so travelers with a serious medical emergency would need to be evacuated there. Guides and porters have pre-established evacuation strategies in place should this need occur.
What are the guides like?
Quechuas Expeditions Tours guides are among the very best and most experienced guides anywhere. They are from the surrounding Cusco/ Sacred Valley area and speak fluent English, in addition to Spanish and the native language of Quechua. Most have 5-10 years of experience leading Inca trail hikes and all have training in the history, spirituality, culture, and ecology of the area. We receive rave reviews on our guides. For more information, check out our Testimonials at: Our Testimonials Most of them are highly recommended by Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor.
What about late cancellations?
Current regulations do not allow us to replace cancelled passengers with new passengers. Trek permits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
If I give you my deposit now, do you buy my permit immediately?
Not necessarily immediately, but we customarily purchase the permits within a few days of receiving your deposit.
and if you want us to act Asap (Send us Your deposit by Western Union which is the fastest and safest way in Cusco, Peru and we can get the money in Minutes and Confirm the Trip in Minutes as well.)
