We will begin our walk and we will join the entire team of professionals who will make our trip an unforgettable experience.
The Inca Trail begins by crossing the traditional bridge at Km 82 and continues along the left bank of the Urubamba River, which flows northeast of the Sacred Valley.

On the second day we will resume our walk around 7:00, after having breakfast. This part of the route is the hardest day of the Inca Trail, since the walk consists of a steep and narrow climb for about 9 kilometers. Throughout this climb the landscape will change from mountain range to puna, a dry and high area with little vegetation.
We will arrive at the first and highest pass of the mountain, the Abra de Warmihuañusca (Dead Woman’s Pass, 4125 meters above sea level), where we can observe llamas and domestic alpacas grazing on the ichu, one of the few plants that grow at that altitude. We will also cross through an area of ​​the forest where various kinds of animals live such as sparrows and the Andean bear (or spectacled bear).
