Express Hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

The “Express” is a 2-day Inca Trail to Machu Picchu excursion, which includes a visit to the impressive Wiñay Wayna ruins (“Forever Young” in Quechua) set in a steep hillside looking over the Urubamba River.  These Inca ruins are comprised of upper and lower house structures set among many agricultural terraces, connected by a long staircase and several fountain structures.

You will enjoy a guided tour of Machu Picchu on day 2 of this Inca trail tour package.
