The traditional Inca Trail 2 days +  Rainbow Mountain are the most recommended tours in Cusco, the high tropical jungle with its lush landscapes, passing through the archaeological group of Wiñayhuayna, IntiPunku and reaching Machu Picchu to take the most requested photo by all our visitors, this is the only tour where you will visit the Inca city of Machu Picchu twice, so I think it is the best tour of Cusco.

The Rainbow Mountain is another very requested tour and, in recent years is the most famous and visited tour after Machu Picchu, this trek is the most physically demanding because of the altitude, and it is required to be in good condition.

Our breakfast will be in the Sacred Valley early, Vistadome train transfer to km 104 starting point of the Inca Trail, after the control we will visit Chachabamba which is an archaeological group that is at the beginning of the Inca Trail, then begin the climb with stunning views of mountains and landscapes to Winayhuayna where we will be guided for half an hour and then have lunch en route.
