These sections are about 2 kilometers long, and it is a bit steep, so it is recommended to walk calmly. This section is considered the most difficult, since it takes us to a height of 4200 meters, however, it is also one of the beautiful sea since once we have conquered its summit, we will be compensated by a beautiful view of the Andean snowcapped mountains. Then we will descend through a sinuous valley until we reach a point along the road, where we will stop for lunch. During this journey it is possible to observe types of birds.

Finally descend to one of the seventh wonders of the world "Machu Picchu" that rises to a height of 2430 meters above sea level, in the middle of a tropical forest, and with an extraordinary location. It was undoubtedly one of the most wonderful urban creations in the Inca boom era. Its enormous walls, terraces, and ramps seem to be naturally cut continuously in the rocky cliffs.

Our local guide will make a tour of the most important sectors of this beautiful Inca citadel for about 2 hours and then you will have free time to explore the city on your own.
