|4 Day Inca Trail (Premium
Service - March through December)
With our PREMIUM system you
trek at a leisure pace, camping at more secluded camps ,
away from the crowds, we run an ecological minded trip
by taking out all the garbage including all the human
You will not carry anything , except a small day pack ,
with your bottle water and camera.
Also , it is our policy the fair treatment of our staff
and porters, providing them with good food , shelter and
The difference between our service and that of other
companies , is that the first day we camp near
Llactapata a more secluded camp, other Agencies camp at
Huayabamba, a small town on the trail , full of people.
On the second day those agencies trek up hill all day
and in the late afternoon with the last bit of energy,
they go over Warmiwanusta pass 4,100 meters ( Dead women
pass) , then go down to camp at Pacasmayo, again a
crowded camp. With ourselves on the other hand on the
second day we trek toward Huayabamba and hike up hill,
camping closed to the high pass at a more secluded place
, giving you more time to acclimatize . On the third day
, fresh after a good night sleep, we hike up for one
hour to the high pass and continue the trek all the way
to Phuyupatamarca (City Above the Clouds) , the best
camp on all inca trail.
On the early morning you will enjoy a magnificent Sun
Rise , since you are on top of the mountain with the
clouds below you. On the other hand most companies camp
at Winay Wayna, much lower and most of the time that
early in the morning is foggy , since they are already
in the cloud forest.

mountain, Veronica (20,200’). An easy introductory day
of no more than a 4 hours walk. Arriving at camp with in

overgrowth. A most rewarding day, with dream like
landscapes of the Inca Trail to Machupichu, orchids,
ferns multi colored birds and humming birds provide the
ideal backstage. We make our camp at Phuyupatamarca
(¨City Above the Clouds¨), a set of ancient ritual
baths, where ancient travelers on the Inca trail to
MachuPicchu will stop to bathe and purify themselves
before arriving to the sacred Sanctuary .You can do the
