Trekking Inca Trail & Machu Picchu - On the fourth day we reach Machu Picchu through the sun gate, and you have time explore the site on your own. If you like you can meet up with the rest of the group and have lunch in the picturesque town of Aguas Calientes. It takes an hour on foot to get to town. It’s a lovely descending walk in which you have the chance to take some beautiful pictures. Alternatively you can take the shuttle bus, which takes 20 minutes. You also get the chance to visit the local hot springs (just what you need after a 4 day trek!). On the fourth night you spend the night in a comfortable hostel, where you can enjoy a hot shower.
