Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu

Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu – 5D/4N

Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better” Einstein

The Ancascocha Trek is one of the lesser known treks from Cusco. In fact, you may even draw blank looks from people when you tell them you’re hiking it. Yet it was named by National Geographic as one of 20 dream hikes on their World Best Hikes list, and for good reason.

Highlights of this trip include guided tours of ancient Inca ruins, wandering through remote Fincas where generations of farmers have tended their livestock, and passing traditional Andean villages like Chillipahua and Ancascocha. But of course the real reason to take this trek is for the unsurpassed views of the majestic Andes.

Being rewarded with amazing views does not come without effort. This is a challenging trek as we climb above 4,550m to the Huayanay Pass (4,650 m/ 15,255 ft.) and so we recommend that everyone who joins us has a good level of basic fitness. But maintaining a high elevation for much of the trek we will see spectacular views across the mountains, beautiful clear blue lakes and raging waterfalls, and with the towering 6,266m (20,551 ft.) Apu Salkantay frequently dominating the skyline.

At ATP, your safety, enjoyment and comfort are always our primary concern, and so your guide will always ensure that the pace of the hike suits the whole group, taking rests when necessary.

Our campsite on all 3 nights will be prepared before our arrival, and we use only high quality camping equipment to ensure your maximum comfort. We are extremely proud of our kitchen team, and you will be amazed at the meals your chef and his assistant are able to produce on the side of a mountain. You certainly won’t go hungry, and the menu is especially prepared to ensure you have enough energy for each days hiking.

On our final day of hiking we will be on a portion of the Classic Inca Trail (the one that gets booked up a year in advance!) After 3 days of solitude, you may well be surprised to see so many other hikers; but don’t worry, they are going in the other direction!

From the sacred valley town of Ollantytambo we will take the scenic train to Aguas Calientes, which is the base for our trip to Machu Picchu.

The train journey in itself is a fantastic experience, and full of photo opportunities. A night at a nice hotel is included in the price of the trek, as is a group dinner at one of the best restaurants in Aguas Caliente, so you are sure to get a good night’s rest.

Our final day is spent visiting Machu Picchu, one of the 7 new wonders of the world. Despite the staggering views that you will have seen already, you are guaranteed to be left speechless as you take in the views of the most famous site in South America.

Your guide will provide a 2 hour amazing guided tour of the site. After completing the tour, we return you by train and then by our mini-van to your Cusco hotel.

ITINERARY – ANCASCOCHA HIKE TO MACHU PICCHU

Pre-trek briefing (required): We provide a full pre-trek briefing at our office or at your hotel in Cusco. This gives you the chance to ask questions about the trek itinerary. Briefings are scheduled for the day before your trek starts.

Please take this into consideration when booking your travel plans to Cusco, to ensure you arrive in time for the briefing.

Day 1: Cusco – Soqma – Rayan

We pick you up from your hotel early on the first morning and drive for around 2 hours to Soqma (3,205 m / 10,512 ft), the starting point of our trek.

Our vans are extremely comfortable and we provide blankets for those who would prefer to catch a little more rest during the drive.

After meeting your porters and horsemen, and making a final equipment check, the hike begins with a moderate 2 hour walk to the Perolniyoc waterfall.

If the weather is warm enough you may want to make the short climb down to the base of the falls to cool off, or maybe just stay on the trail and take your first photos.

A half hour further on we arrive at the Perolniyoc Inca ruins, perched on a cliff-top with spectacular views of the surrounding valley.

All of our guides are experts in Inca history and so they will provide you with a quick history lesson as you soak in the views. We will also take lunch here and for the first time you will sample the sumptuous cooking from our kitchen team.

After lunch we make a steep climb for around an hour to our campsite at Rayan (3,700 meters /12,139 ft).

Clear nights in the Andes are a wonder in themselves, and as we settle down to a full 3 course dinner you can watch the sky fill with constellations and the most amazing display of shooting stars before retiring to your tent for a well-earned night’s sleep.

  • Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Lowest Elevation: 3,205 m/10,512 ft.
  • Highest Elevation: 3,700 m /12,139 ft.
  • Distance to walk: 8 km/4,9 miles
  • Approximate walking time: 4 to 5 hours
  • Level of Difficulty: Moderate
  • Area: Dry Mountain

Day 2: Rayan – Kuychiccasa Pass – Ancascocha

There’s no need to set an alarm on an ATP trek, as our team will wake you gently in the morning with a freshly brewed cup of tea or coffee and hot water to wash with. Once everyone is up, we will have breakfast together and get ourselves fueled for the day ahead.

You will need that fuel as we start with a steep 3 hour ascent to the Kuychiccasa pass (4,450 m /14,599 ft).

On the way we will pass rustic Fincas, see wild Alpacas or maybe even a passing Condor, and always with the snow-capped peaks of the Nevadas in the background.

There is no race to reach the top though, and we will take a break together to enjoy the 360 degree views of the Chancachuco and Sacred valleys.

Then, it’s just a 1 hour easy hike to our lunch stop at the Chancachuco Valley (4,312 m / 14,147 ft).

After lunch we make a short climb with beautiful views of Mt. Veronica (5,822 m/ 19,100 ft) before an easy 3 hour walk downhill to the community of Ancascocha (3,700 m/12,139 ft).

Our campsite for the night is in a small but gorgeous wooded valley with a stream running through it.

  • Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Highest Elevation: 3,700 m/12,139 ft.
  • Campsite elevation: 4,450 m/14,599 ft.
  • Distance to walk: 14 km/8,6 miles
  • Approximate walking time: 8 – 10 hours
  • Level of Difficulty: Challenging
  • Area: Dry Mountain

Day 3: Ancascocha – Huaynay Pass – Quesqa Valley – Paucarcancha

Once again, Day 3 starts with a climb, but this time just for 1 hour. Your reward? Stunning views of the nearby glacier, well preserved Inca remains, and the sparkling blue Ancascocha Lake.

Taking a deep breath we make a strenuous 2 hour climb to the highest point of the trek, the Huayanay Pass (4,650 m/15,255 ft). Along this section you will see an original cobblestone paved Inca Trail.

After all that effort, we will take our time to enjoy the incredible views from the summit, before making an easy 45 minute walk to our lunch stop at the small Inca site of Incaracay.

The afternoon’s hiking is much easier as we descend to the community of Quesqa Valley and on to the Inca site of Paucarcancha (3,133 m/10,278 ft).

At this lower elevation, the vegetation is lush and green, and we will have the chance to see a view of the Classic Inca Trail in the distance as well as the remote communities of the Quesqa valley.

On arrival at Paucarcancha your guide will provide a guided tour of the site, before settling into our campsite for the evening and yet another excellent dinner.

  • Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Highest Elevation: 4,650 m/15,255 ft.
  • Campsite elevation: 3,133 m/10,278 ft.
  • Distance to walk: 15 km/ 9,3 miles
  • Approximate walking time: 8 to 9 hours
  • Level of Difficulty: Challenging
  • Area: Dry Mountain

Day 4: Paucarcancha – Kilometer 82 – Ollantaytambo – Aguas Calientes

The last day of hiking is the easiest of all as it is a 6 hour hike downhill on a section of the Classic Inca Trail to Km 82 (the official start of the Classic Trail). Lunch will be served at Km82.

After lunch we drive you to Ollantaytambo (2,792 m/9,160 ft) to catch the scenic train to Aguas Calientes (2,040 m/6,692 ft).

The train journey provides a totally different perspective of the mountains you’ve just been hiking in, and many more photo opportunities.

Arriving in Aguas Calientes you will check-in to your nice hotel room where you can rest before dinner. Or, if you still have some energy, the natural hot springs in town are also a great place to relax.

Showered and refreshed we will take dinner together at an excellent restaurant with an extensive menu (drinks not included). It’s likely to be an early night though, as our trip to Machu Picchu normally starts before sunrise!

  • Meals: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Lodging: Hotel
  • Highest Elevation: 3,133 m/10,278 ft.
  • Lowest Elevation: 2,040 m/6,692 ft.
  • Distance to walk: 12 km/ 7 ½ miles
  • Estimated walking time: 6 hours
  • Level of Difficulty: Easy

DAY 5: Aguas Calientes – Machu Picchu – Cusco

The hotel we use provides a very early buffet, or can provide a boxed breakfast, to ensure we are in the queue for the bus as early as the group would like.

It is about a 25 minute drive along the winding road to Machu Picchu, and on a clear day the sunrise can be spectacular.

Upon arrival your guide provides a 2 hour walking tour of the site, named as one of the new 7 wonders of the world.

Then you are free to wander through the ruins yourself, perhaps finding a solitary spot to reflect on this awesome achievement of the Incas, or, if you have elected to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountains you can begin the hike once your guided tour concludes (Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain is not included in the trek price).

Your guide will arrange the time for you to return to Aguas Calientes by bus in time to make your train connection back to Poroy or to Ollantaytambo.

From here you will travel by private van to Cusco and back to your hotel. Arrival times will vary depending on traffic and connections, but should be around 8 pm.

Ancascocha Trek 2024 FAQs.

What is the Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu?

The Ancascocha hike to Machu Picchu in the Peruvian Andes is a remarkable trail that remains off the beaten path. It is listed as one of National Geographic’s 20 dream hikes on their World Best Hikes list.

The trek wanders through traditional villages like Chillipahua and its namesake Ancascocha (3.700 m / 12.136 ft). Along the way, it humps over big passes, including the high point at the Huayanay Pass (4.550 m / 14.925 ft), and takes in views of towering 6.266 m / 20.551 ft) Apu Salkantay.

Why the Ancascocha trek is getting popular?

National Geographic named it one of World Best Hikes as one of their 20 dream hikes. You will be delighted if you choose to trek this route: you’ll have a guided tour through several Inca ruins, wander through remote fincas, and visit traditional Andean villages. 

The stunning views of the solemn Andean Mountains are the main reason that excited travelers choose to trek this unique and epic route.

You can traverse everything, from the rolling farmlands in the Quesca Valley to high alpine passes in the Cordillera. You will meet the children of the schools and get a glimpse into the day-to-day life of an alpaca farmer as you pass through Andean villages. 

There will be glacial lakes, soaring glaciers and steamy cloud forests. You also might see ancient ruins that date back to before the Incas occupied the same lands. 

This trail is 90% of the original Inca Trail and many sections are in near perfect condition because it is the less traveled road to Machu Picchu.

How far in advance should I reserve my permit for the Ancascocha trek?

Unlike the Classic Inca Trail, where there is a limit of 500 hikers per day and so permits can be sold out up to six months in advance, there are no limits for the Ancascocha trek.

This makes it an excellent alternative if you’d been hoping to hike the Inca Trail but have found that there isn’t any space. 

The only restriction you’ll face is on the availability of entry tickets to Machu Picchu, so it’s still worth booking at least a few weeks in advance, particularly if you’re travelling between May and September.

Is a permit required to trek the Ancascocha hike to Machu Picchu?

No permits are currently required to trek the Ancascocha trek. However, you will need a ticket to enter Machu Picchu at the end of the trek. Also, if you plan on hiking any of the three mountain trails within Machu Picchu, you will also need to buy these tickets in advance too.

Again, be mindful, that tickets for Huayna Picchu sell out months in advance, as there is a limit of just 200 people per day. So, you may need to be a little more organized than usual if you plan to hike this trek. 

Does the Ancascocha trek include your Machu Picchu entrance ticket?

Yep, the cost of entry is included in the trip price and it’s the responsibility of Action Peru Treks to take care of all that and provide you with the ticket on the day you’re entering the site.

Is there a waiting list for sold out Machu Picchu permits?

No, there is no waiting list for permits. Permits are only available for purchase through the Peruvian government. Once a permit is purchased for one person, the permit cannot be refundable or transferred to another individual.

Is it possible to enter Machu Picchu with a different name?

No, you need to carry your valid passport to enter the city.

What is the terrain like? And how difficult is the Ancascocha trek?

The difficulty of Ancascocha trek is “Challenging”.

The Ancascocha trek is around 49 km (30.2 miles) long. For travelers interested, you must be physically capable for a trek like this.

Altitude effects aside, it is multiple days of 8+ hours of hiking through rough terrain and often up or down hill. But anyone who exercises regularly will manage just fine! It is exhausting but it’s certainly not unbearable.

All guides carry oxygen canisters, so if you start to feel altitude sickness you can rest and get some much-needed O2. If you’re an avid hiker or used to the altitude you won’t have a problem.

For everyone else, make sure you feel confident in your hiking abilities and you’ll do amazing.

Which campsites do you use along the trek?

Campsites may change depending on booking time and availability, weather conditions or on restrictions undertaken for safety reasons by our trekking team.

We generally camp in less trafficked areas so that trekkers can enjoy the natural beauty of the trek and minimize environmental impacts.

Our regular campsites for either the 5 day or 4-day trek itineraries are Rayan, Chancachuco, Ancascocha and Paucarcancha.

What do I need to carry on the trek?

We recommend that travelers carry the items that they will need each day while hiking such as water, snacks, camera and film.

Our horses will carry 8 kg of each of your personal gear including the camping equipment during the trek. We will give you a duffel bag for those belongings at the time of your pre trek briefing.

We generally ask trekkers to bring only the necessary items that they will need for the trail and leave any unneeded luggage at the hotel in Cusco or at our office.

Where do I store my luggage during the Salkantay Trek?

Your Cusco hotel will store your luggage for free while you will be on the trek. We can also store your extra luggage at our office in Cusco.

How big are the groups?

Our groups are usually small. Average is 3 to 5 people and maximum 16 people plus the trekking team.

When Is the Best Time to Hike the Ancascocha Trek?

 The end of the rainy season (April) and the beginning of the dry season (May) are generally considered the best times to hike the Ancascocha trek.

The surrounding landscape is still green and lush from months of downpour and the chances of being caught out in the rain are significantly lower.

Is the Ancascocha hike to Machu Picchu always open?

It’s possible to hike the Ancascocha trek all year round, but for the best conditions (and to get those iconic views at Machu Picchu on the final day), try to avoid the rainy season, which is between November and March.

Are there toilets and showers at the campsites?

We provide you with a pop up tent and eco-friendly portable  toilet that is clean and sanitary.

Hot shower is available for some extra soles at Paucarcancha campsite.  

Altitude and acclimatization

We recommend travelers spend a few days in Cusco before doing the trek to help adjust to the high altitude.

It’s better to acclimatize in Cusco, not the Sacred Valley, because the higher elevation of the city at 11,120 ft (3,400 m) is more akin to those at the start of the Salkantay trek.

Altitude sickness is caused by a rapid change in elevation without the necessary time for acclimatization. Mild symptoms are common and include lingering headache, nausea, and loss of appetite.

Every person responds differently to the change in altitude and unfortunately there is no way to prevent it or predict how seriously it may affect you.

What is the food like on the Ancascocha hike?

A cook accompanies each group on the trek and prepares breakfast, three course lunches and dinners. The meals are quite exquisite considering that all of the ingredients and cooking supplies are carried from Cusco and the Sacred Valley.

Each trekker is also provided with snacks to take with them on the trek. Vegetarian and vegan meals are also available upon request. Other special dietary requests can usually be accommodated as well with sufficient notice.

Is drinking water supplied?

Yes, our trekking team will provide drinking water every morning and at each meal (except for the first day until the lunch spot).

Each evening, water is collected from nearby streams, boiled, and left to cool overnight. A reusable water bottle or hydration pack works well for this.

We recommend that travelers bring their own refillable bottles to limit plastic waste along the Trail.

What equipment is supplied by us along the trek?

We supply the sleeping tents (4 person tents for two travelers), dining tents, tables, chairs, toilet tents, cooking equipment, water purifiers, sleeping pads, and other camping equipment.

Our outfitter purchases the highest quality equipment in Peru and older equipment is evaluated and replaced on a regular basis.

What are the guides like?

Our team are among the very best and most experienced guides anywhere. They are from the surrounding Cusco and the Sacred Valley areas and speak fluent English, in addition to Spanish and the Inca indigenous language of Quechua.

Most have 8-10 years of experience leading hikes to Machu Picchu and all have training in the history, spirituality, culture, and ecology of the area.

How can I prepare for the Ancascocha trek?

The more training you do beforehand, the more you will enjoy your trek.

We recommend 30 minutes of cardio activities 3-4 times a week in the 2-3 months leading up to your departure. Take every opportunity to walk up and down stairs or hills for leg strengthening and aerobic fitness.

Are there any ATMs?

There are no ATMs along the Ancascocha trek. You should bring enough money with you from Cusco for tipping and lunch in Aguas Calientes.

There are also some ATMs in Aguas Calientes if you need to withdraw additional cash.

What if I have a medical emergency while hiking the Ancascocha hike?

Guides carry a first aid kit for basic medical problems (traveler’s diarrhea, cuts/scrapes, etc.). They receive Red Cross First Aid and other emergency training every year.

Our guides lead over 1000 travelers along the trek each year and we have rarely had a traveler unable to complete the hike.

In these rare instances when someone has not felt well enough to finish the hike, the client has been escorted back to Cusco and generally felt well enough to re-join the group in Machu Picchu via train a few days later.

Cusco city has the nearest modern medical facilities so travelers with a serious medical emergency would need to be evacuated there. Guides and porters have pre-established evacuation strategies in place should this need occur.

Is there internet access on the Ancascocha hike?

Nope, and this is one of the best things about it.

Instead, you and your group will spend evening conversing over metal cups of hot tea or coffee, playing card games, or lazing in nature together.

Your last chance to use the internet or have a reliable phone signal will be in Huarocondo (the nearest town to the start of the hike), and your first opportunity will be at Ollantaytambo before taking you’re the train down to Aguas Calientes town.

How much money should you bring on the Ancascocha trek?

The vast majority of costs will be covered in the up-front price of your trip, but there are a few costs along the way for which you’ll need to bring cash:

  • Snacks and drinks from stallholders
  • Toilet entry fees (usually 2 soles at Machu Picchu)
  • Tips for porters and guides
  • Lunch on day 5 at Aguas Calientes.

It’s sensible to take this money in the form of smaller notes and coins.

We’d say at least 350 soles per person for the trek-specific section.

Will I get altitude sickness on the Ancascocha trek?

Many of the most popular places in Peru, such as Cusco and Huaraz, are at high altitude; this means that for anyone planning a trip to Peru understanding altitude sickness (and how to avoid it) is incredibly important. In fact, not approaching altitude correctly is one of the biggest mistakes of travelers in South America.

The best way to minimize the likelihood and impact of altitude sickness is factoring in enough time into your Peru itinerary to acclimatize to the conditions.

This means that it is incredibly foolish to arrive in Cusco, which is at 3,399m (11,152 feet) above sea-level, and leave the next day to do a strenuous hike or even start the Salkantay trek. Your body needs the time to adjust to the altitude!

A good rule of thumb is to give yourself and your body two easy days at altitude to acclimatize to the change, and to keep yourself well hydrated throughout.

What about medication?

Obviously, medical attention and facilities along the trek are pretty much non-existent so you need to bring any of your own required medication with you and keep it on your own person or in the daypack.

What climates can I expect on the Ancascocha trek?

Variance in latitude, elevation and local winds all factor into the wide range of climates experienced in the central Sierra Mountain region. Average temperatures in the Sierra vary little between seasons, but there is dramatic daily variance. 

While the average daily temperature may only vary a few degrees Celsius between January and July, the diurnal (daily) temperature range is often huge.

You can expect daytime temperatures in the highlands to be in the range of 10-25°C (50-77 °F), falling as low as -10 °C (14°F) at night especially at the second camp site.

How much time can I spend at the Machu Picchu sanctuary?

There are three time slots in which patrons can enter Machu Picchu for a maximum of four hours and must follow one of three predetermined routes. Admission is not allowed after 4pm. Additionally, all visitors must always be accompanied by a guide.

The early morning is one of the best times to savour the views and atmosphere of Machu Picchu. The mystical morning light over the enigmatic sites is spectacular. Try and catch the sunrise at the sanctuary, you won’t regret the early wakeup call!
