We will start the tour with a pick up from our office at 7:30 am. (One day before the tour, visit our Cusco office: Calle Plateros to make all the arrangements and pay in cash) Our destination for the day will be the small town, Santa María (1,430 mtrs). Throughout our trip we will pass through picturesque hills and snow-capped peaks of the Vilcanota Mountain Range. We will also have the opportunity to take some photos along the way, cycling from the Abra de Málaga Pass (4,350), makes all the difference. The 3-4 hour downhill ride is exciting and relaxing at the same time and will not be soon forgotten. When we finally arrive, we will have some free time to rest, walk, or you can choose to join the Rafting tour, for an additional 100 soles, all before having dinner and ending the night.
We will start the day's trekking after having a breakfast full of energy. Now we will be entering the outer jungle, easily recognizable by the flora and fauna that we will see. Walking through the tropical forest, the beautiful surroundings will provide us with many photo opportunities. We will even have the opportunity to visit a local coca plantation along the way. At the highest point of the trail, we will come across an old Inka Trail, which has been out of use for a long time. Finally, when we arrive in Santa Teresa, we have the opportunity to soak in the naturally heated waters of the mineral-enriched thermal baths found there. the baths are relaxing and detoxifying for the mind, body and spirit. We can relax there until it's time to go to dinner. Afterwards, we will enjoy a very welcome sleep.
We will start at 6:30 am with an energetic breakfast. (Zip Line extra tour) Today will be in even more tropical weather as we get closer to the ancient city. We will walk for approximately 5 to 6 hours along the trucking road to a Hydroelectric Power Plant, where a sacred ceremonial site, IntiHuatana, awaits us. From here we will arrive at Aguas Calientes trekking along the railway. Once we arrive in Aguas Calientes, we will immediately transfer to our hostels to spend the night. Tonight we will share a dinner with our guide while he informs us about the plans for the next day before going to sleep.
We will wake up very early, at 4:30 am, to start hiking up the mountain to Machu Pichu in time to see the sunrise at the top. It will take about an hour and 45 minutes to reach the top. When we first arrive, our guide will take us on a 2-hour tour of the ruins, illuminating us on the ancient city. that was once alive, and enriching us with the history of the Inka. There is a lot of information that our guide can teach us, about everything we know about the site so far. After the guided part of the visit, you will have some free time to explore the ruins on your own. If you want to climb Huayna Pichu, it is recommended to book in advance, preferably three months in advance, with an additional cost of $25. There is a limited capacity of 400 people per day to climb Huayna Picchu, so book in advance so you do not miss lose it. . the round trip walking to the peak of Huaynapicchu is approximately one hour and a half. definitely worth it for the amazing views from the top. It should be noted that the upper part with the stairs (the "part of the stairs", as it is affectionately known) is moderately dangerous, especially if the weather has been wet. You will need to return to Aguas Calientes to take the train back to Cusco or Ollantaytambo.
