4 Days (3 nights tour)
Ecological Inka Jungle
Day 1: Cusco - Santa María (Optional by Bike)
We will start the tour off with a transfer from your hotel or hostal to the local bus station at 7:40 am. Our destination for the day will be to the small pueblo, Santa Maria (1,430 mtrs). rolling hills and snow capped peaks of the Vilcanota Mountain Range. We will have some opportunities to take some pictures along the way as well. There is also the option, if the weather provides and the group agrees to, to ride for a number of hours by bicycle from the Abra de Malaga Pass. If it is available, it makes all the difference. The 3 - 4 hour downhill ride is exhilarating and relaxing at the same time, and will not be soon forgotten.
When we finally arrive, we will have some free time to rest (or explore) before having dinner and calling it a night.
Day 2: Santa María - Santa Teresa
We will begin the day’s trekking after having an energy packed breakfast. We will now be entering the outer jungle, as will be easily noted by the flora and fauna that we will see. Walking through the tropical forest will provide us with many photo opportunities as we will have gorgeous surroundings all around us. We will even have a chance to visit a local Coca Plantation on the way. At the highest point of the trail, we will come across an old Inka Trail, long out of use.
At last, when we arrive to Santa Teresa, we will be able to soothe ourselves in the naturally heated waters of the mineral enriched Hot Baths located there. We will relax there until it is time for Dinner. Afterwards, it will we enjoy a welcome sleep.
Day 3: Santa Teresa - Aguas Calientes
Day 3 will begin at 6:30 am with a typical breakfast. Today will be an even more tropical climate still as we draw nearer and nearer to the ancient city. We will walk for 5 – 6 hours by the truck road to Hydro-Electric Power Plant, where there is a sacred ceremonial site, IntiHuatana waiting for us, from here we will get Aguas Calientes trekking by the rail way , where we will immediately transfer to our hotel for the night. That night we will share a dinner with our guide as he briefs us on the next day’s plans before going to sleep.
Day 4: Machu Pichu
We will wake up extremely early, at 4:00 am, in order to start trekking up the mountain to Machu Pichu in time to catch the sunrise at top. It will be approximately an hour and 45 minutes to reach the top. When we first arrive, our guide will give us a 2 hour guided tour, enlightening us about all of the rich history of the ancient ruins around us. There is so much that our guide can teach us about all that we know about the site so far.
After the guided portion of the tour, you will have some free time to explore the ruins on your own. If you want to climb Huayna Pichu, then it is recommended that you go to the trail head immediately after the tour, because they only allow 400 persons in per day. The round trip walking to the peak of Huayna Picchu is about an hour and a half and it is worth it for the stunning views from the top, but it should be noted that the portion at the top with the stairs (the “stairs part” as it’s lovingly referred to) is moderately hazardous.
You will need to return back to Aguas Calientes to catch the return train to Ollanta.
