Inca Jungle Trek is the most popular tour that we offer and there is good reason for it. When the tour was created, it was with the adventure seekers in mind. This tour is kind of like the Inka Trail ‘revamped’, but with the same pay off at the end: The glorious Lost City of the Inkas MACHUPICCHU.
This tour will no doubt provide you with memories that you will never forget.
also we have Inca jungle Trek 3 Days / 2 Nights
Day 1 Cusco – Santa Maria Biking (Rafting optional)
To the Inca Jungle Trek We will pick you up from your hotel at 7:00 a.m. for the bus ride of approximately 90 minutes through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, passing Chinchero, Urubamba, and Ollantaytambo, where we’ll take a 30-minute break, before heading to the Malaga Pass (4350 meters above sea level). From the pass, we’ll travel by bike as far as Wamanmarca (3 hours / 55km). During the ride, we’ll experience the beauty of the mountains and cloud forest. The climate will quickly change from cold and dry to hot and humid. After the bike ride, we’ll take transport to the town of Santa Maria, where you’ll have the option of doing an extra rafting tour (not included) on the Vilcanota River .
(Lunch, dinner, hostel included)
Day 2 Santa Maria – Santa Teresa Trekking
At 6:30 in the morning, after a delicious breakfast, we’ll begin our first day’s hiking to the cloud forest. The first 1 hour is flat, then 2 hours of the trek will be uphill. During this time, we’ll see plantations of coca, coffee, cacao, and tropical fruits typical of the region. We’ll also make several stops, one of which will be at the house of the Pispitayoq family, where we’ll rest for about 20 minutes. Later, we’ll cross the famous original Inca trail, with magnificent views of the valley we’re going to hike through. After passing the Inca trail it will be very easy going, and after around another 90 minutes we will reach Qellomayu, the place where we’ll have lunch. After lunch, we’ll continue along the banks of the Vilcanota River for about another 3 hours, before crossing the river via a monkey bridge. Finally, after approximately 7 or 8 hours of hiking, we’ll arrive at the Cocalmayo hot springs, and later the town of Santa Teresa (1540 meters above sea level)
(Breakfast, lunch, dinner, hostel included)
Day 3 Santa Teresa – Aguas Calientes – Trekking (zip-line optional)
We will eat breakfast at 7:00 a.m. Before the hike, you will have the option of zip-lining (not included.). We’ll hike for about 3 hours on a dirt trail to a hydroelectric plant, where we’ll have lunch. After lunch, we’ll continue for another 3 hours along the railroad track, observing the flora and fauna of the area along the way. The ruins of Machu Picchu can be seen in the distance. We will arrive at Aguas Calientes at around 5:00 p.m., where we will spend the night in a hostel with private bathrooms and hot water.
Doing ZIP-LINE, only we will hike 3 hours to aguas calientes.
(Breakfast, lunch, dinner, hostel)
Day 4 Machu Picchu (2450 meters)
At 4:20 a.m., we will begin the 90-minute hike up to the citadel of Machu Picchu, where we’ll have the opportunity to see the sunrise over the ruins. We will have a two-hour guided tour of the ruins, followed by some free time to explore the site or climb Huayna Picchu mountain. Please note: For climbing Huayna Picchu there is a fee. After visiting Machu Picchu, we will catch the train back to Ollantaytambo, from where it is a 2-hour bus ride back to the city of Cusco.
WE OFFER YOU TWO OPTIONS TO GO BACK TO CUSCO AFTER VISITING MACHU PICCHU.
You can visit Machu Picchu for a longer time and have enough time if you are planning to do HUAYNAPICCHU or MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN, which require a minimum of 3 hours approximately. After visiting the area of Machu Picchu for 7 to 8 hours, you have to return to the town of Aguas Calientes to take a train at 18:20 to Ollantambo for 1.5 hours then by car to Cusco for 2 hours more to arrive in Cusco around 10:30 pm
You arrive at Machu Picchu around 6:00 am for the guided tour for 2 hours then you have free time to explore the site on your own. If you take this option, and you are thinking to do HUAYNAPICCHU, or MACHU PICCHU MOUNTAIN is possible but will be too very tight and rush because you need to leave Machu Picchu at 11:30 to walk back to Hydroelectric for 3 hours in order to be in Hidrolectrica at 3:00pm to take a car for 6 hours back Cusco. If you are considering doing this option and doing one of the mountains, we recommend you stay one more night in Aguas Calientes and return the 6th day to Cusco by car.
