The Inka Jungle Tour 3d/2n with biking descent and trekking through the jungle is NOT a simple alternative to the classic Inka trail. It is a more original combination of adventure and adrenaline that takes you to along part of the jungle and ends up on Machu Picchu. We will trek through recently discovered trails, even on the second day we will be trekking on an original Inka trail. This tour is recommended for people of all ages with an affinity to adventure, curiocity, and some extra energy!!!
Goups: 2 people minimum to a maximum of 15 people.
The ascent to La Puerta del Sol is always available and accesible. It is a pleasant place with a nice view of Machu Picchu, you can take this walk on you free time.
If you prefer to climb up Huayna Picchu you will have an spectacular view, but this should be reserved a long time in advance and the cost of it is 25 US$ per person.
Is an hour and a half climb up of moderated difficulty.
Another option is Machu Picchu Montania, an hour and a half very steep, very physically demanding ascending and the cost of it is 15 US$ per person. This is probably the most spectacular view, but the three options are very enjoyable and will allow you to take good photos.
The first day – the Inca Jungle Trail – starts early in the morning; we will pick you up from your hotel between 6:30 and 7:00 am. For two hours, we cross through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, a very famous Valley due it being the leading producer of vegetables in the Cusco región. Furthermore, it hosts imposing Inca palaces and buildings. During the route we will stop for 30 minutes in Ollantaytambo village, where we will have breakfast and buy some candies, chocolates, cookies, and energizantes. We will continue driving for 1 more hour until arriving to the Abra Malaga pass, located at 4350 m.a.s.l. From there we will descend with bicycles for around 3 hours observing small towns, fruit plantations, rivers and creeks until arriving to the town of Huamanmarca, where we catch again the car that will transport us for 30 more minutes to Santa Maria town. At Santa Maria, we will have lunch. In the afternoon at 3:00 pm you can go do river rafting (not included/optional) – 2 hours of full adrenaline and fun into the Urubamba river of lll and IV level. After finishing rafting you will catch the car again and it will transport to the Santa Teresa town where you will spend the night.
We will wake up at 8:00 am and after breakfast we will go do zip lining (not included/optional). After zip lining, we will catch the car that will transport us to the town of Hidroelectrica, where we will have lunch and time to rest. In the afternoon we will continue hiking for 3 more hours along the train tracks, where we will observe beautiful landscapes until arriving to Aguas Calientes town where we will spend the night.
