Inca Jungle Trek 4 Days / 3Nights

Itinerary

DAY 1: Cusco – Santa María:

You will be picked up from your accommodation between 7:45 and 8:00 a.m. You will then be driven to Ollantaytambo where you can buy snacks and water for the first leg of the tour, we then head towards the Abra Malaga the highest point of the route at 4,230 meters above sea level, here the cycling route begins and lasts anywhere between 1 to 3 hours where you will be able to appreciate the natural landscape of forests, the climate in this area changes and becomes warmer and more humid as we go into the “Seja de Selva” or literally the “Jungle ́s eyebrow”. After this experience we proceed to climb back into the van (the reason for this being that the road is under construction) to finally arrive in Santa Maria, where you will enjoy lunch and can relax or do some rafting (optional).

There are times when football matches are organized here between different groups, Ask others travellers if they are up for it! After dinner we recommend you sleep well so you can fully enjoy the next day. The hostels here are mostly run by local families and have basic but cozy services.

Ask about the optional Rafting. It takes 2 hours and costs an additional U$D 35
Sorry but the Hostels here DO NOT have hot showers

DAY 2: Santa María – Santa Teresa:

This day will begin with breakfast and some good coffee of the valley region we are in. At around 7 am we will start the trek, which will average between 5-6 hours, through an Inca trail where you will appreciate the different plantations of coffee, bananas, mangos, coca, and others before reaching the point of lunch where you can relax in the hammocks.

We then continue with an extra 3 hour trek to Santa Teresa where a good dinner will be waiting for us and we can rest.

Sorry but the Hostels here DO NOT have hot showers

DAY 3: Santa Teresa – Aguas Calientes:

After breakfast we start a 5 hour trek towards a family owned restaurant where we will stop for lunch and to refresh. The rest of the hike will take around three hours to reach Aguas Calientes.

Once there we will head to the hostel to leave our luggage and as an option we can go to the hot springs in Aguas Calientes village. At night, dinner is included and there the guide will explain to us the next day’s activities. Here the Hostel will have hot water and private bathroom.

**Ask about the optional canopy tour that costs $30. (Optional)**

Day 4: Machu Picchu – Cusco:

Very early we will start the ascent to Machu Picchu to arrive just before dawn (the walk takes approx. 2 hours) the bus is optional and costs $ 12 per ticket each way, the first bus leaves at 5:30 am. If you bought your entrance pass to Huayna Picchu you will have the chance to climb this mountain (availability is controlled by the government and the Ministry of Culture, ask about availability at the time of your booking). In Machu Picchu you will have a two hour guided tour and after this you will have some time to explore this important Inca citadel on your own. We will then return to Aguas Calientes where you must be at the train station at least 30 minutes before your train leaves (the return train is subject to change so it’s better to be safe and on time).
