FIRST DAY: CUSCO – SANTA TERESA – AGUAS CALIENTES
We will pick you up at 7:30 and leave at 8:00 a.m. The tour will begin with a nice, scenic ride to Ollantaytambo, where we will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area as we take a short, 10 minutes break (approx). From there, we will continue down a long, winding path to “Habra de Malaga”, which stands at an altitude of 4,316 mtrs. From that vantage point, we will see some of the most amazing landscapes that Peru has to offer.
After a brief stop, we will begin our descent into the thick jungle, passing through the different micro-climates that combine the paradisiacal landscapes of the majestic snow-capped peaks with the hot, tropical entrance to the rainforest. We will continue along our route until we have reached Alfamayo, where there is a nice, paved road in perfect condition that we can use. We will need to take an unpaved road though, in order to continue on in the direction of Santa Maria, which is located at an altitude of 1575 meters above sea level. We will take a moment to rest here before continuing on to the small pueblo, Santa Teresa, where a delicious lunch will be waiting us at approximately 2 pm. There will be a variety of different foods available to suit every taste.
Afterwards, at around 3:00 pm, we will return to the route in the direction of the train station at the nearby Hydroelectric Plant. from here we walk for about 2 hours until Aguas Calientes arriving approximately at 5.30 pm, at which point you will be taken to the designated hostels. At 7 pm, though, it will be time to enjoy a hearty dinner along with the guide who will be taking you to the ancient citadel, Machu Picchu.
