ITINERARY

DAY 01: HABRA MALAGA AND SANTA TERESA.

 

We will depart at 08:30 am. from the starting point at the Plaza de Armas in front of the Main Church. 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 30 minutes break (approximately). From there, we will continue down a long, winding path to “Habra Malaga”, which stands at an altitude of 4,316 meters. From that vantage point, we will see some of the most amazing landscapes that Cusco has to offer you.

 

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 masl. We will take a moment to rest here before continuing on to the small town, Santa Teresa, where a delicious lunch will be awaiting us at approximately 14:00 hrs. There will be a variety of different foods available to suit every taste.

 

Afterwards, at around 15:45hrs we will return to the route in the direction of the train station at the nearby Hydroelectric Plant. The train will have us in Aguas Calientes by 19:30hrs at which point you will be taken to the designated hostals and hotels.

If we have any extra time, we can also go take a relaxing dip in the natural, heated waters of the hot baths. At 20:00hrs, 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. At that time, he will have a chance to go over the plan for the following day and answer any questions. Overnight.

 

DAY 02 – SUNRISE AT MACHU PICCHU CITADEL.

You will have the option to go up to Machu Picchu by bus or walking.

Breakfast will be served from 04:00 am. The guided tour of the site will begin at 06:00 am and will last for at least 2 hours. Afterwards, you will be able to enjoy some free time until approximately 12:30hrs which is the recommended time to begin returning down the mountain to the train station. The train back to the hydroelectric will be leaving Aguas Calientes at 13:30 hrs.

 

Upon our arrival to the hydroelectric, we will transfer over from the train station to a private van, which will take us to Santa Teresa. There, we will have a one hour break for one last chance to get some food or use the restroom before we undertake the final leg of the ride. We will then proceed back to Cusco, returning down the same road that brought us here.

 

We will arrive to Cusco around 22:00 hrs. Approx.
