PACKAGE DETAILS

Day 1: Cusco – Mollepata – Soraypampa

You get picked up from Cusco by private transportation for 03 hours aprox..until Mollepata(Trail Head) in this village.  We have a 1 hour stop for breakfast (not included in the cost) then we will meet our staff (cook and horsemen)

We start the hike having an easy uphill of 01 hour arriving to Cruzpata, from where we get our first view of the magnificent snow mountain of Humantay (5920 m.a.s.l) Two hours more hiking at the small villaje of Soyllopata. . Lunch time. In the afternoon we walk for about 3-4 hours to reach Soraypampa our firsts camp site; which is located between the Humantay and Salkantay Glaciers.

Day 2: Soraypampa – Chaullay

After having an energy filled breakfast, we continue trekking towards the first pass of the trek at Apacheta (4,590 mtrs) which rests between the snow-capped peaks of Mount Humantay (5,800 m.) and Mount Salkantay (6,271 mtrs).   This is the most trying day of the trek and then it is mostly downhill from here.  When we finally arrive to the pass, our guide will take the opportunity to teach us about an ancient practice, the “offering to the Apus”, in which you will make offerings to the mountains while asking for safe passage.  On our way down the other side, we will make a stop in beautiful Huayracpunku, where we will enjoy our lunch amongst the gorgeous surroundings.  Our final destination for the day will be at Rayan Niyoc, about 3 hours more from there.  We will have dinner and sleep for the night.

Day 3: Chaullay – Sahuayaco - Santa Teresa.

Today will be a beautiful day as we pass through the ever thicker jungle terrain.  We will pass by the pueblos, Challhuay and Colpapampa on our way to our first destination for the day, Wiñaypocco, where we will have our lunch.  On the way there, we will pass waterfalls and tropical fruit plantations where we will be able to rest.  If time provides, there is a stunning waterfall where we will be able to take a dip to refresh ourselves after the long walk.  We will also come across the intersections of the Lluskamayu and Totora Rivers.  We may even be lucky enough to see the Peruvian national bird, the Andean “Cock of the Rocks”.

After lunch we will continue along the way to the place known as “la Playa” or, the Beach because of the sandy embankment of the river there.  It will be a relaxing 3 hour trek through the lush foliage of the rainforest.  Upon our arrival to “la Playa”, we will have our dinners and then prepare themselves for sleep. There is also electricity and a store here so we can take advantage of that.

Day 4: Santa Teresa - Hydroelectric Plant – Aguas Calientes

Early in the morning, we will have a typical breakfast and promptly catch a local bus to the pueblo, Santa Teresa (1,500 mtrs).  From here, we will begin hiking; it will be another 2 hours of downhill walking in the direction of the Hydro-Electric Plant.  On the way, we will pass various local plantations such as Coffee, Banana, and Passion Fruit.  We will also get our first views of the Sacred Lost City of the Inkas on the way.  Upon our arrival to the Hydro-Electric Plant, we will have a break. Afterwards we will continue hiking 3 hours through the Machu Picchu Santuary until we arrive at Aguas Calientes town.

When we arrive at Aguas Calientes, we immediately will be transferred to our hotel for the night.  We will then have some free time to either rest in our rooms or go exploring around the small jungle town.  There are things you can do:swim in the natural hot springs, for which the town was named, is a relaxing option.

You could also visit Mandor Falls or take on the Putukusi trail, which is so steep at some points that is necessary to climb large wooden ladders to pass.  The reward at the top is great though, as you will be provided with a breathtaking view of the ancient Citadel, Machu Picchu, in all of its glory, protected by dozens of tropical peaks.

Day 5: Machu Picchu

This is the most important day of the tour, you will catch the first bus up to Machu Pichu at 6 am.  The bus will take about 30 minutes to arrive there, at which point you start a 2 hour guided tour of the site.  Once the tour is over, you will have some time to explore on your own.

If you choose to take on Huayna Picchu, you can, but you will have needed to purchase a ticket before you arrive as only 400 persons are permitted per day.  It is about an hour and a half of trekking (round trip) and is completely worth the breathtaking view at the top.  You will need to come back down to Aguas Calientes in the afternoon, so that you can catch the return train to Cusco.
