Itinerary

 

 We set off between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. enjoying a panoramic view over Cusco as we travel to Ollantaytambo from where we ascend up to Malaga Peak at a height of 4,360 meters. We leave the bus behind as we mount our bikes and begin the descent, enjoying the beautiful scenery of the immense valley that lies before us. The scenery changes from dry to leafy jungle. Half way down we visit the Inca ruins of Wamanmarka before arriving in Santa Maria where we spend the night in a basic lodge or camping. Dinner and a brief explication of the next days activities rounds off the evening.

 

  Day 2

After breakfast we start our trek along paths full of vegetation where we will observe the cultivation of coffee, cacao, fruits like papaya and mango and also coca. Following the trek we visit the Santa Teresa hot springs where we eat dinner and receive a brief explication of the next day’s activities. Overnight.
