Here you will have a chance to get some breakfast and stock up on some things you might have forgotten to buy. At 08:15AM the bus heads towards Abra Malaga (4350 m.a.s.l.) which is the point of departure with the bikes, we will descend for 3 hrs., passing through small villages, orchards, rivers and streams, reaching the town Huamanmarca (1250 m.a.s.l.) around 12:00PM. approx. While descending it´s possible to see the vast changes in flora and fauna and the effect of oxygen level and altitude.
In Huamanmarcalunch will be served, a buffet restaurant who mainly uses local ingredients and prepares unique dishes. After a short break we´ll head towards Santa Maria where the group will divide into 2: the ones who booked the rafting and the ones who didn´t. The ones who did book the rafting will be picked and brought the rafting camp, where they will receive a briefing and instructions. Safety is a priority, so you will be handed out all the protection gear necessary, during the rafting a safety catamaran and cataraft will always accompany us. The rafting guides are well trained and have tons of experience on the river. Depending on the season the river will be between class III and III+, in case the river will be class IV or higher for security reasons we will cancel the rafting refund your payment. The travelers that didn’t book the rafting tour will go with an assistant guide in our private bus for 20 min. to the next town of Santa Rosa, from this point we will walk for 45 min. approx. until reaching the eco lodge called “La Choza”, there they will have the chance pick coca leaves, coffee beans and maybe some other fruits or vegetables.
At the end of the rafting adventure, the bus will be waiting the group to take them to the town of Santa Rosa where they as well will start the hike towards our jungle lodge La Choza. La Choza is a unique chance to enjoy the pure jungle in it´s best way, the guest family who receives you there still does things in the according to tradition, in a way you can say it´s travelling back in time for 200 years. Don´t worry though, there are rooms with bunk beds and normal mattresses for you to rest your night on, accompanied by an orchestra of jungle sounds.


Day 2: PISPITAYOC – COCALMAYO – SANTA TERESA
At around 7:00AM it´s going to be time to wake up, after which we´ll have the chance to enjoy a nice typical breakfast and nice cup of home grown and made coffee in the middle of nature. At around 8:00AM we´ll start walking along the banks of the river and start climbing for 30 min. toward an original Inca path. In this area a lot of Inca trails can be found, but the one we will walk is the only one who still maintains in good a condition. On our way we will see wild fruits, like: pine apple, pacay, avocado and many more. The area is surrounded by many types of birds and orchids; this ecosystem belongs to the high forest and is one of the most rich in terms of biodiversity of the Inca jungle. Once on top we will see the whole valley of the lower Urubamba. The group will walk down the mountain for approx. 2.30 hrs. until arriving at the village of Qellomayo, to have lunch and regain some of your energy. After the meal you will have free time to relax in a hammock and give your legs some rest. After a break we continue walking for 3 hrs. crossing farms, waterfalls and rivers (one river you will have to cross with a cable car). At around 4PM the group arrives at Cocalmayo or better known as the hot water springs of Santa Teresa. Cocalmayo offers several relaxing crystal clear hot springs, each with its own temperature. The sound of the river and the stars at night time make it a perfect scenery. After the hot springs the group will continue to walk for about 40 min. (or take a bus of you´d prefer) until reaching the town of Santa Teresa where you will check in to a nice comfortable hotel. After the dinner you all are invited to visit one of the bars to hang out with the other members of the group.

Here we will enjoy of a great lunch. And after a break we will continue walking along this great inca jungle tour for 3 hrs., enjoying beautiful waterfalls, going through coca and coffee farms along the railway until arriving at the town of Aguas Calientes around 4 pm.

The travelers that booked the hiking to HuaynaPicchu or Machu Picchu Mountain will be able to start this journey, the climbing lasts around 45 min. for Huayna Picchu, the way up is very steppy at some points but it’s worth it because the view from the top is absolutely breathtaking.
