We will pick up from your hotel at 07:30 a.m and depart at 08:00a.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, 30 minute 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. 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 pueblo, Santa Teresa, where a delicious lunch will be waiting for us at approximately 2 pm. after the lunch we will continue the driving until Hydroelectric Plant, when we arrive to the Hydroelectric Plant, we will walk 2and 30min - 3 hours to the town of aguas calientes (optional train to aguas calientes ), at this point you will be taken to the designated hostals and hotels. If we have any extra time to use, we can also go take a relaxing dip in the natural, heated waters of the hot baths. At 8 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. At that time, he will have a chance to go over the plan for the following day and answer any questions. Overnight.
