INCA JUNGLE TO MACHU PICCHU 3 DAYS ADVENTURE – BIKING AND TREKKING EXPERIENCE

Machu Picchu. Imbued in a magical silence,120km (74mi) away from Cusco, on the slopes above the Urubamba River, lies one of the world`s most extraordinary archaeological sites: Machu Picchu (2400m / 7872ft). Is probably the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire. It is thought that the city was built by the Sapaq Inca Pachacutec, starting about the year 1440,and was inhabited until the Spanish conquest of Perù in 1532. Archaeological evidence (along with recent work on early colonial documents) shows that Machu Picchu was not a conventional city, but a country retreating town for the Inca nobility. The site has a large palace and temples dedicated to Inca deities around a courtyard, with other buildings for the supporting staff. It is estimated that a maximum of only 750 people dwelt in Machu Picchu at one time, and probably only a small fraction of that number lived in the town during the rainy season and when none of the nobility were visiting.
Machu Picchu, its name comes from the ancient Quechua word that means “old mountain”. This site was built entirely of stone, using every space in harmony with functionalism. Machu Picchu has been known as the “lost city of the incas”.
The most common way is to take the train to Machu Picchu in the morning, explore the ruins and in the afternoon, returning to Cusco. And other better option is to stay overnight in Aguas Calientes in order to get very early at the complex.
Machu Picchu is a trip very deep towards the serenity of the soul, to the eternal fusion with the cosmos. There we are able to feel our own fragility. It is one of the greatest marvels of South America. A resting place of butterflies at the epicenter of the great circle of life. “One more miracle”, as the poet Pablo Neruda wrote.

During the first two hours (the cycling route) it will be quite cold because we will be at a high altitude.

There are two options for your return trip to Cusco. The most popular and safe option is the train. The second, and more affordable option, is by car.

By train: There are two options if you chose to travel by train. The first is from Machupicchu town to Cuscu (about 4 hours of travel) and the second option is from Machupicchu Town to Ollantaytambo (about 2 hours of travel). From the station in Ollantaytambo, it is very easy and affordable ($5 USD) to find a car that will take you straight to Cusco (in total, about 3 ½ hours of travel)

To see train availability and prices, please visit: www.perurail.com / www.incarail.com

By car: If you wish to return by car, you must first walk for 3 hours from Machupicchu Town to the hydroelectric power plant. At the power plant, there are cars waiting to take passengers to Cusco. The price to get to Cusco is about $20-25 USD and the trip takes around 7 hours. The disadvantage of returning to Cusco in a car is that you will have to leave the archaeological ruins of Machupicchu no later than 10am.

Please note: this option is only available from April to December. From December to March, this option is not recommended due to levels of high risk.
