VILCABAMBA TO MACHU PICCHU 5D/4N

Machu Picchu is our destination and the route to get there provides some of the best hiking in the Andes! Vitcos is our start point and a great Inca site to explore, known as the last Inca strong hold, we continue onwards over high altitude passes, with phenomenal panoramas, discovering a wonderful variety of flora and fauna. From lush, tropical coffee and cocoa growing climates, we climb to observe colder higher snow-capped peaks. Be acclimatised and prepare to be amazed!

 
 

                      The sights were unforgettable. Incredible microclimates with endless kinds of flora and fauna, butterflies, waterfalls, wild strawberries, racing clouds, tree canopies. Thousands of years old aqueducts and.                              ancient Incan ruins, meeting local people along the way. We were awed by the numerous valleys, towering mountain ranges, glaciers, and our summit views. On our 1st night of camp, our bright view of                             the milky-way galaxy was incredible. We loved touring the coffee plantation, zip-lining and very much enjoyed the hot springs on our 3rd day. Our camping tents were perfectly comfortable. Our train ride on Peru Rail and accommodations in Cola de Mono and Aguas Calientes were also very nice. Machu Picchu and its history was unreal and climbing Huayna Picchu was totally worth it!
