The Machupicchu bus package offers the chance to experience puna (highest mountain range) and jungle landscapes, short walks, and the adventure of combining buses and hikes, taking full advantage of nature and getting to know the architecture and history of Peru.
The adventure begins with the pick up at your hotel in the city of Cusco at 7:00 am, to go to the Hydroelectric central, an approximately 8 hour ride. On the way we will pass by the majestic and beautiful city of Urubamba, which is surrounded by high and massive mountains which form a fascinating and unforgettable landscape; two hours later we will return to beautiful mountains, the most important being the Apu Abra Malaga, which is an imposing snow-capped because it is located in a very cold area. Arriving at Santa Maria we will have lunch and then we will pass by Santa Teresa, finishing the trip at the Hydroelectric.
Then we will begin the adventure trek for approximately two hours towards Aguas Calientes; on the way we will appreciate the wonderful beauty of nature, see the river that comes from Machupicchu, we will listen and enjoy the birdsinging, admiring ourselves with the infinity of flora and fauna.
We will arrive to the village of Machupicchu (Aguas Calientes) between 5:30 pm and 6:00 pm approximately; we will meet at the Main Square of said village and be picked up by the guide. Then go to our hotel to leave the luggage and then have some light dinner at the restaurant. Then there will be a coordination with the guide on the next day's tour to the Machupicchu complex and then we will have time to go back to Aguas Calientes and visit the thermal baths of the Inca, among other things you’d wish to do.
EXTRA ACTIVITY: At night in Aguas Calientes you can go to the hot pools.
We will get up early at 4:30 am for breakfast. Then head for the sacred ruins of Machupicchu; the adventure trek will be about an hour (if you want to go by bus it’s an additional US$24.00), an Inca route that will fill us with a lot of energy and spiritual power. At 7:00 am we will see the first rays of the sun at the ruins of Machupicchu, a fascinating event, and then we will have the professionally guided tour for 2:30 hours. Next, there will be free time to take pictures; at 11:00 am you return to Aguas Calientes and at 12:00 noon back to the Hydroelectric.
