Rise early for a 5 a.m. hotel pickup in Cusco and embark on your tour. Pass by a charming variety of towns along the way, notably anta’s pampa. This area is known for its agricultural, wide pampas, prairies, fertile valleys, and long rivers. Upon arrival to Cachora, meet with your trekking team, muleteers, mules/horses, and staff. After a brief rest and a light breakfast, the trek will begin. The first hours of the trek will be on mostly flat terrain until the lookout point and pass of Capuliyoc.

We had a wonderful experience with your company. The transport, tour guides, hotels and trains were wonderful. Diana was a great guide for us on the first day. Our Machu Picchu guide was great as well. I would definitely recommend them again. Your team did a wonderful job in all areas.
