Enjoy nature's remote wonders on a 3-day Huchuy Qosqo trek to Machu Picchu. Set out with llamas and pack mules through the highlands above Peru's Urubamba Valley, far removed from the usual tourist trails. Admire incredible mountain views along the way, stop to explore Inca monuments and witness a traditional weaving demonstration inside a local home. This incredible hiking tour includes a guided walk through Machu Picchu and a chance to climb Huayna Picchu (2,720 m/8,923 ft), a stunning peak that serves as backdrop to the famed Inca citadel.
This tour was fantastic, it's the best way to see Cusco. Our guide Renato was warm, friendly and spoke proficient English, very clear and easy to understand. He gave my husband and I a full walk-through of the plan the day before our trip. He also gave us the bags to put our clothes and other personal items in, as well as advice on what to eat since we'd arrived that morning and were most definitely going to be feeling the altitude on the hike. Everyone was very nice and helpful, the food was delicious and there was no shortage of it - no matter your appetite. The camping spot for our tent was gorgeous and the sleeping bag was setup on an air mattress, very comfy. The hotel accommodation the following night was lovely as well, we stayed at El Mapi in Aguas Calientes, an eco/sustainable tourism hotel. Last, but not least, Machu Picchu was amazing. It's much larger in person and just incredible.
Throughout the whole trip, Renato was funny, patient with our hiking pace, and told us about the history of the land, the people as well as the current state of our surroundings. It was really interesting and it adds a much richer layer to the experience.
Only one word of caution: check out the trails ahead of time and be sure you're up for it. This was challenging for me at times because I have asthma, but the crew was great. Everything that they could do to be of help, they did and more.
Great group of people, beautiful country, delicious food and rich history all around.
