DAY 1.- We will pick you up at 08:00 a.m from your hotel.

From there, we will continue down a long, winding path to "Habra de Malaga", which stands at an altitude of 4,316 mtrs. From that vantage point, we will see some of the most amazing landscapes that Peru has to offer.
After a brief stop, we will begin our descent
into the thick jungle, passing through the different micro-climates that
combine the paradisiacal landscapes of the majestic snow-capped peaks with the
hot, tropical entrance to the rainforest. We will continue along our route
until we reach Alfamayó, where there is a nice, paved road in perfect condition
that we can use. We will need to take an unpaved road though, in order to
continue on in the direction of Santa Maria, which is located at an altitude of
1575 meters above sea level. We will take a moment to rest here before
continuing on to the small pueblo, Santa Teresa, where a delicious lunch will
be awaiting us at approximately 2 pm. There will be a variety of different
foods available to suit every taste.
Afterwards, at around 3:45 pm, we will return to the route in the direction of the train station at the nearby Hydroelectric Plant. The train will have us in Aguas Calientes by 5.30 pm, at which point you will be taken to the designated hostals and hotels. If we have any extra time to use, we can also go take a relaxing dip in the natural, heated waters of the hot baths. At 8 pm, though, it will be time to enjoy a hearty dinner along with the guide who will be taking you to the ancient citadel, Machu Picchu. At that time, he will have a chance to go over the plan for the following day and answer any questions.
