Journey Through Cloud Forests and Enchanting Hiking Trails
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in our company van between 05:30-06:00 am. We’ll then embark on a journey along winding Andean roads, passing through quaint hamlets and towns until we reach Ajanaco, the gateway to the jungle at 3,500 meters above sea level. As we descend through the serpentine roads into the cloud forest, we’ll be surrounded by lush vegetation, including orchids, heliconias, and ferns.
Keep an eye out for the vibrant wildlife that inhabits this region, such as the Andean cock-of-the-rock, umbrella bird, trogon, quetzal, or oropendolas. Finally, we’ll arrive at our lodge, where you can unwind and rejuvenate after an exhilarating day of exploration.
Meals included: Breakfast en route, lunch in the cloud forest, and dinner at the lodge.
Discover Atalaya: Exploring the Mystical Machuwasi Lagoon and Enthralling Night Hikes
Following breakfast, we’ll embark on a brief hike to spot an array of birds and monkeys in their natural habitat. Next, we’ll take an hour-long bus ride to the port of Atalaya, where we’ll board a boat for a 30-minute journey to our lodge. Along the way, you can choose to take a refreshing dip in the river or indulge in a rejuvenating mud bath.
After lunch, we’ll visit the captivating Machuwasi Lagoon and set sail on a raft, where we may encounter shanshos, monkeys, reptiles, dwarf caimans, capybaras, tapirs, and other fascinating creatures. Following dinner, we’ll set out on an exhilarating evening hike to further explore the region’s natural wonders. We’ll spend the night at our comfortable lodge, surrounded by the beauty of the Amazon.
Parrot Clay Lick, Enriching Hikes, Atalaya Exploration, and Journey Back to Cusco
As the sun rises, we’ll embark on a captivating journey to the parrot clay lick, where we’ll witness the magnificent spectacle of these vibrant birds feasting on the nutrient-rich wall. Following a scrumptious breakfast, we’ll make our way back to Atalaya by boat, before hopping on the van for our return trip to Cusco. Along the way, we’ll encounter enchanting sights such as hummingbirds, orchids, waterfalls, and potentially spot other bird species or even monkeys. Leaving the verdant jungle behind, we’ll traverse the awe-inspiring Andean peaks, culminating in our arrival in Cusco between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
