Alternative Trekking Routes to Get to Machu Picchu



Hello! We contacted Machu Picchu Travel, luckily! We had not had any reference from the Agency, but we were encouraged by the fast online attention and because they registered that they had won the award for the best tour agency in Peru in one of the recent years. We arrived by direct flight from Bogotá to Cusco, Erika was waiting for us at the airport, a very kind and quite demanding girl with the schedules. We arrived at about 10 am, so we checked in at the San Agustin Plaza Hotel, for our view it was an excellent location. Then, we follow the advice of the YouTube channel “Alan por el Mundo” and have a delicious trout ceviche and a tenderloin in the restaurant “My way.” By 1 pm, our guide Jimmy passed by us to do the city tour; we visited: the cathedral, Qoricancha, Sacsayhuaman, and Tambomachay.

The second day was the most exciting for us, our guide “the cougar” passed by us at 3 am, heading to the mountain of 7 colors, we had breakfast and lunch at the same restaurant, a local one, entirely home-made and unfortunately we didn’t have the necessary amount of food for so much tourist bus that stopped there, for lunch there was practically only rice (it was buffet style). The mountain! Yes, we go up the familiar road and go down the Red Valley !, a wonder! We return very tiredly of the hotel before 3 pm. At about 7 pm we went to a restaurant located in the main square: “balconies II,” we had dinner with another Russian tourist, pizza, huancaina and ceviche, all delicious, accompanied by the classic chicha Morada and pisco sour.

Inca Jungle Trek to Machu Picchu

Together with my friends I was fortunate to know this natural wonder where you can see the difference in colors that resembles an Inca flag after a very early trip from Cusco we started walking about two hours until reaching the viewpoint is impressive Don’t forget to bring coca candy and some provisions for height. It would help if you were in good physical condition. Regarding the services of the agency, nothing to complain about a good breakfast and a delicious lunch, our very friendly day.

Excellent tour, the activities are very entertaining, especially rafting!

Our guide was Johans: very informed of everything and always very willing to help us and fresh!

Two bad things: the Santa Teresa lodging promised hot water and wifi, and none worked. The other is that I was the only Spanish speaker in the group. They do not match in any way, and luckily I speak English, but I would have had a horrible experience. Look at that!

We went with my boyfriend recommended by a friend who had done it in July. The best of our trip. The trekking is impressive; everything is organized, designed, and planned to be a unique experience in life.
