The weather in the Inca Jungle changes a lot, especially on the first day; however, the weather is hot in Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, and Aguas Calientes.
All these towns are at a lower altitude than Cusco and are not above 2400 meters above sea level. The temperature varies during the year between 10°C and 25 °C. On the biking section, you should wear a raincoat.
The best time to visit Machu Picchu through the Inca Jungle is between March and November.
Although it may seem like it, this biking section is not difficult, but we always recommend that our passengers experience riding a bike. All this to have a better experience. However, we recommend our passengers have some biking experience.
No biking, rafting, or ziplining experience is necessary. But if you decide that you can’t handle any more activities, you can let our guide know and do other activities, take an alternative route, or rest.
While it is true that the Inca Jungle Trek never sells out, it is necessary to make your reservation in advance to buy your tickets to Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain.
These tickets sell out quickly, and booking is necessary approximately two months before departure. It is also essential to organize your trip with other activities and organize everything well.
In Santa Teresa – Cocalmayo, you will find the best hot springs; it only costs SOLES 10 or 3.5 US dollars.
It is not that difficult. It is a medium-exercise hike. However, we recommend taking only what you need for the trek. A light backpack is more comfortable for hiking in this area.
For this Inca Jungle adventure tour, 300 soles or 100 US dollars. This is because sometimes you may need money for water, snacks, extra drinks, or any emergency.
It is a one-and-a-half-hour hike. The first part is 30 minutes flat, then a 1-hour climb to Machu Picchu.
The lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu, opens at 6:00 am and closes at 5:00 pm.
Usually, people stay at Machu Picchu for 5 hours and then prefer to go to Aguas Calientes for lunch or spend some time in town.
