DAY 2: Santa Teresa – Lucmabamba – Hydro – Aguas Calientes
DAY 3: Aguas Calientes to Machu Picchu and Guided Tour
Riding a bike through the Andes and gradually entering the jungle of Cusco is incredible to breathe fresh air and then ride the Inca Trail of Lucmabamba to have the first view of Machu Picchu. From the Lucmabamba mountain, in the Patallacta sector, you can glimpse Machu Picchu and the Aobamba valley. On the last day of exploring, the Inca citadel was built entirely of stone on top of the mountain and surrounded by the meandering Urubamba River. Its natural cliffs protect Machu Picchu, there are eight paths to reach the citadel, but we will take the best of the best to have a complete visitor experience.
The Inca Jungle Trek 3 Days starts at 06:30 to travel from Cusco to the Sacred Valley until reaching the MÁLAGA Pass. The experience of biking inside the CLOUD FOREST begins below the Malaga Pass. You spend about 20 minutes by car following the main road until you find the right location within the subtropical zone with adequate temperature.

The time of bicycle experience is 02 hours and a half (45 km/27.9 miles) until reaching the outskirts of the ruins of Huamanmarca “in the area; there is also the population of HUAMANMARCA.” In Huamanmarca, we load all the bicycles onto the vehicle to continue the trip to the town of SANTA MARIA, the “place of lunch and coffee zone.”
We start a new trip by local transport from SANTA MARIA to SANTA TERESA to our basic tourist accommodation in the afternoon.
HOW COULD WE MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO RELAX IN THE THERMAL BATHS OF COCALMAYO? We go in the afternoon to splash and relax in the hot springs of Cocalmayo. The trip takes around 18 minutes. We stayed for approximately 02 hours. Many visitors mention that the thermal baths after the Inca Jungle Trek 3 Days experience are the best because of the low presence of sulfur and the correct temperature. They have an incredible view of the area, really the best of the best.
