Travel Guide

Travel Facts: An Inca Jungle Tour 4 Days

See the majestic beauty of Machu Picchu on a 4-day Inca Jungle Trek! Immerse yourself with KONDOR PATH TOURS in Peruvian culture and nature, see stunning vistas, and appreciate the ancient ruins.

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.

4 Days Inca Jungle Trek to Machu Picchu: 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, and we always recommend that our passengers experience riding a bike. All this to have a better experience. However, we recommend that our passengers have some biking experience.

No biking, rafting, or ziplining experience is necessary. But if you decide 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 in the area; it only costs 10 soles 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.

This Inca Jungle adventure tour costs 100 or 230 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 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m.

Usually, people stay at Machu Picchu for 2 hours and then prefer to go to Aguas Calientes for lunch or spend some time in town.

You can read our Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Picchu Differences

Of course, you can leave your luggage in our offices. You can bring it to your briefing or get it when you are picked up for your trek. The driver will take it back to our offices. You can also arrange to be dropped off at your hotel once you return from the Inca Jungle Trek.

Tipping is at your discretion but is always appreciated.

Groups are usually 10 to 12 people. This also depends on the time of year. The maximum is 12 people, and the minimum is 2.

Why should I choose the private option?

When traveling on our private tour option, the tour will be more at your pace than that of your friends or family. This tour is perfect for couples, families, or groups of friends. You will have your own private tour guide, meaning the hike is more personalized and tailored to your needs.

Wonderul site, great tour operator and excellent guide We had an evening flight so wanted to do something during the first half of the day, really glad we picked this half-day tour of the Sillustani ruins. The tour agent (Kondor Path Tours) was very flexible about our pickup time and dropoff options, so that really helped. We were able to arrange a later pickup in the morning that included all our luggage and then they dropped us off at the Juliaca airport after the tour. But the Sillustani towers themselves are a real treat to see and learn about all their history. The site itself is very serene and beautiful, with the lake in the background from the main viewpoint. Our tour guide (Richy/Ricardo) was excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. He gave us not only the ancient history of Sillustani and the adjoining areas, but also a more contemporary history of Peru and the Puno region I have to add that he went over and above by even helping us to check our bags in at JUL airport!

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.

Proffecional company and perfect guide Kondor Path Tours are so proffecional and easy to work with. We went with them on the 2 days short Inca trail to Machu Picchu with our three children. The correspondence was great and everything was perfectly planned in every detail. Our guide Alfredo was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant to be around!

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour. The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member. The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!

Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
