Day 1 Cusco / Santa Maria (Mountain biking from Malaga Pass to Santa Maria)

After an early breakfast, passengers will be picked up and driven through the Sacred Valley to the Malaga Pass, (4,316m/13900ft.). This point offers stunning views of snow Wakaywillca peak and Veronica Glacier. Here bikers will receive a 20 minute briefing by our experienced tour guide before donning gloves and helmets (provided by us). Then the fun begins…freewheeling down quiet but challenging roads, past changing landscapes and ice-capped mountains; you won't want to catch your breath until the first pit stop in Alfamayo three hours later. We'll enjoy our box lunches while taking in the endless panoramas. After we will visit the recently-discovered alcheological site of Huamanmarca (falcon place), whose attributes include a ritual platform, and a precinct with four double jamb doorways facing the four cardinal points. We'll continue the descent to 1500 meters, where jungle´s edge rears up and the small but charming town of Santa Maria looms on the horizon. Tonight you´ll camp near the Urubamba River. Dinner will be served at the campsite.

Meals: BL/D


Day 2 Santa Maria / Santa Teresa (Hiking to Santa Teresa)

After breakfast, begin your ascent to the village of Santa Teresa. Enjoy the heady scents of coffee, tea, and cacao growing in the terraced fields along the way. Keep your camera handy as your path offers stunning views of the sacred mountain of Salcantay. With luck, you’ll also spot some of the tropical bird species indigenous to this lower elevation including toucans, motmots, and parakeets. After a short while you will reach the authentic Inca Trail, which winds around precipitous slopes and sheer drops for approximately half a mile. The descent continues for just over two hours until our stop for lunch. Make sure you have saved enough energy for the final stretch, a riverside walk beside the Rio Vilcanota until reaching Santa Teresa. Dinner will be served at campsite

Social & Environmental responsibility

Andean Skyline is committed to travelling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment. With your participation we can help conserve the area we visit and bring positive benefits to our host communities.

What you need to know on how to be a responsible traveller:

  • The natural environment is also very important. If in the bush we need to make our human waste, be sure is buried away from waterways. Burying or carrying out used toilet paper is a must. Tampons and sanitary pads must also be taken out of the area and disposed of appropriately. Minimize use of soap or shampoos in rivers and lakes - your local guide will let you know when using soap is unsuitable.
  • When trekking, many travellers take an extra plastic bag to pick up any rubbish that they see to improve the area and for their own rubbish. Rubbish may have to be carried until a suitable disposal opportunity in the next town.

Please try and minimize the waste of plastic water bottles. Consider packing a water filter, water purification tablets or iodine to purify drinking water. At some of our hotels there are large water 'bubbler' dispensers where you can refill your bottle with purified water for free or for a small fee
