Head towards Huamanmarca and learn the historical background about the archaeological site before lunch. Descend to an altitude of 1,500 meters to arrive at the jungle town of Santa Maria, where you can rest your legs before a dinner of traditional food from Peru. 

Day 2: Santa Maria to Santa Teresa - Inca Trail and Zipline
Enjoy an early morning cup of indigenous coffee before hiking to Santa Rosa to relax in hammocks and admire the coca plantations on arrival. Navigate the steep slopes of the Inca Trail just as the Incas did thousands of years ago, and arrive in Qellomayo to catch a bus to an eco lodge where you will spend the night. Soar over the jungle canopy on a zipline of 2,500 meters of cables suspended above the tree tops, and go for a dip in the hot springs of Cocalmayo before dinner.

Transfer to the town of Lucmabamba for the start of a 3.5-hour hike to the top of Llactapata, far from the crowds. Marvel at the peak of Salkantay during a picnic lunch before the 2-hour hike to the hydroelectric train station, where you will catch the train to Aguas Calientes. Enjoy dinner in a local restaurant before for your overnight stay. 

Day 4: Machu Picchu to Cusco
Catch the first bus to Machu Picchu to watch the sunrise over the "Lost City of the Incas" and get detailed explanations about the ceremonial site from your guide.
