Peru’s best-known hike visited by thousands of tourists every year. The classical 43-km trek leading to the Sacred Inca City of Machupicchu combines the visit of mysterious archaeological sites, amazing mountain scenery and lush cloud forest rich in Andean flora and fauna. Machupicchu is reached at sunrise on the fourth day.
Terra Quechua offers a diverse combination of traditional and alternative tours, treks, and adventure tourism. Traditional tours include sites such as the mysterious lost city and famous “New World Wonder” Machu Picchu, the Colonial and Incan remains in and around Cusco proper, the agricultural laboratory of Moray and the Maras Saltmines. We also feature adventure tourism such as rafting, bungee jumping, and mountain-biking. There are a variety of established or alternative treks spanning from the snowy mountaintops to the humid jungle. Here you can discover the glacial alpine peaks of Salkantay and Ausangate and the impressive Vilcanota and Apurimac rivers. We also operate in Puno, where you can sail the Titicaca, the word's highest navegable lake, and explore the the floating islands of Uros, and the Sillustani archeological remains, a legacy of the Tiahuanaco civilization. For people who share our spirit of conservation and enviromental consciousness, we offer tours including stays in the National Park of Manu (the “Biodiversity Capital of the World”) or Tambopata Natural park.
