Day 6. Wayllabamba - Pacaymayu (B, L & D)

We will see outstanding views to the east of the Huayanay peaks and to the west of the rugged Vilcabamba Range. After breakfast, we shall begin the climb up through the first pass at 4200 m/13,750 feet at Warmiwanusqa. Passing 3 ecological zones such as the Yunga, Quechua and Puna, we shall ascend 1000 metres in 5 hours. Lunch will be taken before the final two sections of ascent. Upon reaching the summit of Dead Woman's Pass, we shall celebrate our achievement by paying homage to the Apus or mountain gods, before descending into camp. Welcoming dinner near Pacaymayu.

Day 8. Winayhuayna - Machu Picchu - Cuzco (B)

Early morning wake up at 4:30 AM for breakfast and to begin the final trek to Intipunku, and the first site of the archaeological complex of Machu Picchu. We will descend rapidly from cloud forest into high jungle habitat. Orchids and hummingbirds are commonly seen along this spectacular section of the trail high above the river. We will arrive at Intipunko "Gate of the Sun" to observe the sunrise over Machu Picchu from an elevated vantage point. We will then continue down to the royal road and at last the "Lost City of the Incas".
Begin your tour of Machu Picchu. Built by the Inca Pachacutec, and comprising stone blocks fitted with masterful precision, Machu Picchu harmoniously blends into the mountain landscape. There are many theories as to the origins behind Machu Picchu but three of the most popular ideas include a temple to the sun, a fortress against the jungle inhabitants and a sanctuary for the Incas. This fabulous city holds houses, temples, warehouses, a large central square and all connected by narrow roads and steps, which is surrounded by terraces cut into the mountain side which were used for agriculture. We shall visit the Main Plaza, the Royal Quarters, the Temple of Three Windows, the Circular Tower and the Sacred Sun Dial and Burial Grounds. After the guided tour, return to Cuzco.

Meals: B

Day 9. Cuzco - Tambopata Jungle (B, L & D)

Transfer to the airport for the flight to Puerto Maldonado. Reception and transfer from the airport. Short journey by road and then transfer to the Tambopata River. Travel by motor boat along the river. During the trip we may see caiman, turtles and waterfowl, etc. After approx. 3 hours we will arrive at the lodge where we will be received with a welcome drink. We are now deep inside pristine primary rainforest and surrounded by the wonderful sounds. After a short rest we will have a short hike in time to enjoy a jungle sunset at Sunset Point. After returning we will have dinner, at which the Resident Naturalists (RNs) will be available to answer questions or brief us on the Amazon rainforest.

Meals: B, L & D

Day 10. Tambopata Jungle (B, L & D)

After an early breakfast, (during which we can hear the howler monkeys calling) guided by one of our RNs, we will start a 3½ miles hike to Cocococha oxbow lake. On the way we will observe exotic plants and insects, colourful butterflies and birds, monkeys and, with luck, perhaps even some of the large mammals. At the lake, canoes will be available for a ride around it watching the wildlife on the shoreline, where we shall see Hoatzin (ancient birds) and hopefully giant otters. Return to the lodge for a late lunch. Afternoon free for relaxing and independent activities. After dinner, we will board a canoe for a short night ride to spot caiman on the river banks by flashlight.
