After breakfast, you will be picked up from your and driven to Pachar. On arrival you will be given a safety briefing and the equipment needed for your via ferrata and zipline adventure. A via ferrata is a path used to climb a mountain with a safety system permanently installed. It will give you the chance to experience climbing without any previous experience and the opportunity to move through spectacular mountain scenery using minimum equipment. You will be permanently tied to a steel cable that runs through the entire route. Usually this does not require any climbing rope. Metal ladders, bridges and similar facilities are used. This helps maintain the physical difficulty of climbing while providing access to very high and extreme vertical sections of the mountain, that would usually only be accessible to experienced rock climbers. The climb is 400 metres. Once you have arrived to your lodge, dinner will be served with fantastic views over the valley and the sky.

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.

Machu Picchu is known as one of the most spiritual lands in the world, so why not go all out and Om your way through its ruins? Amazing Peru offers a seven-day yoga tour where visitors travel from Lima to Cuzco and finally to Machu Picchu, where they stay in the famed sanctuary Lodge hotel right outside of the ruins. They participate in multiple meditation and yoga sessions throughout the trip, but the highlight is a private session smack-dab in the middle of the ruins. Now that is an Om experience worth waiting for."
