What you may not know is that there is a less crowded and emotionally charged alternative, with endless adventures during 4 days: the Inca Jungle 4 Days.

Departing from the classic conception of trekking as offered by Salkantay (but without leaving it aside), the Inca Jungle offers activities such as rafting, cycling, zipline and much more, without dealing with an excess of travelers and providing a new way to reach Machu Picchu.

The tour starts in Cusco for a one-hour drive to the town of Ollantaytambo, where you will also find some of the magical ruins of the sacred valley. Once there, you will be able to buy some things you may have missed.

The focus of this area is very touristy, so it is easy to find trekking poles and other items that can help you during the trip.

Buy a couple of snacks, try the highly recommended natural orange juice and get ready for the next drive, which will be a two-hour ascent through the Abra Malaga pass, at 4330 meters above sea level.
