Machu Picchu Cyclotourism and Trekking (4 days / 3 nights)

Get to Machu Picchu, mountain biking and hiking, in a combination of adventure, ecotourism and culture, has turned into a new attraction on the Cusco / Quillabamba asphalted road, linking with the village of Santa Teresa, the other access way to Machu Picchu, for its proximity and because it offers adventure tourism alternatives, such as canopy, cyclotourism, rafting and Cocalmayo´s Thermo-medicinal Baths.

The tour is a mixture of emotions, as we will go by bus up to the Málaga Mountain Pass ( 4,350 m .a.s.l.), to ride down on mountain bikes, on the road to the subtropical jungle and finally, hike to Machu Picchu Pueblo.
