MACHUPICCHU BY CAR 2D/ 1N
The Machu Picchu by car excursion was born in 1999 as another alternate route due to the train limitations that lead to Aguas Calientes town, doing this tour, you will be contributing to the development of different towns that exist throughout that journey. In this excursion you will have a beautiful panorama, enjoy the outstanding landscapes and snow-capped mountains such as Chicon, Salkantay and Verónica that shows our peruvian andean highlands.

After a good breakfast we pick you up from your hotel at 7:30 am, in our private mobility and then travel to the Urubamba valley and later to Ollantaytambo, after a stop in this town we will continue our journey to the Malaga pass 4400 msnm (14 400 ft), where we will make a short stop to appreciate the snow-capped mountains of Verónica and Salkantay, from this place we will begin the descent through the high jungle to Santa Maria and then through the valley of the Aobamba river until we reach Santa Teresa town, here we will stop for lunch and to drink some water. After this we will continue our trip by car to the hydroelectric plant, from where we will start our walk on a flat path to Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu town), this walk is for an average 2 hours and in the distance we will have a view of Huayna Picchu mountain and some constructions of the city Inca of Machu Picchu.
