Hiking in the Inca Jungle Trail to Machu Picchu is the most adventurous trekking option in the Cusco area. It is also the most varied in terms of activities.

The trek includes a mountain bike descent, followed by level III and IV rafting, a jungle trek and an optional zip line. It concludes with a visit to Machu Picchu.

Most trekking companies offer the Inca Jungle Tour on a 4-day, 3-night itinerary, although it is possible to do the trek on a 3-day, 2-night itinerary (more on this later). Accommodation during the trek is in hostels or guesthouses, with one night in Aguas Calientes.

This trek is naturally aimed at adventurers who enjoy thrilling, adrenaline-pumping experiences.

More Details

The Inca Jungle Trek has a history related to us (Lorenzo Expeditions), because before this route existed, Lorenzo lived in Santa Maria.

The story begins as Lorenzo Ccahuana lived in Santa Maria, which is the actual starting point of the 2nd day of the Inca Jungle Trek. 12 years ago, Lorenzo sometimes guided tourists who ventured to visit Machu Picchu through the jungle, he would take them to San Teresa and from there the tourists would continue along the rail to Aguas Calientes.

He did this with his son for several years until he saw how many tourists were looking for him to guide them, that is how they created the company Lorenzo Expeditions to be able to guide and improve their services.

Today Lorenzo Expeditions not only operates Inca Jungle Trail, but also the main destinations in Cusco.

In the Peruvian subtropical Andes there are two main seasons: a dry season, from May to September, and a wet season, from October to April.

Inca jungle trekking can be done all year round, but heavy rains in January and February often cause landslides on the trail and road from Santa Maria to Santa Teresa, so Inca jungle trekking is usually closed at this time of year.

The best time for trekking in the Inca jungle is the dry season, which covers March/April/May/June/July/August/September October/November. These last months are especially good if you want to go rafting in Santa Maria.

Temperatures are fairly constant throughout the year, with warm days reaching 20 degrees Celsius. Nights and early mornings are cold (single digits and sometimes below freezing, especially in the dry season).


You should pack for the next few days of adventure.
-Trekking shoes, sun cream, sunscreen, light clothing 90% of the route is through hot and humid tropical zone, but the first hours during the cycling is cold, a light jacket is enough, insect repellents, hat and sunglasses.

First day: cold at the beginning of the cycling activity it is recommended to wear warm clothes, but as we go deeper into the jungle the weather changes from cold to hot and humid.
Second day: wear super light clothes to walk all day in this part of the tour will be very hot 25-27 degrees.
Third day: it is also recommended to wear light clothing as the heat and humidity continue.
Fourth day: light clothing and lots of sun protection cream.
