Excursions in Machu Pichu
Huayna Picchu, is known primarily as the backdrop in most of the captured images of Machu Picchu. Its name means "Young Mountain", as opposed to Machu Picchu, "Old Mountain". His ascent takes about an hour and The Temple of the Moon is the most important atractive place which is a complex of underground constructions probably intended for use by the elite.
The A to Z of adventure in the Andes starts in Aguas Calientes and sees you dangling on a zip line as you hurtle down a valley at dizzying speeds. This full-day experience is open to all thrill seekers who need to release their inner Indiana Jones. The journey begins with and early morning train ride into the dense jungle as we head for a hydroelectric power station high in the mountains. From there, well make our way to the Cola de Mono campsite, which will be our base for the day.
Climb into the heavens and enjoy majestic views that few humans have ever had the privilege of witnessing. Despite being within viewing range of Machu Picchu, the lost city of Llactapata has been on the tourist trail for only a decade as it was unearthed in 2003 by archaeologists using infra-red aerial photography.
