Trekking around Cusco and the Inca trail in Cusco, Peru by Amazonas Explorer

Trekking Around Cusco And The Inca Trail
From trekking the Inca trail to Machu Picchu too trekking around Ausengate and climbing Campo II (5700m) at Amazonas Explorer we try to be a wee bit different. For example we don't run as fixed departures the basic 4 day Inca trail that most companies operate, instead we prefer to operate a 5 day Inca trail which we believe is far better the reasons for this are explained at the end of this article. All our equpment is very high quality in many instances imported from the EU or the USA to ensure that our tents don't let in the rain, our thermorests don't deflate etc. We pride ourselves on our guides and their command of the English language sense of fun (and humour) plus their knowledge of the history and background to the way of life of the locals and their cultures and traditions. If you want the best trekking experience we are sure we are the people who will give you what you want. 5 Days v 4 days the benefits 1/ we avoid all the campsites used by the standard 4 day trip hence generally the one's we use are nearly empty 2/ During the day's trekking we don't see many if any of the other groups giving it a far more relaxed and wilderness experience. 3/ We arrive at Machu Picchu on day 4 and although we don't actually visit it that day we do walk through it before catching the bus down to Machu Picchu Pueblo and a lovely hotel for the night. 4/ On day 5 after a good nights' sleep in a comfortable hotel bed we have a full day in the ruins of Machu Picchu this ensures that everybody gets as much time as they want to wonder around and explore this modern wonder of the world. We return in the afternoon in the Vistadome train back to Cusco, a very relaxed and enjoyable way to finish the Inca trail. On a normal 4 day trek you have to walk for 2 hours to get to Machu Picchu then a quick tour round before catching the afternoon train back to Ollantaytambo and a bus transfer to Cusco. We believe that if you want to trek one of the most fantastic trails to one of the modern wonders of the world, as generally you're only going to do it once in your life, then lets make sure it's done properly.
