DAY 1.- CUSCO – ABRA DE MALAGA – SANTA MARIA  (L) (D)

Passengers are picked up in the morning from respective hotels in our transport and we head out to the area of Santa Maria, travelling through the Sacred Valley and towns like Ollantytambo, arriving to the highest point known as Abra de Malaga located at 4350 meters above sea level and 150 Km from Cusco city.  We can enjoy an ascent of picturesque views of the Sacred Valley, and the opportunity to see the some-times snow-capped mountain as we descend directly to the high jungle of 1430 meters above sea level where the climate is warm and the area full of fruit-trees and lots of vegetation.  From the sector known as San Luis we start a descent on bicycle (the majority of the way is down-hill), passing communities of Alfamayo, Huamanmarca (an Incan archeological complex), Amaybamba, Huyro, Huayopata, Cocalpampa until Santa Maria where we get checked-in to our hostel for the first night.

After breakfast we start our trek in an area full of vegetation both up-hill and down-hill and where we can see many varieties of plants and trees like coffee, cocoa, banana, avocado, orange, mandarin, etc.  We can also see the work process of obtaining organic coffee in Quillabamba, and enjoy this warm climate in an unforgettable area of this trek that is jungle-like, full of green nature, fruit trees, pretty mountains, rivers, valleys and exotic animals and birds of the region, one of them being the Gallito de Las Rocas (a jungle Bird of the Rocks).  We finally arrive to Santa Teresa (1900 meters) where we will have our dinner, check-in to our hostel, and later have the option to visit the Hotsprings of Cocalmayo.
