Looking for an adventurous way to experience the lost city of Incas? Inca Jungle Trek 4 Days offers an unbeatable experience with a bit of everything from adventure to culture, nature and history on your way to Machu Picchu from Cusco. 

The trek begins with a downhill mountain biking, river rafting and zip lining. You will then be experiencing the history on the iconic Inca Trail on your way to Aguas Calientes town, the gateway to Machu Picchu citadel. 

Inca Jungle Trek to Machu Picchu will also be taking you through some of the lesser known and untouched archaeological sites. As locals, our guides have an extensive knowledge about these sites. 

Optionally you can enhance your Inca Jungle Trail Cusco experience in Machu Picchu by hiking up to Huayna Picchu. If you intend to hike Huayna Picchu, do advise us while booking the tour as it will give us enough time to reserve a space for you. 

This is a high altitude experience with the highest point of Inca Jungle Trek at 4350 metres above the sea level. We highly recommend you to spend 2-3 days in Cusco before the trek to avoid altitude sickness.
