Inca Jungle Trek
September 21, 2018
The Inca Jungle Trek has steadily become one of the most popular treks to Machu Picchu.
This is an all-terrain trip designed to get your pulse racing and your mind blown away with gorgeous scenery.
With so much choice in modern Cusco, what makes this trek a good option on the way to Machu Picchu?
The trip comprises an adrenalin pumping, downhill mountain biking experience, followed by white water rafting on Grade III and IV rapids, jungle trekking, and zip lining on the tallest trail in South America (don’t worry the zip lining is optional!).
It concludes with a 3-hour tour around Machu Picchu.
So, the Inca Jungle trek is the most adventurous trekking option in the Cusco district.
It is also as you can imagine the most diverse in terms of activities.
This trip is a very modern take on the treks to Machu Picchu and it naturally appeals to more adventurous personalities, people who like exciting adrenaline-filled experiences in as natural an environment as possible.
If you prefer to go on a traditional Andean trekking experience, hate mountain biking and would rather camp, then this trek is not for you.
I would maybe advise reading through these alternative treks to Machu Picchu or indeed, the Classic Inca Trail.
The standard trip duration on offer for the Inca Jungle Trek is a 4 day and 3 nights itinerary, however, there is an option to complete this trek on 3 days and 2 nights itinerary.
The accommodation on the trek comprises of hostels and quaint homestays, with one night in a hotel in the hub of Aguas Calientes.
There are two chief seasons in the sub-tropical Peruvian Andes – a dry period that runs from May to September, and a wet season from October to April.
The Inca Jungle trek can be completed all year round, nevertheless, heavy rains during January and February often lead to landslides on the trail and road that connect that main towns which can be very dangerous. Be wary of companies that offer to run this trip on extremely wet days.
