Machu picchu

  1. 1. Wellcome to Machu Picchu<br />We are an agency that has been offering quality tours in Peru and, especially, Cusco over the past 20 years. We started our operations in 1986 and there years we have acquired extensive experience and expertise developed in our field.<br />For this, we formed a team of trained professionals. Thus, we can be sure the level of service they are receiving<br />We began our operations back in 1981 and over there years we have gained lots of experience and developed expertise in our field. We take lots of pride in our service and our agency from the top of the chain all the way down to the bottom, so we can assure you of a quality experience every time.<br />To that end, we have formed a great staff of trained professionals. That way, we can be sure of the level of service that you are receiving for every step of the way. All the way from the helpful, bilingual reservations counter to the smiling face of your welcoming representative. Our guides (perhaps the most popular part of our tours) are all warm and experienced individuals who are guides for life, not passer by's. We can even offer you guides with expertise in various different languages... <br />Information abut Machu Picchu<br />July 24 1911 is known as the date of the "discovery" of the famous Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, an architectural treasure that had remained hidden for over four centuries under the lush vegetation of the Urubamba canyon. This find was made by the controversial American anthropologist and historian with a penchant for archaeology (or, if you like, the explorer), Professor Hiram Bingham of Yale University. Although the discovery is attributed to Bingham, according to the Cusco researcher, Simone Waisbard, the find was a chance one, since its first discoverers were apparently Enrique Palma, Gabino Sanchez and Agustin Lizarraga, who left their names engraved on one of the rocks there on July 14, 1901. Moreover, the Anglo Saxon archaeologist was really looking for the city of Vitco, the last refuge of the Incas, and their last bastion against the Spaniards. Thus, the importance of Bingham's discovery would lie in the scientific diffusion of the information. However, for the protagonist of this discovery, it was the crowning of an exhausting research effort, based on information obtained from local peasants, as well as on several years of traveling and exploring the area. Before Machu Picchu was discovered, it probably formed part of the Qollapani and Kutija estates. Over the years, the Q`ente hacienda took possession of the property. The discoverers, Palma, Sanchez and Lizarraga found a local indian, Anacleto Alvarez, who had been paying a rent of twelve soles a year for farming rights on the property during the last eight years, living there. The owners of the fundo would never have been able to explore the whole place, due to its sheer size, and especially because of its jagged topography. People had, in fact, been living in Machu Picchu without having an idea of its size nor of its importance, let alone being able to inform the world of these things.<br />Machu Picchu 2 Days <br /> <br />Day 1: <br /> <br />Beginning on the tour at 7:30am, we will start in the direction of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Our first stop along the way will be just outside of Cusco at the Ccorao Pass. That is a good vantage point where we can take a brief 10 minute break to get some nice views of the valley below us. We will need to continue on in order to make sure to have time to make it up to the Pisaq ruins, on the mountainside behind the pueblo. We will tour the ruins for about an hour before continuing on the journey down the Sacred Valley.<br /> Passing through Urubamba on the way, our next stop will be at Ollantaytambo, a picturesque little Andean pueblo nestled in amongst a number of high mountain peaks. We will also tour the ruins at Ollantaytambo for another hour or so before having our lunch (buffet) at about 2pm. Afterwards, we will load back up into the vehicle and continue on our way. The next stop will be another great view point known as Malaga Pass, which towers at 4,316m. We will get have some amazing views of the surrounding mountains and valleys from such a great spot. We will only briefly be stopping there though, because we will still have to continue on a bit more to the outer jungle town of Santa Teresa, where we should be arriving to at about 6:00 p.m. That is where we will spend the night, in a basic hostel. There are also some hot springs nearby called Cocalmayo that we can go and take a swim in. We will have dinner that night in a tourist restaurant in the pueblo. <br /> <br />Day 2: Machu Picchu<br /> <br />After having an early breakfast at 7:30am, we will get back in our van and back on course in order to make it to the hydroelectric train station by 8:30am. We will need to make it there by that time in order to catch our train to Aguas Calientes, which will last for about an hour, getting us to Aguas Calientes at about 9:30am or so. When we arrive we will be shown to our respective hotels. That is when your Machu Picchu guide will meet you to have a chat about the plan for the day. You will have the option of going up to the site by walking or by bus; you just need to be ready for your guided tour at 12pm (noon). Your guided tour will last for 2 hours minimum, and afterwards you will have some free time to explore around on your own for a while until about 4:30pm. That is the recommended time to go back down the mountain to Aguas Calientes. We will have our dinner together at 7:00pm at a designated restaurant before heading off to our hotels for the night. At dinner time we will also have a chat with the guide about the next days’ plan. <br /> <br />Day 3: Machu Picchu– Cusco <br /> <br />We will need to make it back to our train to the Hydroelectric station by 7am. When we arrive to Hydroelectric, we will transfer ourselves back over to our van which will take us back to Santa Teresa for one last 15 minute break. Take the opportunity to get some last minute drinks and snacks that you may want. We won´t be eating again until we have a buffet lunch in Urubamba a few hours later. After lunch, during the final stretch back to Cusco, we will take some time to have a guided tour of Moras, Moray and Chincheros. We will arrive back to Cusco at about 5:00pm approx on the third day. <br /> <br />Machu Picchu The service Includes:<br />Private tourist transport roundtrip from Cusco- Hydroelectric- Cusco<br />Train from Hydroelectric train station- Aguas Calientes- Hydroelectric train station <br />02 nights of lodging (w/ private bathroom, hot water 24 hours, suitcase storage at no additional cost) <br />03 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts <br />01 bus ride- either ascent or descent <br />Entrance fee to the citadel of Machu Picchu - Spanish/English speaking professional guide - 01 bus ride – either ascent or descent <br />Recommended Items to Bring: <br />Mosquito Repellant <br />Sun Block and hat <br />Long sleeve t-shirt <br />Bathing suit, towel and sandals if you wishes to visit the thermal baths <br />Flashlight <br />Poncho for the rain <br />Personal water bottle and snack<br />Camera with extra batteries <br />http://www.skyperu.com/<br />Wellcome to <a href="http://www.skyperu.com/"> Machu Picchu </a><br />We are an agency that has been offering quality tours in Peru and, especially, Cusco over the past 20 years.
