Very Important: Rains and Flooding Across Peru

The Government of Peru continues to assess the effects from unseasonably heavy inland rains and associated flooding along the coastal areas of Peru. Rains are expected to continue for few more weeks. The most widespread, severe effects are in the northwest of the country, in the regions of Tumbes, Piura, Lambayeque, and La Libertad.

More concentrated incidents of flooding, mudslides, and inundated roads and bridges have occurred around Lima and the Ica Region. Some roads in the central highlands, especially in the regions of Ancash and Junin, have experienced travel delays and disruptions. Areas in the south of the country around Cusco and Arequipa have been affected less severely by the rains than areas farther north. Our Tours and treks in Cusco, Arequipa, Puno, Nazca, Puerto Maldonado and Manu have not been affected at all, the trains to Machu Picchu are running as normal, tours visiting sites and we don´t have delays neither cancelations of our trips.

We descend to the ruins of Sayacmarca ( Inaccessible Town), an intricate labyrinth of houses, plazas and water channels, perched precariously on a rocky spur overlooking the Aobamba valley. The Inca trail, now a massive buttressed structure of granite paving stones, continues along the steep upper fringes of the cloud forest through a colorful riot of orchids, bromeliads, mosses and ferns. At the third pass pinnacles topped with Inca viewing platforms overlook the archaeological complex of Phuyupatamarca (Cloud-level Town).Pausing to explore the maze of Inca stone towers, fountains and stairways that spills down the mountainside here, we begin a long descent through ever-changing layers of cloud forest.

  • 8.- 4 Days / 3 Nights package includes transport to Cusco, the train return depends on train company availability. Our preference would be a train departure between 4pm - 6pm but needs to have enough seats available to accomodate the group and usually this is not an issue except around large festivals such as Inti Raymi, Independence day and Easter. So there may be some slight variability around those dates and full high season, for which we appreciate your understanding.
  • 9.- 4 days-3 night -package with overnight in Aguas Calientes includes 09:22am train to Ollantaytambo on day 5. ( unless you specified at the time of booking a alternative afternoon train option ) Changes to schedules or dates when train tickets have been finalised incurs an administration charge of $10 per ticket. At times a change of date may only be possible with an upgrade and so the difference in price would need to be paid. So please email us to confirm if you would prefer the afternoon train on the 5th day with transport through to Cusco, instead of morning train to Ollantaytambo.
