This is not only an alternative Inca Trail, it is the most original and exclusive: following paths only recently discovered. The Inca Jungle trail can be done in either 4 or 3 days and is a mixture of both biking, Rafting, and hiking to Machu Picchu. It is suitable for anyone with a sense of adventure and curiosity.
We have already implemented one such program which seeks to re-educate the local farmers about planting and harvesting techniques which will slow the deforestation process and recuperate eroded soils in our national rainforest. We have also taken steps to help in the reduction of rural poverty, which has become a serious problem in our region of Peru.

Wake at 7am, have breakfast before taking private transport to Lucmabamba town, the entrance to another Inca Trail, which was discovered just a few years ago. We are the only tour company to walk this part of the Inca Trail, so for three and a half hours you will feel like Adam and Eve walking amidst parrots in this tranquil Garden of Eden. You will be rewarded for your efforts with a view of Machu Picchu from the top of Llactapata, flanked by the grotesque peak of Salkantay. Your picnic here is unlikely to be forgotten for a while, gazing down on all those tourists who took the traditional Inca route because they did not know! It is only about a two hour walk down to the Hydroelectric train station where the train departs for Aguas Calientes, the base town for Machu Picchu. Included is the entrance to the hot springs and dinner at a local restaurant before retiring to your hostel with hot water and private bathrooms.

An early rise today, as you will take the first bus to Machu Picchu at 5.30am, reaching Machu Picchu at 6am, which with luck will coincide with a beautiful sunrise! Your guide will leave no stones unturned but feel free to challenge their knowledge of Inca history. Afterwards you have free time to dally with the llamas and show off your photographic skills.
