Low-hanging Clouds Above the Urubamba River
Forth day morning in the Inka Trail to Machu Picchu. (4 days - 3 nights)
The route allows us to see the transition from Andean highlands and valleys to lush cloud forest, following along the Urubamba River.
The Urubamba river, which is one of the major tributaries of the Amazon river, has its source near Cuzco, Peru. From there it drains the Sacred Valley, home to many Inca ruins, and flows below Machu Picchu before descending into the Amazon basin.
