Travel to Vilcabamba & Machu Picchu Trek - 5 Days – The Cordillera Vilcabamba is a range of mountains that are home to many historic attractions that were of great importance to the development of Andean civilisation. This part of the Andes mountains was known to be a refuge for the last of the rebel Inkas fleeing from the Spanish invasion; the rebel group of Inkas was led by Manqo Inka II for nearly forty years.
Many lesser travelled trails exist in this part of the Andes; and it’s a rare occurence to encounter other trekkers or groups. Following on the trail is remote, very beautifully surrounded with landscapes and extremely quiet. Trekkers get to pass through snow-capped nevadas on a number of original and well-maintained Inca trails. The trek is typically completed over a 5-day itinerary program.
It takes most of the day to arrive at the mountain town of Huancacalle from Cusco; passing the abra Malaga en route. Parts of this region are closely surrounded by the Peruvian Amazon jungle. This also makes a nice climatic change to the trekking environment and there are some towns of the jungle nearby; like Quillabamba, Kiteni and Santa Teresa.
