Weekend Getaways from Aguas Calientes  

Instead of walking over the dozen footprints, I decided to combine downhill biking with hiking on old Inca trails. I started my journey by moving from Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire. I then headed to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which hosts many beautiful Inca remains. Moving up into the mountains towards the glacier, I reveled in this place’s scenic beauty. On the way I visited Abra Malaga, which is a habitat of endangered species of birds which live in Andean forest. This high pass has forests with extensive zones of bamboo and straw Andean meadow. This is where I started my downhill biking. The unspoiled jungles imbue you to take your time to immerse in its crude existence. I pedaled further to town of Santa Maria. I took some time to explore this quaint town, and ended the night with a lovely dinner and stay in a small hostel.


About Aguas Calientes

It is a small town at the bottom of the valley next to Machu Picchu and the principal access point to the site. It is an area cut off for the main roads. You won’t see many tourists visiting this area to only see this town. They arrive here only to visit Machu Picchu, which is about a 1.5 hours walk. This place is simple and coy, serene and quiet.
