After breakfast, we will take an exhilarating adventure 250 meters above the ground.
Southern Peruvian Explorers has teamed up with the Vertikal Adventure Park in Santa Teresa to give you a thrilling experience that includes five of the highest, fastest, and safest ziplines in Peru! Before your flight through the forest begins, your guides will teach you proper zipping and safety techniques. After, we will securely harness you in and attach you by pulley to a double cable, safely anchored into two separate mountains. You will zip from mountain to mountain, crossing canyons and covering over 2500m/ 8202ft in total. The longest section you will pass is 1000m/ 3280ft. You will be flying, reaching a maximum speed of 70km/ 43mi per hour! You will also have the opportunity to scale a 50m/ 164ft climbing wall before we take a break for lunch. After our morning adventure, we will drive to a Hydroelectric dam, located in a forested valley near Machu Picchu. There, we will have lunch before continuing our journey on foot. We will follow the nearby train tracks for two hours to the town of Aguas Calientes, located directly below the ruins of Machu Picchu. In Aguas Calientes, we will dine together and then retire to our hostel accommodations, in anticipation of our big next day at Machu Picchu.
