Day by Day

Reception and welcome at the Maiquetía International Airport, then air connection in the afternoon to the City of Puerto Ordaz. From here we’ll take a private transport which will take us to our hotel in Ciudad Bolívar.

The experience begins by taking a plane to the community of Uruyen for a duration of 2:30 hours. There we will be able to visit the Uruyen canyon, review the necessary gear and equipment for the excursion and have a meeting prior to the main activity.

On this day we will have the pleasure of meeting our porter friends, who will help us make the experience much more comfortable and pleasant.

Overnight in Camp with bathrooms.

We will begin the walk through the savannah and ascend to El Peñón Camp at the foot of the southern wall of Auyantepuy.

Overnight in tents. Approximate walking time: 7-8 hours.

We begin by walking up a steep and technical ascent, through a maze of huge rocks and exotic natural gardens. Then we summit the Tepuy and descend to the camp. We will spend the night in a camp known as El Oso, in the vicinity of the Naranja River and already on the great Auyan plateau.

Overnight in tents. Approximate walking time: 7 hours.

We will continue our walk through the curious profile of the summit of the tepuy to an area of spectacular landscape known as “Dragon”. We will establish camp on the banks of the Churún River, in time to enjoy this inhospitable place.

Overnight in tents. Approximate walking time: 4 hours.

Full day to regain strength, exploration and interpretation of the natural environment, visiting the surroundings of the camp and exploring the bed of the Churún river, at the foot of the 2nd wall.

Overnight in tents at the Dragon camp.

We will ascend to the second wall and after overcoming the “Labyrinth” and the area known as the “Campos de Arroz”, we will arrive at the campsite known as “Pluviometer”.

Overnight in tents. Approximate walking time: 7-8 hours.

The walk continues until finally reaching the edge of the wall in the area where the Kerepacupai River rushes from the summit of Auyantepui, forming the highest waterfall in the world: Angel Falls. Our camp is established on the banks of the river.

Overnight in tents. Approximate walking time: 7-8 hours.

With the first light we begin the descent of the gigantic wall. On this day we will overcome the longest rappels and enjoy the best views of the waterfall and the impressive valley of the Churún river. Towards the end of the afternoon we will arrive at the overnight site on a ledge protected from the elements, where we will spend the night.

Bivouac. Approximate time of the activity. 7-8 hours.

On the final section of the descent, we will cross areas increasingly covered with vegetation until we reach the dense jungle that covers the foot of the tepuy, which we must traverse until we finally reach the banks of the Churún river, where we spend the night in hammocks with mosquito net.

On board a small boat called Curiara, we will begin the journey through the Churún, Carrao and Akanan rivers, until we reach the Iwanamerú rapids, where we will spend the night in hammocks with mosquito nets.

Final section in Curiara, we will sail up the Akanan river, until we reach the community of Kamarata, where we will have the opportunity to share the farewell night with the porters.

FAQ

All international flights into Peru route through Lima, with connections to most
destinations throughout the country. Some flights out of North America and Europe
arrive late in the evening after the last flight to Cusco has departed. In these cases, an
overnight stay in Lima will be required before proceeding to Cusco. Your Inkati Peru
travel specialist will be happy to assist you with making any necessary hotel
arrangements.
Traveling to Cusco: There are four airline carriers that fly round-trip between Lima and
Cusco: LATAM Airlines, Sky and Viva Air. All offer similar schedules and in-flight
service, but we usually recommend either LATAM Airlines as they tend to be the most
helpful when unexpected flight cancellations or delays occur. Your Inkati Peru travel
specialist can also assist you in selecting the best flight options for your trip.

We always encourage our guests to extend their trips with, at minimum, a couple of pre-
adventure days in Cusco to provide time for altitude acclimatization while they explore
the remarkable beauty of the city. Depending on availability, we would be happy to
book accommodations for you at the best option hotels. We also recommend that our
guests plan an extra night at Machu Picchu for a more comprehensive exploration of the
citadel.
Inkati Peru can also help you plan and book any additional accommodations or
excursions that you might like to experience during your time in Peru. We offer a
collection of trip extensions to some of Peru’s other notable destinations: Lima,
Arequipa, Nazca, Lake Titicaca, the Amazon and of course, within Cusco and The
Sacred Valley. Please alert your Inkati Peru travel specialist if you would like to build
any additional experiences into your trip.

All guests are required to provide valid proof of travel insurance, including specific
coverage for adventure travel activities in Peru.

On any Trek to Machu Picchu or alternative trek, guests hike 4-8 hours per day on six
(6) consecutive days along rugged mountain trails and at various elevations (up to
15,000’/4,500m). Pre-trip preparation should include challenging cardiovascular
exercise including regular hikes on varied terrain, and a healthy, balanced diet. Well-
worn hiking boots and additional acclimatization nights in Cusco or the Sacred Valley
before the trek are both highly recommended. Having said this, please be assured that
all guests are encouraged to hike at their own pace and take breaks whenever needed to
ensure a successful and enjoyable trek for all.

The weather in Cusco is defined by two seasons: Rainy and dry. Wet season typically
runs from November through March, with average temperatures of approximately 56°F
(13.3°C). Occasional showers are expected throughout this period, with the heaviest
rains occurring in January and February. Dry season is normally from April through
October or November, during which time you can expect mostly sunny days followed
by cooler nights and the possibility of morning frost. The average daytime temperature
around this time is 49.5°F (9.7°C). July is regularly recorded as the coldest month of the
year; in some locations night temperatures can drop as low as 32°F (0°C).
Keep in mind that Cusco is located in a high-mountain environment where variable
weather is expected. Rain can occur in the middle of July just as sun may appear in
January, so it is always important to be prepared for four season in one day.

Altitude sickness is most common at elevations above 6,500’/1,900m and results from
the body adjusting to a decreased amount of oxygen. To combat this, Inkati Peru
recommends spending some nights in Cusco or the sacred valley prior to the start of any
adventure program. In addition, it is always important to drink plenty of water. In case
of extreme altitude sickness, both oxygen and First Aid Kid are available as needed.

Once you have booked your Inkati Peru Trip, you will receive a packing list that
outlines the items that you will need for the trip. We recommend packing your
belongings in a regular size suitcase or duffel bag for the duration of the program. You
will only need a day-pack during the adventures parts.
Please be aware that the train company to Machu Picchu imposes a baggage weight
limit of 12kg/27lbs per person. Inkati Peru offers duffel bags on loan; please request one
at the beginning of the program in Cusco if you think that your luggage will exceed this
weight. Extra luggage can be stored safely at your hotel in Cusco.

Although most of Peru operates with an electrical current of 220V. Most of the devices
use to have incorporated the convertor in their chargers.

Second only to the Himalayas, the Andes rise to over 19,000’/5,800m. The rugged
Andean landscape is comprised of dramatic mountain ranges separated by deep vertical
canyons and green valleys. The eastern slopes of the Andes are veiled in cloud forests
which receive plentiful rainfall as they drop into the Amazon Basin.
All of the trails are well-maintained and safe. Adventurers can expect sometimes to
cross sections of original Inca Trails depending on the route , this in addition to newer

paths that may sometimes include steep, rocky,

The official currency of Peru is the “Sol” (S/.), although US Dollars are also widely
accepted. If you are carrying cash be sure to bring crisp, unsullied US bills since torn or
defaced currency will not be accepted locally. ATM machines that dispense both US
Dollars and Nuevos Soles are readily available in the city of Cusco. Credit cards are
generally accepted only in the more upscale restaurants and shops in Cusco and the
Sacred Valley. Note: VISA is most widely accepted, followed by MasterCard.
American Express is accepted in very few places.
During your trip in Peru in adventure parts, you will only need to carry a small amount
of cash for souvenirs and minor personal expenses. We recommend taking Nuevos
Soles in small denominations for purchases en route. Optional gratuities for trip leaders,
assistant guides, and any other staff can be given in either currency.

Gratuities are not included in the trip cost; but we leave this to your discretion.

We are sure you have already told friends and family about your trip. Please take a
moment (or more!) and tell us about the highlights of your journey, about your
companions and guides, and anything else that made your journey unique. Please share
your photos with us too and remember to tag us with #experiencemlp.
