DAY 1: We leave Cusco in the morning Time: 5:30 - 6:00 a.m. I meet the hotel on our comfortable bus. On the way we visit the funerary towers or Chullpas de Ninamarca at 3750 masl and brief visit to Paucartambo, a folkloric town, a colonial bridge. We ascend to the upper area of Paucartambo. Acjanaco is the highest point at 4000 meters above sea level. Then we descend through the mysterious cloud forest, which houses a wide variety of flora and fauna full of beautiful orchids, heliconias and primitive ferns. We made a walk to appreciate the Cock of the Rocks (Rupicola peruviana) in the mating ritual. There is also possibility of observing Trogones (Trogón sp.), Quetzals, monkeys and the only bear of South America, the spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus). In the afternoon we will arrive at our lodge, in Pilcopata (550 m.n.m.) in our typical hostel in the area with hot water in the showers and private bathroom.
