We will start in the morning from the city of Cusco to average about 07:00 am in our tourist transport heading south of Cusco, we will cross picturesque villages, on the way we will visit a pre-Inca cemetery in the sector of Ninamarca, where we can appreciate " The Chullpas" which are circular constructions where the ancient inhabitants buried their dead.

We will continue our trip to the town of Paucartambo, a beautiful town that was very important in the Colonia because it was a place for the exchange of products from the high Andean areas and the Amazon jungle. We will continue our journey to the Acjanacu Pass (3850 masl) which will be the highest point of our excursion.

From this opening we will initiate the descent towards the amazonian rainforest that due to the humidity generated in the area, the presence of the fog is almost every day reason why it is known as the Forest of Clouds, in this area we will be able to appreciate some species endemic as the spectacled bears and the cock of the Rocks as well as orchids, bromeliads, ferns among others.
