Through the lens: Machu Picchu Jungle Trek

  • Machu Picchu Jungle Trek

Machu Picchu is an obvious South American highlight, but there are different ways you can experience it. One is the Jungle Trek, a four day and three night trek that provides the opportunity to do adventure activities along the way. (Rafting and/or ziplining) Below are the pictures of the adventure.

Golden hour at Machu Picchu.

It’s worth doing your research for a few days in Cusco before taking your visit. There are different permits for Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu mountain that you need to secure in advance. I unfortunately was rained on for the most of the three days, but the weather cleared up just in time to enjoy the day at the ancient city.

Digital stuff:
Sony RX 100mi
GoPro Hero 4 Silver
