Gay Expedition Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Cusco, Peru
Arrival in Cusco, Peru. We take time to acclimatize to the city’s 3450-metre high altitude.

 

Day 2 - Cusco, Peru
Today we drive to Tambomachay, an archaeological site just outside Cusco. After a short visit to the archaeological Inca sites of Tambomachay and Sacsayhuaman we take a short 2hr downhill walk back to Cusco. In the evening we prepare our equipment for the Inca trail.

 

Day 3 - Km 82 to Wayllabamba Camp (11km 4hrs)
This morning we set off on a journey from Cusco to Kilometer 82, where our trek begins. Today is a fairly leisurely hike. Along the way there are stunning views of snow-capped Veronica Peak (5860m). We will reach the campsite around 5 pm.

 

Day 4 - Wayllabamba Camp to Paqaymayo Camp (12km 8hrs)
Today is the most challenging part of the trek as we climb to Warminwanusca, or Dead Woman’s Pass (4200m). Along the way we will trek through some of the most spectacular mountain scenery to be seen anywhere in the Andes. This is the first and highest of three Andean passes on the Inca Trail, with breathtaking views over the snow-capped Vilcanota and Vilcabama mountain ranges.

 

Day 5 - Paqaymayo Camp to Winaywayna Camp (16km 9hrs)
Today we cross two more passes and see plenty of Inca ruins. The first pass is Runquraqay at 3,950m where, on a clear day you can catch a glimpse of the snow-capped Cordillera Vilcabamba. Then we hike through cloud forest on a gentle climb to the second pass of the day at 3,700m.

 

Day 6 - Winaywayna Camp to Sun Gate (6km 2hrs)
The day starts before dawn with breakfast served nice and early. We say farewell to our porters and then enter the Inti- Punku (sun gate) as the sun rises over Machu Picchu. After a guided tour of Machu Picchu we take the bus down to the small town of Aguas Calientes. After lunch we board the tourist train to Ollantaytambo town then take a bus transfer to Cusco.

 

Day 7 - Free Day in Cusco
Today is a free day to relax and explore the sights of Cusco.

 

Day 8 - Cusco to Puerto Maldonado
Today we take an early flight to Puerto Maldonado, a large town in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon. We board a motorized dugout canoe for our journey to the Madre de Dios reserve. We will stay in a forest lodge deep in the jungle.

 

Day 9 - Madre de Dios
After a leisurely breakfast we hike into the Tambopata Reserve. It is possible to observe a great variety of animals such as monkeys, macaws, black alligators and parrots. In the afternoon we visit the medicinal garden located very close to the lodge. We’ll learn about medicinal plants such as Ayahuasca, Chacruna, Chuchuhuasi and others, which are used and prepared by the locals to cure diseases.

 

Day 10 - Tambopata Reserve
Today we visit the mammal’s clay lick that is visited by white-lipped peccaries, deer, agouti, and tapir.

 

Day 11 - Puerto Maldonado to Cusco
After breakfast we return to Puerto Maldonado to take the flight back to Cusco. On the way back we’ll be able to observe the animal that are particularly active at this time of the day and hear the frequent cries of the howler monkeys.

 

Day 12 - Relax in Cusco

Trip Notes

Cusco may appear to have any gay bars. The flag of the Inca Empire is the same as the rainbow flag. There is a gay bar or two in Cusco but they are well hidden. Peru is a strongly conservative, catholic country although same sex relationships are legal LGBT people face discrimination in their daily lives. It is wise to be discreet and avoid public displays of affection.

Our Peruvian guides are aware and supportive of the ethos of Pride Expeditions and are ready to welcome you and show you the delights of Peru regardless of your sexuality, gender or identity. They will not want to delve into your personal life but will support you on this expedition. They are open and un-judgemental and you are welcome to be yourself and not hide who you are.
