Day 5 :Return   Machu Picchu  to  Cusco / Machupicchu Birdwatching.

Today after breakfast we climb in the bus to go to the archaeological zone to appreciate the incredible Incan

construction where we can see temples, agricultural parts, astrological zones, and many more things. After that

visit, we return to Aguas Calientes for lunch before our departure to Cusco where sadly but surely the tour comes to an end.


 Some tried the cuy, others the alpaca. The train ride to Aguas Calientes had us all smiling and yelling out “Another Torrent Duck!” or in Jose’s case, “Motmot!” Lucretia walked us through the phenomenal site of Machu Picchu; the impressively laid stones and the 360-degree view of jagged Andean peaks, well, it was almost too much to take in! Our
experiences in Aguas Calientes didn’t end there, as Mandor Valley offered a different perspective on the Incan site, as well as some awesome birding:
what about that mega flock?! And the grounds of Inkaterra (coffee in hand) — do we really have to leave?
Back to Ollantaytambo, and birding the pass of Abra Malaga birdwatching  with the high peak known as Veronica in her white dress. She’s always lovely, but especially so in the early morning sun. We birded both slopes: the drier west side, and the more humid east. A visit machupicchu to Maxima’s house, enjoying her warm potatoes, and we marvelled at her strong, yet lonely existence. Plus, y’all climbed the ridge above the pass (14,500′ or so), breaking trail through snow, to stand on hallowed ground. So quiet, peaceful, just the wind, the valley below… and soaring condors. It was a pleasure guiding this group. I hope to see you again soon. Until then, safe travels and always good birwatching.
