The travel back to Cuzco was another 3h boat, 1h car, short ferry ride, 2h van and 1h flight from Puerto Maldonado. Next up Cuzco and Machu Picchu. The seven days jungle tour was a great way to experience the different ecosystems from the dry mountains to the cloud forest and the Amazon basin. The long hours on the boat could get a bit repetitive, but the landscape was very beautiful and we got to see some great wildlife, although it required some patience to look for it. But with giant river otters, jaguar, capybaras, monkeys and many colorful birds it was worth it.

After a relaxed day in Cuzco, realizing that on 3.300m even the 200m difference to Sacsaywamán is a though hike 🙂
