With over 1800 m of "flying time," our 6 cable, 2 hour guided zipline tour is sure to be an experience you will never forget! After a short hike to the highest mountain platform, we will take you zipping down through the Andes, reaching speeds of nearly 40km/h, while you take in the absolutely stunning surrounding landscapes and valleys below. Located just off the Inka Trail down river of Machu Picchu.The Best and cheaper way to go to Machu Picchu.

I spent 5 months in Peru and this is one of the highlights for me! I had the best time at this place and the zipping was just incredible! The guides are lovely and friendly and very safe!

Such friendly and accommodating staff. I'm terrified of heights, but it's such a beautiful area and the people definitely know what they're doing so you feel quite safe. Definitely check out the restaurant there - Chola y Che - they home make the bread!
