WHY TO CHOSE THIS TREK
* PERU, all things considered, offers the best biking route in the world
The main reason we like Inca Jungle to Machu picchu is that it is not the crowded Inca Trail:
* Combined biking and trekking
* climb high on sacred Veronica (, the apu mountain in the region, then descend through cloud forest to near jungle
* more elevation change, greater variety of habitat
* more contact with the indigenous jungle people
* hotsprings end of the trek
* cheaper than the Inca Trail
