Continuing on down the side of Mount Pampacona, we will eventually set up our campsite at the place known as Ututo
Day 3: Ututo- Vista Alegre
After enjoying a healthy breakfast, we will depart from our campsite at about 7:30 am and begin trekking down an old Inca path, which is still preserved all the way to Ichuwasi, where we will have lunch for the day. In the afternoon portion of our day's trek, we will begin to get some views of the jungle in the distance. We will continue on until we come to the peaceful, and suitably named, Vista Alegre or, "Happy View", which is where we will set up our campsite for the night
Day 4: Vista Alegre- Urpi Pata
Beginning our day with a delicious breakfast, we will begin a 4 hour hike though the beautiful terrains to arrive to our first stop, Tinkimayu, where we will have a rest and some food. The afternoon portion of our trek will take us for another 3 hours to Urpipata, the path weaving us through some truly beautiful scenery on the way the campsite. We will find the perfect spot to set up camp and prepare our dinner
Day 5: Urpi Pata- Espiritu Pampa
Departing at about 7:00 am, we will almost immediately come to the small typical pueblo, Concevidayoc. From there, it will only be about another 2 hours to reach the treks' destination, Espiritu Pampa. That is where we will spend the rest of the day, exploring around the area, having lunch and having a guided tour of this interesting site, which is known to have been the last refuge of the Inca Atahualpa. Later on in the night-time we will prepare our dinner and sleep beneath the stars, here in this historical location.
Day 6: Espíritu Pampa- Chihuanguire- Quiteni
We will wake up and have one last meal here at the site before departing in the direction of Chihuanguiri. To get there, we will walk through a breathtaking cloud forest replete with hanging bridges and spectacular views. We will come across some fruit, coffee and coca plantations as well. By this point we will be walking in some pretty thick forest area and it will be possible to see some parrots or monkeys or some other tropical fauna. After lunch, we'll hop onto a truck to catch a ride for a further 2 hours to Quiteni, where we will spend the night
Day 7: Quiteni- Santa Maria- Quillabamba
After an energy-restoring rest, we will depart in the direction of Quillabamba, visiting the attractions, Sambarae and 7 tinajas. We will be arriving to Quillabamba at about 4:00 pm, but we will be immediately moving on to Santa Maria, where we will camp for the night.
