If you could gather more than a thousand species of birds for you to watch in one single day, where would you be? Paradise? Almost. You would be in Peru, lodged at the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel; a world renowned hotel nestled in the middle of the Andes forests, right at the doorstep of Machu Picchu. Right from that very spot you will start enjoying bird watching, along with many other nature-related activities in a very special once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Machu Picchu is much more than a World Wonder. The diverse Inca Trails leading to Machu Picchu encompass a journey through history and wilderness which can be life changing, to say the least. Hundreds of different species such as the Andean Condor, the cock-of-the-rocks (Rupicola Peruviana) or the dozens of hummingbirds are listed among the most expected and celebrated birds to watch while you stay at this majestic archeological reserve.
Discover Machu Picchu and the adjacent Inca ruins, marveling at ancient history coming to life before your very own eyes. And while you’re at it, delve into the wonders of nature that surround the Lost City of the Incas. The very foundation of the Inca Empire was its close knit bond with nature. This is why they worshiped their Mother Earth (Pachamama) and gave their lives to protect her, maintain their surroundings and enjoy the fruits of the land everyday of their meaningful lives.
The point of discovering the nature that surrounds the ruins rather than focus only on the human aspect is much more meaningful, since this allows you to understand the inner feel of the Inca culture itself, the very pillars of their beliefs. The personnel at the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel are aware of that. For that reason, we arrange a very special tour that allows our visitors to doing something more than just bird watching: we will take you into expeditions where you’ll feel the magic of the mountains, the mystery of the forests, and the bond between human and nature.
The Sumaq Hotel is listed as the best ecotourism hotel where to stay and recharge your batteries for the next day of adventure. Our staff is willing to help you live such an amazing experience, and we know exactly where you can find each bird, each adventure, and each breathtaking landscape. The tour is ready, now the question is: are you?
