Abra Malaga to Machupicchu Birding Tour 5D/4N

DAY 1: CUSCO TO THE SACRED VALLEY

Our day begins early when we pick you up at your hotel or the Cusco airport and head for the Sacred Valley. On our way to the town of Pisac we pass through farms and forest and stop at several good birding spots. After lunch in Urubamaba, we make our way to Ollantaytambo, birding as we go, looking for the Andean Swift, White-bellied Hummingbird, Green-tailed Trainbearer, Peruvian Sierra Finch, and Greenish-yellow Finch. We’ll also stop at a small lagoon to look for the Bearded Mountaineer, Rusty-fronted Canastero and many other endemic species.

We’ll spend the night in the Inca community of Ollantaytambo.

Lodging: Ollantaytambo Hotel

DAY 2: ABRA AMALAGA

After an early morning breakfast we’ll drive over the Abra Malaga Pass (4316m/14,160 ft) to the opposite side of the pass and the elfin forest at Canchayoc. Here we will look for the Diademed Tapaculo, Unstreaked Tit-Tyrant, Golden-collared Tanager, Violet-throated Starfrontlet, Parodi´s Hemispingus, Marcapata Spinetail, Tit-like Dacnis, Slaty (Cusco) Brush-Finch, Rufous-bellied Bush-Tyrant, Puna Snipe and many others. With luck we’ll hear and see the Red-and-White, Rufous and Undulated antpittas.

After a box lunch we’ll walk through vast, subalpine Polylepis woodland, birding for the rare Royal Cinclodes, Ash-breasted Tit-Tyrant and White-browed Tit-Spinetail. Others we will see are the Giant Conebill, Line-fronted and Junin canasteros, Puna (Andean) Tapaculo, Stripe-headed Antpitta, Thick-billed Siskin, Tawny Tit-Spinetail, Red-rumped Bush-Tyrant, Puna Thistletail and various species of ground-tyrants.

We’ll spend the morning on the mountainside of the Malaga Pass looking for the birds we didn’t see the previous day.

The two-hour train ride takes us along the scenic Urubamba River to the town of Aguas Calientes (2000m/6561ft). We may see Torrent Ducks, White-capped Dippers, and other water birds along the way. We’ll have relaxed dinner and spend the night in Aguas Calientes.
