Peru Water

Has anyone any beta on kayaking the rivers around Machu Picchu, specificaly the Rio Urabamba? Just hada peek at it and though in floodlike stage now it looks awesome!! Sounds like some good water in Colca Canyon as well. Cheers

Holmes, are you currently in Peru?

I'm headed to Ecuador the end of this month and was thinking about a trip down to Machu Picchu while I was there. Let me know what you make of the river scene there.

adios, Andy

It's beautiful down there. Serious read and run. If horizon line, be aware. Have fun! E-

if the urubamba through aguas calientes is too high, you might go down the river to sta. teresa, the next town down from macchu picchu. there's two class V creeks (potential multidays if you're motivated/can find mules) that run in the rainy season there, with a conveniently located hot springs at their confluence with the urubamba.
