If you like adventure, Cusco is a greeeeeat place to experience new stuff while enjoying the best views.
I have only tried a couple, but here is my insight on them.
Vía Ferrata and Zip line
One of the best experiences of my life, if you’re a fan on adrenaline like me this one if for you. See my photo there walking on top of a cable? Damn…I could see myself falling down so easily (of course you have a “security” belt connected to the rail but it won’t keep you from crashing into the rocks behind you). They actually make you sign a paper taking responsibility for your life. Still, those few minutes you have to get full control or lose it, is just amazing.
The whole part of trekking and climbing the mountain is the Via Ferrata, once you’re at the top you come down by zip line, 6 to be precise. I have to be honest…I hated it. I’m a very anxious person and I could not press “softly” the damn cable so I stopped so fast it kinda hurt – and was also scary -. I don’t know if I’d try this kind of ziplining again. But I know that a lot of people enjoyed it, including my friends. So it’s up to you.
This tour I took it in Urubamba. Can’t remember the agency though, I’m sorry.
This one was fun, but probably wouldn’t do it again, not in a while. Adrenaline at its best. The Bungee jump in Cusco is the highest in Latin America, it has 122 meters of height.
The agency I do it with is called Action Valley , I think it’s the only one, not sure about this, but this is the one you should try.
Important thing to know: Once you have paid there’s no going back (or at least your money isn’t coming back)
Tip: It’s just 7 seconds of fear, after that its over. Try not to get tense, I did and my neck hurt for like a week. Just relax.
Tip 2: Bring a jacket, I had to borrow one from one of the guys there. It’s damn cold.
This is the video they took (it’s like 50 bucks, but so worthy if you haven’t brought a Gopro)
And here is a collage I made.
