(4 DAYS)
(From Andes to the Jungle)


Season runs from May to December- Suitable for children over 10 years old.

Inti Cocha is one of the 13 lakes that form part of the indigenous Pampallacta community. It is located in the highlands of the Sacred Valley, 2 hours from the imperial city of Cusco and one hour from the town of Urubamba. The local community is very welcoming and this distinctly Andean landscape is truly the most impressive, with all lakes located over 13,500 feet above sea level. In this particular lake, fishing is very exciting and fun because of the abundance of rainbow trout. The size of trout ranges from 25 to 50 cm (10 to 12 inches) and there is great potential to catch larger trout.

Pick up from your accommodations at 7:00 AM and depart Cusco, heading to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will pass through the beautiful, historic town of Pisac, an important archeological site in the Sacred Valley, and continue driving 40 minutes more to our departure point. Upon arrival, we will start a short, easy walk of 20 minutes walk through the mountains to get to the best spot for fishing.

We will arrive at Inti Cocha lake around 9:00 AM and will immediately assemble all the required equipment. We tailor our fishing programs to our clients’ requirements, and for this trip we will be fishing from the shore around the lake looking for trout. You will have the opportunity to fish all morning in this stunning environment.

At 12:00 PM we will take a break, have lunch and in the afternoon, we will continue to fish around the shore of the lake until 2:30 PM. At 3:00 PM, we will return to Cusco after another journey through the wondrous Sacred Valley of the Incas, arriving around 6:00 PM to your accommodations.

Optional: we can rent horses from the local community for riding access to the lake.
