The Urubamba River runs from the high Andean ranges down through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, past Machu Picchu and into the jungle. You will be rafting on the “Chuquichuana” section of the river. This section has class III and IV rapids with big standing waves and holes. It makes for an exciting day of rafting and amazing scenery.
