Huchuy Qosqo 2 Days
Day 1: Cusco / Tambomachay / Pumamarca
You will be picked up from your hotel at 5:00 a.m. for the transfer to Tambomachay. Our walk will begin from this point, and we will cross a high plains landscape, as far as the Sicllaccasa pass (4020 meters above sea level). We will walk along a trail leading to the Ccauca ravine, where we will arrive at an area of archaeological remains and local crops such as tarwi, as well as an extensive area of cacti. Continuing towards the Queullococha pass (4185 meters above sea level), around the trail we will have spectacular views of snowcapped peaks, including Veronica, Pitusiray and Chicon. As we approach Lake Queullococha, we will be able to spot Andean geese, ducks and the small fish that inhabit the lake. From here, we will ascend towards Challu Challu pass (4220 meters above sea level). From here, we will be able to see the Chinchero plains and the lakes Piuray and Qoricocha. We will then ascend to the fourth pass at Rumicruz (4230 meters above sea level), from where we will head to the Inca stone quarry (4220 meters above sea level), where the stone was quarried to build Huchuy Qosqo. We will then descend to the village of Pucamarca (4010 meters above sea level), arriving in the late afternoon. After dinner, we will camp here for the night.
Day 2: Huchuy Qosqo / Cusco
After breakfast, we will descend from our campsite and continue to Huchuy Qosqo. Along the way, we will be able to appreciate the remains of an Inca bridge, and part of an Inca highway. The geology of this canyon is composed of majestic rock formations. Huchuy Qosqo is an Inca archaeological complex containing impressive structures, including a large ceremonial center, from where we can enjoy a panoramic view of the Sacred Valley and the Vilcanota River. After visiting the ruins with our guide and taking photos, we will begin the descent, climbing down for approximately two hours as far as lamay, where we will enjoy a delicious lunch before boarding our transport for the return to Cusco.
