pick you up from your hotel and drive through the
Andes, we leave from Piuray lake near to Chincheros
community to start hiking in the morning and capture
the sunlight on Mount Veronica and the Vilcabamba
range. The walk is first uphill, then downhill over
the altiplano overlooking the snowcapped mountains,
slowly descending to the ruins of Huchuyqosqo. These
ruins are well preserved with high Inca structures
made of stone and adobe (mud-brick).
beauty of these ruins is that they are built on the
mountain top. With clear blue skies above and many
streams running on either side. After relaxing in
the shade of the Que˝ua trees (Andean Oak) while
feasting on the prepared lunch, it’s time to
continue on the hike. We continue our trek across
the open terrain and begin the zigzag trail down the
face of the mountain, until we meat our vehicle at
Lamay, which will take us back to Cusco in the early

wandering tourists. Only Andean people working their
fields, and their children playing in their adobe
houses. So if you want to enjoy cultural experiences
