ITINERARY

 

We 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).

 

The 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 evening.

 

In this particular area, we do not meet with other wandering tourists. Only Andean people working their fields, and their children playing in their adobe houses. So if you want to enjoy cultural experiences as well as a great hike, this is the one day hike for you. Go back to Cusco. End of our services.
