Description

Another fascinating alternative to reach the marvelous architectural complex of Machu Picchu is the 'Huchuy Qosqo Connection Machu Picchu Tour,' which, for many, is the main objective of visiting Peru. In this alternate route, we'll pass through high Andean villages, the intriguing archaeological center of Huchuy Qosqo (small village) featuring various stone and clay constructions, possibly the last dwelling place of Inca Wiracocha. We'll traverse the sacred valley of the Incas, marveling at its impressive landscapes adorned with abundant flora and fauna typical of Cusco.

Itinerary

The excursion will start in Cusco; we will pick you up in our tourist transport around 6:00 in the morning. We’ll head towards Tambomachay, where the trek to Huchuy Qosqo will commence. During the journey, you’ll witness various high-Andean villages, the Qoricocha lagoon (Golden Lagoon) attracting diverse fauna like ducks, trout, and, in the surroundings, llamas, alpacas, sheep, and more. We’ll also pass through Pampamarca, a viewpoint offering breathtaking landscapes of the entire Sacred Valley.

Continuing the uphill hike, we’ll reach León Punku, featuring unique rock formations. Finally, we’ll arrive at Huchuy Qosqo, where a delightful dinner and camping experience await.

 
 

Early in the morning, around 6.30 am, we will have breakfast and get ready to continue along the trail, ascending for approx. 4 hours with some stops for lunch and rest until we reach the Inca site of Huchuy Qosco, recently restored by archaeologists, located at 3,450 m. On the way there we pass through a small Canyon, which is a part of the Inca trail. From this point, we will have a clear view of many beautiful mountains such as Chicon, Pitusiray, Sawasiray, Waccaywilca and Veronica. Then, we start our walk down to Lamay, about 2 hours with stops. Here our transport awaits us to go back to Cusco for about 1 hour and 15 min.

 

After having breakfast at the hotel, we’ll head to the bus station to board the bus that will take us to the marvelous archaeological complex of Machu Picchu. There, we’ll explore each of its intricate structures with our guide, capturing plenty of photos before returning to the town for lunch.

In the afternoon, we’ll take the train to Ollantaytambo, followed by tourist transport to Cusco, making it a total journey of approximately 4 hours. (The arrival time in the city of Cusco will vary depending on the train tickets).
