Follow in the footsteps of the Incas hiking through the ruins of Huhuy Qosqo on this two-day trek from Cusco. An unforgettable adventure!
Huchuy Qosqo Trek: 2 Days from Cusco
Day 1: Cusco – Tambomachay – Pucamarca
After picking you up from your hotel in Cusco, we'll travel by minibus to Tambomachay, an Inca archaeological site located only 30 minutes' drive away. After exploring the historic ruins, we'll begin our first trekking route.
During our trek, we'll climb to more than 4000 metres in altitude to get the best possible views of the breathtakingly beautiful natural landscapes. Admire the mystic Lake Queullococha and the impressive mountain range formed by the peaks of Pitusiray, Chicon and San Juan. After having lunch around halfway through the route, our day will come to an end in Pucamarca. Here, we'll set up camp before enjoying dinner and resting ready for the next day's adventure.
Day 2: Pucamarca – Huchuy Qosqo – Taucca – Cusco
Full of energy after a hearty breakfast at our camp in Pucamarca, we'll set off bright and early for our second trekking route. Crossing winding ravines and trails, we'll reach the archaeological site of Huchuy Qosqo, which means Little Cuzco in Quechua. We'll explore this historic site and learn all about the hostile relations between the Incas and the invading Spanish who tried to take control of the settlement.
After visiting Huchuy Qosqo, we'll descend to Taucca, where a well-earned lunch awaits us. Then, having eaten, we'll board the minibus for the return journey to Cusco after two incredible days trekking around the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
