Q’eswachaka is the last remaining Inca bridge in Peru. Handwoven from grass and spanning 118 feet over a steep canyon, this incredible feat of engineering is truly unmissable!
Q’eswachaka Inca Rope Bridge Tour
At 5 am, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and set off on the route south, stopping at a local restaurant after two hours for a delicious breakfast.
Next, the tour makes a stop at the Pampamarca, Asnacqocha, Acopía and Pomacanchi lagoons, before continuing our route, heading towards the Pabellones volcano, very close to the picturesque village of Yanaoca.
We'll then continue onwards to the Q'ewe district where you'll reach your destination for the day: the famous Q'eswachaka Inca Bridge. The bridge, which is made from handwoven grass rope, spans 118 feet across the Apurimac Canyon and was part of the complex Inca road system that connected the different cities of the historic empire.
It is unique in that it is the last remaining bridge that remains from this era, and its importance has been recognised by the local communities who reconstruct it every June according to ancient tradition. This also means that despite its age, it is perfectly safe to cross!
Leaving Q'eswachaka behind, we'll make one last stop to enjoy a buffet lunch, before returning to your hotel in Cusco for around 5 pm.
The minimum age to take part in this activity is 12 years old.
