Ruta del Sol from Puno to Cusco

It's said that at least once in your life you have to do the famous Ruta del Sol through the south of Peru. They say that everyone who makes this journey ends up being captivated by the history, landscapes and gastronomy of the Andes. To check whether this statement is true or not we'll meet at 6:20 am at the Puno Bus Station. From this terminal, we'll head to the town of Pukara, located only one hour away.

What is the legacy of the ancient Andean people? We'll discover it by visiting the Pukara Lithic Museum. Monoliths and other unique stone sculptures make up the museum's exhibition, this visit will allow us to better understand the history of this area of Peru. Then we'll also see its church, a beautiful building in baroque style. From Pukara we'll continue towards La Raya pass, where we'll stop to take pictures of this breathtaking mountain pass located at more than 4300 meters above sea level.

Once we have taken the necessary photos in La Raya, we'll go to a restaurant in the town of Sicuani to recharge our batteries with a buffet lunch. After lunch we'll go to the famous archaeological site of Raqchi. Here we'll see the remains of the ancient temple of the God Wiracocha, a deity whose veneration in pre-Hispanic times is surrounded with numerous enigmas, legends and mysteries.

After the guided tour through the archaeological park of Raqchi, we'll go to the village of Andahuaylillas, where we'll visit the church of San Pedro Apóstol: the "Sistine Chapel of America". Does this statement seem exaggerated to you? Wait until you see the interior of this majestic temple!

We'll finish the Ruta del Sol in Cusco. We'll arrive at this legendary Peruvian city at 5 pm, at the city's bus station.
