Over two days, enter into the heart of the Andes. Travel along ancient Inca trails and discover stories about the great Inca Empire by exploring Huchuy Qosqo, the old palace of the Inca Wiracocha, built in the fifteenth century and today considered a National Cultural Heritage site.
The hike starts at Piuray, a beautiful lake located in the pampas of the Cuper Alto Community, a place of great natural beauty.
You will ascend through a wide valley to the Qoricocha Lagoon and explore the quarry from which the Incas extracted the stones to build the Huchuy Qosqo complex.
Enjoy being immersed in the vastness of the Andes as you enter a magical gorge with a different microclimate where you will recognize a change in the surrounding vegetation.
Walk along a very well-preserved Inca trail until finally arriving at Huchuy Qosqo. It is located on a natural esplanade, with a spectacular view of the Sacred Valley and the snow-capped Pitusiray, considered a mountain god by the Incas.
