Amazing route that starts in the mountains of Cuzco towards the archaeological site of Huchuy Qosqo and finishes in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

We will ride from the Sacred Valley or Cusco, to the community of Q´enko, where we start our hike. From there we will ascend for about 1.5 km until we reach the highest point of the day, where we will get amazing views of the cordillera Vilcanota and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The trail will then take us along creeks and agricultural terraces, facing the Vilcanota river and the Urubamba mountain range until we arrive at Pukamarca. In this ¨Red Village¨, we will meet the Inca Trail hidden by a narrow and biodiverse gully, with water channels, ancient stairs and bridges, as well as other archaeological remains in between a breathtaking nature. We will arrive at Huchuy Qosqo, an important tambo (strategic military and religious site) in the heights of the Sacred Valley. History tells that this was the refugee of the Inca Viracocha, defeated by the Chancas, who invade the city of Cusco, until his son Pachacutec beat them and recover Cusco for the Incas, After visiting the citadel and enjoy the views and landscape, we will descend to Lamay village to finish our trip and return to our hotel or our next destination. Gourmet and nutritive box-lunch on route.

The difficulty is about a 3/4, there is not much uphill but a lot of downhills, so that is why it is a little bit challenging.

I was born in Lima, I studied tourism and hotel management at San Martin de Porres University and I have been living in Cusco for 25 years. My motivation is to contribute to the conservation of nature and communities through responsible tourism and other activities coherent with the destination.
After so many years seeing how tourism has had a negative impact there is only one way to maintain our activity and that is to have an inclusive thinking and educate the traveler that the destination belongs to the people who inhabit it.
