HUCHUY QOSQO 2D
This magnificent and strategic archaeological complex called Huchuy Qosco or “Little Cusco”. It was known in Inca times with the name of Caquia Xaquixahuana and according to chroniclers it was inhabited by the Inca Wiracocha until his death.
From Huchuy Qosco you have a spectacular view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the mountain range of Urubamba. This beautiful and short circuit is very close to the city of Cusco, giving us the option to see more of the andean landscapes, flora and fauna typical of the Area.
DAY 1 CUSCO – HUCHUY QOSQO – QUENQO – SIWA – LAMAY – OLLANTAYTAMBO – AGUAS CALIENTES
We will pick you up at 5:00 a.m. from your hotel to drive for 20 minutes to the place where we will have breakfast enjoying the view of the Sacred Valley. We will start our trek near Siwa (3750 masl/ 12300 ft). It will take two hours to reach the highest point, the Inka Yupanqui Pass (4050 masl/13300 ft). Along the way there are great views of snowcapped peaks, farmland, and probably we will have the chance to see falcons in their natural habitat. From the pass, it only takes 15 minutes downhill to reach the Puma Punko canyon (Puma Gate). Then, there are only ninety more minutes until we reach Huchuy Qosqo, consider as the Palace of Wiraccocha king. Here we will explore and have a tour, after this enjoy a picnic lunch at this site. Then, we will complete the last part of the trail, 1.5 hours downhill towards Lamay, where we will take a private transport to Ollantaytambo. Take the train to the town of Aguas Calientes where we will spend the night.
DAY 2 MACHUPICCHU – CUSCO
After a very early breakfast, we will take one of the first buses to Machupicchu to enjoy the sunrise. Once at Machupicchu you’ll get a two-hour walking tour with your tour guide with plenty extra time to explore on your own. One of the best extra hikes you can do, is Huayna Picchu mountain, only if you book a ticket in advance. Then we will take the bus back to the city for lunch and we board the train in the afternoon (it depends of the spaces availables). Finally, from Ollantaytambo train station we will transfer you back to your hotel in Cusco.
