Itinerary

Day 1: Chinchero (Valley of Cuper) – Pucamarca – Huchuy Qosqo

We begin our journey by departing Cusco, by car, in the direction of the Inca Site known as Chinchero (3760 meters). From here, we will begin trekking up the road as it curves sharply up-hill to reach a pass of near 4200 meters. We will continue to follow the trail down into the valley and towards the small community at the bottom.

As we descend along the trail, you will see a beautifully green valley stretching out as far as the eye can see. Passing through the village, the trail takes us up over the second pass (4300 meters) and into high open country.

On the way, we will pass by the beautiful Lake Qoricocha (Golden Lake in Quechua). We will continue along this rustic trail, with its stellar views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Finally, we will descend towards the Huchuy Qoso (3650 meters), where we will arrive in the late afternoon. Here, we will set up camp and enjoy our supper underneath the great starry sky.

Hiking time: 6 hours

Lunch and dinner included
