Route: Cusco – Urubamba (Perolniyoc Waterfall) – Cusco

To begin this day tour, you will visit the Ñaupa church that was a special “huaca” (sacred rock). It was likely used as a place of worship of Inca mummies, and some suggest it was a portal to other realms in the universe. After that,  you will continue to the rural community of Socma where the Perolniyoc Waterfall is. It has a height of approximately 80 meters. The water pool that forms below is shallow, so you can cool off in its crystal clear waters, if you are feeling brave! You will also be able to appreciate the lush vegetation and nature on the hike to the waterfall. After the waterfall, we will return to the city of Cusco.
