Qosqo 2D / 1N
Cusco - Huch'uy Qosqo
After the picking up
at 9:00 am we go from Cusco by bus to Patabamba, where we do a
stop for packing our stuff. Then we`ll walk uphill towards the
archaeological site of Qhapac Cancha. This site is perfect for
watching almost the 80% of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Then
we will descend to the town of Siwa, the place where we`ll stop
for a while to observe the roof technique of straw in this
picturesque town that remind us the ancient Inca buildings,
which makes of the town a welcoming place for a brief rest.
After the lunch, we get along passing by the Mirador of
Wayllanqaray towards the archaeological site of Huchuy Qosqo,
where we`ll set up the camp. After a good rest our guide will
explain us about this interesting place. All this beautiful
place is protected by the snow capped mountain of Sawasiray and
Pitusiray, spectacular Apus of the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
