SCHEDULE

Huchuy Qosqo Trek Day 1: Cusco - Tambomachay - Qenko

Starting from the Inca site of Tambomachay just outside of Cusco our path leads us over high passes, through valleys and small communities and past beautiful mountain lakes. With large swathes of grassland and large open lakes the area is home to a wide variety of birds including Andean Geese, Partridges and Lapwings as well as a variety of birds or prey, all of which are regularly spotted throughout the day.

Our goal for today is the village of Qenko located close to Lake Qoricocha (Golden Water). Qenko is a traditional Andean community; located high above Cusco and the Sacred Valley the people here still maintain the customs and traditions of ages past and the majority of villagers gain their income from herding llamas and alpacas. As only a few tourists come this way the people are always intrigued to see who has come to visit their village and to welcome them with open arms.

Huchuy Qosqo Trek Day 2: Qenko - Huchuy Qosco - Lamay - Aguas Calientes

Today has two main focuses, learning about the customs and culture of the Andean people and a visit to the Inca site of Huchuy Qosco. Waking up early we'll be taken by our guide to one of the houses where we'll get to meet a local family. The people are incredibly welcoming and are just as eager to learn about you as you are of them; they don't get many visitors in this area and are always interested to find out about you. After the visit you'll have the opportunity to give any gifts you've brought for the local people and also to buy some of the locally made
Following the visit we'll make our way to Huchuy Qosco. The route follows an original Inca Trail that leads us down a beautiful, secluded valley that is filled with native plants, flowers and birds. It really feels like another world compared to the high grasslands we've left behind. In total it takes about two and a half hours to reach Huchuy Qosco and after a break to rest and take in the views of the Sacred Valley you'll have a guided tour of the site to learn about the Inca people and their culture. In the afternoon we head down in to the Sacred Valley to the village of Lamay where we take a bus to Ollantaytambo and then a train to Aguas Calientes.
