    What to Expect
    Day 1: Cusco - Tambomachay - Qenko

    We will leaving Cusco city and head to the Inca site of Tambomachay. From this location will start our Huchuy Qosqo hike which it will pass through valleys, mountain lakes and small communities. We will indulge by the beauty of the nature, their variety of birds such as the Andean Geese, partridges and lapwings as well as a variety of birds of prey, all of which are regularly spotted throughout the day. 

    Our hike is taking us along a path that leads to the Tauca town in which nearby we will find archaeological vestiges, also wild crops, such as tarwi, and a large quantity of cactus.  Following our path on to the Pukamarca pass at 4, 200m, we will delight ourselves with the stunning views of the valley and magnificent mountains: Veronica, Pitusiray, Chicon and the San Juan snow peaks. Than we will descend towards the beautiful, remote Andean pueblo Pukamarca at 4,010m above sea level, and have a short break.  We will walk downhill to a mystical ancient path which will lead us to the Leon Punku Ravine a small and narrow corridor between rock walls.  Inca remains in place and sets of stairs (some of the best examples of Inca stairs anywhere in the world) will leave us astonished. This canyon is absolutely magical and boasts geological formations surrounded by majestic rocks and boulders that direct the river to Huchuy Qosqo at 3,600m.  We will get to the ruins and admire its formation on the mountains and we will settle no far from this archeological site to pass the night.
