    We will leave the car and descend a steep path to a viewpoint for taking photos, before carefully crossing the bridge together! Get ready for the adrenaline rush of a lifetime as you make your way across the swaying bridge, and try not to look too closely at the river several meters below! On the other side, the bridge attendant will greet us and give a brief demonstration of the bridge’s history and construction.

    After visiting the bridge, we will drive to the region’s where the four famous lakes are: Pampamarca, Asnacqoccha, Acopia, and Pomacanchi. Set like jewels among the gold-green hills, they shine in the warm, afternoon sun as native flamingos and other birds fly and feed around their edges. will stop in one of the lakeshores to set our picnic blanket and enjoyed our lunch

    Finally, you will be taken to explore Rumi Punku before you return to Cusco at about 4:30 am to 5:00 pm
