    What to Expect
    Pick up from your hotel at 7:30am, transfer to Chinchero and then to the trail head at Tauca, a small Andean community. You will start hiking uphill surrounded by beautiful mountains, with the presence of llamas, alpacas, and lovely views of Lake Piuray until you reach the only mountain pass at 4500m/14760ft. You will then descend along a restored Inca Trail for approximately one hour towards the small Andean community of Pukamarca (4010m/13153ft). From there, you will walk downhill towards the Leon Punku ravine, where you will find the remains of an Inca bridge and trail. This canyon boasts geological formations surrounded by massive stones and boulders that direct the river to Huchuy Qosqo at 3600m/11808ft. You will arrive there by early afternoon.

    Huchuy Qosqo is an Inca archaeological complex with impressive architecture plus a large open ceremonial center; from here you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Sacred Valley, the Vilcanota River, and the snowcapped mountain range of the same name. While in the complex, you will receive a guided tour and afterwards continue to Lamay at 3000m/9840ft. Lamay is a town dedicated to agriculture and cattle raising. Later in the afternoon, you will be transferred to your hotel in Cusco. Full Day Trek (duration: 6-7 hours)
