HUCHUYCOSCO HIKE

HUCHUYCOSCO HIKE

Amazing route that starts in the mountains of Cuzco towards the archaeological site of Huchuycosco and finishes in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will ride from Lamay or Cusco, all the way to Qoricocha lake were we start our hike. From there we will ascend for about 3 km until we reach the Qoriccasa pass, were we will get amazing views of the cordillera Vilcanota and the city of Cusco. The trail will then take us downhill along an inca trail hidden by a narrow and biodiverse gully, with water channels, ancient stairs and bridges, as well as other arqueological remains in between a breathtaking nature. After walking across the village of Pucamarca (red place) the valley opens and we will get a wide panorama of the Sacred Valley and the Cordillera Urubamba, before arriving to Huchuycosco, an important tambo (strategic military and religious site) in the heights of the Sacred Valley. After visiting the citadel and enjoy the views and landscape, we will descend to Lamay village to finish our trip and return to our hotel or our next destination.
