Itinerary

Full DayCusco to Waqrapukara

Today you’ll rise early and have a morning drive from your centric hotel in Cusco to the start of our journey towards Pitumarca. After a casual breakfast, we will continue driving for 30 more minutes crossing an unpaved path that leads to the beautiful Qenterococha lagoon. Here our adventure begins as it is the starting point of our hike to Waqrapukara. The first part of the hike is walking through a flat and curvy road for about two hours.

En route, you will witness the stunning Andean landscape and precious lagoons until we reach the first lookout. From there we will start our descent for about 30 minutes and finally get to Waqrapukara archaeological site, while approaching this beautiful place we will be able to see the Apurimac Canyon and its deepness and peculiar stone formations. When walking this amazing site your expert guide will give you more headlights on this ceremonial place for about an hour to discover all about its fascinating architecture and secrets. On the way back we will return taking a different path and be able to see paintings on caves, massive geological formations, and amazing flora and fauna. The estimated arrival time to Cusco is at 19:00 pm approx.
