    TOUR DESCRIPTION

    One day trek to Huchuy Qosqo

    Huchuy Qosqo, the Little Cusco, is an archeological site north of Cuzco, Peru; it was initially an administrative and military center around Pisaq, with many thought-provoking constructions in the surrounding vicinity. You may also observe Inca buildings with delicate, perfect stonework & grain-storage structures called Collcas to store and preserve food because it was an important agricultural center to produce cor.

    Discover this fantastic hike with the best and direct Tour Operators based in Cusco.
    The Huchuy Qosqo Trek takes you to the lovely trek to the lesser-known Inca site of Huchuy Qosqo. This site is situated on a plateau with stunning views overlooking the Sacred Valley and the Vilcabamba range’s snow-capped peaks.
    This hike offers a great combination of beauty and contrasts in scenery, wildlife, and ancient cultures. It takes you through beautiful highland forests and meadows covered with fresh straw where the herds of Llamas and Alpacas walk freely through it.

    TOUR ITINERARY

    DAY 01Explore this hike to Huchuy Qosqo

    Places we will arrive
    Cusco
    Ccorao
    Patabamba Community
    Qoricocha Lake
    Huchuy Qosqo
    Cusco Hotel

    We’ll stop by your hotel to pick you at 7:00 am; the day starts by driving to the small town of Corao, around 30 minutes from Cusco, before branching off the road into the high Andes and the tiny village of Patabamba at 3848 MASL/12624 FASL. We will then continue for another 15 minutes to Qoricocha lake, the starting point of our trek.

    We’ll ascend 45 minutes to the Apacheta pass, which is the highest point of our trek (4,200 masl / 13,779 fasl). From here, what remains for us on the day is downhill. For 2 hours, we’ll cross Pukamarca ancient community, fertile valleys, and a grand Puma Puncu canyon (“the puma door”). From here, you will hike along an original Incan trail, which has been restored as part of the Qapacñan project. This trail will lead you to the isolated and mysterious Inca site of Huchuy Qosqo (“the little Cusco”) perched above the Sacred Valley of the Incas at 3600 MASL/11811 FASL. Once in the place, your guide will walk you through and show you all the site’s impressive Inca buildings like sacred temples, storehouses, Inca terraces for agriculture, and the Inca reservoir used to store water during the dry season.

    After your guided tour of the site, we will begin our 2-hour walk downhill to Lamay’s village (2,800 meters) by the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley; here will be waiting for us, our Andean chef, to serve you a delicious buffet lunch. After lunch and a short rest, we will take our private car to transfer you to the Cusco hotel.

    Information Before leaving for the Huchuy Qosqo Trek

    We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as easy as possible. In this section, you will find speedy answers to all those questions you had about Huchuy Qosqo Trek in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.

    Has another question that we haven’t answered here? Drop us a line, and we will get back to you asap!

    Briefing or informative meeting

    All information meetings are held in your hotel at 6:00 p.m., one night before the tour begins. If you cannot attend, you must coordinate another time at the (Peru Hike) offices. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes and there you will be given a small duffel bag, in which you’ll put all the belongings you intend to bring on the trek that won’t be in your day pack.

    Payment of Trek Balance (in Cusco)

    The trek has to be paid for in full by at least 7.30 pm two days before departure. For example, if your tour departs on a Wednesday, then you must come to our office before 7.30 pm on Monday.

    It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can pay by credit card or PAYPAL online, but you will have to pay an 8% service charge, charged by VISA and PAYPAL. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

    Storing your luggage at our Office.

    Of course! During the travel, your main luggage can be stored at our office(you can organize briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.

    Any equipment that you are not going to need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags, put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (In the unlikely case of theft many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing all the items). Best put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

    Pickups:

    Peru Hike Company can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historic Center of Cusco. The pickup time will be coordinated with your guide in the briefing. The pickup time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic. Cusco is a very old city, therefore, it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

    Group tours:

    Group tours are made up of different types of people. Physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route. It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, it will be the guide who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if said modifications can be made.

    Strikes and demonstrations:

    Strikes and demonstrations are usually frequent in Peru and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your excursion as planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, all situations will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority and our decisions will be made to protect it.

    Lost objects:

    You’re responsible for your objects during the tour. Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our trucks, tents, or restaurants.
