Day 01: Cusco – Chincheros – Huchuy Qosqo – Lamay – Cusco

Early morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and drive out of the city to Chinchero. In Chinchero we will visit the church, a typical market, and an archeological site, before continuing our journey to Tauqaq, a village located on the edge of Piuray Lagoon, where the group will begin the trek.

After a short briefing about the route, we will walk for 3 hours to Tauqaq Pass (4,000 meters), where we will see the snowy peaks of Ausangate, Veronica, Pitusiray and Sahuasiray in the mountain range to the south. We´ll then descend to Huchuy Qosqo, an imposing architectural complex that includes a large open ceremonial center.

From here we can enjoy a panoramic view of the Sacred Valley, the Vilcanota River, and the snowcapped mountain range of the same name.
After a guided tour, we will continue on our way to Lamay at 3000 meters elevation. From here we will take a private bus to Cusco, where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
