Day 1 – Cusco - Palcoyo - Cusipata
We will start early in the morning, picking up each of you from your accommodations in Cusco. After about 3 hours on the road, we will reach the Palcoyo Rainbow Mountain, the starting point of our hike.
We will begin by admiring the unique and colorful landscapes of the area and then embark on a beautiful hike, mostly downhill, to the village of Ananiso. Once in Ananiso, we will take a long break for lunch.
In the afternoon, we will explore the Ananiso Canyon, located just a few minutes from the village. With millions of years of history, this canyon offers a spectacular environment and also houses ancient rock paintings that the most adventurous can discover by crossing a small part of the river with their feet in the water.
Our transportation will be waiting to take us to the small village of Cusipata where we will spend the night.
Day 2 – Cusipata - Waqrapukara - Cusco
Today, we are heading to the village of Sangara. Along the way, our driver will drop us off at the starting point of our hike.
Access to the Waqra Pukara archaeological complex can be done through various paths. Depending on your physical fitness level and the day’s conditions, your guide will choose the most suitable route. The average hiking time is about 5 hours. This adventure presents a physical challenge, but the scenery and the spectacle you will witness upon arrival are truly worth it. With your guide, you will discover the significance of this forgotten site within the local heritage.
Once our visits are finished, we will reach our driver and return to Cusco.
