Huchuy Qosqo to Machupicchu – 3D/2N

The 3 day/2 night Huchuy Qosco trek is a really enjoyable and not too challenging option that combines spectacular mountain views, the original Inca trails, a community visit and a guided visit to the little known Inca site of Huchuy Qosco which is located in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. By getting off the beaten path, you get away from all the crowds of the more well-known treks, but still get to enjoy all the amazing things Peru has to offer. The Huchuy Qosco trek is perfect for those on a short time frame or looking for an easier hiking route.

Day 01

Cusco - Tambomachay - Qenqo

Pick up from the hotel at 05:00 am, we will begin our hike in Tambomachay, just outside of Cusco, our path takes us through high passes, valleys and small communities. With large expanses of grasslands and small lakes (dry in some seasons), the area is home to a wide variety of birds, including Andean geese, partridges and lapwings, as well as a variety of birds or prey, all of which are regularly seen throughout the country.

Our target for today are the Andean villages of Patabamba and Siwas located near a small lake (it dries up in some seasons). Patabamba is a traditional Andean community with a small school and a small plaza; located high above the Sacred Valley, the people here still maintain the customs and traditions of times past and most villagers earn their income from farming and herding llamas and alpacas. As only a few tourists come here, the people are always intrigued to see who has come to visit their village and welcome them with open arms.

Day 02

Qenqo - Huchuy Qosco - Lamay - Aguas Calientes

Today has two main focuses, learning about the customs and culture of the Andean people and a visit to the Inca site of Huchuy Qosqo. Waking up early, our guide will take us to one of the houses where we will meet a local family. The people are incredibly welcoming and as eager to learn about you as you are about them, they don’t get many visitors to this area and are always interested in meeting you.

After the visit we will head to Huchuy Qosqo. The route follows an original Inca Trail that leads us through a beautiful isolated valley that is full of native plants, flowers and birds. It really feels like another world compared to the high grasslands we have left behind. In total, it takes approx. 2.5 hours to reach Huchuy Qosqo and after a rest and enjoy the views of the Sacred Valley, you will have a guided tour of the site to learn about the Inca people and their culture. In the afternoon we drive into the Sacred Valley to the village of Lamay where we take a bus to Ollantaytambo and then a train to Aguas Calientes.

Day 03

Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco

Upon waking up early, we will take the first bus back to Machu Picchu to enter the site when it opens. We will have a 2-hour guided tour of the site during which you will learn about the Incas and visit all the most important areas of the citadel. After your tour, you will have free time to explore the site yourself and if you have permits to climb Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain. In the afternoon, you will take the train back to Ollantaytambo from where you will continue by bus back to Cusco.
