Day 1

Our first day starts at the foot of the Pumahuanca valley, one of the most attractive ravines in the Sacred Valley which leads up to the snow-capped mountains of the Andes. This area is always lush and it provides an excellent eco-system for birds and native vegetation. At the highest point of the trail, we will stop to visit the small archeological site of “Inca Racaqniyoc”, which was once the home of Inca settlers. We will then continue hiking until we get to our first campsite at Quyoc.

Dia 2

We will spend the morning hiking along the Cicllaqqasa Pass, where we will pass beautiful natural wonders such as the Yanacocha lagoon. By mid-day we will arrive at the community of Quncany, where a picnic lunch awaits us. After lunch, we will continue hiking along the Lares Valley to reach some beautiful hot springs. We will spend the night in Lares. The next morning, after breakfast, our private transportation will take you back to your accommodation in Cusco or the Sacred Valley.
