Huchuy Qosqo Trek to Machu Picchu 3 Days

Huchuy Qosqo is an archaeological site of the Incas located at an altitude of 3,600 meters above sea level, Calca province, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. During this walk, we will be able to appreciate the signs of the Inca constructions; some Inca stairs and small doors with Inca decorations until reaching the Wonder of Huchuy Qosqo. Which is located on the mountains of the Sacred Valley of the Incas; Also, from this point you can appreciate the impressive panoramic view of the entire Cordillera del Vilcanota with its imposing snow-capped peaks.

If you are a person who doesn’t like crowds and enjoys to be surrounded by pure nature instead of a group, this is the hike for you. The groups tend to be very small or it may even just be you. You also rarely see others along the way. It’s perfect for some peace and quiet while walking.
