|Huchuy Qosqo Trek|
A fantastic three and 2-day trek start in the surroundings of Cusco, departing from Tambomachay, located just 10 minutes from Cusco, leading to Huchuy Qosqo, an ancient Inca archaeological site perched on a cliff over the Sacred Valley of the Incas, crossing mountain passes, Andean communities and offering a large array of local flora & fauna. An excellent and less-beaten hike that can be complemented with a visit to Machu Picchu.
Huchuy Qosqo is located north of Cusco, Peru. Its name in Quechua means "Little Cusco". It lies at an elevation of 3,600 meters (11,800ft). The site received its name in the 20th century; previously it had been known as Kakya Qhawani. Pedro de Cieza de León in his "Second Chronicles of Peru" claimed that the palaces were built by Viracocha, the Eighth Inca. Amongst a large number of Inca buildings, you have many reasons to make this trip real.
