About
Get off the beaten track in Peru’s Sacred Valley thanks to this 1-day guided trek to the Huchuy Qosqo ruins. Avoid the crowds as you enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Sacred Valley and a visit to a lesser-known Inca archaeological site, reaching heights as high as 13,400 feet (4,100 meters) on this rigorous trip. A box lunch and site entrance fees are also included.

What to expect
  • Get an early start on the day with pickup at your hotel in Lima between 5:30am and 6am, then begin the hour-long drive to the community of Lago Piuray (exact departure time depends on your location). Your hike begins at an altitude of 11,800 feet (3,600 mt.), kicking off with a three-hour, uphill climb to the Piuray Passage, a spectacular alpine pass that looks out across the Urubamba mountains and a landscape dotted with small lagoons. From Piuray Passage, the trail descends for two hours on the way to the Huchuy Qosqo ruins. Upon arrival at the archeological site, whose Quechua name means “Little Cusco,” start exploring the ruins with your guide. You’ll see the remains of an ancient irrigation channel, stone and adobe structures, and a sprawling great hall that’s 131-feet (40-meters) long. Following the tour, refuel for an afternoon of hiking with a boxed lunch. The final section of trail is a steep descent, about two hours, into the Sacred Valley town of Lamay, where you’ll meet the vehicle for the return trip to Cusco. This trip concludes with drop-off at your hotel between 5pm and 6pm.

Did Chinchero > Piuray passage > Huchuy Qosqo ruins > Lamay on 7 Apr. Special thanks to Lorenzo who helped me carry my day pack when climbing this ~4000m mountains. Without him and his encouragement I don't think I could have completed this 16km Inca trek, especially the downhill part.
Strongly recommended this day tour.
