The Waqra Pukara trek is one of the new alternatives of a full day hike in Cusco, ideal for people who love walking and adventurous, it is also considered a good alternative of a training for people who have not yet done the Inca Trail or Salkantay Trek. Waqra Pukara could have been the fortress, sanctuary, astronomical observatory ?. These are the interpretations for this enigmatic monument of classical Inca architecture that stands at 4, 300 meters above sea level. In the abysses of the Apurímac River canyon south of the City of Cusco.
