Huchuy Qosqo trek 3 days
Our Huchuy Qosqo trek to Machu Picchu follows the original Inca trail that connects Cusco with the sacred valley of the Incas and this tour combines stunning landscapes, Inca sites, amazing view of the snowcapped mountains, and a spectacular view of the Sacred Valley—all of this in just a two-day hike. Most importantly, this Huchuy Qosqo trek is peaceful, not crowded. Our tour ends at one of the most exotic locations in Machu Picchu!
Is a town located at 3,550 M.A.S.L. on a small plateau at the top of the mountain. From where you have beautiful views of the other side of the valley, it is possible to appreciate snow-capped mountains of exuberant beauty such as the snow-capped Pitusiray and at the bottom of this privileged view, the town of Lamay.
