This was amazing! You have to be on shape to do this. We started walking at 8am and finished at 5pm. The guide is very important. We had a great one. If you decide to do this, don´t forget to bring the appropriate gear, plenty of water and a raincoat. There is so much to explore in Cuzco.

We did the hike beginning in Taucca near Chincero and ending on the other side of the pass past the Huchuy Qosqo site. The peak elevation is 13,950 feet, and we climbed 3000 feet going up and came down 4000 feet. We live at about 50 feet above sea level so this was a serious cardio workout. The payoff is... More

We went on this trek with Incaland Adventures. We had a guide with us for the trek which began in Tauca and ended in Lamay. The trek is about 14 klms. The ruins are wonderful, set on a plateau surrounded by beautiful mountains and valleys. The altitude reaches about 4200 metres at the top of the pass. The downhill part... More

We walked up from Lamay, it took us about 2 and a half hours, it was quite steep, and I would recommend going early in the morning as the path does not have much shade and gets hot! The Huchuy Qosco site itself is beautiful, amazing views! And then we walked down a different way - the road to Calca... More
