HUCHUY QOSQO TREK CUSCO – OVERVIEW

Huchuy Qosqo Trek Cusco is an excellent option for trekkers with too little time to go for a longer trek, yet avid to hike on an Inca path first hand. The varied landscape and incredible views make this challenging trek an exciting experience.

Huchuy Qosqo means “Little Cusco,” located in the north of Cusco, facing the imposing Vilcanota Mountain range in the Sacred Valley at 3600m/11800ft. It was initially called Kakya Qawani, built during the reign of Viracocha. It comprises a ceremonial open center, the Kallanka (Great Wall) 40m long, grain storage structures, and a long lasting Inca-built irrigation channel, lined with stones for about 800m, that provides water to the site. An important agricultural and administrative center along with Pisac during the Inca period.

Huchuy Qosqo can only be reached by foot or horse riding.  The access from Tauca is 3 hours long, more or less, up to a mountain pass of 4500m, and then you hike your way down through a rocky and dusty path to Huchuy Qosqo. Horseback ride or two-day hike to Huchuy Qosqo is available at request.
