Tour Itinerary

Explore our expertly designed itinerary below, crafted to showcase breathtaking views and provide unique adventures every step of the way.

Cusco – Perolniyoc Waterfall – Ñaupa Iglesia – Cusco

Rise with the sun and join us on a journey from Cusco to the serene Perolniyoc Waterfall, nestled deep within the Sacred Valley. As we depart, the drive itself offers a feast for the eyes, taking us along a scenic route where the Andes seem to whisper ancient tales.

Upon arrival at the trailhead, we’ll embark on an invigorating 30-minute hike. Our path is fringed with a rich tapestry of native flora, and the distant peaks stand as silent guardians of the valley’s deep-rooted traditions. It’s not just a walk; it’s a passage through time and nature.

The Perolniyoc Waterfall, a hidden gem of the valley, awaits at the trail’s end. Here, the water’s descent crafts an ethereal melody, and you’re invited to bask in the splendor of this natural wonder. Whether it’s the thrill of the spray on your skin or the awe-inspiring sight, the waterfall is a testament to the untouched beauty of the region.

From the waterfall, our quest continues with a 45-minute hike to the ancient Raqaypata archaeological site above. As you explore the remnants of Incan architecture and culture, our guide will bring to life the stories and significance of this sacred site.

Having traced the echoes of the past, we retrace our steps back down the trail, where a delectable Box Lunch awaits, offering a chance to refuel and reflect on the morning’s adventure. Our selection of refreshments provides a perfect complement to the meal and a moment of relaxation amidst the day’s activities.

The exploration is far from over, as we set out on a brief 20-minute stroll to Ñaupa Iglesia, an enigmatic site steeped in Incan astronomy and spirituality. Here, amid the vestiges of ancestral worship, you will feel the spiritual pulse of the Andes, connecting you to the cosmos as understood by ancient civilizations.

Our return to Cusco is a tranquil affair, leaving the Sacred Valley’s landscapes in the rearview as they give way to the evening light. Your anticipated arrival time at your hotel is around 4 pm, closing a chapter on a day rich with physical fulfillment, cultural immersion, and the sublime beauty of nature.
