Huchuy Qosqo Trek to Machu Picchu - 3 Days

The Huchuy Qosqo trek in 3 days will allow you to enjoy whimsical geological formations and a guided tour of the archaeological site of Huchuy Qosqo, and we will also have the opportunity to build our camp near the Archaeological complex.

We will travel along an original Inca trail, pass by lagoons, mountains, landscapes with an impressive panoramic view, and with some luck, we will also see the flight of the condors over the mountains.

We will visit an Inca cemetery, and we will be able to camp under the stars and enjoy the night peace of the Andes. On our third day, we will visit the citadel of Machu Picchu.

Departure & Return Location:

Hotel Cusco.

Departure Time:

Pick up from your hotel (6:00 am – 6:30 am).


Day 1: Cusco - Tambomachay - Huchuy Qosqo.

We will pick you up from your hotel in Cusco at 6:00 am to move on our transport to Tambomachay, located about 11km north of the city. This is the starting point of our adventure with a slight ascent; we will pass through Qoricocha (golden lagoon) and the Yanacocha lagoon (black lagoon) with a large concentration of wild birds. We will see an archaeological group of three Pre – Inca Chullpas, funerary constructions used to house Inca funerary bales upon reaching the highest point. After this, we will take a well-deserved rest to enjoy our lunch.

As we resume our trek to descend along with the spectacular and capricious geological formation on the route to the archaeological complex of Huchuy Qosqo, through what was once part of the Inca Trail Network that connected the entire empire and you will witness the wildness of the Andean geography.

We will arrive at Huchuy Qosqo at approximately 3:30 pm Huchuy Qosqo is 11,800 feet high, on a large natural terrace elevated in the upper third of the peak above the town of Lamay. It has a magnificent view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the snowy mountains located at the other point. Here we will prepare the camp to spend the night under the stars of the southern Andean hemisphere.

Upon arrival, we will also have a guided tour. Huchuyqosqo (small Cusco) received its name in the twentieth century; although it does not resemble Cusco, it was previously known as Kajya Qhawana (the place where lightning falls).

Tonight we will have dinner at the camp.

Day 2: Huchuy Qosqo - Lamay - Aguas Calientes.

We will have a nutritious breakfast at 7:00 am in our Huchuy Qosqo camp; we will pack all the equipment and take pictures of the place with the sunrise.

You will have free time to explore on your own the terraces, temples, Huchuy Qosqo channels. The architecture is peculiar in that the buildings were built on stone bases finely polished, with clay plaster in the best-preserved parts, but the upper floors are made of adobe (mud bricks).

We will observe the stone channel that provides the water that runs through the place. At approximately 10:00 am, we will begin the descent towards the Sacred Valley, arriving at the small Andean town of Lamay (3000m); our descent will last approximately 2 hours.

In the town of Lamay, our transport will be waiting for us to take us to the Ollantaytambo train station, and then take our train to the town of Aguas Calientes to spend the night in a hotel.
Dinner included.

Day 3: Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco.

During the morning, at the agreed time with the guide, we will walk for one hour to Machu Picchu. Once we arrive, we will have to follow our guide, who will take us on a tour of Machu Picchu for two hours. Then you will have free time to explore on your own Machu Picchu to take fantastic photos that will give you much to talk about among your friends.

After the excursion, we will return to Aguas Calientes, where you can have lunch. In the afternoon, we will return to Ollantaytambo by train, where we will board the private transport that will take us back to the city of Cusco.
