1st day / Cusco - Quillarumiyoc - Tarawasi - Maucachaca - Cconoc
Travelers are picked up at their hotels and we start from Cusco at 7:00 am, by private bus. Leaving Cusco we pass through the “pampa” of Anta, where we will be able to observe ample cultivation fields and the prosperous cattle activity of the locals.
Our first stop will be the archaeological center of Quillarumiyoc, quechua voice meaning stone of the moon. It was an Inca ceremonial center dedicated to the moon and water.
We continue the trip arriving at the Abra Huillque, from where we will have a phenomenal view of the snowy Salcantay (20551 feet), main “Apu” of the South Andes of Peru.
Our next goal will be Tarawasi, an important "tambo" (hence the name of the Limatambo village) on the Inca route to Chinchaysuyo.
On route to Curahuasi we will have lunch in a restaurant and then the mobility will take us to walk on the Capaq Ñan, until the Maucachaca bridge site and then to the thermal site of Cconoc. There are pools of thermal water, some rooms and a small restaurant; reeds, huarango trees, cacti and carob trees are part of the vegetation that surrounds the center. Dinner and overnight
2nd day / Cconoc - Viewpoints of Curahuasi - Saywite - Cusco
After breakfast, we head to Curahuasi, where we take a small road that leads us to San Cristobal mountain and the esplanade of Captain Rumi.
Captain Rumi (Rumi in Quechua means stone) is a huge monolith that sits on the edge of the deep canyon of the Apurimac River.
From there, we will walk until the upper viewpoint of San Cristóbal, that dominates the abyss of the great canyon of Apurímac; we can see, by far, a part of the famous inca sanctuary of Choquequirao.
Returning to Curahuasi village, we will have lunch and then continue by bus until the archaeological site of Saywite, a ceremonial inca center dedicated to the water.
After the visit, we board the bus to reach Cusco, where we will arrive approximately at 19,00
