This complex is the most important archaeological site in the Valley of Urubamba, after Ollantaytambo and Pisac. The ancient Incan site is impressive, although the conservation of the site is less than Ollantaytambo and Pisac, because Huchuy Qosoqo is older.
Huchuy Qosqo trek is the combination of breathtaking Inca sites, local villages, astonishing snow-capped mountains, axotic vegetation and extraordinary ecological places. The trail goes off the beaten track, over high passes of the Andes Range and through the Sacred Valley of the Incas with unforgettable views of this great scenery. Ending in one of the new seven wonders of the world Machupicchu.

From here, we will begin trekking up the road as it curves sharply up-hill to reach a pass of near 4200 meters. We will continue to follow the trail down into the valley and towards the small community at the bottom. As we descend along the trail, you will see a beautifully green valley stretching out as far as the eye can see. Passing through the village, the trail takes us up over the second pass (4300 meters) and into high open country. On the way, we will pass by the beautiful Lake Qoricocha (Golden Lake in Quechua). We’ll continue along this rustic trail, with its stellar views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
