HUCHUY QOSQO TREKKING 3D / 2N

huchuyqosqo trekHuchuy Qosqo is an archaeological site located at 3650 m.a.s.l. (11800 fasl). Huchuy Qosqo (wich means Small Cusco) is an interesting set of ruins that are believed to have been abandoned by the time the Spanish arrived in Peru.It was built during the government of Wiracocha who choose it as his residence for militar and political reasons. The settlement comprised two floor buildings, houses for the workers and soldiers, terraces and two big squares. Its estrategical location at the top of Vilcabamba mountains, surrounded by the Apus Sahuasiray and Pitusiray shows the importance of this Inca site.

 

Even though it would appear to be in a populated area, you soon discover the true wildness of the Andes. This is a fantastic hike to gain appreciation of the isolated lives that the Andean people live. Furthermore, this trail is recommended to those who want a soft trek in the Andes with easy trails and less hours walking, but enjoying just as magnific places as the Inca Trail to Machupicchu.
