The walk to Huchuy Qosqo is another one-day tour in which you can enjoy not only the natural landscape of the place but also a path not so visited by tourists which makes it special. On the way you will travel part of the famous Qapac Ñan, or network of Inca roads, which will take you to Huchuy Qosqo which translates as little Cusco. Located at the top of a mountain in the Sacred Valley of the Incas with an imposing view of this beautiful Valley, it is approximately an eight-hour tour. Once in Huchuy Qosqo we will provide you with your lunch and then we will descend to the town of Lamay, where after this beautiful walk we will return to Cusco.

The tour will last approximately 8 hours, we will begin with a steep climb of more or less two hours to reach the highest point of the walk, the Tauca pass at 4200 MSNM. The highest pass in the area, a beautiful view of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the imposing snow-capped hills such as Pumahuanca and Chicon. We will rest to take some photos. Then the rest of the terrain of the day is flat or downhill, passing herds of llamas and alpacas. The walk goes through the rustic town of Pucamarca. You will arrive at a particularly picturesque place to enjoy a picnic lunch or a snack. Continuing, the outline of the high ridge takes you to the entrance doors of Huchuy Cusco and the incredible agricultural terrace. We will visit the place for a time of one hour and then we will descend towards the sacred valley of the Incas all the way down with some unique views,
Until we reach the town of Lamay. Here our driver will be waiting for us to bring us back to Cusco and return you to your hotel.

We were recommended this company by our neighbor. Ruben/Juan was great with questions and provided a lot of valuable information as I was planning parts on my own instead using a set tour, partially due to wanting to climb one of the optional peaks which you need to book months in advance. We then hit a snag with my wife’s passport and Ruben happily rearranged the tour for us even though we gave last minute notice.
Our tour guide Wagner met us where the bus dropped us of (can be arranged to pick up from your hotel as well), and we spent the next two hours learning a lot about the history of the site and he took us away from the crowds, and accommodated our photos requests. After we hung around and explored on our own until it was time to leave….
FANTASTIC!!! From start to finish! Amazing Andean Adventures was in charge for our entire 8 day trip to Peru. Every detail and pick up was perfect. Every driver and guide was great! Thank you Kivin and Joaquin for finding my camera!
There was one special guide that we will never forget. Dany met us at our hotel in Agnes Calientes and was very patient as our train was late arriving. His knowledge of the history and culture of the Incans made the tour of Machu Picchu come alive! We were fortunate to have Dany for two days, always upbeat, helpful, fun, and competent. The Cusco City Tour was also amazing with the continuing history making us feel like we were actually there in the time of the Inca rule. Magical…
We traveled to Cusco this December with a three day private tour planned with Danny. My mom had done a similar tour with Danny and recommended him/amazing andean adventures to us! Our three day adventure was pretty much perfect; danny was always early to meet us, super friendly, with great english and tons of knowledge to share about the ruins and inca historical sites we visited. He even made the rain clear up so we could get a perfect view of machu picchu after our hike. On day one we went from our hotel to various destinations in sacred valley, which I worked with the company to plan so that we would hit all the spots I wanted to. They were helpful and accommodating in building a highly individualized itinerary…
