WAQRAPUKARA TOUR

Forced by circumstances - competition, mass tourism - Cusco operators point to the south, whose quality destinations are only visible. However, years ago, visionary agencies such as Pukupuku Travel (Facebook Pukupuku Travel) explored that territory and positioned new routes long before the Sacred Valley overcame. http://bit.ly/amerikatoursperu

Needless to say, we did not enjoy the cosmopolitan Cusco night, because at 4 in the morning he picked us up from the Ricardo Reátegui Hotel (T. 959136848), one of the top guides in the region. It was cold in Huayqui, the starting point, but as soon as we started beating for a majestic puna we went into heat. We do not cross any tourist, only shepherds taking care of their flocks, and this route is more for travelers in search of spirituality drowned in commercial tours.
Suddenly, an amazing hollow interrupts the altiplanic plain. With astonishment, the archaeologist Miguel Cornejo tells him, who investigated the place in 2010: “Before entering Waqrapukara, you reach a space formed by river and wind erosion. The whole natural environment warns that a special place, out of the ordinary, of incomparable beauty is being reached ”.
The abyss that forms the Apurimac River is the cherry of the cake and makes Waqrapukara (4,104 m.a.s.l.) one of the most spectacular landscapes in the Andes. Inca architects molded their buildings to geography. "It is a first-class Inca sanctuary, which denotes immense political and religious power not yet deciphered," adds Cornejo.

DAY 3: CHOQUEQUIRAO RUINS – CHOQUEQUIRAO PASS – MAIZAL
After our early breakfast we will visit the mysterious Inca site of Choquequirao, where our professional Tour Guide will explain about the history of this magnificent Inca site. Originally discovered in the 17th century by the Spanish, it lay abandoned and forgotten until recent years when tourism raised the profile of the city and exploration began. Even with this increased interest only 25% of the city has been explored and many of its secrets still wait to be discovered. Actually we can visit the most important zones such as the main plaza, the inca houses, the granaries, the ceremonial sector and its altars, the famous terraces, and the great Llama sector where Incas represented this sacred animal on their buildings. After our guiding visit, you have extra time to explore and enjoy the place by yourselves, after this, we continue with our trail, we will begin walking uphill until the highest point for this day called Choquequirao pass located at 3,300 masl. or 10,890 ft., then we will descend until to the deepest point of the small canyon known as White River or Río Blanco (1900m/6234f), On the way we will pass by Pinchiunuyoj, a small archaeological site.

Today after a very good breakfast we will start a superb day’s hike on a path surrounded by vegetation and flowers climbing by 3 ½ hours along the way you will see evidence of mines that at one time were exploited, but are no longer used. As we continue and ascend, the weather will become a little colder and we will find the remains of an Inca trail. This trail will take us toward the pass called San Juan Pass (4200m/13,780ft). From this beautiful place you can see a great landscape with a grand chain of mountains such us Sacsarayoc, Pumasillo and Choquetecarpo, from which some of the latter peak more than 5000m/16404 feet.

After lunch, during the afternoon, we will enjoy frequently the view of snowcapped mountains such as Salkantay (6264 m.) and Pintuyu (5450 m.) and we continue going down for another 2 hours to colpapampa (2750 m.) which is where we’ll be camping for the night; when we arrive you’ll notice a change – now that we’re nearly to Machu Picchu the communities are larger and more well supplied, there are also more tourists whom came from the route of the Salkantay trek and they converge at this point.
DAY 6: COLPAPAMPA – PLAYA SAHUAYACU

ALTERNATIVE ROUTE TO MACHU PICCHU

Abra Malaga - Mountain Bike Adventure



Enjoy a half-day mountain bike tour on Abra Malaga in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This trip is a stunner. During the 5,000 feet of all-downhill biking, you will likely see herds of llamas, the massive glacier of Veronica, waterfalls, and authentic Andean lifestyles of simple stone huts and potato farms. This is the continental divide of South America, since, from here going eastward it drops nearly 20,000 feet down to the Amazon jungle basin, and the views here are outstanding. This section of highway has been described by many as one of the most beautiful in South America. By far one of the most popular mountain bike trips in the area, and with very good reason – it is over 5,000 feet of pure descent on a beautifully paved road.
Your tour starts in Ollantaytambo from where you'll drive one hour up the road to the pass of Abra Malaga, which lies at nearly 14,500 above sea level and at the foot of the massive glacier of Veronica (17,500 feet). From there, you begin a 50 kilometer descent that is one of the longest possible in the world, through gorgeous terrain. This ride is all downhill on a smooth paved road, and is truly suitable for anyone who can ride a bicycle. We have done this trip for nearly ten years and have successfully completed it hundreds of times.This ride fun. Everyone who does it loves it, due to the culture and scenery. It is a great mountain bike ride, perfect for those who love mountain biking. For those with extensive off road experience, there is a international DH course just meters away from the main road (extra cost and logistics are involved, ask for details).

LARES TREK



The Lares Trek is an off-the-beaten trail that begins near the town of Lares, 40 miles north of Cusco and 35 miles south east of Machu Picchu (see map below). The trek itself lies in the Lares Valley, east of the Urubamba mountain range, which traverses part of the Sacred Valley.
The trek can be completed as a standalone 2 or 3 day trail, or be incorporated with a visit to Machu Picchu - extending the tour by 1 or 2 days. The latter option is fast becoming a popular itinerary for trekkers due to the limits of the Classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Permits are not required for the Lares Trek. This means that you will arrive in Cusco and depending on the season (not June-August).
Of course you will need to book your train tickets to Aguas Calientes as early as possible during peak season, as well as your entrance tickets to Machu Picchu.
In terms of the current route itinerary, there are in fact a number of variations on the Lares Trek, most end at Ollantaytambo.
From here trekkers can catch a train to Aguas Calientes to visit Machu Picchu or indeed return to Cusco. We discuss each Lares Trek route variation in some detail below.
There are a number of factors that make this trek to great alternative to the Classic Inca Trail.
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly for some, that is a lot quieter than than Inca Trail.
Secondly, the route is arguably easier than the Inca Trail in that one does not need to deal with as many steps.
Altitude is still an issue and on some route you will need to deal with 3 high altitude passes that are over 4,200 meters (the highest, depending on your route is either 4,400 meters or 4,600 meters).

CHINCHERO FULL INFORMATION

SACRED VALLEY TOUR 



Chinchero known as the city of Arco Iris is located 28 km. to the northwest of the city of Cusco, on the 3160 msnm., flanked by the snowed ones of Salkantay, Verónica and Soray. The view from here is impressive. Chinchero belongs to the province of Urubamba, department of Cusco
Chinchero, the most typical population of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, is a distinctly Inca city that the conquistadores wanted to "civilize" to implant their culture, but never fully achieved it. Its inhabitants inhabit almost intact Inca buildings, in the same place where their distant ancestors lived and formed the largest and most prosperous civilization in America.
In the Archeological Site of Chinchero, its platforms are initially called, which allows us to understand that it was a center of agricultural production in the Inca period, a warehouse was also built and the whole complex was equipped with a very efficient irrigation system. The story goes that with the arrival of the Spaniards, Chinchero was burned down in 1536 by Manco Inca, in his flight to Vilcabamba, with the aim of leaving nothing to the Spaniards.
On the Palace of Tupac Yupanqui the Spaniards raised the Church of Our Lady of Montserrat in 1607, with the purpose of representing their submission in a symbolic way. Its main altar carved in gold leaf and baroque style is dedicated to the Virgin of the Nativity. Its walls are decorated with works by Diego Quispe Tito, the highest representative of the Cuzco school. There are also works by Francisco Chihuantito.
In Chinchero the past persists stubbornly, as if the spirit of a millenarian culture clung to this place, refusing to disappear. The native settlers, dressed in colorful traditional costumes, come down from their communities on Sundays and gather in the main square to exchange their products. Seeing all this group of people with deep cultural roots, oblivious to any sign of modernity, is a spectacle.
In the busy and colorful Sunday fair of chinchero you can find objects for domestic use, some truly old like the famous chinchero textiles. In this town, with united communities, it has been possible to preserve a living, immaterial heritage of extraordinary value, which is expressed both in textiles and in agricultural practices and in a network of family and community relations. In the workshops of the associations of artisans the whole process of the fabric is exposed daily, from the washing of the wool, to the final product, you learn from the techniques of spinning, dyeing and weaving.
From Chinchero you can access the beautiful Laguna de Huaypo and the town of Piuray. Chinchero is also recognized as a town of talented textile artisans.

MORAY AND MARAS TOUR FULL INFORMATION

MARAS AND MORAY TOUR
Moray is Quechua word and names a territorial sector occupied since time immemorial by the peasant communities of Mullak'as and Misminay.


The archaeological group of Moray was recognized by the expedition Shirppe Johnson's in the year 1932, while flying over the area. The circular units of Moray are formed by platforms in the manner of concentric rings. Each circle includes a terrace that overlaps another, forming circles that expand. You can access from one to another by climbing outgoing stones, stuck in the wall.
According to the historian Edward Ranney, the Incas used the terraces of Moray that are isolated from the large settlements, as a place for special agriculture, perhaps for the development of their most precious crop: the coca leaf.
John Earls, for his part, claims to have discovered vertical stones on the terraces, the same ones that would mark the limits of the shadows of dusk during the equinoxes and solstices. The local people call these stones "ñustas". Earls concludes that each terrace in Moray reproduces the climatic conditions of different ecological zones of the Inca empire.
Due to its sheltered position, each of these platforms represents approximately one thousand meters of altitude under normal farming conditions. In its entirety, the complex would contain twenty or more miniature ecological zones. The site of Moray could also serve the Inca officers to calculate the annual production in different parts of the immense Tahuantinsuyo.
Even, it is known that the Incas produced in the terraces of Moray sixty percent of vegetable species, three thousand varieties of potatoes, corn, and many other species. In addition, it was an important center for the domestication, acclimatization and hybridization of wild species, which were adapted for human consumption.
Moray lends itself to many scientific controversies due to the fact that no serious investigations have been continued in this regard. The structures found here are typically Inca; although, some authors suggest that these are recent. One of the enigmas is the way how the water from the drain that flows through the aqueducts is worked; it is said that there must be underground channels built to allow water to flow. It is also said that being on top of a very porous natural stone formation enables the filtration of water, into the interior of the earth.
Between the months of September and October, hundreds of residents of the neighboring communities attend Moray's circular platforms to celebrate the Moray Raymi or Fiesta del Sol. The festivities include folkloric dances related to the land, products and agricultural work.
Observations
At 38 Kms northwest of Cusco and 7 Kms southwest of Maras, is the town of Moray. It is possible to arrive by car through the road that leaves the town.
