Full Day :

We will start our walk from the Main Square of Cusco and we will walk about 2 kilometers to Sacsayhuamán is an archaeological group located north of the main square of the city of Cusco. To get to Sacsayhuamán on foot, we will walk through old streets of the City, we can do it going up Suecia Street, through Huaynapata and through Resbalosa, and then we will arrive at the church of San Cristóbal. Here, we will join the ancient Inca route to Sacsayhuamán. The climb is steep and takes approximately 45 minutes from the Plaza de Armas. Sacsayhuamán was built between the 14th and 15th centuries.

The work lasted more than five decades, being the work of 20,000 men who came together in the form of tribute (mita). All its structures were located without the need for them to cease to be part of the place where they stand, integrating deeply and harmoniously the then sacred category of the landscape, obtaining a colossal altar to nature. The complex itself has important architectural and natural parts, which have their own meanings and stories.

We will continue our walk for about 1 kilometer until we reach Q’enqo; it is located northeast of the city of Cusco along an asphalt road. This place of worship is located in what is now known as Cerro Socorro and has an area of ​​3,500 square meters. What remains of the archaeological complex of Q’enqo today are carved rocks that could not be destroyed by the Spanish, little remains of the paths and aqueducts, neither are the enclosures, the deposits or the liturgical baths. The ensembles that we describe were, without a doubt, very important sanctuaries for the Incas. Despite the destruction that this complex suffered during the colony, what can be seen today within it is still impressive and colossal.

We continue our journey around 3 kilometers we will arrive at some wonderful “and little known” Inca remains. One of them is the Temple of the Monkeys and the Temple of the Moon; on the way we will visit incredible natural landscapes through the beautiful mountains that surround the ancient capital of Tahuantinsuyo.

The Temple of the Monkeys “or Cusilluchayoc” in Quechua language is a large carved rock where you can see the ancient reliefs of snakes and monkeys that formerly gave the place its name. It is very interesting to walk around the temple trying to locate the various figures carved in the stones. A place of great archaeological value with galleries and corridors that communicate with each other. The walls housed niches and basins of water that are assumed to have been used for liturgical purposes. The figure of a big cat, probably a puma, can also be seen carved in the rock. This temple is still used to perform magical-religious rituals as evidenced by some offerings that can be found in the place.

Just 500 meters following the route of the Qapaq Ñan, is the Temple of the Moon “Quillarumiyoc” in Quechua language, a magical sanctuary where the Incas celebrated rituals in honor of the moon and consisting of three caves. Above the main cave, a small opening makes the room light up completely on the nights of the full moon closest to the winter solstice. The Temple of the Moon is known to many as a sanctuary for fertility. Although currently the entrance to the main cave is prohibited, at the top of the temple we can enjoy magnificent views of the natural environment that surrounds Cusco being able to feel a special peace away from the bustle of the city. On the rocks that are at the top, you can see sculpted shapes of llamas, condors, snakes, pumas and chakanas “the Andean cross”.

We continue our adventure and we will walk about 4 kilometers to Inkilltambo. This beautiful archaeological complex surrounded by nature was a ceremonial sanctuary built during the government of the Inca Wiracocha, according to data from the chroniclers of the colonial era. In it you can find carved rocks connected by narrow passageways, as well as rectangular enclosures, platforms, fountains, stairways and canals from pre-Hispanic times. A place where the dead were worshiped. Just two years ago, the Decentralized Directorate of Culture of Cusco (DCC) concluded the restoration works.

We will finish our excursion by walking for approximately one hour. Until returning to the city of Cusco. During the return we will be able to enjoy a wonderful view of the city from one of its highest points. Good opportunity to take pictures.

End of service.
