Day 1 – Cusco / Tinqui to Upis

Pick up from the Hotel at 06:00 am; we depart from Cusco to Tinqui (3815m/12513ft) in our private transportation and travel about 3 hours to reach the small Andean village of Tinqui at the foot of the Vilcanota range.

Our trek begins around 10:00am crossing the bridge we walk a pampa of grassy meadows below the jagged stone flanks of Ausangate Mountain (6350m/20828ft), the highest snow peak in Southern Peru.

Meals Included: Box-lunch, Dinner


Day 2 – Upis / Arapa Pass to Pucacocha Lagoon

Breakfast; on the next day, we hike around 2 hours to get our first pass, Arapa Pass (4750m/ 15580ft). To be in the pass we will have to walk up the valley along the right slope before climbing a rock-strewn area. A hut and a few corrals form the last settlement we will come across before you climb toward the mountain. Throughout all the passage we will see the majestic Ausangate Mountain. Finally we arrive to the Arapa Pass; from the pass we enjoy wonderful views not only of Ausangate itself. Follow the fence line and cross the ridge by walking to the left of the steep hill between it and Nevado Ausangate. We continue down we have the opportunity to see beautiful lakes, multi-colored lagoons until we reach the larger Yanacocha lake (black lake) where we have our lunch, after the lunch one hour more to the camping site near the Pucacocha Lagoon (4500m/14760ft), We will set up camp here.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 3 – Pucacocha / Palomani Pass to Pampacancha

In the morning, we make a short ascent to our second pass of Apacheta, (4850m/15908ft) then down until Ausangatecocha lagoon below where we will have our lunch. After the lunch climb for two hours towards the third mountain pass, the Abra de Palomani (5200m/17056ft). This is the highest part of the entire hike, from which we then descend for another 2 hours through an area of llamas, alpacas and “vizcachas” to reach Pampacancha. We can enjoy fantastic views of Ausangate and the Vilcanota range from this point. Then we walk down into a valley, we arrive to our incredibly beautiful campsite at Pampacancha (4050m/13284ft)
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 4 – Pampacancha / Qampa Pass to Qomercocha

After breakfast; we climb gently up the Qampa side valley, criss-crossing a stream, and passing ancient rock falls where Andean vizcachas large rabbit-like rodents leap among the boulders. On this less-populous southern side of the mountain our chances of seeing wildlife are heightened. Condors skim along the slopes, and elusive herds of rare vicuñas may appear on the ridge tops, while keeping a safe distance. Beyond the tiny hamlet of Qampa we traverse a huge, grassy shoulder of Ausangate with the icy crags of Collque Cruz (Silver Cross) and Tres Picos (Three Peaks) to our right, as we ascend to Qampa pass (5000m/16400ft), our fourth and final crossing. The high point is marked by tall cairns (apachetas) built by generations of foot travellers making the north-south traverse of the Vilcanota range. We descend with the broad, rolling plains of the upper Mapacho basin spread out far below us, reaching our camp at the cluster of lakes known Qomercocha, as evening draws near.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 5 – Qomercocha to Pacchanta

Breakfast; we leave this spectacular camp reluctantly, with many a glance back. These lonely lakes, some deep and crystal clear, others shallow and bubbling with exotic algae, lie beneath sharp, towering peaks. Powerful yet peaceful, it is easy to understand how this became a place of ceremony for the Quechua shamans of the Region. We follow a series of rolling ridges across open grassland, encountering child shepherds and women hand-spinning wool as we approach the village of Pacchanta (4100m/13448ft), the biggest settlement on our trek. Here delightful hot springs offer us a sublime soak, with the entire panorama of snow-capped Ausangate filling the southern horizon.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 6 – Pacchanta to Tinqui

Breakfast; we leave Pacchanta and start to walk our way back to Tinqui, which will take approximately 2 hours. Once in Tinqui, we board a private transportation that will take us back to the city of Cusco, where we estimate to arrive after nightfall.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

RAQCHI 1 DAY

RAQCHI 1 DAY tours adventure peru travel trek raqchi hike journey private tour guide best excursion trip inca trail private tours reservation trail booking trekking expediton cusco reservation

DEPARTURES: Every Day.

PERIOD: All year.

SUMMARY:

The architectural complex of RAQCHI is one of the most important buildings of the Inca Empire, characterized by its strange and extraordinary architectural technique, totally different from the other buildings of the Incas. However, very little known for domestic and foreign tourists.

ITINERARY:

It is located in a place very close to the Community of Raqchi, located in the district of San Pedro, Province of Canchis, the department of Cusco. Is on the right bank of the Vilcanota River, a distance of 118 kilometers southeast of the city of Cusco. Its altitude is 3.480 meters above sea level.

For the traveler it is easy to get to this amazing place, as using the road from Cusco to Puno (about 3 hours) where there is a deviation of only a mile, there is a sign that allows the exactly location.

Most of its territory is occupied by a large amount of lava turned into rocks, caused by the eruption of Kinsachata and the rest of its territory was used for agriculture.

This is a small town with about 80 homes, whose residents lead a precarious life producing pottery and farming for their family consumption, there is a Folk Festival celebrated every year performing every third Sunday in June, where presentation made numerous dances from different places, with their typical clothes.

According to recent research, the aforementioned archaeological park has an area of about one thousand acres, because out of the massive Inca wall that protects the park, there are also some buildings such as aqueducts, underground tombs and enclosures pre-Inca culture.

The complex was built in different periods. One sector was built during the reign of Viracocha Inca, reported by the chronicler Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. Later another stage was built between 1439 and 1471, during the reign of Pachacutec, and finally the third stage was built, according to Cieza de Leon, the Inca Tupac Yupanqui, between 1471 and 1493.

Among its functions, highlight the religious, since it has a sanctuary or place of pilgrimage to worship Viracocha, who was regarded as the supreme god, creator of the sun, a moon, stars, animals, plants and humans. Administratively, Raqchi is strategically located on the border of two large regions, the Quechua and the Aymara (Cusco and Collao).

It was a storage center of food from different places, existing in complex, large textiles and ceramics workshops.

On the military side, the existence of the house of the chasquis and the massive Inca wall that protects the archaeological site mentioned, suggests that it was used both as a center of Inca messages and for the imperial army training.

We recommend you visit this impressive citadel, inherited from our ancestors, unlike many other archaeological sites, was built on a foundation of stone, with stone walls and mud that inexplicably is not much visited by the little publicity it receives.
