Huchuy Qosqo trek
We tailor made all our programs!
The Huchuy Qosqo trek is a journey of 2 days and 1-night that takes us to a remote archaeological site. Its name comes from a Quechua word which means small Qosqo. Qosqo was the Inca name and known from colonial times as Cusco.
During this alternative trek, we will observe the unmistakable Andean landscapes, its geography, the way of living of the Andean man, their traditions, culture, and identity. An unforgettable experience where we will feel that cultural immersion by being part of a community and sharing their costumes.
