How about a trek that helps you familiarize yourself with Peruvian birds and ancient Andean communities with a trip to the Huchuy Qosqo thrown in? All you need to do is to register for the Huchuy Qosqo Trek. This unique trek takes you through beautiful meadows, lakes, mountain communities and historical sites. Let us take a look at what the trek has to offer.
You will begin at the Inca site of Tambomachay, which is located just outside Cusco. You will then walk past meadows and passes that lead to beautiful grasslands and lakes. This area is famous for the wide variety of birds of prey. Don’t worry, for they are not going to harm you and they are only interested in smaller mammals. You will also visit Qenko, which is an Andean community that still maintains ancient culture and customs. You can bring gifts to them in exchange for experiencing their lives.
The second day will help you learn more about Andean communities and their histories. You will interact with Andean communities and learn about their lives, while they learn about you as well. The next part of the journey is to arrive at the Huchuy Qosqo. The path to Huchuy Qosqo is incredibly beautiful and you will encounter wild flowers, grasslands and unique fauna. This is a great place to find some inner peace and calm. After completing the visit to the Sacred valley, you will take a train to Aguas Calientes.
The next day, you will take the bus to Machu Picchu where you will learn more about the Incas. This guided tour will help you to understand how the Incas came to be, and how they lost their vast and powerful empire when the Spanish invaded South America. You will have a lot of free time in the afternoon and you can choose between exploring Machu Picchu further or go to Huayna Picchu. Finally, you will take a train back to Ollantaytambo.
