In Cusco there are endless places to visit, and yet there are many lesser known hidden gems that still need to be promoted. One of them is Waqrapukara, which means “The Horned Fortress” when translated into Spanish from Quechua. Possibly, it was a site of administrative and religious importance that was formerly populated by the Qanchis. So, are you ready to embark on this off-the-beaten trail with us and enjoy the wonderful landscapes, canyons, and amazing ancient constructions that this magnificent place boasts? If so, our Waqrapukara 1 Day Tour is perfect for you!

If you are interested in exploring more lesser known but equally breathtaking ruins in the Cusco area, check out our tour to Choquequirao. Or, take a look at our travel blog for more inspiration!

Itinerary

Firstly, at approximately 4:00 am, we will begin picking up our clients from their respective hotels. Then, we will head south of Cusco and arrive at a restaurant to have breakfast after approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Next, we will continue the trip for roughly another hour and a half to the community of Santa Lucia, from which we will continue driving for 15 more minutes until reaching a dead end, where finally we will begin a hike of approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes to the complex of Waqrapukara. On the way, we will have the opportunity to witness not only wonderful landscapes, but abundant flora and fauna as well. At last, we will arrive at the fortress and enjoy a delicious box lunch. Then immediately after, our guide will give you a thorough rundown of the fortress’ history and we will have free time to take pictures.

After a short rest, we will board our transport once more and return to Cusco via the same route.

Excellent - keep it going The more that is said about this team is definitely less. Jhon and I had been in touch for the last six months to draw this trip and since then to now when it is in conceptualisation it has been top notch professional with a touch of personal with them checking on my well-being etc. Abel came in once I arrived at Lima and since then has been my support. Guys this is a tour operator must to be considered. Infact I have met so many in Cusco who asked me of my trip details and I have no hesitations in recommending them. Bravo

Ótimo passeio! Fizemos o passeio para Machu Picchu e tudo foi incrível, nós buscaram no horário combinado no hotel, o carro e motorista eram ótimos. Eles cuidaram de reservar as passagens de trem e ônibus e os ingressos para vista à Machu Picchu e tudo saiu perfeito. O guia da vista também foi excelente, muito atencioso e solicitou, além de ótimo fotografo. Tudo foi impecável!

Merveilleux, foncez ! Que dire à part un grand merci. Nous avons contacté l’agence la veille, ils nous ont répondu directement en nous proposant des expéditions sur mesure selon nos envies et nos disponibilités (2 jours d’expéditions : 1. Vallées sacrés des incas et 2. Machu Picchu). Abel s’est rendu disponible pour nous expliquer tous les détails avant le départ et même pendant les expéditions. Nous avons passé deux jours incroyable, tout était planifié, nous n’avions plus qu’à visiter et s’émerveiller. Le tout pour un prix raisonnable ! Nous recommandons ! (Francais 22 & 26 ans)

Excelente experiência Desde o primeiro contato até o último passeio, a agência foi muito eficiente. Fomos atendidos pelo Abel, que foi sempre muito atencioso, correto e nos ajudou com todos os detalhes da nossa viagem, garantindo que tudo ocorresse perfeitamente. Os guias (Ed, Vilma, Monica, Giovanni) também foram excelentes. Recomendamos muito a agência Inca Peru Travel!
