Huchuy Qosqo trek is the combination of stunning Inca archeological site, isolated rural indigenous villages, magnificent snow-capped mountains, exotic vegetation of types and varieties. The trail “goes off the beaten track,” over high Andean passes, through the Sacred Valley of the Incas with its unforgettable scenic views, and visits “the Green House of the Incas,” MORAY and the Maras Salt Mines which absolutely no one else does it.  It ends at one of the 7 wonders of the world: Machu Picchu.

It is believed that the archeological site of Huchuy Qosqo was built during the reign of the eighth Inca Ruler, Viracocha.  Inca rulers acquired large royal estates to increase their power and wealth and that of their descendants who inherited the estates.  Royal estates served also as elegant country palaces and, at times, fortresses to fend off rivals for power.   Thus, the name Huchuy Qosqo, “Little Cusco”, was for a royal estate or government center modeled on the Inca capital.

After you, have had time to explore everything, we head downhill to Lamay for 2 hours. Our private van will take you to Urubamba to have our lunch. We head to the archaeological site of MORAY also known as “The Greenhouses of the Incas,” which is a unique and fascinating site, built prior to the Incas. Different levels of terraces are carved into a huge bowl, part of which was further excavated by the Incas. The terraces have varied microclimates, depending on how deep into the bowl they were used by the Incas to discover the optimal growing conditions for their crops. After you, have time to enjoy and explore the site, we continue driving towards the colonial town of Maras and Salt Mines (Salineras). Thousands of saltpans have been used for salt extraction since before Inca times. A hot spring at the top of the valley discharges a small stream of heavily salt laden water, which is diverted into saltpans and evaporated to produce a salt that is used now for both human and animal consumption. It is quite beautiful the array of saltpans carved around the area. Then, we continue our journey to Ollantaytambo where we will explore the stunning astronomical Inca City of Ollantaytambo.
