Our guide will share with you the history of the Pisac Inca site. Breakfast is served high above, looking down at the plunging gorges and awesome views of the Inca city and valleys. Driving toward 40 minutes to Huaran, we meet our team who will stay with us on this trek. Time to saddle up, boots on, and begin our first 3 hours gradually ascending to Cancha cancha, replenishing our energy for our trek ahead with a delicious lunch prepared by our trekking chef. Cancha cancha being the most isolated and self-sustainable community, traditional to the core, with no bus route or electricity. Make your connection with nature and the realness of life with the locals that share their homes.
