Huchuy Qosqo means “small Cusco.” And it was the name given to this impressive archaeological site. The ruins, the city of palaces and temples were built by the Inca Viracocha einghth, who conquered the area by defeating the ethnic groups that settled there. One of the most important archaeological sites in the Sacred Valley of the Incas is located in a small plain. The views from the site are magnificent, with the Urubamba River far below meandering through fertile fields and Pitusiray opposite massif, surrounded by other snowy mountains grim.

We then cross a second pass at 4300m before descending to our lunch spot beside Lake Queullacocha. We cross two more passes in the afternoon before descending to the traditional community of Pucamarca with its stone houses and thatched roofs. We will camp here for the night.
We quickly pick up the Inca pathway, which runs through a narrow ravine before traversing the hillside and arriving at the citadel of Huchuy Qosqo. Perched high above the valley this impressive Inca site has a variety of architecture with buildings in both stone and mud brick.
