Huchuy Qosqo is an archaeological site located 50 km north of the city of Cusco. It is located 3,600 meters above sea level, above the town of Lamay in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Huchuy Qosqo means “Little Cusco”.
It is known that Huchuy Qosqo was built on the orders of the Inca Wiracocha and probably it was one of his country palaces, far from Cusco but close to the Ollantaytambo and Pisaq precincts. Also in Huchuy Qosqo were signs of having been a temple dedicated to the deities of heaven.
Upon the arrival of the Spanish in Cusco, they took control of Huchuy Qosqo in the year 1500, and this enclosure was used as a farm. So local people were forced to build many water canals for irrigation. During the construction of the canals and the Spanish modifications, the Huchuy Qosqo palaces had to be destroyed.
Huchuy Qosqo is accessible on foot or on horseback. The two main walking paths are from Lamay: 3 hours, or from Tauca, about 6- 8 hours on foot.
The Huchuy Qosqo tour begins in Tauca (3762 meters above sea level), from where we will walk 6-8 hours, on the way we will pass through the Pujacasa pass (4393 meters above sea level) from here you have a spectacular view of the moutains. Then we will continue to Huchuy Qosqo along the old Inca trail (some sections are not in good condition). We will arrive at Huchuy Qosqo where we will have a delicious lunch and we will visit all the halls, channels and Inca precincts of the place.
Back in Cusco, we will descend through the zigzag path towards the Lamay town (2938 meters above sea level), then we will board the bus back to the city of Cusco.
