HOW IS THE JOURNEY FROM HUCHUY QOSQO TO MACHU PICCHU?

This 3-day journey starts in Cusco. On the first day, you will begin the hike to the first campsite, traversing through various altitude levels and part of the Inca Trail until the Quenko community.

On the second day, you’ll hike just a little to explore the Huchuy Qosqo archaeological site. Afterward, you’ll descend to the town of Lamay, where you’ll take our transportation to the Inca town of Ollantaytambo. In the evening, you’ll board a train to Aguas Calientes.

WHAT IS THE BEST SEASON TO HIKE THE HUCHUY QOSQO TREK TO MACHU PICCHU?

The best season to undertake this journey is between April and October. During this period, you can enjoy all landscapes, sunny and serene days, guaranteeing a more pleasant experience. However, nights can be colder, so it’s essential to dress properly.

HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO HIKE HUCHUY QOSQO?

The Huchuy Qosqo trek is a short hike of moderate difficulty. Although the route is not as demanding as the Inca Trail or Salkantay trek, it’s crucial to have good physical preparation to make the most of this journey. Your physical readiness significantly influences the quality of your experience during the trip.

HOW CAN I AVOID ALTITUDE SICKNESS DURING THE HUCHUY QOSQO HIKE?

Altitude sickness, also known as “Soroche,” is common for people arriving in Cusco, so it’s essential to acclimatize for two or three days before undertaking the Huchuy Qosqo hike. We recommend engaging in small activities, exploring places that require less physical exertion, and drinking coca tea, which is a great ally.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO THE HUCHUY QOSQO HIKE INDEPENDENTLY?

Yes, it’s possible to hike this route independently, and many travelers do so. Although this route is marked, it’s crucial to have experience in solo hiking.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK THIS HIKE?

We recommend booking your trip 2 or 3 months in advance to book the Machu Picchu entrance tickets, as they tend to sell out very quickly.

When making your travel reservation, don’t forget to mention your interest in visiting Huayna Picchu. It’s essential to remember that exploring this site incurs an additional cost, as you’ll need to purchase an extra ticket priced at USD 85.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE THE START DATE AFTER BOOKING?

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change it once you’ve made your reservation. As tour operators, when you make your reservation, purchase the Machu Picchu entrance tickets as soon as possible, which do not allow date modifications. If you wish to change your travel date, you’ll need to purchase new tickets at an additional cost.
