Overview

Full Day Waqrapukara Tour – Group Service

Waqrapukara Tour – Waqrapukara Cusco: It will take you to one of the buildings in the Andes mountain range in Cusco. Certainly, this fortress is built on top of one of the steepest mountains in this sector of the Andes. Likewise, the Waqrapukara trekking experience will also immerse you in an incredible area of landscapes that seem lost in time, where travelers do not usually go. This great trek takes you out of the traditional walks in Cusco.

The archeological center in Waqrapukara is a mixture of pre-Inca and Inca construction. Therefore, it was built by the Kanchi ethnic group and in the time of the Incas probably built in the Inca government period Wayna Khapaq considered as a fortress, sanctuary, astronomical observatory. So, it is located 4300 msnm, in the abyss of the Apurimac River Canyon, south of the city of Cusco.
