1 Day Tour Waqrapukara

Waqrapukara 1 Day Trek is a new and recently promoted tourist attraction in Cusco located in the province of Acomayo near the Apurimac River at 4, 140masl. (13,583ft.), south of the city of Cusco. Waqrapukara was a multifunctional place of our ancestors considered as a fortress, a sanctuary or an astronomical observatory. It was initially built by the Quinchas and then conquered by the Incas. This tour will take you to a different and unusual destination, where you will enjoy the spectacular landscapes, different lagoons, the amazing Apurimac Canyon, and also connect with nature and the energy of this magical place.
