Visit the unique Q’eswachaka bridge, the last remaining Inca rope bridge and marvel at the architectural majesty of the Incan handwoven bridge. You will visit the bridge and be able to walk along it, taking you back to Inca times. It is made of woven grass and is 120 feet long and hangs 60 feet above the canyon’s rushing river. TIt is created during a traditional Incan ceremonial bridge building and is rebuilt every one to two years as a communal effort by all the local people of the region. You will also visit stunning lagoons and local indigenous communities.

The next stop will be the famous Inca rope brigde Q’eswachaka. The most amazing thing about this bridge is that is rebuilt every one or two years as communal effort by all the local people of the region, using the same techniques and materials as the Incas. Once we get to the bridge, we will have time to walk across it and explore the surrounding area whilst the tour guide shares interesting detail about its history.
After visiting the bridge, we will drive for about an hour until we to the Lagoons of Pampamarca, Asnacqocha, Acopía and Pomacanchi where we will stop to have a picnic for lunch and you can enjoy a lunch with a view across the beautiful lagoon.

GARETH – QESWACHAKA INCA BRIDGE REVIEW
“We saw this bridge on a National Geographic documentary and really wanted to visit it after. It certainly lived up to expectations. It was a long drive from Cuzco but we were picked up on time and the journey was comfortable. Our guide was particularly good and very knowledgeable. We were surprised that there were so few people there. The food at lunch was a nice surprise too! Would definitely recommend, particularly this private option as we went at our pace and liked the peace. Into Peru were great”
