Do you have free days in Cusco and feel like you’ve seen it all? Visit the impressive Inca archaeological complex of Waqrapukara, surrounded by stunning views over the Apurimac Canyon. This enigmatic fortress is located on top of a steep mountain and features eight Inca terraces with retaining walls and stone stairways.
The hike to Waqrapukara is a new and alternative day trip in the Cusco area. and is ideal for those who love to hike and are looking for adventure. We recommend doing this tour if you would like to practice for the Inca trail or Salkantay trek.
Getting there involves a 3½-hour drive from Cusco to the town of Santa Lucia, and then a 2-hour trek.
