Highlights

Full Day Cachicata Trail Trek

The Cachicata Trek – Cachicata Trail Trek Cusco resides in an area of the Sacred Valley in the district of Ollantaytambo. Also known as the “living Inca city.” Certainly, this beautiful walk visits some of the lesser-known places outside of busy Ollantaytambo. Starting with the outer-laying terraces of the main construction that is the entire village itself. Then, to reach the quarry, we will first cross the Urubamba River on the Inca bridge. Likewise, we’ll observe how ancient foundations still serve to this day for a modern structure to be laid across.

Meanwhile, following the river, we will ascend to the first natural spring, with its terraces and Inka “swimming” pools, which are used for irrigation. After about an hour, we will start to see “tired stones” or stones that never made it to their final destination. After that, we will enter the main area of the quarry – Cachicata trek, where stones are extracted for the construction of the temples at the Ollantaytambo archaeological site. Similarly, the views here of Ollantaytambo and the Sacred Valley beyond are phenomenal.

From here, it is possible to appreciate some vantage points, such as the pyramid of Paqariqtampu and the imposing snow-capped mountains.

WE OFFER DAILY DEPARTURES!

Itinerary

Impresive Cachicata Trek – Ollantaytambo

Firstly, we will start the day picking you up from your hotel. As a result, in approximately 1 hour and a half, we’ll reach the city of Ollantaytambo. Where we begin our walk. Subsequently, the trail will take us upwards approximately 4 to 5 hours round trip, depending on the pace of walking.

As we ascend during the full day Cachicata trek, the panoramas of the Sacred Valley and massive mountains beyond open up into an amazing birds-eye view. So, we will observe the paths where the stones were moved and the many blocks that remained unfinished. Likewise, we will also observe the “Chullpas,” or small tomb constructions that were built for housing mummies. Certainly, considered to be guardian spirits for the people living and working in the area.

In addition, at about midday, we will rest and enjoy our packed lunch of Cachicata trek tour. After taking in the views and as many photographs as possible, we will begin the descent to Ollantaytambo. Consequently, our transport will be waiting for us to take us back to the imperial city of Cusco, or to lodge in Ollantaytambo if you prefer.
