PROGRAM

CUSCO - TILCA & CHOQUECHURCO – CUSCO

We will depart Pincopata Ecocamp pass by Marcoccasa (the starting point to our long hike to Soraypampa) and continue our drive along a path through forests passing local farms and the incredible landscape of the Apurimac Valley. We will arrive at our starting point for our hike to Tilca, an important sacred Huaca located in Mollepata. Our trek to the summit of the Apu Tilca will take about 1.5 hours. During this gradual climb we will encounter Inca culture remains and at the summit, steps leading to ceremonial platforms. At the top, we will be able to appreciate views of the great snowy Salkantay mountain as well as Humantay, Camas, and Abuela among several other peaks in the Vilcabamba mountain range. We will also be rewarded with outstanding views of the Apurimac River canyon. After some time enjoying and exploring this impressive landscape we will descend and continue our journey to the archaeological remains of Choquechurco (Place where Gold is placed). This sacred place, unknown to many, is on our list of remote sites we like to visit. Situated among a forest of native Polylepis trees, this abandoned site will make you feel like a true explorer. We will discover remains of religious sites and settlements; carved boulders, small squares, and Inca walls covered with moss and vegetation.

From this place, we will have views of Humantay Mountain, the Valley of Limatambo, Apurimac, and the town of Mollepata. Surrounded by remarkable scenery, we will stop to have lunch at this site before continuing the descent to our Pincopata Ecocamp.
