    INCA TERRA PERU carefully developed this full day tour in order to give you a unique experience, INCA TERRA PERU is proud this tour is not known by many tour operators. The tour leads to a very ancient temple of the Inkas, WAQRAPUKARA (the sacred fortress) because of the shape of the complex, it resembles the horns of a bull, although according to historians the real name would be LLaqta Pukara (the rocky fortress) the rock formations show many layers that represent millions of years of the evolution of our planet. This Archeological complex dates back to 15 centuries where an extensive agricultural section full of terraces surrounds the sacred site, in the central part where the highest point of the monument is, there are two huge natural monoliths, which is believed to be the ceremonial and astronomical site. The view of the landscape is an extra bonus from the summit, as clearly the valley is seen with extraordinary formations, at the bottom of the valley you see from the distance a tiny Apurimac River running its way to the Amazonian river.

    The departure time is 6:00 in the morning from the city of Cusco. The travel time by car takes approximately 3 and a half hours. During the trip you can enjoy the beautiful Andean landscapes & charming ancient villages. The walk takes 1 hour and a half to reach the archaeological site of Waqrapukara, along the trek the stunning landscape will surprise you with impressive natural and extreme rocky formations, most of them are super unusual.  After a short break to enjoy our lunch, we will visit, explore, learn and delight in the beauty of this unique monument that still remains nearly intact since Inkan times. Finally rewarded with such experience, we return to our vehicle that will wait for us, we will arrive to the city of Cusco around 6:00 pm in the afternoon.
