The Waqrapukara Acomayo Cusco Full Day Tour was an extraordinary journey into the heart of ancient Inca culture and breathtaking natural beauty. Beginning with an early 4:00 AM pick-up from my hotel in Cusco, the day commenced with a scenic drive through the Sacred Valley to Cusipata village, where a delicious breakfast awaited.

After fueling up, our adventure continued with a visit to the picturesque Pomacanchi lagoon, setting the stage for the awe-inspiring Waqrapukara hike. As we ascended from Huayqui, our knowledgeable guide provided insights into the region’s history and pointed out well-preserved cave paintings along the way.
