Day 1 – Archeological Sites, Cusco – Pincopata Ecocamp:
Your adventure starts with an 8:30 am pick up to take you to Killarumiyoq. The lunar cycle was charted here and fertility rites honoring Mother Earth were performed during the height of the Inca civilization. Following this visit, we continue along the road for an hour to the community of Marcahuaylla, from where we start a short walk to access the archaeological remains of Choquechurco (Place where Gold is placed). This important 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 find remains of religious nature, carved boulders, small squares, and Inca walls covered with moss and vegetation.
From this place, we can see the Humantay Mountain as well as the Valleys of Limatambo, Apurimac and the town of Mollepata. We will stop to have lunch at this sacred site, surrounded by remarkable scenery, before continuing the descent to our Pincopata Ecocamp.
On arrival at Pincopata Ecocamp, we will be greeted with a lovely refreshment made from seasonal fruits and taken to our respective domes to enjoy a hot shower and a deserved rest. If rest is not your thing, you may prefer to walk around the camp or participate in the various extra activities available at the Ecocamp, such as horse-riding and biking. We will end the day with a superb dinner consisting of fresh and locally sourced foods typical of Peruvian-cuisine.

After a hearty breakfast to fuel our early start, we will set off for our two hours of hiking to the Humantay Lake, as our goal is to be the first to reach the beautiful spot.
We will enter the glacial lake through a special entrance away from the crowds. This unforgettable moment will be framed by the glistening glacier ahead of us and with the ethereal turquoise lake at its base. We shall stop to enjoy the impressive sight and to have a morning snack. We will then descend to the lake to touch its gleaming waters and take some incredible photos before we return to our camp in Soray where we’ll enjoy a delicious lunch, after which we will board our transport to head back to Cusco.
