Peru - Vilcabamba Trek
ITINERARY

This incredible trek to the last outpost of the Incas is an unforgettable experience. For forty years this region of cloud forest was a refuge and natural fortress for the Inca's resistance in the sixteenth century, keeping Tahuantinsuyo safe from the Spanish invasion. The trek is strenuous but it is really the inaccessibility what makes this trek hard. Another unique feature of this trek over other treks around Cuzco is that it is mainly through rainforest and cloud-forest terrain so there are no concerns regarding high altitude. Horses are available to assist in the trek.

Day 1: Cuzco - Chaullay - Wankakalli

Pick up from your hotel and transfer by private bus until Wankakalli, passing through Ollantaytambo, the Malaga mountain pass (4200m), before entering into the valley of Huyro and Maranura. Then from the location of Chaullay we head towards Wankakalli where we will arrive in the afternoon. Camping.

Day 2: Wankakalli - Vitcos - Ñusta Hisp´anan - Qollpaq'asa

Today we undertake the walk towards the archaeological centre of Rosaspata or Vitcos, From the domain of the hill Pucyura, as well as from the snowy Pumasillo peak, we can appreciate the Ñusta Hisp'anan stone. In both places, we enjoy a panoramic view of the landscape. We carry on towards Qollpaq'asa before arriving to our next camp.

Day 3: Qollpaq'asa - Ututo

Today we will head into the zone of Maukachaka. We continue on, passing by Pampaconas, before descending towards Ututo where we shall set up camp. Opportunity for fishing.

Most of the journey today is down hill, and after one hour we shall appreciate the vegetation of the cloud forest. We shall also witness the Pampaconas River, where we will eat lunch on the river shore. After a rest, the walk continues until we arrive to the Vista Alegre (Happy View), where we shall set up camp.

Day 5: Vista Alegre - Concevidayoc

After breakfast, we enter into the valley of Vilcabamba, where we shall quickly notice the warm climate. We will arrive to Q'asa Cross, where we will appreciate the abundant flora and fauna, such as the cock of the rock, before arriving to Tunkimayu, and on towards Concebidayoc. Camping.

Day 6: Concebidayoc - Espiritu Pampa - Chontabamba

Today we head towards the East, and towards the Pampaconas River, that will drive us to Espiritu Pampa, a natural vantage point, where you will be able to appreciate the portion of the plateau which is formed by the triangle between the Pampaconas river, Chomtabamba and the base of the mountain of the archaeological group of Espiritu Pampa. We will appreciate Inca Andenes, and the famous Rumichaca, an Inka stone bridge. After the guided visit we continue on until Chontabamba camp.
