Archaeological Complex of Choquequirao
At 93 km far from the city of Abancay. We should first arrive at the village of Cachora and then go 30 km more (15 hours on foot) towards the archaeological remains.
Choquequirao (Chuqui K'iraw : "cradle of gold") may have been one of the lost cities in the valley of Vilcabamba where the Incas sheltered since 1536. Choquequirao is a complex composed by nine architectonic stone groups. It has hundreds of terraces, rooms and systems of irrigation, the buildings are displayed around the esplanade or main square.




PROVINCE OF PAUCARTAMBO


Tres Cruces (Three Crosses)
At 109 km to the southeast of the city of Cusco by the partially asphalted road to the village of Paucartambo (about 4 hours by car). From here we should continue 45 km more as far as the village of Tres Cruces (2 hours and 30 minutes by 4x4automovile by a road in bad conditions).
Tres Cruces is a natural belvedere located in the border of the Biosphere Reserve of Manu. In this place we admire the white ray of light:
a phenomenon produced when the sun appears on the horizon. Light then goes through the wet atmosphere and spreads as it would be passing by a prism.

The result are three suns, one of them jumps from one place to another. This especial movement of solar light happens during the sunrise of the winter solstice on June 22nd.




PROVINCE OF QUISPICANCHIS


Village of Oropesa
At 24 km to the southeast of the city of Cusco (about 30 minutes by car).
Oropesa is traditionally known as the "Land of Bread". There they keep numerous domestic ovens dedicated to the production of delicious peasant bread.

Pikillacta
At 30 km to the south of the city of Cusco (about 45 minutes by car).
Pre Inca city whose apogee dates between the 800 and 1100 years AC during the period in which the regional confederation of Huari developed.

It was the entrance door to the Sacred City of the Incas. It has straight big streets, long blocks of rectangular buildings. It is surrounded by walls and spheroid buildings in the west area. Walls are high made with boxes and mud mortar and its basements get thinner as they go upper.

Church of Andahuaylillas
At 36 km to the south of the city of Cusco (about 1 hour by car).
Its construction dates from 1580 and it has a simple fašade contrasting with the rich baroque interior where we find golden altars, murals, paintings and multicolor ceilings.

Archaeological complex of Tipon
At 25 km to the southeast of the city of Cusco (about 45 minutes by car), 3316 m.a.s.l.
We can get there by the asphalted road to Cusco-Puno taking a asphalted detour at the level with 20,5 km.
According to the legends, Tipon is one of the royal gardens that Wiracocha ordered to build. It is composed by twelve terraces protected by stone walls perfectly polished and huge terraces, canals and ornamental water falls that along its flora offer a marvelous landscape to the visitor. This place is composed by several sectors: Tipon, itself, Intiwatana, Pukutuyuj and Pucara, Cruz Mongo, the cemetery of Pitopujio, Hatun Wayq'o, among others.
