Huchuy Qosqo Trek Information 2023

The Huchuy Qosqo archaelogical site, is named in Quechua (little Cusco). It has an elevation of (3,600 m/ 11,800 ft),  looking down on the town of Lamay and the Sacred Valley.  SAM Travel Peru offers you this remote and unspoilt paradise, it has a a large number of buildings, some constructed from stone, some adobe and a striking great hall, 40m/131ft long.  An Inca built irrigation channel, lined with stones for about (800m/2,624ft) provides water to sustain this site.

With ruins everywhere in Peru, you don’t have to dig deep to strike gold. Back in the 1500’s, after the Manco Inca Revolution, the Quechuas constructed several small reservoirs for irrigation. Unfortunately, the Spanish demolished some other Inca structures to build the larger reservoir ,which are evidently visible.

The most recent restoration in Huchuy Quosqo, is the store house for dried meat and crops such as corn, potatoes, quinoa, and beans. The two story structure, carries evidence of the historic cooling storage system known as conjeras.

Huchuy Qosqo Trek information, a much shorter and easier trek for those of you, who are just happy to go with the flow. Accessiblity is via a dirt road leaving Lamay and runs a long a set of switch backs which arrives at a viewpoint of the ruins. The walk from this viewpoint to the north entrance of the ruins is about (150m/492ft) and runs past a few typical houses inhabited by local farmers.

These awesome non official ruins are almost run-of-the-mill here in the Peruvian Andes, yet it will constantly marvel you. Follow the pass to the highest point and embrace a grand vista of lakes, communities and glacier-covered mountains located directly east of the belly button to the Inca empire (Coricancha) in Cusco.
