The appeal of Huchuy Qosqo trek is the combination of stunning Inca ruins, isolated rural indigenous villages, magnificent snow-capped mountains and exotic vegetation. The trail goes off the beaten track, over high Andean passes, through the Sacred Valley of the Incas with its unforgettable scenic views, and visits “the Green House of the Incas,” Moray and the Salt Mines of Maras.  It ends at one of the 7 Wonders of the World: Machu Picchu. No other trekking agency offers this trek!
Archeologists believe that the archeological site of Huchuy Qosqo was built during the reign of the eighth Inca Ruler, Viracocha.  Inca rulers acquired large royal estates to increase their power and wealth and their descendants who inherited the estates.  Royal estates served also as elegant country palaces and, at times, fortresses to fend off rivals for power.   Thus, the name Huchuy Qosqo, “Little Cusco” was for a royal estate or government center modeled on the Inca capital.


Machu Picchu was recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1983. UNESCO has been concerned with the increase of visitors to Machu Picchu within the last few years and worries that these crowds are causing damage. They have established new regulations for 2019 to reduce visitor traffic within this archaeological complex.

These new regulations took effect on January 1, 2019. All visitors are now limited to 4 hour visiting sessions. Tickets to Machu Picchu are now divided into three daily sessions: early morning (6AM – 9AM), late morning (9AM – 12PM) and early afternoon (12PM – 3PM). Within these sessions, visitors must choose a specific hour to visit. This is to regulate and reduce visitor traffic within the citadel– each hour is limited to 600 visitors.

The new regulations will have a direct impact on: Huayna Picchu and Machu Picchu Mountain (not to be confused with the citadel itself). In order to enjoy your tour of the citadel and hike the additional mountains, you will need to purchase an extra entrance ticket to the ruins extending your time allowed inside. This means that Huayna Picchu tickets will go up from $35 per person to $75 per person

All tours include the entrance to Machu Picchu but, in order, to hike Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, you will need to purchase an additional Machu Picchu entrance ticket with the Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu permit, which will cost a total of $75 per person. These new regulations will come into effect starting January 1, 2019 and will apply towards all tours. If you have booked Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain with us and do not want to pay the higher fee, please contact us at:

These are new regulations that took effect starting January of 2019, keep visiting our page and social sites for more information or updates on these regulations.
