Tour Details

Looking for an exciting yet a less crowded trek to Machu Picchu from Cusco? Consider Cachicata Trek, also known as Inca Quarry Trail to Machu Picchu.

Unlike most treks from Cusco, Cachicata is an off the beaten track trek and is gaining popularity. This trek offers a deeper orientation to the Incan civilization.

The trek takes you across an impressive variety of landscapes and ecological areas. It goes over a high pass with all the principle white peaks of Cusco in view. You will be climbing to a pristine cascade and will be camping near archaeological Inca complex. The campsite is along a less trodden path heading to the Chancachucu Pass. On the last day of the trek, you will be passing through an Inca water channel. Then you will descend through dazzling panoramic views of the Camicancha Valley and Urubamba. From here, Incas worshipped the Apus (gods) called Intipunku.

Ollantaytambo, was once the royal estate of the Incan emperor, Pachacuti. It possess some of the most impressive stonework. The prime quarries of Ollantaytambo were here.

On this four days trek, you will be tracing the foot steps of Incas. The trek goes through the path that Incas took, while transporting these stones. You will also be able to see some astonishing stone blocks namely “cut stones” or “tired stones”. These stones were abandoned in the Inca quarry.
