Tour Details
Waqrapukara Day Trip

Waqrapukara in Quechua means “Horn Shaped Fortress”. It is a hidden treasure in Southern Cusco. This secluded archaeological site is perfect for those wanting to explore something historic on off the beaten track. 

This Inca site is a mountain top fortress that nestles at 4150 metres above the sea level in the rocky outcrop. Built in between two horn shaped mountain peaks. The archeological complex houses eight agricultural terraces and stairways made of stones. 

Our full day hike begins at an Andean village named Wayki (Huayqui). It is a three hours drive from Cusco. You will be ascending to about 550 metres to reach the fortress from here. The route will take you through many ecological zones. It offers breathtaking views of gigantic rock formations of the Apurímac Valley, along the way. 

Not so long ago, La Republica, a renowned newspaper in Peru, interviewed the archaeologist, Miguel Cornejo. He was studying about this mysterious fortress. Miguel Cornejo said, “Waqrapukara is an Inca sanctuary of the first order that denotes immense political and religious power, as-yet undeciphered.”

As a lesser known attraction, we have dedicated guides on this tour. They are locals, with an extensive knowledge about history and culture.
