This trek is going to expose the magnificent, ancient development of Pumamarca and how the Incas took advantage of the terrain, building hundreds of terraces for the agriculture of different crops in this, the beautiful, fertile Valley of Patacancha.


We start the day in the early morning with a visit to Ollantaytambo one of the most impressive Inca temples which also functioned as a fortress during the rebellion of Manco Inca against the Spanish Conqueror's. Not only will the archeological site impress you but also the village itself, which has a special and charming atmosphere, built on the foundations of the original Incan town. 


From Ollantaytambo we will take a local trail that follows an ancient Inca channel coming from Halancoma Mountain, a part of the Urubamba Mountain range. During our hike we will pass some humble local homes and farmers who will most likely be herding animals. Scenes that will bring our minds back to hundreds of years ago. 


After about 2 and a half hours of gradual uphill we reach the top and Pumamarca, the Inca site that presides over the Patacancha Valley. The peaceful Pumamarca will be a perfect place to enjoy our snacks, (Please let us know if you want to try our delicious box lunch) before our drive back.
