Waqrapukara is a great two day hike offering the chance to venture away from the more populated routes. We have developed a fabulous route that allows full appreciation of the area and that sufficiently challenges the acclimatised and physically fit traveller. This trek itself provides an immense backdrop of incredible Andean landscape and the Inca site delivers on all levels; visually, culturally and archeologically.

We did a 5 days trip in the sacred valley and to Machu Picchu with Quechua trecks, and thanks to Zac and Mayra we had the most amazing time. Right from the start, Mayra made arranging the trip very easy and efficient, she tailored the itinerary to our needs and wishes, and made sure it provided a wonderful experience given the short time we had. The quality of hotels and restaurants selected, meals provided and transportation were excellent. And of course, it would not have been the same if it wasn’t for Zac, the best tour guide. Zac is extremely caring, knowledgeable and funny. Travelling with him is like travelling with a friend rather than a tour guide, and he takes the most amazing photos as well :) thank you Mayra, Zac and the Quechua treks team for this amazing trip:)
