A beautiful hike that starts around the archaeological site of Chinchero (if you have the BTC -Cusco Tourist Ticket- we can start from the site itself). We will go down nearly 1000m following an ancient Inca trail to Urquillos, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Along the way, we will pass by impressive waterfalls. Before arriving in Urquillos, we follow an ingenious canals system used for irrigation since the Inca era.
