Rise early for a 5 a.m. hotel pickup in Cusco and embark on your tour. Pass by a charming variety of towns along the way, notably anta’s pampa. This area is known for its agricultural, wide pampas, prairies, fertile valleys, and long rivers. Upon arrival to Cachora, meet with your trekking team, muleteers, mules/horses, and staff. After a brief rest and a light breakfast, the trek will begin. The first hours of the trek will be on mostly flat terrain until the lookout point and pass of Capuliyoc. Here marvel at the vast mountain chains, the Apurimac canyon, and the Apurimac river. After lunch, continue your trek, and descend to Chiquishca, where you will have dinner and camp.
