Queswachaca, The Last Inca Bridge & 4 Lagoons with Picnic

Marvelous Experience!

This is an absolutely unique tour. The Q’eswachaka bridge is located across the Apurimac river, at about (3,900m/ 13,000 feet), in Canas province. This handwoven grass bridge spans 120 feet, and is rebuilt every one or two years as communal effort by all the local people of the region.

The weaving and construction techniques have passed from generation to generation since the bridge was first built by the Incas. It is the only remaining example of an “Inca” hanging bridge that can be seen today.

This is a small group tour for 10 people maximum.

  • The trip begins in the city of Cusco we will pick up you of your hotel at 6:45 a.m. approximately with south-west direction. After almost two hours of travel we will visit the four lagoons: Pomacanchi Lagoon, Acopia Lagoon, Laguna Asnaqocha and the Pampamarca or Tungasuca Lagoon. After enjoying a quiet moment near the lagoons, the next place we will visit will be the small volcano of pavilions that is located near the town of Yanaoca.

    Finally we will arrive at the Apurímac river and the impressive Inca bridge. This hanging Inca bridge is made of vegetable fiber (Ichu) and is located on the Apurímac River in the district of Quehue. The existence of this bridge dates from the Inca times, the renovation and maintenance is done once a year by the local people of the four communities that are around. Before beginning with the renewal of the bridge an offering is given as a sign of respect and gratitude to the Pachamama.

    Along the way we will have our picnic, enjoying the magnificent view. Before

    We will have the opportunity to cross the Inca bridge twice, if you have the courage to do so, because it may seem easy. But without a doubt you will feel great emotion crossing this bridge so much that you will feel like Indiana Jones. On the way back to Cusco we will make a last visit, the colonial Inca bridge of Checacupe where you will be able to see the differences between both bridges.This interesting trip ends in the city of Cusco at approximately 7pm.
