We will leave the city of Cusco at 8:00 am, taking the Pan American highway from Cusco until Limatambo. Then by unpaved route until Chonta community 3,400 meter sea level. On the way to Apurimac Canyon (Condor View point) we will stop in two important and interesting Incan archaeological sites of Killarumiyoc and Tarawasi. Those archaeological sites are completely different to the other Inca ruins in Cusco or sacred valley.

QUILLARUMIYOC – TEMPLE OF THE MOON was a temple of the fertility where the Incas performed important ceremonies for the girls in their first menstruations and eventually for the Mother earth looking for a good fertile period of the ground and eventually good production.

TARAWASI – Is an important ritual and ceremonial site of the Incas where they worship to sun god and to pachamama (mother earth) and also shows perfect construction, with trapezoidal niches and polygonal walls, where you can see an amazing architecture from the years of 1440AD.

After we visit those Inca remains we will continue in our private transport until Chonta village, from where we will begin to walk until the condor viewpoint. This hiking will be for 1 hour approximately 3 km to get to the view point, on the way we stop for our delicious picnic lunch surrounded by spectacular landscape.
