  • My wife and I used the American travel company 'Adventures Within Reach' to book our hike with a local guide (who come to find out is also a guide on the 5-day Inca Trail adventures). He (Miguel) met ...  more »
  • We followed the "Balcony of the Sacred Valley" route book treks in Peru of Vincent Geus: departure of Patabamba around noon, wonderful hiking up to Huchuy Qosco where we slept in a hostel, then the next day hike up to Taucca and end in taxi to Chinchero. The path is very easy to find. Day 1 is the most beautiful, the path is very easy because it is on the balcony above the Sacred Valley, it crosses villages, borrows the inca path in magnificent gorges, then arrival at the desert site of Huchuy Qosco is just magical. The next day, there are more vertical and less variety, the goal is to see the panorama to 4500 m, but no luck for us the weather was pretty clogged. This trek is generally easy, and the path is clear. The most difficult is to reach Patabamba because there not collectivo morning from Cusco. We had the chance to meet a woman who sought to make the trip and who has more for us booked the Inn for the evening to Huchuy Qosco (there are 3 Inns, the village is abandoned, and telephone or internet to book). Otherwise, take a taxi to Patabamba and happened to Huchuy, ask the guard to the ruins where housing, in this case better to bring his dinner! But it's worth the candle, landscapes and sites merveilleurs and deserts (tourists, you'll come across the peasants of the corner).

  • Visit this place with friends doing a trek that lasted about 8 hours. We camped in the ruins and after breakfast we made the descent. The road is long and stretches dangerous because you can slide, but is completely worthwhile. It's pretty cold early in the morning and is recommended to split early to avoid walking at night.

  • Incredible experience! Worth going, especially if you want to avoid crowded paths since this trekk is less known. Still historically important site though, astonishing, and a great view over the Valle of Incas. You can only walk (or horseback trip) and some parts are quite steep but totally accessible if you are a good hiker.
  • Amazing views along the trek from Cusco. Lesser known trail so not as crowded.
  • Wonderful! And the inca trail that comes there is awesome! If you want to spend the night can stay where Mr Silverio and Nativity (984068785)! Community-based Rural tourism!
