Qeswachaka Bridge Tour

TRIP OVERVIEW

This 1-day tour to the Inca Bridge of Qeswachaka will take you to know one of the little-known places on the route of the southern valley of Cusco, it is located above the Apurímac river to which it has a distance of 15 meters high. It belonged to the road network of the Qhapaq Ñan or Inca trail, it is one of the Inca bridges that still maintains its authenticity intact since it is made of puna straw or ichu. Around 1,000 residents of nearby communities are responsible for rebuilding it annually in June

The Qeswachaka Bridge is unique and for that reason we design a tour for you. It is made with vegetable fiber as part of the extensive network of Inca Trails. Qeswachaka is a very interesting full day excursion, come and be part of this incredible experience. Visit and walk the last Inca Quechua Bridge, which even the locals use today. The Inca bridge is restored by the locals every year in June and takes at least 3 days to be ready for use. Like our ancestors the Incas, the locals only use natural grass from the highlands and many hands to do it.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Quehue.
  • Qeswachaca Bridge.
  • Four Lagoons (Pomacanchi, Acopia, Asnaqcocha, Pampamarca).

ITINERARY

We will pick you up from your hotel / hostel from 4:30 to 4:45 a.m., where we will start the trip in our private tourist transport through some districts of the city of Cusco. The first stop will be in Combapata, to make use of the toilets and enjoy a continental breakfast in a family home.

We will continue to the Combapata viewpoint where you can enjoy its beautiful landscapes and above all be able to see the union of the Salcca River with the Vilcanota River, the famous Sacred River of the Incas, from there we continue to the district of Yanaoca, one of the eight districts of the province of Canas in Cusco. After an hour of travel we arrive at the district of Q’ewe, where the last Inca bridge “Q’eswachaka” is located, built with vegetable fiber and has a length of 28.67 meters. The surprising thing is that it is rebuilt once a year in June by four local communities.

Once you have the first views of the Inca Bridge, we will begin to descend the bleachers or stairs before reaching the place where the Bridge itself is located. There we will have time to explore and cross the Inca Bridge of Q’eswachaka, after having felt the adrenaline and crossing the bridge, your guide will narrate the story of this Inca engineering work, the process of construction and care of the Bridge.

Once the visit is finished, we will go back to Combapata where we will stop to enjoy lunch and have a digestive walk to the viewpoint where we will appreciate the Pampamarca and Asnacqocha lagoons, we will continue to another point of the viewpoint to appreciate the Acopia Pomacanchi lagoons, where we can appreciate a large amount of regional flora and fauna and an enriched Andean culture along the way.

After the visit to the 4 lagoons, we will return to the City of Cusco in our tourist transport arriving approximately between 16:30 and 17:00 hours.

Trip to Cusco 2024 I was in Cusco for 4 days, traveling with friends, we visited Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, the archaeological park of Machu Picchu with the company Peru top Expierence. From Paraguay, the organization of the trip was in charge of the guide William Silva, super attentive to doubts and with the necessary information for the tour. In Cusco he welcomed us again and then we stayed at Prisma Hotel, good service. Then to go to Pisaq, to the train station in Ollantaytambo and to Machu Picchu, another guide from the company, Mr. Carlos Alfredo, accompanied us. In Aguas Calientes we stayed at the Andino hotel. Good attention. Good gastronomy in general, except the place called El Maizal that includes the bus tour to Ollantaytambo, from there they either change places or include a personal lunch in that day's tour. Super recommended @perutopexpierience to discover the wonders of Cusco! The flight from Lima to Cusco was by Jetsmart. Regular care. Many requirements for foreigners regarding luggage but not so much for nationals. They should improve that.

Inolvidable!! Hicimos varios tours laguna de Humantay, Montaña de 7 colores, Valle Sagrado, Machupicchu y City Tour, la coordinación estuvo muy bien, no tuvimos problemas ni con traslado o reservas, los guias fueron muy amables y los almuerzos y desayunos que eran parte del tour eran diversos y abundantes. Excelente servicio. Como recomendación revisar bien los horarios de los tour ya que inician super temprano 4:00am y terminan tarde, así que considera hacer 2 tours laguna y montaña y dia 3 valle sagrado que es mas tarde 7:30am y regresando de Machupicchu haz el tour por la ciudad en la tarde para descansar la mañana. A nosotros nos funciono perfecto! ;)

A great adventurous journey! If you would love to explore the surroundings of Machu Picchu but you're worried the 4 day hike might be too hard for you, this is the perfect option. We had a great time, beginning with the convenient and comfortable communication with our guide Manuel who supported us to organize the transport to the start of the treck and the hike itself was a unique experience that we don't want to miss. The hike itself rewarded us with the perfect first view on Machu Picchu on day one and we had the whole second day to explore the whole side more in detail. Accomodation, Food, Transport and a great guide is included in the price. Thanks to Manuel it was an great adventureous journey - thanks for that.
