Day 1: CUSCO – LARES PASS – CUSCO
We will have an early morning departure by private transportation to Calca Town (one and a half hours on surface road), then continue for another hour up along the Andean valley named Qochoq.

We will stop to visit Ankasmarka an archaeological site and one time food storehouse for the entire valley. Then we will continue to reach Wilkapunko pass, with a summit (14,256 ft.) Here we can admire the incredible Andean landscape and nearby glaciers.

Our options are to enjoy the view, visit the lagoon (10 minute walk) and observe the Andean flora and fauna. The Andean Goose is very rare bird that could be observed in this area. For those who enjoy nature there is an old Inca Trail that descends all the way down to the village of Totora (two hours walk). On the way we will see the old Inca tombs on the cliff sides and encounter various Andean villages and friendly Quechua people. We will reach an impressive narrow canyon named Waqanwayko where the Torrent Duck is usually spotted.
We will enjoy our box lunch surrounded by the beautiful Andean landscape.

We will then board the private transport and return to Cusco arriving late in the afternoon.
