We will take a moment to explain to you the historical and cultural importance of this place, take some photos and then continue our journey.

We will continue for about an hour until we reach the mesmerizing viewpoint of Combapata. We will take another quick break so that you can relish of this beautiful view; a gorgeous landscape wherein the two sacred rivers of the Incas, the Salcca river and the Vilcanota river have their junction.

Then we will continue our trip to Yanaoca, one of the eight districts of the province of Canas, in the region of Cusco. We will continue another 30 minutes until we reach Q’iwe where we will be able to catch the first sights of the last Inca grass rope bridge.

Tour Highlight: Q’eswachaka Inca Bridge

Here you will begin to descend the stairs by walking until you reach the last Inca bridge. If you dare you can cross the nearly 30 m / 98.4 ft long bridge that is built purely out of grass fiber. Your guide can help you make a foto while you cross and feel the adrenaline. Take your time to marvel at this incredible craftsmanship before our guide will give you a detailed explanation of the construction process, the cultural traditions, and its significance.

After the visit, we will return to Yanaoca to have a tasty lunch in one of the local restaurants. Fully recuperated we will continue our journey to visit the beautiful jewels of the 4 Lagoons: Pampamarca, Asnacqocha, Acopia, and Pomacanchi.
