INCA TRAIL PARALLEL CIRCUIT -  ANCASCOCHA 3 DAYS
⇒  Description Trek..

Walking in the wonderful Andes of Peru, this trek takes us to the spectacular scenery of the Sierra del Cusco very close to the famous Inca trail, but less traveled and more rewarding. This hike takes its name from the lagoon of 12,795 feet whose name is Ancascocha

Trekking Itinerary..

Day 01 Cusco / Quewllacocha
We drive for an hour and a half from the city of Cusco to a town called
Limatambo near the Osotacancha  community,  in the quiet valley of sondor. . Here we expect our riders and horses who carry the camping equipment along the route.
Then gently we begin to ascend the ravine Dairy paralleling
the river of the same name. Shortly after, the road becomes more pronounced
until you reach a narrow and wet area, which houses a spectacular forest of native trees called Queuñas. After crossing the forest, the valley opens again and Huascapampa us where we enjoy a delicious lunch move. After a comfortable rest we continue to reach our resting place our camp in Quewllacocha (Andean highlands)

Day 02 / Quewllacocha / Ancascocha
After enjoying our breakfast surrounded by giant mountains we continue our trek through the Andean highlands to cross two mountain passes, the first step of Accojasa (4 700mt /15.420ft) and then we impress the first sight of snow Huayanay, Our award for our efforts .
finally began the descent through the rest of the walk, to reach the foot of the mountain. Let's take this beautiful view to enjoy a lunch that I will hardly forgotten. Then we continue towards the valley of Ancascocha, with a spectacular view of Lake Ancascocha
and the snowy mountains surrounding it, plus original traces of an ancient Inca road in the area and a beautiful natural landscape (This is natural sona inhabited by condors and hopefully we will see the actual flight).
Then we continue the path and descend, leaving the arid highlands, and enter a fertile valley covered Andean flora, and the spectacular view of Mount Veronica. We ended the walk just 20 minutes from the train station.  we board our train for the town of Aguas Calientes where we will sleep.


Day 03 Machu Picchu for me and return to Cusco.
(It is recommended that early awakening because it is wonderful to enjoy the sunrise at Machu Picchu). After our delicious breakfast in the hotel we climb on a bus for 25 minutes after covering breathtaking, winding jungle paths eventually reach the point of access to the famous citadel, it is time to deliver identifications and entrance tickets the citadel. Then we start our expedition with our expert (2 hours) long enough to recognize the main parts of the citadel and then give us a very good time to visit the place freely and without our guide (free time for photos, meditation, admiration and everything that comes to mind). After this visit pleasant you can take time for lunch at the Esplanade in the Restaurant of Hotel Santuary Lodge or take the bus to Aguas Calientes where there are various places for lunch.

Option 01 - Lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge (located at the gateway to the citadel) Worth it though is quite expensive.
Option 02 - Lunch at Aguas Calientes (More options and price range, it is also a good idea).

In the afternoon we take the train back to Cusco (The guide will inform more details about schedules and services) will return the same way with the difference that our thoughts will be different and perhaps longing for recommending this tour their loved ones.
