After a 35-minute walk, you reach the Perolniyoc waterfalls. The magnificent views of the falls invite you to get your feet wet and relax in the quiet and green area. We continue ascending towards the ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF PEROLNIYOC – SOCMA.

We packed our adventure gear and started hiking to reach the top of Kuychicassa Pass. From the top, we can see parts of the Sacred Valley of the Incas around Ollantaytambo, its valleys and ravines. After descending, we have a short undulating road until we reach the Inca gate of the sun, “Inti Punko de Ollantaytambo.” The panoramic views direct toward the snow-capped peaks of Waqa Willka or Verónica and the entire SACRED VALLEY mountain range.

Today we explore the three quarries of the Cachicata Inca during our descent to the Urubamba River. The trail is well marked and wide enough to enjoy outdoor activities. The Inca masters of Inca architecture from the Cachicata quarries moved stones weighing 30 and 140 tons over 10 kilometers to build the Ollantaytambo archaeological park. We found several giant stones that transferred to the other mountain; we call them tired stones because they did not reach their final destination.
