The detailed itinerary of Ancascocha Trek 3 Days along the Inca trail and Machu Picchu

BRIEFING: One day before the Ancascocha Trek 3 Days circuit to Machu Picchu, we have a practical explanation from the tour guide. The briefing is at 06:00 pm at the reception of the travelers’ hotel. If clients require another time and date for the 3-day Ancascocha Walk briefing, write to us, and we will gladly reschedule the appointment.

Day 01: A land trip from Cusco to Camicancha – Horseback Riding and Ancascocha Hike

At 5:30, we travel from Cusco to Camicancha through the Pomatales valley, passing through Ollantaytambo and Chilca. Our muleteers and saddle horses are waiting for us in the Chica area. We ride the horses towards the Ancascocha lagoon, a three-hour ride. The first leg of horseback riding is to gain time by shortening the distance by climbing towards the Andes’ heights and then walking the Huayanay pass from the Ancascocha lagoon.

The area’s remoteness makes the Andes unique and impressive with its mountain ranges and its beautiful multicolored terrain. From the Ancascocha lagoon, we start the walk ascending the mountain for an average of 40 minutes to reach the Huayanay Pass. From Paso Huayanay, we descend the Andes Mountain range for an average of 1 hour and a half until we reach the foothills of QESQA. We camp in Qesqa with a beautiful view of the valley of Paucartambo and Wayllabamba.

The activities of Ancascocha Hike 3 Days to get out of the tourist circuit is to start the hike at 05:30, descending the mountain to enter the Paucarcancha valley. Paucarcancha is the focal point of the union of the three valleys because Inca roads go to the Ancascocha valley, Salkantay through the Inca Canal, the classic Inca Trail, and several other secondary hiking routes.

From Paucarcancha, we walk along the Cusichaca River to ascend towards MISKAY and leave Ancascocha at kilometer 82 of the railway. Explore some Inca sites like Paucarcancha, Tunasmoqo, Patallacta, etc.; we have lunch at km 82.
