A land trip from Cusco to Camicancha – Horseback Riding  to Ancascocha Lagoon

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 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.

From Paucarcancha, we walk along the Cusichaca River to ascend towards MISKAY and leave Ancascocha at kilometer 82 of the railway.
