Itinerary

Inkilltambo Cusco Tour Itinerary

Half-Day

Explore Inkilltambo

At 9:00, we start the trip to the surroundings of Qenqo Grande to begin the scenic walk exploring the impressive Inca ruins. The Inkilltambo trek is through the original Inca Trail from Cusco. The trekking adventure is easy to moderate, ideal for acclimatizing the first days in Cusco before undertaking long walks or going to considerable elevations of the Andes.

On the Inkilltambo Walking Tour, explore Cusco’s Temple of the Moon, Inkilltambo Ritual Temple with its Inca terrace system, and the Inca Kallachaka Bridge bases, Incawasi Ruins, and Qolqapampa. At the end of the walk, we return to Cusco.

INKILLTAMBO ARCHAEOLOGICAL GROUP

The archaeological site of Inkilltambo is known as Inca Carcel by the locals; the site is located northeast of Cusco and on the left bank of the Cachimayo River.

The archaeological site of Inkilltambo has different elements linked to each other, highlighting the terraces, water fountains, circular superimposed platforms of ceremonial connotation (Altar), and other peculiar structures. With the Inca Pachacuti ruler, Inkilltambo restructures to intensify the religious cult in 1400 AD.

RUMI WASI ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE

The northern sector of San Sebastian has the presence of a gentle slope modulated by platforms, which they did establish to make fields of little extensive culture in the middle of vegetation provided by considerable botanical diversity. Today, the area is in urban expansion, threatening the integrity of the entire pre-Hispanic agricultural infrastructure, corresponding to an essential sector in seventeenth-century YAKANORA.

The terraces accompanying this slope ended in the south with a large esplanade erected to remind the mythical place called Qollqapanpa, which remains a ceremonial platform.

Travel Guide

Facts About Tour Inkilltambo Ruins 

Take the opportunity to uncover the treasures of the Inca Trail on the Inkilltambo Hike, filled with culture and nature’s wonders. Don’t miss it!

Some impressive and accessible Inca ruins in Cusco include the Inkilltambo Archeological Site, the Temple of the Moon, and the Temple of the Fly.

Yes, these Inca ruins can be visited by hiking. The self-guided hike starts at the famous overlook of Mesa Redonda and ends at the Cuscos Plaza de Armas.

Plan around 5 – 7 hours to experience this free self-guided Cusco hiking itinerary fully.

The hike is moderate in difficulty due to the altitude and lack of signage.

You should wear a good pair of hiking shoes and bring hiking poles. Bring lunch, snacks, and a water filter to replenish water bottles. Layered clothing and a rain jacket are recommended to protect from the sun. An offline map, battery charger, cables, and a day pack with a stocked first aid kit, sunscreen, bug spray, and a baseball hat are also recommended.

There aren’t any official trail markers, but the main sites like Inkilltambo are marked with the official red and white Archaeological Park signs.

The free hiking trail tour can be hiked any time of the year. Be prepared for muddy paths, cloudy skies, and sometimes overgrowth during the rainy season. In the dry season, the sun can be intense.

Although this is an independent hiking itinerary, always hike in this area with a buddy or two. Women travelers should be especially mindful, as there have been reported robberies and rapes in the nearby caves and hillsides. Take the necessary safety precautions before attempting this hiking itinerary.

Yes, some Cusco city tour companies offer a hike to Inkilltambo and other interesting sites, but most tours skip past other little-visited sites. You can contact a travel agency like Kondor Path Tours at info@kondorpathtours.com for more information.

Wonderul site, great tour operator and excellent guide We had an evening flight so wanted to do something during the first half of the day, really glad we picked this half-day tour of the Sillustani ruins. The tour agent (Kondor Path Tours) was very flexible about our pickup time and dropoff options, so that really helped. We were able to arrange a later pickup in the morning that included all our luggage and then they dropped us off at the Juliaca airport after the tour. But the Sillustani towers themselves are a real treat to see and learn about all their history. The site itself is very serene and beautiful, with the lake in the background from the main viewpoint. Our tour guide (Richy/Ricardo) was excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. He gave us not only the ancient history of Sillustani and the adjoining areas, but also a more contemporary history of Peru and the Puno region I have to add that he went over and above by even helping us to check our bags in at JUL airport!

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.

Proffecional company and perfect guide Kondor Path Tours are so proffecional and easy to work with. We went with them on the 2 days short Inca trail to Machu Picchu with our three children. The correspondence was great and everything was perfectly planned in every detail. Our guide Alfredo was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant to be around! Thank you Kondor Path Tours - we couldn’t have asked for more!!

Trip to Rainbow Mountain Excellent experience!! Our guide Odon was prompt with pickup time and extremely friendly. The drove to rainbow mountain was smooth. We did the horseback ride up the mountain, and Odon was right there with us. The actual hike up, he provided support, laughter, and information about the region. Amazing experience with an awesome guide. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour. The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member. The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!

Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
