Inkilltambo Cusco Tour Itinerary


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.


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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Atv Tour Odin and Fernando were great as well as our driver Rene. Very informative about the city of Cusco. Enjoyed our tour with this company and these individuals who took us around. Great time! Highly recommend!!!
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.
Awesome Service and Tours Fernando and Patricia were SUPER responsive - usually responded to emails within 10 minutes!!. The arrangements they made for Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and surrounding areas were awesome.They were waiting for us at the airport and did everything we asked them. Our guide for the four days was Herberth and driver was Juan Carlos. Both were SUPER SUPER great. Juan Carlos was such an amazingly pleasant driver with cute stories. He also was a very safe driver. Herberth was very knowledgable and helpful. Took us all over the places with details about the history and details. We had friends who were not able to climb much and they accommodated us all.On the day we had planned to do rainbow mountain we did not feel great and emailed Fernando at 5am and he responded within 5 minutes with other options for us to do that day. Overall, if you are going to Peru and want to visit the historic sites, you SHOULD go with these people. They are SUPERB!!
Great memories for our family We went for a tour to the rainbow mountain, service was excellent and then we decided to go for another tour on the next day to the sacred valley, it was also excellent. Our guide was Fredy and our driver was Juan Carlos, two excellent people, honest and respectful. I recommend them. Gracias por todo, lo pasamos increíble.
Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding A group of 7 of us did a One Day Rainbow Trek and Horseback Riding. Freddy was our guide and he was prompt and with us every moment of the journey. They were so accommodating to move the debrief meeting the night before because we had a food tour that evening. Freddy had so much energy, knowledge, and excitement to share with us about his native homeland. In addition, he made sure that we were well taken care of when one of us was actually sick from the altitude. It was such an amazing experience and Freddy made sure we got the best of it. Thank you! Highly recommend Kondor Path Tours.

MachuPicchu trek We had an amazing experience with the one day trek and the day after visit to the MachuPicchu site with Hober Guia, this guide is very knowledgeable of the history and culture, patient and kind and took care of all of our needs. The tour was arranged perfectly taking care of all small details. Very much recommend!
Maras Moray hike We recently did this hike with Bonnet. She was a highly experienced guide. V good English. Judged our ability well and made for a great day out.
MachuPicchu and Rainbow Moutain We worked with Kondor Path for two tours, of Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain. Everything they did was well organized, well documented, well communicated. The two guides and the driver were great, very friendly and knowledgeable. All were bilingual (English and Spanish). At Rainbow Mountain we rode horses to the base of the really steep part of the mountain (this saved some 7 km of hiking). But that last part was quite difficult! I'm glad I had prepared and gotten conditioned.
