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.
