Tour Details

Undoubtedly, the Incas knew how to solve challenges and make the most of nature’s resources. Proof of this was the construction of several suspension bridges. Its construction was made based on vegetable fibers and weaving techniques. They were built in places where the rugged geography of the Andes mountain range made it impossible to connect some communities with others.

It is located in the district of Quehue in the province of Canas. It is located at a height of 3,700 meters above the Apurimac River. This bridge is 29 meters long and 1.20 meters wide.

Q’eswachaka is the last Inca bridge preserved to date, and is renewed every year for its conservation during the second week of June by the communities: Chaupibanda, Choccayhua, Huinchiri and Ccollana Quehue.

The renovation process is a major four day event that has been recognized by some of the leading channels such as NOVA and BBC. It is also declared as Cultural Heritage by the Peruvian government.

Itinerary

Full DayCusco - Q'eswachaca Bridge Inca - Cusco

Early in the morning we will pick you up from your accommodation in Cusco to take you in our private transport through the southern valley. The route contains the beautiful lagoons of Pomacanchi, Acopia, Ancascocha and Pampamarca.

Along the way we will stop at a local restaurant to enjoy a delicious nutritious breakfast. We will continue our trip until we reach the province of Canas after breakfast.

Arriving at the town of Quehue, we will walk to the Queswachaca Inca Bridge. Here our local guide will provide you with all the information about this bridge and the preservation of this bridge carried out by the surrounding communities. Year after year they participate in the tradition of reconstruction and transmit this knowledge to future generations of their communities.

After touring the bridge and the landscape that surrounds it, highlighting the great Apurimac River, we will have a delicious lunch typical of the area and with natural ingredients.

Finally, after having known the last preserved Inca bridge, we will return to Cusco and leave it near the Plaza de Armas of Cusco.
