Waqrapukara Full Day Fortress Tour

Our Waqrapukara full day tour will take you to one of the ancient Inca temples located in the Andes Mountains in Cusco, this fortress is built on top of one of the steepest mountains, this trekking experience will also submerge you in an area where travelers do not usually go. This great trek takes you away from the traditional trekking in Cusco.
This archaeological center is a mixture of pre-Inca and Inca construction, therefore it was built by the Qanchi ethnicity and in the time of the Incas probably built in the period of Inca rule Wayna Khápaq considered a fortress.

Waqrapukara is a new tourist attraction whose mysteries have not yet been deciphered and that allows a magnificent view of the night sky, populated by constellations, planets and stars of enormous value in the Inca cosmovision; Fortress, sanctuary, astronomical observatory are the interpretations of this enigmatic monument of the classic Inca architecture that is to 4, 300 meters on the level of the sea, in the abysses of the canyon of the river Apurímac, to the south of the city of Cusco.
