SO, WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON THE HUCHUY QOSQO TREK?

It begins with a meandering uphill walk-through sloping hill, where you can see the remains of Incan terraces and aqueducts. As you climb, you’ll start to see beautiful cliffs and even some lakes. Finally, a steep but short push will take you over the mountain pass and on top of the world.

You’ll be rewarded for your hard work two hours into the Huchuy Qosqo trek with sweeping views of mountaintops and icy glaciers for miles. Continue on the path and you’ll soon begin your descent.

HOW DIFFICULT IS THE HUCHUY QOSQO TREK?

This is very difficult to answer definitively, but if you are reasonably fit, the trek is moderate but not challenging. Most walks are designed so that you walk a comfortable distance every day and still have enough power for the next. It is very important to acclimatize to the altitude.

DO I NEED TO BE IN FIT FOR THE HUCHUY QOSQO TREK?

Yes, you must be moderately fit and exercise regularly to do this hike! In preparation, try to walk three miles a day or hit a gym in the months leading up to the walk. It is also important to be well acclimatized to the altitude.

CAN I HAVE VEGETARIAN, VEGAN OR SPECIAL MEALS?

We offer standard meals as well as a vegetarian meal option. Just let us know if you’d like vegetarian meals when you book your trek.

Vegetarian meals do not have red meat, chicken or fish. We’ll assume eggs and dairy are okay. We cannot cater specifically for vegans as it is too much of a hassle for our cooks (remember they are cooking in a tent). Most of our main evening meals are served as a buffet service, so you can always leave out what you don’t like. We can also cater for lactose intolerant and gluten free diets.

HOW MANY DAYS WILL I NEED TO ACCLIMATIZE TO THE ALTITUDE BEFORE START THE  HUCHUY QOSQO TREK?

It is very important to be well acclimatized before striving for a hike. This is why we require everyone to be in Cusco for a minimum of 1 day before regular treks such as the Inca Trail and the, Huchuy Qosqo. However, if you are doing the Ausangate trek, you will need at least 3 days to acclimatize because this trek occurs at much higher altitudes than Cusco. You can use this time spent acclimatizing to visit the city of Cusco, the nearby Inca ruins, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

WHO CARRIES OUR LUGGAGE WHILE WE WALK IN HUCHUY QOSQO TREK?

The duffle bags, which are given to you on the day of your briefing in our office, will be transported from one camp to another by our porters. The maximum weight you have is 7 kg. You will still need to bring a daypack (30lts) to carry all the essentials you want or need, such as water, snacks, camera, sweater, raincoat.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HIKE HUCHUY QOSQO?

The best time to hike the Huchuy Qosqo Trek to Machupicchu is during the dry season (April to September). During these months the views are splendid, the campsites are dry and pleasant, the trail is particularly quiet, and the weather is often very pleasant.

Trekking the Huchuy Qosqo Trail is a very popular trek to Machu Picchu, after the Inca Trail and Salkantay Trek, so during high season the trail can be busy. That said, there are so many variations on the Huchuy Qosqo trail that the routes generally never feel crowded.

However, in recent years the weather is unpredictable, instead of the dry season we are raining, and it is difficult to predict the weather spatially in the Andes, so we strongly recommend being prepared all the time for sun and rain, ” We will always provide the best quality equipment for your comfort and our staff will always decide the best places to set up the camps.

Huayna Picchu: The average time is 1 hour up and 45 minutes down. The path is steep and has small steps, so traveling with minors is not a good idea.

The state provides a place where you can store your belongings at no cost. There is also another place, but it has a cost of S / 5.00 per person.
