Day 1: Chacan Rainbow Temple and Cusilluchayoc Ruins Hike

  • 1 Lunch
You will depart from your hotel this morning and drive north of Cusco, near the Sacsayhuaman Ruins, where you will see one of the best views of the city. On the way, you will see the people of Cusco starting their day working outside of their houses and in their fields, some traveling to Cusco for their jobs. Once you reach the trailhead, you will start your hike to the Chachan Rainbow Temple, where a small waterfall makes a spectacular rainbow under the sun's light. Afterwards, continue hiking uphill, following a small stream. After approximately two hours of hiking, you will reach Cusilluchayoc Temple, where lunch will be served. Then, it is your chance to explore this Inca Temple and surrounding caves. The remainder of the hike is downhill to the city, passing through the old part of the city: San Cristobal and San Blas neighborhoods. Finally, you will arrive back at your hotel. This hike is characterized by beautiful landscapes, Incan Ruins and interaction with the local people of Cusco.

This trip is approximately 4-5 hours. The difficulty level is difficult, good physical condition required.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
