This afternoon, return to Cusco, where you can explore the monasteries, cathedrals and Incan ruins of Cusco on your own or with your guide.

Verónica and the full Vilcabamba Mountain Range. You will gain and lose elevation on this hike through the altiplano, while gazing on snowcapped mountains. Eventually, you will arrive at the Incan sites of Huchuyqosqo. This site was a palace in Inca times and is well-preserved with structure made of stone and adobe. These ruins were built on the mountain top, surrounded by clear blue skies above and bounded by streams on both sides. Relax in the shade of the Queñua trees (Andean Oak) while lunch is served. After lunch and a bit of a rest, you will continue across the open terrain and begin the switchback trail down the mountain, eventually arriving at Lamay, where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel for the evening.

Though no one knows the full significance of the ruins at Machu Picchu, recent archaeological excavations have uncovered a series of caves that may have been the site for religious ceremonies portraying the Incas’ creation story.
