Q'eswachaka Bridge Discovering the Ancient Wonders on a Guided Tour 2 Days

Description

A 2-day journey from Cusco to the Q’eswachaka Bridge offers a captivating blend of historical exploration, cultural immersion, and natural wonders. From the cobblestone streets of Cusco to the living testament of Inca engineering that is the Q’eswachaka Bridge, this adventure promises an unforgettable experience that connects you with the rich tapestry of Peru’s past and present.

Overview

The Cusco qeswachaca Bridge is located over the Apurimac River about 11,811 feet above sea level in the province of Canas about 160km South of Cusco.
“Q’eswachaka” is a native name formed by two Quechua words: “Q’eswa” which means “to braid” and “Chaka” which means “Bridge”.  This bridge is very special because it is built in the original Inca manner made from a special woven grass (q’oya).

The material and construction techniques have been passed down from generation to generation since the Incas time since the first bridge was built in the 15th century.  This impressive bridge spans 33 meters in length and 1.20 meters wide and swings 15 meters above the river.

It’s rebuilt every year as a communal effort. About 1000 peasants from the communities of Winchiri, Ccolana, Quehue, Chaupibanda and Choccayhua are involved in the construction of this unique Inca hanging bridge.

During this trip you will also visit four famous lakes near Cusco and pass by typical villages and different typical villages such as Piñipampa, where we can appreciate an artisan tails factory and a farm fish.

We run full day trips to the bridge all year round, as well as an extended 2 day trip on the 11th – 12th June 2024 when the bridge is ceremoniously rebuilt by local community

Itinerary
