Exploration Path

We begin with a visit to the community of Cúper Bajo, where a group of weavers teach us their work and culture. Next, we walk up the slope of a large hill through agricultural terraces, the valley and the town of Chinchero. We descend to Chinchero and the archaeological site. From there, we take an Inca road down to the valley. We have lunch at a viewpoint and continue descending until we reach Explora.

This zone showcases the valley’s verticality – a pivotal component around which the Incas developed their particular cosmovision.
