Tour Q’eswachaka Bridge and 4 lagoons + Rafting 2 Days
At the time of the Incas there was a great network of roads and one mainly called Qhapaq Ñan, these joined the territories of the Inca Empire to cross the rugged geography of the Andes, Hanging Bridges were built made of plant fibers, this complex technology has been transmitted from generation to generation and there is a single bridge that has been renewed annually until today for more than 500 years linking the past with the future; Located on the Apurímac River at 3700 meters above sea level, Q’eswachaka is the last Inca Hanging Bridge, where every year more than 1000 people from four communities gather to renew their structures, this ancestral ritual was recognized in 2013 by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

A unique tour that only Mayuc can offer, a visit to the Inca bridge of Queswachaca, which was built in the time of the Incas; and which is rebuilt by the local communities every year; plus a tour of the 4 lakes; all this combined with our exclusive rafting tour on the Urubamba river
The Urubamba River is one of the most important rivers in Peru, being part of the account of the Amazons. It starts in the high mountain ranges of the Andes until it passes through the
beautiful landscapes of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, visiting the foothills of the Mountain of the lost city of the Incas “Machu Picchu” and then entering the Peruvian Jungle. This river is characterized for having rough waters in different classifications depending on the stretch and the time of the year. The most important area where we will do our rafting will be in the area known as “Chiqui” or “Chiquicahuana” where the rapids are classified as Class III, and also in this stretch the waters are not polluted.
Our expedition starts full of adrenaline, very early we will pick you up from your hotel in our private transport, after an hour and a half of trip we will arrive to the shore of our Private Lodge “Cusipata River Lodge”, where you will be able to leave your luggage.

Our professional rafting guides (English and Spanish) will provide you with all the appropriate rafting equipment, such as helmet, wetsuit, spray jacket, paddle and self-emptying raft. After a complete safety talk, we’ll go for another 10 minutes to the Chuqui area, where you’ll be running exciting class III and III+ rapids.
Our adventure will last two hours on the Urubanba River and then arrive at our Lodge, “Where we can enjoy a delicious lunch served and you can enjoy a relaxing SAUNA.
