Our adventure for today will start early in the morning and after you had breakfast at your hotel (or you may require them a box breakfast and you can have it along the way), our View Peru guide will pick you up from your Cusco hotel in order to transfer you through the northwest part of Cusco towards the highlands of Anta. During this trip you will see the delightful scenery of our puna region which is known by its wonderful landscape with forests, lakes, rivers and the flight of the condors, being this the main attraction. After a 2 hours ride we arrive to Tarawasi Archaeological complex (2660 mts/8727.1 ft), its name means “Tara’s place”, Tara is a prickly bush which prevents the development of lichen on the stones. It is believed that this was one of the complexes built by Inca Pachacutec during his reign; Tarawasi had the purpose of a ceremonial center that was located at the beginning of Chinchaysuyo (northern nation of the Incas), its Main Temple stands out as it is based on a pyramidal ceremonial altar that was used for the most important ceremonies of this region. If you want to add a visit to this site, then please consult with your travel specialist.
Afterwards, we will head to Limatambo town (2600 mts/8530.2 ft) where we will have beautiful views of the valley and make some last minute purchases. Then we will start our trip to Chonta community (3500 mts/11482.9 ft) through a steep dirt road for about an hour.

PART 2
HUMANTAY LAKE

upon our arrival we will prepare the latest details and be provided with some short safety instructions before starting our 1:30 hrs trek of moderate difficulty to the viewpoint, during the walk we will see the characteristic flora and fauna; with some luck we can see some endemic birds (owls or even parrots). Once we reach the main viewpoint (3320 mts/10892.4 ft) we shall stay at this marvelous spot in order to wait for the condors soaring upwards, being transported by their huge wings. The impressive Andean condor may reach up to 8,000 mts/26246.7 ft in height and in Andean cosmology, he connects the Superior World or Heaven (Hanan Pacha) with the Earthly World (Kay Pacha). Watching this imposing bird with a wing span of up to 3 mts/9.8 ft soaring to the backdrop of the breathtaking canyon, undoubtedly is an unforgettable experience. Following this breathtaking experience, we will have our sumptuous gourmet lunch in our exclusive lunch spot accompanied by refreshing beverages. Finally, after this lovely occasion, we will return back hiking again to Chonta community and from here by our exclusive transport back to Cusco for another 3 hours, arriving to your Cusco hotel by 18:30 pm approx.
