Overview

Feel like you’re ‘free as a bird’ during this full-day excursion from Cusco combining condor-watching and visits to nearby Inca sites. Watch these graceful birds soar above Apurimac Canyon, enjoy a typical lunch in Limatambo Valley, and explore the remains of Inca temples at Quillarumiyoc and Tarawasi.
  • Watch Andean condors and visit the Inca sites at Quillarumiyoc and Tarawasi
  • Learn about the Inca cults of the moon and fertility at Quillarumiyoc
  • Check out the 24 trapezoid-shaped niches at the Tarawasi Inca site
  • Marvel at the graceful condors as they soar above Apurimac Canyon
  • Includes box lunch, roundtrip transport, and all entrance fees
Get picked up from your Cusco hotel in the morning and drive to the Quillarumiyoc Inca site. You’ll explore this ancient area’s collection of terraces and altars with your guide, learning about its important role in the Inca cults of the moon and the fertility of “Pacha Mama.”
Proceed from there to Tarawasi, and another sacred Inca site known for its collection of more than 24 trapezoid-shaped niches and terraces arranged to appear like flower petals. Then leave these two Inca sites behind and head into Limatambo Valley, stopping to enjoy a typical lunch and learn about the Huaychaou people.
Then head to the town of Chonta, situated at an elevation of 11,100 feet (3,400 meters) near the Apurimac Canyon. You’ll have plenty of time to observe the graceful Andean condors that are known to hang out in the area, then return back to Cusco, arriving at your hotel at 7pm.
