We will arrive at “Queswachaca” at 9:00 a.m. which is located at 3,792 meters above sea level. (12,440.94 feet) and we will have the opportunity to visit its ancestral bridge, which is an architectural and cultural heritage of the QUECHUAS, the Inca bridge of “Q'eswachaka” (Straw Bridge) is built over the majestic Apurímac River, located in the province of Canas. The last Inca bridge deteriorates due to the degradation of its material (straw) caused by the harsh climate of the highlands, requiring an annual maintenance that consists of a complete reconstruction.

The reconstruction is carried out by the peasant communities of Chaupibamda, Choccayhua, Ccollana, Quehue, and Huinchiri, all belonging to the Quehue district. The bridge's dimensions are 33 meters in length and 1.20 meters in width, and the material used is solely straw (Ichu), which is braided by the highland inhabitants. This process of braiding straw, a plant fiber, involves sun drying, pounding, and flattening, resulting in long and fine ropes (QUESWAS), which are then twisted and braided again. Our journey back to Cusco will include a visit to the impressive Ccarañahui or Q'arañahui caves, promising a spectacular conclusion to the tour.

Legend has it that the Incas used to visit the cave to communicate spiritually with their gods, adding a mystical and spiritual touch to this place. This underscores the cultural and historical significance it holds for the region. The presence of a mysterious lake at the bottom of the cave adds an element of mystery and natural beauty, making it a fascinating destination for travelers. We return to Cusco after a day of exploration and discovery. Overall, our "Q'eswachaka" Inca Bridge Tour offers a complete and exciting experience, combining history, culture, nature, and mystery, providing travelers with a comprehensive view of the richness and diversity offered by the Cusco region in Peru.

Finally we will have our lunch at midday and we will be arriving in Cusco at 04:00 p.m. approximately to drop them off at their hotel, closing with a flourish this exciting and enriching Tour to the Inca Bridge of “Q'eswachaka”.

ANNUAL RECONSTRUCTION

The “Q'eswachaka” bridge requires annual maintenance due to the decomposition of the straw (Ichu) used in its construction. Since Inca times, the reconstruction has taken place over three days (the second Sunday of June), culminating in a fourth-day festival where various indigenous dances can be observed. This event provides an opportunity to share unique traditions and customs with the world.
