Introduction

The Incas united the cities of the Great Tawantisuyo by roads and bridges; Q’eswachaka is an example and the only surviving bridge of Inca craftsmanship and ingenuity. Q’eswachaka is rebuilt every June by the local population in a unique festival of music and dance, which adds to the mysticism and sacredness of the ceremony that precedes the rebuilding.

This tour showcases the city’s vibrant culture in all its glory. Crossing this suspension bridge is a challenge and an adventure that you cannot miss.

Places to visit when visiting the Q’eswachaka Bridge: Combapata Viewpoint, Inca Bridge of “Q’eswachaka” and the lagoons of Pampamarca, Asnaqocha, Acopia and Pomacanchi.
