This is the “Last Inca Bridge” and is the only one of its kind, and I am part of the Great Road network of Inca roads “Qhapaq Ñan” in ancient times. The impressive bridge is 33 meters long and 1.20 meters wide and swings 15 meters above the river, every year it is rebuilt, with a communal work of about 1000 farmers from the towns of Winchiri, Ccolana, Quehue, Chaupibanda and Choccayhua.

The trip begins in the city of Cusco with the pick up from your hotel at 7 a.m. approximately south-west direction. After almost two hours of travel we will visit the four lagoons: Pomacanchi Lagoon, Acopia Lagoon, Asnaqocha Lagoon and Pampamarca or Tungasuca Lagoon. After enjoying a quiet moment near the lagoons, the next place we will visit will be the small pavilion volcano that is located near the town of Yanaoca.
Finally we will arrive at the Apurimac river and the impressive Inca bridge. This Inca suspension bridge is made of vegetable fiber (Ichu) and is located on the Apurimac River in the district of Quehue. The existence of this bridge dates from the Inca era, the renovation and maintenance is done once a year by the local people of the four communities that are around. Before starting with the renovation of the bridge, an offering is given as a sign of respect and thanks to the Pachamama.
We will have the opportunity to cross the Inca bridge up to two times of course if you have the courage to do so, it may seem easy. But without a doubt you will feel a great emotion when crossing this bridge so much that you will feel like a Chaski (Inca messenger). On our way back to Combapata, our delicious lunch awaits us in this town where we will make a last visit, the colonial Inca bridge of Combapata where you can see the differences between both bridges. This interesting trip ends in the city of Cusco at approximately 5.00 pm.
