Tour Details

Inkilltambo trek is one of the new experiences in Cusco. The full day trek from Cusco takes you to the archaeological site close to the complex of Sacsayhuaman. In addition, you will also be visiting the temple of monkeys and the temple of the moon. 

The word, Inkilltambo derives from Quechua. It means Incas Prison. The place was never a prison. In Fact it was a site where the Incas rested while travelling around the massive Inca empire. 

Inkilltambo was built during the rule of the eighth Inca emperor, Viracocha. When his son, Pachacutec took over the empire he expanded it. 

Upon Spanish conquest, like most other sites in Cusco, this too was abandoned and eventually forgotten. It was because of the recent excavation and restoration work, people are gradually getting to know about its existence.

Inkilltambo Trek

At 0800 AM we will be picking you up from your hotel in Cusco. In our private transport we will be driving you through the San Blas neighbourhood to Kusilluchayoc. The Monkey Temple. 

Our guide will give you a detailed tour here and will be explaining the significance of the temple to Incas. 

We will then be hiking to the Moon Temple. This is a masterpiece of Incas. The whole temple is carved out of a single rock. 

After touring this incredible site, we will be hiking on one of the most scenic routes in Cusco. We will be on a pat that is popular for its Eucalyptus plantations. To Incas, this was Qhapaq Nan or the Original Inca Trail through which they travelled to Machu Picchu from Cusco.

I enjoyed every moment of the hike. I did it on my second day in Cusco and it did help me acclimatise as well. Special thanks to Karen, she did a tremendous work. She shared many information.

Quite a unique experience. These sites are closer to Cusco but it is worth doing the tour to understand the story. I thank Karen for organising this at a short notice.
