Leaving in Cusco at 5:00am for Q'eswachaka. We stop en route to see the famous four lagoons close to Cusco, and we will also stop close to the town of Yanaoca for breakfast. Around 11am we arrive at the bridge of Q'eswachaka where we can see the large number of community folk working on the reconstruction of the bridge. Here the Andean Priests (Pacos) are in charge of the ancestral ceremony of "The Payment to the Earth", where they sacrifice offerings for "Pachamama", or "Mother Earth", with the aim of gaining her help and protection for those working on the bridge's reconstruction. We have lunch near the bridge and later return to the town of Yanaoca for dinner and the night in a basic hotel.
We take a traditional breakfast early in the morning and we return to the bridge, which by this point will be completed. We will have the opportunity to see the celebration of the completion of the bridge, which includes ceremonies, traditional dances and Andean music. Our return is planned for around 07:00pm.
We run full day trips to the bridge all year-round, as well as an extended 2-day trip once a year on the date of the ceremonious rebuilding of the bridge by local communities.
