TOUR CORRIDOR SOUTH – A DISTINCT EXCURSION

“The Tour Corridor South, is one of the most interesting because it allows to learn about the past of Peru, the pre-Inca period and the presence of the Church of the time”

PIKILLAQTA

Early in the morning, we will first pick you up at your hotel and then direct ourselves to the archaeological complex of Pikillaqta. This pre-Inca site is one of the most famous and best preserved of all the ancient cities that have existed in Peru. However, there are still many other aged buildings in the country, each of them bearing witness to specific knowledge and technologies that then contributed to the rise of the largest empire in the Western Hemisphere.

The pre-Incas people who occupied the Cusco Valley were relatively peaceful. They sought to dominate the natural resources of the region. Pikillaqta was developed between the years 600 and 1000 AD. by the Wari culture from the central Andes (Ayacucho). Pikillaqta then have extended to the south, in the high Andean regions such as Cusco and Sicuani.

ANDAHUAYLILLAS

Inside the church, there are two different divisions within the single nave. Each of these parts corresponds to a step of the construction of the building. A main arc separates these two sections. The oldest is Mudejar style, an architectural style mixing Arab and Christian elements, developed between the 13th and 16th centuries.

This one is at the bottom, where the altar stands and ends at the entrance of the church, up to the facade. The church also has two pulpits; the oldest is under the main vault and the other in the opposite wall, outward. The quantity of frescoes that cover the walls and especially the ceiling with geometric patterns, flowers and golden ornaments is impressive.

THE BAROQUE ALTAR

The baroque altar is carved in cedar wood and covered with gold leaf. In its central part, there is the image of the “Virgen del Rosario”. The tabernacle, meanwhile, is covered with raised silver plates and includes a mirror placed to reflect the light of the candles and one that enters through the door to assist in the interior lighting.

At the back, next to the altar, is the sacristy, which consists of a drawer where the sacred garments and chasubles with precious metal embroidery are arranged.

This sacristy also kept interesting gold and silver jewels that were stolen in 1992 but have never been recovered. Finally, there are other altars and chapels on the sides, where an interesting collection of anonymous paintings by the School of Cusco depicting St. Peter’s life rests.

Finally, on the arch, we can see a painting of the “Virgen de la Asuncion” attributed to the Spanish painter Esteban Murillo.

RAQCHI

The “Wiraqocha Temple” was a grandiose construction for its time. Indeed, it was architecturally classified as “kallanka”, a long building, a kind of shed. It was a building completely covered by a wooden and “ichu”, grazing vegetation, roof. With 92 meters (302 feet) long and 25.25 meters (83 feet) wide, the temple had a central wall made of carved stones, at the base, and adobe at the top, which was about three (3) meters. The base of this wall was 1.65 meters thick, while the top was 1.30 meters high.

Today, there are only 12 meters left. A century ago, it was 15 meters. According to a hypothetical reconstruction of Santiago Agurto, the original wall was approximately of 16.60 meters. The side walls were 1.20 meters thick and were to reach about 3 meters. The roof was to be most impressive, covering more than 2500 square meters and having an inclination of nearly 50◦. To support it, circular columns, whose bases are still between the central wall and the lateral ones, were 1.60 meters in diameter and about 9.80 meters in height.

Hacer el camino del inca es una experiencia dura (especialmente la segunda jornada), pero que, sin duda, hará completamente diferente tu llegada a Machu Picchu.
El camino une, enseña, endurece, sensibiliza y deleita todos tus sentidos. Cuidado con el mal de altura, que puede estropear todo esto, pero que, si nos ponemos positivos, también forma parte del camino como una experiencia mas!
Camping Tours gestionó todo maravillosamente bien. Fueron profesionales y amables durante todo el proceso de reserva, pero sin duda ninguna, lo que hizo perfecto el camino fue nuestro guía Victor. Amable, profesional, simpático, paciente y sobre todo, un gran experto y conocedor del entorno y la cultura. Gracias a él, la experiencia fue realmente inolvidable y especial. Gracias Victor (Paco) por tu generosidad y tu compañía!

Mi esposa y yo realizamos la travesia del Camino del Inca (4d/3N), y desde el comienzo nos sentimos muy bien atendidos. Desde el guia (Victor Paco) hasta los chicos porteadores, fueron muy atentos y respetuosos, sobre todo con mi esposa que sufrio mal de altura…… super amables y pacientes!!!.
Cabe destacar lo impecable de la organización, desde las comidas (super abundantes y ricas) hasta los campamentos. Con respecto al guia, creo que no podiamos tener a uno mejor, muchisimo conocimiento de la cultura Inca y muy dispuesto a transmitir su conocimiento.
En fin, si buscan una experiencia única, esta es la que deberían realizar.
Gracias a todo el equipo de Camping Tour!!! Marcelo y Nelly.

Solo tengo palabras de elogios para nuestra experiencia con camping tours. Nunca me había imaginado una tal organización fuera posible en un camino tan duro. Primero nuestra guía Rubén, persona encantadora, amable siempre con buen ánimo y con ganas de explicar bien las cosas. Nosotros erábamos un grupo de 6 (2 españoles, 2 brasileñas, 2 escoses). Aunque no todos hablamos un idioma común, Rubén fue capaz de involucrar a todos y no dejar nadie atrás. Hemos estado 4 días compartiendo comidas, caminos y charlas. Al final era como ser parte de una misma familia. Segundo, La comida excelente todos los días. Tanto los desayunos (ricos de todo café leche the coca huevos omelette etc) Como las comidas y las cenas (siempre variando con sopas carnes pescados arroces etc). Nunca me lo habría esperado. Recomiendo camping tours a todo el mundo el que quiera enfrentarse está aventura. Si el grupo es pequeño mejor. Nosotros hemos estado a principios de abril 2017 y el tiempo incluso fue clemente, con pocas lluvias. El camino es duro sobretodo el segundo y tercer día, pero se hace. Basta con tener un mínimo de entrenamiento y buena fuerza de voluntad. Al final nos dejaron un certificado oficial para haber completado el camino. Un detalle muy bonito que nos encantó. Gracias a todo el equipo y a los portadores, que por cierto son unos cracks.

Somos una pareja que hicimos el camino inca con Camping Tours en octubre de 2016. Una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. Del camino no voy a hablar aquí (no tengo palabras), pero sí de Camping Tours: una organización absolutamente impecable. Tiendas cómodas, personal amabilísimo, guía extraordinario (siempre estimulando, adaptando el ritmo, con buen humor, muy buenas explicaciones) y comida… ¡¡la mejor de Perú, que ya es decir! Y todo ello a un precio considerablemente más asequible que con otras compañías. ¡Camping Tours MUY RECOMENDABLE!
