The Chinchero to Urquillos hike in Peru is an excellent option for anyone staying in the Urubamba valley or on a day trip from Cusco. It’s tucked away far from the crowds, and the only other people you’re likely to encounter on the trail are a couple of locals tending their land or their livestock. The hiking trail from Chinchero to Urquillos is actually an old Inca trail that few other visitors ever get to explore.
Hiking along this ancient mountain path, you’ll enjoy dramatic scenery in one of the steepest valleys in South America, as well walking past the impressive Chinchero ruins and archaeological terraces. It’s peaceful and beautiful and one of the best adventures in the Sacred Valley. Peru is full of surprises, which we have to share.

At 7 in the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel. Then we will go to the town of Chincheros, which is located 30 kilometers northeast of the city of Cusco. We will pass through the archaeological center of Chincheros; this archaeological center was one of the resting places of the famous Inca Pachacutec.
After appreciating the engaging platforms of this Inca site, we will start the walk along a beautiful and well-preserved original Inca trail, thanks in part to the local people, because even today, they continue to use this road to get around to the Ministry of Culture. Without a doubt, you will enjoy walking this path that will lead us to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
After walking for approximately 45 minutes, we will have arrived at a beautiful waterfall. Pocpoc Waterfall. It has a fall of approximately 20 meters.
