DESCRIPTION

Description of the Condor Viewpoint Tour in Cusco

With the “Condor Viewpoint Tour in Cusco”, you will be able to observe the largest bird that flies in the Andes, considered the sacred bird of the Incas and spiritual messenger bird.

The condor canyon or MIRADOR DE CHONTA, is a place where we can locate the Andean condor, called the sacred bird of the Incas, this place offers the majestic flight of the condor in its natural habitat and the impressive canyon of the Apurimac with more than 1500 meters deep.

QUILLARUMIYOC, in it you can observe terraces, symbols engraved on the largest rocks and an ancient temple dedicated to quilla (the moon), the feminine divinity. It presents a moon carved in low relief on a large rock of marine origin, the Inca architects carved this moon in a semicircle with the rim with an inner base. This semicircle has the shape of a crescent moon carved with 7 platforms, when seen from a distance it gives the impression of being the profile of a puma, where the carved crescent moon represents the eye of the feline.

TARAWASI, is an archaeological complex. It is composed of a great platform with walls of carved stones joined in a cellular style. We can find the stone altar, agricultural terraces, fountains and irrigation canals. Tarawasi is a compound word from Quechua, ″tara″ means thorny bush that bears fruit and “wasi” which means house.
