Ecuador - Inca Trail to Inga Pirca - Map & Itinerary



Day 1. From Quito, travel by private transportation through the Avenue of the Volcanoes, passing such snow-capped giants as Cotopaxi (5.897m), Illinizas (5.263m) and the tallest peak in Ecuador, Chimborazo (6.310m). On the way to Alausi, from where a small steep mountain road leads to Achupallas (3.400m), we pass through a number of communities where the biggest and most colorful Indian markets in the country are held on specific days each week: Saquisili (Thursdays), Latacunga (Tuesdays/Saturdays) and Ambato (Mondays). Lunch provided. Dinner prepared at overnight campsite near Achupallas. (L/D)

Day 2. Awaken in an area which has not changed much in the last five centuries, and begin the trek to Ingapirca. The Inca road follows Rio Cadrul through hilly country on the way to Laguna de las Tres Cruces, passing Cerro Callana Pucara on the West and the pyramidal Cerro Mapaihuana (4.365m) to the East. To reach the lagoon, pass through a natural rock arch and cross the river before climbing to 4.000m. From this point it is only a few kilometers to the lagoon and campsite. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are prepared by our staff. (B/L/D)

Day 3. Breakfast. Continue Southward through a mountainous pass with fantastic views of Laguna Sanshavin and Cerro Quilloloma. Follow the ancient road to Laguna Culebrillas and the nearby Inca ruins at Paredones, arriving two hours later. Pitch camp and dinner under the stars near the quarry from which the Incas mined Diorite, the igneous stone used in the construction of Ingapirca. (B/L/D)

Day 4. Morning devoted to the trek to Ingapirca along a portion of the Inca road, which is up to 7 meters wide. Lunch. Exploration of ruins, visit the on-site museum and question local guides about Incan culture. Private transportation to the charming colonial city of Cuenca for dinner and hotel accommodation. (B/L/D)

Day 5. In the morning a city tour of Cuenca. Lunch. Fly to Quito. (B)
