We will then descend for approximately 1.5 hours more to reach the Inca archaeological site of Huchuy Qosqo, with 2-level constructions in what used to be a stop in the Inca route to Lares. After lunch, we will continue descending to Lamay, where our private transportation will be waiting for us to take us to Ollantaytambo.
