Some time after starting our hike, we will see two brilliant glacial lakes, Suirococha and Yuraccocha, where we can see variety of birds like the ibis and Andean geese. From this point,
the road begins to climb steeply until the first step called Pachacutec (15419ft). Upon reaching the top we will enjoy a spectacular view of the snowy Pitusiray(18864ft) and Chicon (18143ft). An original Inca stone path will take us along a descending corridor. We will follow a series of waterfalls until we get to Quisuarani community where we will camp.

After breakfast, we will begin our trek to the highest point of the puna, the opening of Huillquicasa (14435ft). From this high mountain we can see the Cordillera Vilcanota and some
gaps. The well-marked path zigzags down to the green pastures, where we can observe: llamas, alpacas, sheep, Andean birds and the unique Peruvian vizcacha. After we will continue descending until we reach the quaint community of Cuncani (12139ft) where we have a break. The road follows the river through the valley below for about 3 hours, entering into a tropical climate. The small farms and communities will be a sign that we are near the Trapiche community.
