The Restoration of the Inca Bridge
The Queshuachaca bridge has a distance of almost 30 meters, it is completely woven of straw or Ichu (in the Quechua language), which is why the bridge has to be renewed in the second week of june of each year, the reconstruction lasts 3 days and on the fourth day the bridge is inaugurated with a folkloric festival.
The communities of Hunchiri, Chaupibanda, Choccayhua and Ccollana Quehue are responsible for the reconstruction, all of them belong to the province of Canas.
Can we walk on the Inca bridge?
The answer is yes, as mentioned above, the reconstruction of the bridge is made every year so that local people and even visitors can use it.
The Andean men were the first ones to create suspension bridges in universal history, so don’t miss out on this magnificent experience.
