Tour Queshuachaca

✅ Q'eswachaka rope bridge tour: The last Inca bridge

Full day excursion to the Inca bridge of Qeshuachaka

At InkanMilkyWay, we offer you unique non-traditional experiences such as this tour, where you will visit the last Inca bridge in the world, known as Q’eswachaka located on the Apurímac river in the southern area of Cusco — we suggest booking the Q’eswachaka tour beforehand.

During the Q’eswachaka rope bridge excursion, you will also see other attractions such as the four lagoons: Pomacanchi, Acopia, Asnaqocha and Pampamarca and if you book a private tour you can also visit a beautiful volcano known as Pabellones, which is very close to a small town known as Combapata.


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.


Curious fact:

The Andean men were the first ones to create suspension bridges in universal history, so don’t miss out on this magnificent experience.
