The Huaypo lagoon is located at 3,507 meters above sea level, northeast of the city of Cusco, in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in the province of Urubamba, town of Chacan and on the west side of the Chinchero district. , surrounded by the mountains of Salkantay, Verónica and Soray; Huaypo hosts a great variety of fish and birds, nowadays adventure and nature tourism activities are carried out.
We start this adventure picking you up from your hotel in Cusco and then driving you to Cruzpata where we will arrive after crossing beautiful villages and lovely landscapes that are typical of the Peruvian Andes for about 50 minutes.
In Cruzpata we find the installations where our guide will be waiting, he will give us a demonstration of how to use the ATVs and the gear in a safe way. After practicing a couple of minutes we begin the tour to the neighboring lagoons.
Our first stop is the Huaypo Lagoon with its crystal clear water that is a perfect contrast to the mountains and fields. There are many stories about this lagoon; the most famous is the one that tells the story of how at every full moon you can see a reflection of an antique citadel filled with lights in the depths of the water.
Another story about this place is related to UFOs; according to several villagers of the area they have seen and even had contact with beings from other planets.
We continue our tour having fun on our ATVs until reaching the Piuray Lagoon (Huaypos sister lagoon) and passing through the village of Chinchero. In the Piuray lagoon we can see some seasonal birds before we reach the sector called “The 5 Mountains viewpoint” from where we can see the 5 snow-capped mountains that protects the Sacred Valley.
We end our tour by leaving the ATVs in Cruzpata and returning to Cusco in our transportation.
