City: Cusco, Mountains // Activities: Visit of the Perolniyoc waterfall & Inca ruins //
This day tour to the Perolniyoc waterfall proves that hiking in fascinating and untouched places while discovering Inca ruins in the highlands doesn’t require waking up as early as most of the other hiking tours demand it. Enjoy a short half day trek close to Cusco, without altitude issues as this site is lower than Cusco. This day tour combines nature and culture into an experience that is perfectly made for hiking lovers with the desire of cultural enrichment. Apart from the stunning Perolniyoc waterfall, you will also visit the Inca ruins that are directly above it. This setting offers the perfect scenery to enjoy a picnic with a view over the entire valley.
