Tour to Culebrillas – Qhapaq Ñan

USD $95/per person

If you prefer not to get up early, this two-day tour starting in the afternoon and camping in the Inca Trail is the ideal one for you. The journey begins in Sisid Añejo, one of the largest and oldest communities in Ecuador located a few minutes away from Ingapirca. You will walk through the moors of the community until you reach the Culebrillas Lagoon refuge where you will spend the night.

The second day begins with a walk around the Culebrillas Lagoon, a hidden lagoon between grasslands and covered by a mystical mist considered a sacred place by the Incas because of its snake shape. You will trek the Qhapaq Ñan routes and arrive to the Ruins of Paredones.
