Departure : 9:00 a.m., any day
Duration : All day (until 4:30 p.m.)
Location : Pisaq
Season : All year round.
It’s the most exciting experience available near Cusco. Canyoning introduces you to beautiful countryside landscapes, within the Archaeological Complex of Pisaq, while loosening an unsurpassable adrenaline rush.
Pisaq is located N.E. of Cusco, in the Incas´ Sacred Valley. In Pisaq, a 100 meter deep canyon cuts into the Vilcanota River Valley from the N.E. This is like wet, upside-down climbing on some beautifully sculpted river rock.
ITINERARY: Cusco – Pisaq – Cusco
At 9:00 a.m., we’ll pick you up at your hotel and go to Corao, 40 minutes N.E. of Cusco, where we prepared your canyoning adventure.
After arrival, everyone will test his or her equipment, while the guide explains the details of our intended trip down. Then, we´ll begin the descent.
The rappels are as long as 30, 40, and 50 meters at a time. We reach the bottom after about 5 hours and exit by way of the river itself… Hence the wetsuits. Finally, we’ll have lunch and go back to Cusco.
