Temple of water tour out of crowd; Tipon, Pikillacta, Andahuaylillas and Guinea pig on your trip to Cusco

In Tipon purify your spirit and take away bad energies in the water temple of the Incas, look at the magnificent hydraulic engineering of the Incas. Pikillacta the sample of town planning of pre-Incas "Wari", have the chance to compare between cultures; then Andahuaylillas know as "the Sistine Chapel of South America" which has very impressive and overwhelming ornaments. . . on the way, you can try our local dish Guinea pig on the land of the guinea pigs. . .


Pick you up from your hotel

Drive towards Tipon, Temple of the water where you will soak up pure energy from the Pachatusan Mountain God (which means who holds the world) and Mother Water; have the explanation about the magnificent hydraulic engineering of the Incas which still works even today as how used to work or how used to be used, impressive views and its terraces.

Next stop in Pikillacta pre-Inca ruins, stop in viewpoint over the lake of Huacarpay.
Finally, we visit Andahuaylillas' Chapel to see the art as the paintings, altarpieces covered in gold leaves as same in Vatican church.

Depending on the time, we might stop in Tipon village to taste the guinea pig, a traditional dish prepared in locally way since Incan empire. Only if the desire of customer is to eat it or at least try a bite.

This route is less visited and less offered for tourist, but unique and very worth it.
I can say one of my favorite places which I recommend it.
At the end return to Cusco and finally drop off at the hotel.
