The 2 day Huchuy Qosqo Hike route from Patabamba  to Lamay is intended for those who have limited time but still wish to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the Cusco region. This 2 days hike to Huchuy Qosqo is a mix of low peak mountain range, Inca Ruins, Inca Trail and the incredible surrounding landscapes.

Huchuy Qosqo Hike is an archaeological site north of Cuzco, Peru. Its name is Quechua for “Little Cuzco.” It lies at an elevation of 3,600 m (11,800 ft), above the 3000 m high town of Lamay and the Sacred Valley.

The site received its name in the 20th century; previously it had been known as Kakya Qawani. Pedro de Cieza de León, in his Second Chronicle of Peru, claimed that the palaces were built by Viracocha, the Eighth Inca. Amongst a large number of buildings, some stone, some adobe, is a kallanka (great hall) which is 40m long. Providing water to the site is an Inca built irrigation channel, lined with stones for about 800 m.
