Tour Details

Our full day tour to the iconic suspension bridge which is also the only remaining Inca bridge is one of the unmissable experiences in Cusco. Q’eswachaka pronounced as Keshwa Chaca is a grass rope bridge. The name is a combination of two Quechua words – Qeswa means braid and Chaka means bridge. 

During the Inca civilization they built many roads to enhance the connectivity within the massive Inca empire. Qhapaq Nan, (The great Inca road) was the prominent one. It spans to some 25000 miles. At areas where they could not build a concrete road due to geographical challenges, they built such suspension bridges. 

Qeswachaka Inca bridge is located to the south of Cusco. It is 33 metres long and is 1.20 metres wide. The bridge is suspended 15 metres above the Apurimac river. Every year locals from the four surrounding communities Huinchiri Chaupibanda, Choccayhua and Ccolana Queue renew the bridge.

It is a four days notable event that has been recognised by some of the prominent channels like NOVA and BBC. In 2009, the Peruvian government recognised Q’eswachaka bridge as a cultural heritage site.
