Huacarpay lagoon

This beautiful lagoon, surrounded by grasses and rushes, is located 26 kilometers from Cusco, in the so-called South Valley. Some people go to swim in it, others to observe the variety of birds that live there or to spend a quiet field day.

Huacarpay, which also gives its name to a small town, is located near the intersection of the road that arrives at the Sacred Valley from Pisac, and the route connecting Cusco with the Titicaca.

Around them, and on top of the lagoon, are the archaeological sites of Rumicolca and Piquillacta.

Useful tips
