The highlight of this day is definitely the spectacular ascend to the Campa Pass (5100m/16732ft). We will also pass several lovely lagoons on the way to our camping site in Pacchanta (4350m/14270ft). Here, we will visit the hot springs for some well-earned relaxation before a typical Peruvian dinner.
After breakfast, our trek continues back towards the village Tinqui (3900m/12795ft), from where we will take a bus back to Cuzco. On the way, we will visit either Tipon or Scylla and have a typical dish of the region, such as guinea-pig or chicharrón (grilled pork). Your adventure ends upon arrival in Cuzco.
