Itinerary

Today, we leave the city behind and head south! Our first stop is Oropesa. This village, only 11km from Cusco, was popular with conquistadors due to its surprisingly sunny climate. It was these Spanish colonizers who introduced wheat to the area and changed Oropesa forever: it is now officially Peru’s bread capital, and exports bread all over the country and beyond! There are at least 40 bread ovens in the town, and 90% of the population are bread-makers! We’ll check out some panaderías and munch on some of the delicious pan chuta (chuta bread) the town is best known for, before heading for our next stop, Tipon.

Tipon was the site where the Incas domesticated plants for food, and it is home to impressive agricultural terracing and an extensive, still-operational irrigation system. After exploring the ruin, we’ll hike 4km down the hill through pretty farmland to the town of Tipon, where we’ll have lunch at a typical quinta (home-style restaurant). Tipon is Peru’s recognized cuy (guinea pig) capital, so this is the most authentic place to try this very traditional dish!

Our last stop is the tiny village of Huasao. Huasao is locally known for its talented brujos (witches or shamans), said to be able to make you successful in life and love with their potions, and cure illnesses with plant and animal rituals. If you’re game, you can have your future read in coca leaves!
