Magnífico sitio, es un tour duro pero muy ameno. Actualmente solo se puede llegar a pie o en mula. Por el camino hay varios manantiales. Lo que más me gustó fue el Apurimac, bueno sin tener en cuanta la llegada a las ruinas que son impresionantes. Trek muy recomendable y más con Howlanders. Saludos!...
