Inca Trail + Maragua or Potolo *
This tour takes us to the crater of Maragua!
We leave in a CAR early in the morning heading in direction of Chataquila (3650 meters above sea level) to start with the Inca Trail. We walk 2-3 hours mostly walking downhill on the trail which has been rebuilt on some parts .
From there it`s a 30-40 minutes drive to reach the little village of Maragua in the middle of the Crater. Once you´ve taken a look around, the car will drive you back to Sucre for your free drink in the Joy Ride bar!
OPTIONAL: The car takes you directly into the Crater of Maragua from where you walk to the dinosaur-footprints of Niño Mayo. That is a 4-5 hours walk (9km), up and down on small paths, exhausting but with really nice scenery!!! In this tour you DON’T walk down the Inca Trail.
*In the rain season. From November to February, the river Ravelo may get to high to be crossed safely with our 4x4. In that case we will go to the village of Potolo and visit the local weaveries. This decision can only be made once we get to see the river…
DON´T FORGET: to bring with you a small backpack, sunblock, sunglasses, enough water, your camera and some money. Wear comfortable clothes and hiking shoes.
This is a 1-day hike with not so many hiking hours. If you want to hike MORE, ask for our 2-DAYS HIKING TO MARAGUA!
