The Last Inka Bridge

Q’eswachaca is considered as last Inca bridge, now it’s an expression of “Living Culture” that is on 21st century; a handcrafted construction in straw or “sacred ichu”, made this ancestral task and custom to building and annual renovation maintain over time; happen, surrounding communities are responsible, for these maintenance and renovation and RENEWAL more than a joint work; is a holidays which starts on second June Thursday to Sunday which culminates with a folk dance festival: “Q’eswachaca…”; festival shows that local people retain their wonder as a legacy and heritage after generations.

When making inquiries about: current pre-Hispanic cultural manifestations; we could find a Q’eswachaka Bridge, which is a longed destination for people who have information about 

attractions and ancestral manifestations; its name in comes from Quechua language: Qheswa- people and Chaqa – Bridge or people’s bridge; Its difficult geographical location; get little diffusion and just who showed resources or facilities, such as mobility were able to visit.

An attractive considered as a gift by Mother Nature, increasing levels of visit just in a few years is located at place to don’t missed, why?; basically´, thanks to social networks per a permanent publications on their platforms, original name is “Apu Winicunca” (in basic concepts of Andean worldview APU means guardian god), geographically stands in front of a large, “Apu Ausangate” one recognized perpetual snowfalls over the world; its altitude exceeds 16,500 feet above sea level; so, take an adventure to explore Rainbow Mountain and challenge cross Q’eswachaca Bridge in a single day is quite daring; but feasible, geographical location of both places puts difficulties, but isn’t decisive when facing a decision, that performance would be reward with traveling by Four Lagoons Circuit; this adventure is timely for reduce or small groups.
