Tour Overview

The “Q’eswachaka” bridge requires annual maintenance because the straw (Ichu) that it is made out of begins to decompose. Since the Inca times the reconstruction is carried out in 3 days (before the second Sunday of June) and on the 4th day the ceremony concludes with a folk festival, where local people share their unique traditions and customs to the world.
