We leave at 08:00 am or 2:00 pm, depending of the request of the clients driving on the asphalt road to Puno km 18, is a national archaeological park located to the west of Cusco. It covers a territory of about 2200 acres. It is found in the district of Oropesa, province of Quispicanchis. Half kilometer out of the paved road we find the small town of Tipon. It is part of the village of Quispicanchis that used to be property of San Lorenzo de los Valles in (1650- 1802). Without doubt this was the most important monument of the colonial time.You can admire several royal rooms that according was built by the Inca Wiracocha as a house and shelter for his father Yawar Wakaq who returned after the war against the Chankas.
This group of village is at 3500m. Besides there is a big area to cultivate with walls built with stones perfectly carved. Even more impressive is the system of the irrigation that is still used in by the farmers. The advantage is the water captured in the spring season. The river is channeled by some carved stones that have been accurately calculated, they sometimes form falls almost vertical composing an excellent hydraulic engineering work. Some of the fountains must have ceremonial purposes. Due to its location and the existence of a round wall, Tipon must have been a very exclusive place interdependent to other sectors such as "Intiwatana" to the west, "Pukutuyoq", "Pukara", "Hatun Wayko", etc. After 4 hours of guiding tour back to Cusco and transfer to your hotel.
