Apu Pacha Tusan - located above San Salvador a 15 minute ride upriver by taxi (we paid 80 soles for a roundtrip ride and for the driver to wait for 2 hours while we hiked), then a winding accent up the mountain. There is a 16th century church that is built near a small stream. The waters are said to be sacred and there are baths built to bathe in. When walking the trail the locals who live there asked if we were walking to Cusco, which is a 6 hour walk at the local pace (not the gringo pace) Every September 17th there is a festival where there is a night time walk from Cusco to the church over the mountain pass. The trail isn't well marked, every so often there is a yellow arrow but currently there is a construction road that is criss-crossing the ancient trail cutting it in many parts, no other travelers hiking and lots of cows, donkeys, pigs and sheep. Be sure to great all the local you pass.
Vendor stalls open every day selling some of Peru's best selection of local and non-local crafts
