Tour Details

Q’eswachaka or Qeswachaka Rope Bridge Tour is a day trip from Cusco to the last remaining Inca rope bridge. Qeswachaka rope bridge is made entirely of woven grass and hangs 15 meters above the Apurimac river.

The name derives from two Quechua words, “Q’eswa” signifies braiding and “Chaka” denotes bridge.

Qeswachaka rope bridge connects the two communities on either sides of the river. Every year in June, the community gather to re-construct the bridge. This is a notable four days event that has been supported by video productions of Nova and BBC.

Making of Qeswachaka Rope Bridge:

First Day: Men from the community gather and travel around to gather straws of vegetable fibre which in Qechua is known as ichu. Women are assigned the responsibility of braiding them.

Second Day: Men remove the hanging rope bridge.

Third Day: They join the new bridge and connect it across the Apurimac river.

Fourth Day: They gather to commemorate the completion of the bridge with Andean folkloric music and dance.
