Qeswachaka is 33 meters long and 1.20 meters wide, its structure is “ichu” and built with an ancestral braiding technique.
In the old times, it was part of the great system of roads “Qapac ñan”, paths used by the Inca folk and “chaskis” (messengers) of the Inca empire.
Qeswachaka is the only large bridge that survived modernity and is currently known as “The Last Inca Bridge”, its construction technique is inherited to the inhabitants of surrounding districts and are who every year from 7 to 10 June perform the renovation activities.
The experience of crossing the bridge generates a euphoria similar to other adventure activities such as Zip Line.
