Cusco: Uchuyqosqo This is a very nice trip if you like hiking, being in the middle of nowhere (just being surrounded by nature) and like to go camping with a group and having fun with each other!! The X-Zone is a site where few tourists come. At this place, at 1 hour from Cusco, you will find a small hill consisting of rocks and you will find caves in the form of passages. Uchuy Qosqo (small Cusco) is situated above the Valley of Urubamba and offers very spectacular views over the mountain range Cordillera de Vilcanota.
