The Ankahuausi site features the Killarumiyoq or Quillarumiyoq the meaning of which when one breaks down the name into its component parts is : Quilla, meaning moon, Rumi being rock, and Yoq meaning place of.Although this, like almost all ancient places in the area are regarded by conventional academics as being of Inca construction, there is evidence that at least one older ancient culture may have been present here due to the much higher technological standard  of the stonework than the Inca had access to.

Walking past fields cultivated with potatoes, corn and quinua we will have the opportunity to see a variety of birds and native plants and to learn about the customs of the Andean people. Your guide will teach you a little Quechua (the language of the Incas) so that you can communicate with the people you meet on the trek. After lunch in a  local community we have the opportunity to visit a local family and practise some the Quecha language we learnt earlier during the day.

Despite it's proximity to Ollantaytambo and the wide variety of interesting features, hardly anyone actually comes up here. Cachicata is an extensive site, it was the quarry used by the Inca for the construction of Ollantaytambo and there are various points of interest including several large buildings, quarried stones left half finished and abandoned throughout the site, chullpas (burial houses) and a cave with Inca mummies still in place.

After a guided tour of the site and lunch we'll continue our way down the mountain following the original platform used for transporting the stones to Ollantaytambo. Our final visit of the trek will be at the nearby ancient ruins Pinkuylluna overlooking the Patacancha river and the Incan town.
