On route we stop first at PUKARA which was the first regional population center in the northern Lake Titicaca basin during the Late Formative Period (500 BC- AD 200), providing valuable insights into the origins of Andean Civilization in the highlands and altiplano. During its peak it covered over a square kilometer and housed thousands of bureaucrats, priests, artisans, farmers, herders, and possibly warriors. The Pukara Culture style is identified by impressive monolithic sculptures with a variety of geometric, zoomorphic, and anthropomorphic images plus intricate, multi-colored pottery in a variety of ritual and domestic forms.
As we continue north towards Cusco we stop at RAQCHI. The most important building inside the complex is the "Wiracocha temple" that according to the old chroniclers was built by the Inca Wiracocha in honour to the Superior God invisible for the Andean people: "Apu Kon Titi Wiracocha". Architectonically it is classified as "Kallanka", that is, a high building completely covered with straw (wood and "ichu"). Externally it is 92 meters long (302 feet) and 25.25 meters wide (83 feet).
