Cochabamba "Valle Alto" 2 days: BOCOVA2

1. Incallajta Ruins - Totora
The citadel of Incallajta was built around 1470 AD by the Inca Tupac Yupanqui. According to the chroni-clers of the colonial era, it was built with the aim of establishing order at the empire’s eastern border and stopping the hostile incursions of amazonian tribes into the fertile valleys of Pocona and the western valleys of Cochabamba. Incallajta is the largest and most representative Inca site of the former province of "Collasuyo". The citadel holds characteristics of a city with diverse functions (political, administrative, ritual, military and domestic), represented in its vari-ous sectors and structures. On June 20/21 and De-cember 20/21 each year, rituals are staged at the ruins to celebrate the winter and summer solstice.After the guided tour of the ruins, we visit a Quechua family, share lunch with them and get some insights into the life of the indigenous farmers in the region. In the afternoon we drive to Totora, a small town that has maintained its colonial character, and take a stroll through its calm streets. Overnight in Totora. Includes lunch and dinner.
