One small portion of an old but restored Inca Trail is visible and, if possible, it could be visited. The route will follow to the southwest, where a tiny small volcano is found: Pabellones Volcano. Finally, after nearly an hour, the Qeswachaca Bridge is reached. Q´eswachaka Bridge is loacted acrooss the Apurimac River, at about 3,900 m.a.s.l (13,000 ft) in Canas province. This handwoven grass bridge spans 120ft, and rebuilt every one or two years as comunal effort by all the local people of the región. About 700 men and women from the communities Huinchiri, Ccollana come to Q´eswachaka to a Fiesta that celebrates the construction of the bridge. The final day of the party is the second Sunday in June where you can see typical dances and walk across the completed bridge. You can also visit the bridge site, in the days preceding, to see the bridge bulding in progress. The weaving and construction techniques have passed from generation to generation since the bridge was first built by the Incas. It is the only remaining example of an Inca hanging bridge that can be seen today. There is the opportunity to meet a local native family and their house, where there will be plenty of time for learning about their lifestyle, thoughts and traditions, even there will be a small example of how to create ropes and strings from the Ichu (the same material being used for building the Qeswachaca Bridge). We will camp at this comfortable area with amazing landscape.
