Do you want to see a part of Peru that tourists rarely visit?
Do you want to relax in nature without crowds surrounding you on all sides?
If so it might be time to do the Kinsa Cocha hike in Peru!
The Kinsa Cocha hike is flat and meanders around three different lakes outside the town of Pisac. It’s one of my favorite cheap day trips from Cusco and can be done in one day without a guide.
Check out some of my favorite photos from the Kisa Cocha hike, and then use this guide to visit Pisac’s three lakes and see them for yourself!

The difficulty level is easy and you can reach with a collectivo to Pisac and then by taxi to teh start of the trek.
