Qhapaq Ñan II

Once more we followed an invitation by the Centro de Investigaciones Turísticas (CEITUR) of the Universidad Técnica Particular de Loja to explore the Qhapaq Ñan (English: Great Inca Road, or Main Andean Road), this time into the Loja province in Ecuador. We explored the south of the province visiting Gonzanama, Quilanga, Amaluza and Jimbura and crossed the border to Peru to Espindola.

The highlight was a hike leading us up to 3400m altitude to the Lagunas Negras (black lakes) in the Bosque Protector Colambo Yacuri (Protection Forest Colambo Yacuri). Still old remains of Pre-Inca ruins and paths can be found in the area, some of them are currently restored as part of the Qhapaq Ñan project.

For more information on the Qhapaq Ñan please see the links in the first Qhapaq Ñan report below.
