waqrapukara fortress, waqrapukara the new wonder

Peru is a country with a lot of Inca architecture, so its ruins are its main tourist attraction. However, there are many other places that may be of importance to the tourist.

Vinicunca: Rainbow Mountain:

It’s one of the tours you can’t miss when traveling to Peru. Just three hours from the city of Cusco, the Vinicunca mountain range is a tourist attraction worth visiting during your vacation. The 16076.12 feet above sea level will test your resistance to altitude. It is recommended that you take clothes with which you can cover yourself from the cold, a not very heavy backpack and boots for trekking.

Waqrapukara, The Fortress of the Horn:

You can book an Airbnb Experience to this amazing place here.

although it is true that they are ruins, this fortress has been discovered a few years ago, so its access is quite exclusive and, the truth, is an excellent option if you like adventure. It takes at least three hours of walking to reach its 13569.55 feet above sea level. So you will have to bring water, a light backpack and appropriate clothing for trekking and cold.

Laguna Humantay:

is located in the Anta area, in the department of Cusco and is part of El Nevado Salkantay, which is one of the highest mountains in the region. If nature and beautiful landscapes are your thing, Laguna Humantay is your best option. Three hours from the capital city of Cusco, when you arrive at the community of Soraypampa, you start a walk of about an hour and a half until you reach the lagoon.

The reality of education in Peru is deficient, as shown by the latest test of the report of the International Program for Student Assessment (PISA), which places us in 64th place out of 77 countries. Taking this situation into account, educational quality in rural settings has more obstacles to overcome in order to achieve a proper level of education.
It is worth highlighting the relevance of education in the country, since, with incomplete secondary studies, nobody would be able to study even a technical career, and most likely they will continue to remain in poverty.


At the national level, there are 43.5% of children suffering from malnutrition. Only in Cusco, 57.4% of infants suffer from this disease, which is a rather alarming figure since it is the second largest region in Peru with chronic child malnutrition and anemia.Within the Cusco region, the provinces that present high rates of anemia are:

Paucartambo (65.9%), Quispicanchis (65.1%), Cusco (62.6%), Acomayo (61.5%), Espinar (61.5%) and Chumbivilcas (60.9% ).
