Built against a mountainside and arranged in a charming colonial-style house overlooking the Sacred Valley, Pumawasi Lodge is an environmentally responsible guest house featuring clean, basic accommodation for those wanting to explore Peru’s Inca culture from a location off the tourist beaten path.
We are located 50 km north of the city of Cuzco, in the scenic Inca town of Calca, which used to be the Inca's favorite place for holidays because of its warm and mild weather.. With splendid panoramic landscapes filled with varied vegetation, bird-watching opportunities, archaeological sites, and relaxing warm springs, Pumawasi Lodge offers opportunities for relaxation, experiencing nature and cultural activities.
At your arrival to Calca we can pick you up from the 'Terminal Terrestre de Calca' or nearby areas, just let us know in advance.
What to do
You may spend your days here exploring the Inca archeological sites of Huchuy Cuzco (also spelled Huch’uy Qosqo, Yuchuy Qosqo) and Arquasmarca, bathing in the nearby hot springs of Machacancha, Minasmoqo and Lares, mountain biking, trekking, river rafting, bird-watching, and enjoying the beauty and culture of the Andes.
A view from a hill
From our terrace you can see the famed Pitusiray, a snow capped mountain that alongside the Sawasiray were considered important Inca deities which gave rise to a legend of love and betrayal.
Welcome and enjoy the comfort and warmth that you would only find in your own home.
