Afterwards we will head to Cuncani which will be 2.30 hours of an amazing, scenic drive into the most stunning landscapes that you’ll see in the Sacred Valley and a private class about history of photography . Once in Cuncani, our host Esteban will be waiting for us with his horses to take us to his house. Once our camp settled, and after a quick lunch we will start our afternoon trek to the lakes of Queullacocha and enjoy our landscape and wildlife photography workshop.
Around 5pm we will be back to the camp for a small rest. Before the night falls we can take a quick walk in the community. And following this, share a hot meal with our family host in their home. We will do a night time photography workshop until we are ready to sleep.
Day 2 :
At 7am we will wake up to an amazing view, as the sunlight starts to reach Cuncani. After breakfast it’ll be time for us to start our portrait workshop in the community.
A last lunch with our hosts and then it’s time for us to leave Cuncani. On our way back to Cusco, we will stop in some photographic locations to take home memories of these scenic landscapes.
