About Cusco.

About Culture.
You must know that along all Cusco region including saqsayhuman Archaeological Park (it means the surroundings of Cusco) are spread many of archaeological places. As shrines, walls, sacred rocks (huacas), ceremonial places.  
The matter of problem is that many of the best climbing routes, are located close or even into archaeological areas, remains of the great Inca Culture with huge Cultural and historical value, so the institution in charge or archaeological places in Peru is the Ministry of Culture that give laws as “the general law of cultural patrimony of nation Nº 28296”, puts guards and advises forbidding rock climbing and other outdoor activities into archaeological places. If they found you climbing, they will command you to go away.
actually the next routes were shut: the school, nomos, la garganta, el balcon del diablo. La curva. Zona x, because proximity to archaeological places and new excavations now climbing in those areas developed in clandestinely.
If you climb in the surroundings of cusco I recommend:
  • Respect the environment.
  • Preferably be accompanied by an experienced guide.
  • Never climb next or in archaeological areas.
  • Chose isolated climbing routes.
  • Use Crash pads.
