Waqrapukara comes from 2 Quechua voices WAQRA means “Horn” and PUKARA means “Strength”, then it means Fortaleza de los Cuernos, There are observations that indicate that there are no horns in the fortress, but that they are “The Ears of a Flame”.

The tour takes about an hour and a half walk. The difficulty is medium, you can also do cycling in the area because it is suitable for it as well as see lagoons similar to the Humantay lagoon.
