An excursion to Inca market in the town of Pisac provides visitors with the opportunity to barter for local products to take home as gifts or reminders of their holiday. The market is on three days, but visiting on a Sunday allows visitors to witness the local dignitaries and Mayors from the villages in the region dressed in their full regalia for Sunday mass. Visitors can then hike up to ruins at the top of the hill.
In addition to many hiking tours, visitors on the excursion to Lamay will have the opportunity to walk over the Lamay bridge. A hike up to the historical ruins above the village is considered very strenuous and usually takes around two and a half hours. The excursion party then hikes past the ruins and a reservoir and then on down to Calca.
