Private tours Cusco TiponYou can admire several royal rooms that was built by the Inca Wiracocha as a house and shelter for his father Yawar Wakaq who returned after the war against the Chankas. This group of village is at 3500m. Besides there is a big area to cultivate with walls built with stones perfectly carved. Even more impressive is the irrigation system that is still used by the farmers today. The advantage is the water captured in the spring season. The river is channeled by some carved stones that have been accurately calculated, they sometimes form falls almost vertical composing an excellent hydraulic engineering work. Some of the fountains must have served as ceremonial purposes. Due to its location and the existence of a round wall, Tipon must have been a very exclusive place interdependent to other sectors such as "Intiwatana" to the west, "Pukutuyoq", "Pukara", "Hatun Wayko", etc.
