At more than 3,700 meters above sea level, over a gorge on the Apurimac River in the region of Cusco, this completely hand-woven rope bridge has stood for at least 600 years thanks to an Inca tradition passed down from generation to generation.
Through a ritual that takes place every June, the Q’eswachaka has managed to become the only Inca bridge in use that has survived modern times.
