    All about the Sóndor – Pacucha Lagoon.

    Sondor appears named by the chroniclers as an Inca site, but the first results of the restoration, conservation and research work affirm that the place mixes evidences of Chanka Inca cultures.

    The Archaeological Complex, of ten hectares, is located in the district of Pacucha, thirty minutes from Andahuaylas. According to the studies, it presents architectural elements of a monumental nature. The connoisseurs refer that these remains contain many unknowns whose answers can explain the causes of the fall of the Chanka culture before the Incas.

    According to the research carried out by the San Cristóbal de Huamanga University, Sondor was a place where there were religious activities; hence the location and shape of its central pyramid and its strategic vision towards the Pacucha lagoon.

    The first discovery is Muyu Muyu, the sacred promontory of Sondor, which has restored staircases and terraces. Climbing the 500 steps to reach the top of the so-called central pyramid has interesting rewards: a huaca where human sacrifices were presumably practiced. As background of this scenario, you can enjoy a bucolic view of the Pacucha lagoon and the fields. In addition to the profile of an Andean deity: the “apu ausangate” of Cusco.

    In the ruins of Sondor the epic Chanka is represented, in which its leader Anccohuayllo was the one who, faced with the danger that the Incas represented for his people, decided to march on Cusco
