Tipón Irrigation Channels

The Inca were brilliant engineers who integrated their architecture with its natural surroundings. Tipon, a 500-acre site built around a spring near Cusco, has been called their masterpiece of water management. Hike the site, and find a perfect spot for a picnic lunch. Tipon has beautiful stone terraces with fountains and irrigation channels that still function, which provides an endless, soothing soundtrack of running water.
