THE ROUTE OF THE RIVER 

Significance behind the images 

 

The river was channeled in Inca times and has left its mark. The path starts from Aqokqasa hill; above the road the site of Tunasmoqo is recognized. 

This particular image is really interesting, as it signifies the original movement/route of the river. The original route of the river was much wider (The area between the two arrows), while the current route is as can be seen in the image above (Slide for the labeled image). Over time, it had been moved by the Incas, so the incas had all the remaining surface to use for vegetation and to grow food. This image is truly significant as far as landscape planning goes.
