Qhapaq Nan was the main road network of Inca Empire which, from the city of Cuzco, capital of the Empire, integrated Tawantinsuyo territory, which encompassed what actually is the South of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Northern Argentina.

Roads were part of and connected Cusco with all populations and complementary centers for commerce, trade, production and worship, built along the four regions of Inca Empire: Chinchaysuyu in North, Antisuyu in the East, Kuntisuyu in the West and Qollasuyu in the South.

Qhapaq Ñan is deemed single success of engineering techniques that have been developed by the Andean pre-Hispanic civilizations. Inca road is included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
