Ayar Cachi (in hispanicized spelling) or Ayar Kachi (kachi means salt in Quechua )[1][2] was one of the brothers of Manco Cápac, who emerged from the cave at Paqariq Tampu. He could shoot down hills with a single shot of his sling.

His brothers feared him, so he was sent back to the cave they came from and trapped in it with rocks.[3]
