TOUR TO THE SACRED VALLEY

The Sacred Valley of the Inkas contains the villages of Pisaq and Ollantaytambo and can be accessed by the city of Cusco. This valley possesses geographic and climatic qualities that provide good advantage to the Inkas. The Inkas converted the valley into one of the principal points of agricultural production due to the richness of its land; apart from this, the valley is the place where the best corn grain is produced in Perú. Likewise, the valley contains archaeological monuments and various indigenous communities.

The Sacred Valley of the Inkas contains a historical richness that isn’t matched, as well as three of the most important artisan markets in Cusco: Pisaq, Ollantaytambo, and Chinchero. Its history is very important, and the valley itself is one of the most in Perú; the region of Urubamba offers a variety of touristic attractions, including thermal baths, boating and kayaking, rafting, paragliding, trekking, horse-back riding, mountain-climbing, amongst others.

At an altitude of 2,800 meters above sea level and with an enjoyable climate despite high temperatures and a high amount of vegetation, the valley is free of mosquitos due to the altitude; we recommend spending a night in the heart of the Sacred Valley in Ollantaytambo – called The Living City.

08:00-08:30 AM We will personally pick you up from your hotel in Cusco and then take transportation via an asphalted highway towards the Sacred Valley of the Inkas; during the trajectory to this valley – which had a great transcendence in the Inka culture – we will be able to see typical villages, snowy mountains, agricultural terraces, markets that sell artisan items, and archaeological sites. First, we will visit the archaeological park of Pisaq which is situated in the peak of the mountain; this wonderful place contains groups of agricultural terraces and dispersed architectural structures on the hillside. After the archaeological complex, we will visit the typical artisan market of Pisaq – a colorful place that exhibits a grand variety of typical artisan items made by the hands of their same artisan craftsman; the most skillful looking pieces of artisan craft are ceramics and textiles. Once in this place, you will have free time on your own account to make purchases if you like before continuing our excursion. We will continue our excursion passing through the villages of the Sacred Valley; some of those villages are Coya, Lamay, Calca, Yucay, and Urubamba. Passing through these villages, we will see beautiful flowers, as well as wildlife, until arriving to Urubamba where we will then enjoy a lunch buffet in a restaurant that sells typical food of the area. Continuing, we will head to Ollantaytambo (the Living Inka City) where we will visit the archaeological park that is one of the most important and most beautiful in the Sacred Valley; this place is an administrative, political, and religious center that is permeated with streets, plazas, and Inka temples. Regarding the park, even throughout the years it still continues being inhabited by generations of people who maintain Inka traditions and customs. After our visit, we will find accommodation in our hotel that is found in Ollantaytambo.
