CHINCHERO

One of the Sacred Valley’s only ancient Incan cities that’s higher in elevation that Cusco, Chinchero nowadays is a picturesque village of adobe houses, narrow alleys, and lively plazas. It’s most popular with visitors for its many traditional handicrafts and markets; the Sunday market is the largest, with farmers and artisans from around the region coming to sell their produce and textiles. The town is also known for its woven goods, with several workshops open for visits.

MACHU PICCHU (AND HUAYNA PICCHU)
Machu-Picchu_700x380

A breathtaking sanctuary built by the Incas in the 15th century and rediscovered in 1911, Machu Picchu is one of the most magnificent ruins on earth. High in the Andes, ancient pathways lead to stone walls and agricultural terraces surround a citadel filled with the ruins of temples and watchtowers. For an even more impressive experience, climb the adjacent green peak, Huayna Picchu, and look down on Machu Picchu with a bird’s eye view.

OLLANTAYTAMBO ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK

The Valley of the Incas is filled with dramatic ruins and impressive archaeological sites set amidst postcard-perfect scenery, but one of the most impressive in the Urubamba region is now known as the Ollantaytambo Archaeological Park. An architectural marvel in its own right, this city was also a sacred site, with one of the area’s most important temples.

PISAC

An adventure in two parts, Pisac encompasses both the currently inhabited town and the ruins of its predecessor. Perched even higher in the Andes than the current town, the ruins are those of an ancient Incan fortress destroyed by 16th-century conquistadors; carved directly into the rock, its pathways and temples demonstrate skilled masonry. Below sits the lively market town that inherited its cultural legacy.

SACRED VALLEY

One of the world’s most famously beautiful stretches of unspoilt land, the Sacred Valley of the Incas attracts outdoor adventurers to its soaring mountains, pristine lakes, powerful rivers, and green meadows. Explore the lands of the former Inca Empire by trekking or mountain biking, go white-water rafting down the Urubamba River, kayak across high-altitude lakes, and visit ancient villages and Incan ruins.
