Several traditional villages dot the landscape, and a handful of treasured Inca ruins sit nestled within the sacred valley’s winding hills. The main attractions here include the towns and corresponding ruin sites of Pisac, Chinchero and Ollantaytambo. From tours of the Inca ruins and outdoor adventure-sport activities to shopping in artisan markets and indigenous cultural immersion, the Sacred Valley Tour offers a range of pursuits.
The tour starts with the hotel pick-up between 08:00 a.m. to 08:30 a.m. and then we head on our tourist bus to the northwestern part of the city through picturesque villages until we reach the viewpoint of Corao from where we will have a preliminary view of the entire Sacred Valley and the imposing snow-capped peaks that protect the place.
The first archaeological center that we will visit will be Pisac (Andean partridge) which we will access through a paved road. As we ascend, we will be able to appreciate the impressive Inca platforms that border the mountains, giving us the impression of being part of the mountains. The places we will visit inside Pisac will be the religious sector made up of temples, the urban sector, the Inca cemetery and finally the agricultural terraces. Then we will descend to the town of Pisac.
We will continue our journey to Ollantaytambo, making a stop in the town of Urubamba where you can have lunch (not included in the tour), before continuing the journey to Ollantaytambo ancient resting place and called as “The Inca city living “since you can still see houses with Inca bases inhabited by the inhabitants. The most important place is the Temple of the Sun which is in the highest part of the archaeological center. It is accessed through hundreds of stairs for which we will have to make a little effort, but it will be worth it since the view from this place is indescribable. We will end the tour returning to the city of Cusco visiting Chinchero, a beautiful town that houses platforms and a beautiful colonial church, which has impressive canvases and altarpieces from the Cusco school. We will be back in the city approximately between 7:00 pm and 7:30 pm.
