Machu Picchu & Sacred Valley
Machu Picchu & Sacred Valley, Peru
- 10 h 30 m
This route first takes us to Ollantaytambo, also known as the “living Inca city”. From there we travel to the archaeological site of Moray, a laboratory of experimental farming where different microclimates are used to grow crops. From here we continue to Maras and a large lagoon, an ideal place to take a stroll and have lunch, to then follow to the town of Chinchero. The road crosses several fields where we will see farmers working or looking after their animals.
This zone showcases the valley’s verticality – a pivotal component around which the Incas developed their particular cosmovision.
