I know it isn't Machu Picchu, but this is another great trip to make while in the area. We made 3 different stops in the Sacred Valley and were able to walk around the ruins in all 3 spots. Highlight of the trip was going to a village (I know it was a little bit of a tourist trap--they had... More

The Moray is a series of circular depressions in the ground,,,,,theory is it may have been like a research area for the Inca to grow and test crops. Either way the site was very interesting and fairly easy to walk around and through. 1-2 hours is all that would be needed at this location, but it takes about 1 hour... More

Within this small area, we saw several examples of the sophistication of Incan technology. The salt mines are amazing. Terraced into a hillside, the pools allow the water from a salty spring to evaporate leaving behind a wide range of salts which are for sale. In Moray we saw the huge circular agricultural terraces. The Incans used them to test... More

Bird's eye view of the surrounding Andean mountains and the Amazon forest. Makes you wonder how the Incas lived and thrived in the harsh mountainous regions!

Ollantaytambo was the starting point of our trek. We spent a day here before setting off on the hike exploring some beautiful Inca ruins. For the few days we were in Cusco before the hike, it was beautifully sunny and very hot. On this day however, the weather took a turn for the worst. It was pouring with rain and... More
