Sacred Valley of the Incas, Pisac, Awanacancha & Ollantaytambo Tour

337 reviews
Machu Picchu often overshadows the rest of Cusco’s Inca ruins, which are equally ancient and far less crowded. Tick off Sacred Valley’s highlights in limited time on a day trip from Cusco—the perfect choice for history buffs and first-time visitors. Travel with ease between dispersed attractions such as Ollantaytambo Fortress and Pisac Market, where you have time to browse for souvenirs.

The Patacancha valley is high up the Andes at a great elevation but is incredibly beautiful. There are native communities of people living up there, who are very friendly. It is worth a visit to get a taste of the rural life.

Combis go regularly from Ollantaytambo to Patacancha. On Sunday, there is a small rural market in Huilloc in the morning, then in Patacancha after noon. No tourists at all ! Patacancha itself is not very scenic, but you can hike higher on the trail that comes from Lares (Lares trek), climbing high on the hillside on your right then in a secondary valley for large lama flocks, a remote rural community, a lake after 2 hours or so then possibly the pass a bit further. Beware the hike starts at 3800 meter to 4400 meter.

Hiking in the Patacancha valley was one of the most pleasant days of our 5-week trip to South America. We visited the Pumamarca ruins, but I'm sure it's possible to take other trips, too. The views of mountains, agricultural terraces, farms, animals were wonderful and it was a beautiful day in the nature. It felt special and off the beaten track. Definitely a nice way to spend an extra day in the Sacred Valley.

As part of a day tour we came here and spent around 2 hours. It is a very interesting archeological site, and well preserved. It’s not for the unfit however, there are hundreds of steps to climb, but worth it. The views are amazing from the top. The terraces are incredible as is the unfinished temple on the top. We liked especially the small village area and fountains at the bottom. It helped us to have a guide to explain everything, it 8 am sure there is good information provided. Defiantly worth a visit and a good precursor to Manchu Picchu!!
