Picchu, the valley has become a destination in its own right.

place to browse woven blankets, tapestries, and alpaca garments such as sweaters and
mittens, colorful fabric, and accessories found in abundance at the market in addition to
pottery, jewelry, and other handicrafts. Then head to the town of Pisac Inca Ruins,
famous for its ruins, which lie atop a hill at the entrance of the valley. It’s not hard to
succumb to the charms of sunny Pisac, a bustling colonial village at the base of a
spectacular Inca fortress perched on a mountain spur. Its pull is universal and recent
years have seen an influx of ex-pats and new age followers in search of an Andean
Shangri-La. Located just 33km northeast of Cusco by a paved road, it’s the most
convenient starting point to the Sacred Valley.

to the lower Urubamba Valley. The temple area is at the top of steep terracing which

Explorer Machu Picchu citadel
Machu Picchu represents the most famous archaeological site in all of South America
and one of the most-visited sites worldwide that captivate all who visit it with its beauty
The spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills, and plazas remain the mountain top
citadel of the Inca under Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, until the coming of the
Europeans with Pizarro.
It may boast the most familiar name, but Machu Picchu has refused to reveal many of
its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction, function, and demise. US historian
Hiram Bingham discovered the overgrown ruins in 1911, and the quality of the
stonework hints that it was an extremely significant ceremonial site.
The remains are thought to date from around 1450, built at the height of the Inca Empire,
and as they escaped being plundered by the Spanish, they include semi-intact icons and
shrines that were defaced or removed at other sites. Entering the site, a set of steps leads
to the ruined Temple of the Sun and a series of altars and niches. Highlights include the
remains of ceremonial baths, the Sacred Plaza with its tremendous views.
Today you will enjoy further Private Guided Tours of Machu Picchu. You may start at
Dawn or as you wish. All tours are included and you are only limited by your time and
The Sun Gate (2 Hours) - The Sun Gate marks the entrance to Machu Picchu. It is a
one-hour uphill hike to the southeast of the Sanctuary, climbing more than 300 meters.

view from the gate.
Machu Picchu Mountain (4 to 5 Hours Roundtrip) - The hike to the summit of Apu
Machu Picchu is 2 ½ hours and can be relatively steep in places. This trail, accessed
from Machu Picchu, joins parts of the Inca trail leading to the Sun Gate before climbing
to the mountain's highest point. From there, enjoy the view of soaring eagles as well as
Machu Picchu and other significant ruins in the area, such as Putukusi, Huayna Picchu,
Salkantay Mountain, and the Vilcanota River view.
This is a breathtaking hike, with lots of orchids along the way, birds in the bushy areas,
and with every stop, the view gets better and better. The climb is 600 meters uphill, so
a reasonable level of fitness is required.

Inka Bridge (Bridge 1 Hour Round Trip) This hike is to the south-west of Machu
Picchu, a nice unknown trail that overlooks the Aobamba valley and the Hydroelectric
plant. The Inca Bridge is a part of a mountain trail that heads west from Machu Picchu.
The trail is a stone path, part of which is cut into a cliff face. A twenty-foot gap was
caused in this section. A 1,900 feet drop that could be bridged with two tree trunks.
When the tree trunks were removed then the trail became impassable to outsiders. The
path is narrow and paved with original Inca stones.
Huayna Picchu (3 - 4 Hours) - Is the mountain you see behind Machu Picchu.
Towering above the north end of Machu Picchu this steep mountain is repeatedly seen
as the backdrop to the classic photos of the ruins. The mountain is steep, but stone steps
are laid along most of the way, and where the mountain is steeper you will find steel
cables used as handrails. For fit people, it is not an arduous climb.

church that houses a large collection of painting from the Cusquenian School of Art.
The following stop on your tour will be Maras, a picturesque town surrounded by
stunning mountain landscapes, which has given its name to the Salineras, or salt pans,
located here. These salt mines are evaporation ponds that have been used to produce salt
since the pre-Inca times. The natural color variation of the pools is staggered in terraces
down the side of the canyon. It is a breathtaking sight. You'll be able to perceive them
in all their glory from the viewpoint.
