Sacred Valley of the Incas, Cusco Region

Once at the heart of the Inca Empire, Sacred Valley of the Incas plays home to many of the region's most popular archeological sites, cities, and places to visit. Grab your boots and trek through the area to get an up-close look at the mountain environment via the network of hiking trails and paths. Explore the rugged mountain valley to get a glimpse of Inca fortifications and settlements like Pisac, Moray, Tipon, and Ollantaytambo, which feature terraced hillsides and imposing stone citadels. The valley also boasts a number of quiet villages and colonial-era gems; Cusco is perhaps the best known, but plenty of smaller villages featuring markets and sights of their own line the valley's length. Plan my trip to Urubamba with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • OK it is one of the world wonders, but it is the most complex trip, I have made. So far to get to, so hard to get the tickets, from each other place, transfer-train-bus-entry-guide. ?????  more »
  • To relax and disconnect from everything is a perfect place for rest 1 or 2 days before arriving in Machu Picchu to climb the mountain. The tranquility and serenity are priceless. The sky, the Valley and the River are magical. You have a large number of hotels to stay in the Sacred Valley which has an extension of about 80 kilometers. We stayed in Urubamba at Taypicala Deluxe hotel and everything is beautiful in that hotel. I leave the pictures

  • Fantastic.. Amazing.. Nothing I can wright here will give it justis.. A must See..
  • Beautiful part of the world. The cool, dry weather is perfect for sleeping with the windows open. There are also many places that offer Ayahuasca retreats, which may change your life forever. The 7 days I spent at the Arkana retreat in The Sacred Valley opened my mind and changed my spiritual being.
  • Best MTB Enduro and Downhill trails of my life! Epic mountains, amazing food and people are so nice. If you are looking for an amazing guide and shuttle that will bring you to the best trails I recommend Holy Trails they are perfect!!!
  • I think sacred valley is a great trip to make if you are in Cusco and have a bit of time after going Machu Picchu. It’s worth it and some of the sites in this trip are out of this world. Explains why humans explored so much before they decide to settle in certain spots.
  • Cannot begin to put into words the magic of Peru. Sacred Valley is a place you must visit and will never forget..
