Patacancha Valley, Ollantaytambo
(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Explore the rolling hillsides and traditional Quechua weaving communities of Patacancha Valley on your Cusco adventure. Life in these villages has remained largely the same over the last century, with farming, cattle raising, and weaving still the main commercial activities in the area. Very little Spanish is spoken here and transport to the area is limited, so do some research before your trip. Plan your Patacancha Valley visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ollantaytambo using our Ollantaytambo vacation builder.
