As a part of your Inca Trail Express to Machu Picchu 5 days trip, we will travel to the Sacred Valley. As you may know, The Inca Trail is one of the most famous trails worldwide and begins at some point within this Sacred Valley. The Sacred Valley is one of the most representative and beautiful landscapes of Cusco.
We need to leave Cusco during the morning time at around 08:00 am and head towards Pisac village. We have chosen this location as part of our Inca Trail Express to Machu Picchu 5 days because Pisac offers you a fantastic artisans market and a well preserved Inca architecture of the same name as the village. The artisans market is worthy to visit as all the hand made products are using organic materials, very well made and designed.
After being in Pisac market, the Inca ruins in this valley of Pisac are awaiting our visit. We will head up on private transport and to have also a panoramic view of this impressive and beautiful Sacred Valley.
If visiting Pisac liked you, then Ollantaytambo will not be less. We are leaving Pisac in the direction to Ollantaytambo but before getting to our final destination, we will have a lunch break (not included) on the way.
The Ollantaytambo Inca site shows you the magnificent temple of the sun. This Inca tour shows you also the enormous blocks of rock perfectly carved and polished, stone water fountains, stairs and terraces.
Looking at the people of Ollantaytambo, you will notice, their pride in keeping their traditions reflected in their beautifully wearing of typical dresses. This village is surrounded by its local sacred mountains and Valleys.
Finished our journey to Ollantaytambo, we will be visiting Chinchero market and then return to Cusco at about 18:30-19:00 hours.
