South Valley tour

The South Valley tour Cusco, is promoting the southern regions of Cusco up to Puno. This tour will explore the archeological site of Raqchi near Vilcanota river.  Like most of the Inca ruins there is a meaning behind being for the Raqchi a tribute to Wiracocha. Another temple we will be visiting is in Tipon near Puno.  In Tipon, there is an Inca irrigation system used for agricultural purposes.  During the South Valley tour Cusco, you will be visiting the Pre-Inca site of Piquillacta built by the Wari culture and the colonial Sistine Chapel of the Americas, in Andahuaylillas.

Something of a culinary interest during South valley tour, Cusco,  is that as we are passing several villages all of them have a good reputation on their organic gastronomy festivals.

Likewise Chefs from Lima are promoting peruvian cuisine in restaurants abroad,  the Andean chefs are promoting local dishes (based vegetables, legumes and grains) to foreign people who are coming over to visit this towns.  The South Valley tour, Cusco will keep you very well entrained from visiting different landscapes, Inca sites and a taste of new dishes too.
