Sacred Valley Tour from Cusco Peru
According to the well-known Incans who ruled this place Cusco "navel of the world".
Examples of fine engineering by Inca stonemasons can be seen in Choquequirao, Saysayhuamán, Kenko, Tambomachay, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, the Inca jewel built with the wisdom of the ancient Peruvians in an ecological environment.
Sacred Valley, where the mountains are clothed by terraces, is about as beautiful as it gets. There are Incan Ruins scattered across green mountain sides on either side of the valley. Machu Picchu is the most well known of the ruins you will see throughout the Sacred Valley. The valley was an ideal place to settle because of the lower elevation, access to water, proximity to Cusco, and rich farming land.
