DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN CUSCO – INCA MUSEUM AND KORICANCHA

Firstly, a shuttle from the airport to the hotel. The rest of the morning will be reserved for resting to adapt to the altitude, approximately 3400 meters (11,000 feet). In the afternoon, we will visit the Inka Museum, home of thousands of years of Andean culture. Here we will become more familiar with the origins and beginnings of Andean civilizations.

Consequently, we will move onto the temple of Qoricancha, the famous Sun Temple of Qosqo, which was and remained the pinnacle of organization, architecture, and religion of Inka civilization. During, its construction, they had already achieved the most significant advances of their time, and this temple may have been the exact representation of the center, or “Navel of the World” and therefore the center of the world, as dictated by the pre-hispanic Andean cosmovision.

DAY 2: SAQSAYHUAMAN – TAMBOMACHAY AND TEMPLE OF THE MOON – TRANSFER TO AGUAS CALIENTES

Certainly, we will begin our day with the journey to Saqsayhuaman. This Inka architecture, with its magnificent qualities and colossal stones, is considered in humanity’s history, one of the most exceptional constructions on the face of the Earth. So, from here, we will continue to the Temple of the Moon, a place for spiritual connection and encounter with the feminine energy of the Moon Goddess.

Places that are visited:

  • Sacsayhuaman.
  • Tambomachay.
  • Temple of the moon.

Subsequently, we will travel by car to the town of Ollantaytambo to the train station for our transfer to the town of Machu Picchu (Aguas Calientes).

DAY 3: MACHU PICCHU

DAY 4: AGUAS CALIENTES- OLLANTAYTAMBO – MORAY-SALT MINES

In the morning we will return to “living” Inka town of Ollantaytambo by train and continue to visit the Inka town of Ollantaytambo. During, the morning visit the “living” Inka town of Ollantaytambo before continuing into Moray, an ancient construction designed for agricultural investigations and studies of different crops in a range of altitudes.

Certainly, here the many concentric “rings” of terraces produce a fine gradient of micro-climates. As a result, the warmth of the lowest central ring slowly dissipates as the rings ascend outward and upward, creating reductions in temperatures until reaching the ground-level norm.

When you are done exploring Moray, you will head to the salt mines of Maras, which is about 2 miles away. This village is known as a former salt-producing center that is thought to date back to pre-Inca times. There are over 3000 salt pools all carved into the mountainside, being filled daily by a little stream of water.

DAY 5: CHINCHERO (TEXTILE INTERPRETATION CENTER) – CITY WALKING TOUR

Then, we can admire the well-preserved Inca walls of the main square as well as the many altars. Also, we’ll visit the beautiful colonial church, unique for its interior artwork and imagery. Moving on, we’ll participate in a brilliant introduction and learning experience of the art of Andean textiles.

Weather - tours to cusco and machu picchu

¿What is the weather in Cusco?

Certainly, Peru has three main climatic zones: the tropical Amazon jungle to the east, the arid coastal desert to the west, and the Andean mountains and highlands in between.

Therefore, in the Andes, which have altitudes over 3500m. Average daily temperatures are around 10°C (50°F), and overnight temperatures can dip well below freezing. So, travelers flying straight to Cuzco (3250m), or their hight altitude cities, should allow several days to acclimatize since altitude sickness or soroche can be a problem.

As a result, April to November is the dry season in the mountain and Andean Plateau (altiplano). The wettest months are from December to March. It rains al the time in the hot and humid rainforest, but the driest months there are from April from November.
