Highlights

02 Day – “Exploring the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu”

The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour are ideal for those with limited time but looking to explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas as much as possible. Above all, accompanied by a professional guide, you will visit a few of the most important ancient sites of Sacred Valley. For example, Chinchero & Textile Center, Maras Salt Mines, the test center of agriculture known as Moray. Most importantly, visit the Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu.

Certainly, departures are available any day, all year long. A minimum of 02 people is required to embark on this journey of exploration through these important historical sites.

Itinerary

DAY 1: CUSCO – CHINCHERO – MARAS & MORAY

After your hotel pickup around 8:00 am, we will drive to Chinchero to start The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour. So, our first visit will be to the main square, filled with its well-preserved Inka walls and altars. Then, our next visit will be to the Textile Center for the introduction and learning experience of the art of Andean textiles. Local weavers will guide you through a step-by-step process of the ancient science of Andean weaving as it has been done time before the Incas.

Consequently, we will pass through lush agricultural fields and small rural communities. So, weather permitting, spectacular views of snow-capped peaks line the horizon far into the distance. Likewise, our next stop is Moray and its panoramic terraces of concentric rings. To clarify, it has been proven to be a test center for understanding the various climates and temperatures of different crops or agricultural plants, perhaps even used for the domestication of different vegetables.

After that, we will descend lower in elevation to the salt mines of Maras, a vital production center dating back to pre-Inca times. Similarly, there are over 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountainside, filled daily by water seeping from the Earth, what we call the tears of Mother Earth!. Consequently, in the afternoon, our train will depart from Ollantaytambo train station to Aguas Calientes town. Finally, you have the option of visiting machu picchu hot springs before retiring to your hotel.

Places visited:

  • Chinchero
  • Textile Center
  • Moray

DAY 2: MACHU PICCHU – CUSCO

Firstly, we will meet at sunrise for breakfast, then, head to the bus station to take the first buses up to the majestic Citadel of Machu Picchu, also known as the “The Crystal City”. So, we recommend arriving early enough to catch sunrise before receiving a guided tour which lasts about 2 hours. Therefore, if booked in advance, we will arrange for you to climb Machu Picchu Mountain or Huayna Picchu Mountain. Consequently, we will agree on a time to meet in the afternoon in Aguas Calientes to board the train back to Ollantaytambo. Then, a private bus or van back to Cusco and back to your hotel so we have culminated our The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu Tour.
