Full description
Spend the day visiting archaeological sites and getting to know the mysterious Incan civilization on this day trip from Cusco. Visit the Sacred Valley with stops in Chinchero, Maras, and Moray. Meet your guide in Cusco and depart for Chinchero. Chinchero was an important town of the Incan Empire and is located on a terrace at about 3500 meters above sea level. The beautiful Andean landscape surrounds the town, with Chincero being framed by the calm beauty of the Chicón and Verónica snow-capped mountains. Every Sunday, the town becomes a trade center for products from the neighboring communities. After visiting Chinchero, go to the archaeological sites in Maras and Moray.
