The Sacred Valley of the Incas is a trip back in time. Breathtaking wide-open spaces with mountain lakes, glaciers, and patchwork fields—many of which are still worked with bull and plow—bring both relief and awe. There are endless routes for hiking and exploring through the incredible scenery of this famous Valley. And moreover, the entire Valley is dotted with ancient ruins and sacred sites, many of them rarely visited.
