The Sacred Valley
Exploring The Heartland Of The Inca
Nestled deep within the Andes of Peru, the beautiful Rio Urubamba Valley - better known as the Sacred Valley - starts about 9 miles (15km) north of the ancient Incan capital of Cusco and stretches all the way to Ollantaytambo. The Sacred Valley was a key site for the Incas because of its fertile soil and favorable climate. It is home to many important ruins, markets, and towns en route from Cusco to Machu Picchu that shouldn't be missed.
