Peru: Tour Lima - the Incas' Sacred Valley, Cusco & Machu Picchu - Lima

Sacred Valley of the Incas and experience with Inca Culture

07 Days/06 Nights   January to December   Moderate

The Sacred Valley of the Incas: in the Peruvian Andes, is made up of numerous rivers that descend by gorges and small valleys; It has numerous archaeological monuments and indigenous towns. This valley was very appreciated by the Incas due to its special geographical and climatic qualities.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas (Spanish: Valle Sagrado de los Incas; Quechua: Willka Qhichwa) or the Urubamba Valley is a valley in the Andes of Peru, 20 kilometres (12 mi) at its closest north of the Inca capital of Cusco. It is located in the present-day Peruvian region of Cusco. In colonial documents it was referred to as the "Valley of Yucay." The Sacred Valley was incorporated slowly into the incipient Inca Empire during the period from 1000 to 1400 CE.

The scenic and historical Sacred Valley is a major tourist destination. In 2013, 1.2 million people, 800,000 of them non-Peruvians, are estimated to have visited Machu Picchu, its most famous archaeological site. Many of the same tourists also visited other archaeological sites and modern towns in the Sacred Valley.
