Exploring the Cusco Surroundings

Cusco – the beautiful city, nestled in the Andes in Southern Peru – is the perfect starting point for hikes and visit to interesting Inca sites and beautiful nature. While traveling to the Sacred Valley or the Southern Valley, you can’t stop wondering about the impressive architecture of the Inca culture. Here are some tips for Exploring the Cusco surroundings.

Interesting Facts For your visit to the Sacred Valley in Cusco
February 10, 2016 - Posted by

Omdat dit al m’n derde keer in Peru is en in Cusco ben ik geneigd te denken dat ik alles al heb gezien en gedaan. Dit is natuurlijk verre van waar. Toen m’n zus en m’n zwager me op kwamen zoeken kreeg ik de kans om samen met hen allerlei beroemde plaatsen in de buurt van Cusco voor het eerst te ontdekken. Zoals ons dagje naar de Sacred Valley of Heilige Vallei van de Incas, net buiten Cusco. We namen de tijd om alle prachtige plekken te ontdekken; Ollantaytambo, de Salinas, Moray, Chinchero en namen veel foto’s van het spectaculaire kilometerslange uitzicht.

Één van onze leukste dagen begon in Cusco waar we een mini-busje namen vanaf Puento Rosario. Omdat het vakantie was, was het lastig om nog vrije plaatsten te vinden maar al snel waren we onderweg richting de steile hellingen en de ongelooflijke uitzichten van de sacred valley. (more…)

As this is my third stay in Peru – in Cusco – I am sometimes tempted to think that I’ve seen and done it all. This is, of course, far from the truth. When my sister and brother-in-law decided to come visit me, I got the chance to explore several famous sites in the surroundings of Cusco with them for the first time, such as the day we spent in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, just outside of the beautiful city of Cusco. We took our time and lots of pictures, and got to explore Ollantaytambo, the Salinas, Moray, Chinchero and many miles of spectacular scenery in between.

One of our nicest days started in Cusco where we took a combi (a mini-van) from Puento Rosario, in Cusco. As it was a holiday, seats weren’t easy to find, but we were soon on our way out of the city toward the steep hillsides and incredible views of the Sacred Valley. (more…)
