The Southern Valley of Cusco
, the valley that also provides the route towards Puno. The trip covers a distance of around 45km, and you can also appreciate local towns and villages en-route, that stand out for their beautiful countryside and setting, as well as untouched culture and cuisine. For example, we go through Saylla, known as the land of chicarrón, one of Peru's staple dishes.
According to those who live there, the quality of water they have in the area makes the dish of the best quality, better than that of Cusco
, and they are offered on street corners, restaurants and some open houses.
We also go through the town of Tipón, which is famous for both its archaeological site and its roast guinea pig.
Another famous place en-route is Oropesa, the birthplace of typical Cusqueñan, where more than 200 large ovens work day and night to produce over 25 different varieties.
We will also visit the town of Andahuaylillas, a very welcoming small town, with a healthy warm climate as consequence of being surrounded by mountains on the left bank of the "Vilcanota" river. We visit the town's famous church known as the Sistine Chapel of America, due to the beauty of its mural paintings.
