Explore ruins in the Sacred Valley, learn about traditional ways of life and visit local markets, conquer the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. One of our most popular trips in the region for those looking to combine the cultural highlights of the Sacred Valley with the challenge of one of the world s best known hikes. Cusco is the continent s oldest continuously inhabited city, and the hub of the South American travel network. The city attracts travellers who come not just to visit a unique destination but also to experience an age-old culture very different from their 20th century way of life; one could easily spend a week just in and around the area. Inca-built stone walls line most of the central streets and you don't have to go far to see other major Inca ruins. It is a city steeped in history, tradition and legend. Every year Cusco attracts thousands of travellers who come to delve into its noble but tragic past. It is the perfect base for optional explorations around the city and area as well as a range of outdoor activities. This book offers information on Sacred Valley of the Incas.
