8:30 a.m. Pick up from your hotel to begin our tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will be leaving the city and reach the viewpoint of Taray from where we can enjoy the beautiful Inca terraces and existing farmland which surrounds the sacred river of the Incas "Willcamayuc". Later we´ll visit Pisaq the archaeological Park as well as the Native American market which is very colorful, just like the local people!

The Pisaq Andean Market is the best place to shop for crafts and souvenirs. After some free time, we will continue our journey to the village of Urubamba, where we will have lunch at a delicious buffet.

Continuing our journey we´ll reach the last living Inca town "Ollantaytambo". Ollantaytambo reminds us of a mythical love story, a drama of love that prevails against all obstacles. It is believed that this city was built by General Inka Ollanta in a time of rebellion against the Royal army of the Inca by preventing a marriage of the beautiful princess Cusi Qoyllor or "Beautiful Star".

A 40 minute drive takes us to Chinchero. Surrounded by the colonial houses, we will again discover the magnificence of the Incan constructions, terraces and the beauty of the local people in their traditional dress, all surrounded by the local temple where we´ll appreciate the paintings of local people who later where well-known as the creators of the "Escuela Cusqueña" style of painting. There is a colonial church rich in art and jewelry, well appreciated by their population.

Lunch is included on this tour in the town of Urubamba.

We then continue our trek to Markokasa, enjoying the beautiful landscape along the way and our first view of the Salkantay Mountain.

From the pass, the views of the two snow-capped mountains are incredible. There may be a possibility of snow here.

We have lunch on the way to be able to enjoy more of the vibrant valleys following the sacred river for about one and a half hours until the waterfalls from Hydroelectric.

These falls are about twelve meters high and are fed by the crystal clear melt waters of the sacred Mount Yanantin. From the falls, the trail continues up to the ridge before becoming lost in the increasingly dense vegetation. This is a dramatic, fertile landscape, with coffee, banana and avocado plantations carved from the forest and pristine areas that are the natural habitat of mammals such as the spectacled bear and hundreds of species of birds and butterflies, some of them endemic to the region. This teeming forest is hung with bromeliads and many varieties of orchids, some of which have only recently been identified by biologists.
