DAY 1

CUSCO – SACRED VALLEY, L

FLIGHT TO CUSCO, WELCOME & VISIT PISAC MARKET AND RUINS

Upon your arrival, our tour guide in Cusco will be there to welcome and take you to Awanacancha center, that promotes, retrieves, and revalues the ancient techniques of weaving, dyeing, management and production of camelids fibers. This project works together with families of native weavers craftsmen in high Andean native communities; providing for this purpose a unique space in a restored and proper archaeological environment for the promotion, distribution and supply of textiles and related products.
The archaeological site of Pisac is located on top of a hill in front of the Sacred Valley. It is made up of groups of platforms and architectural structures scattered on the slopes and on top of the hill. According to the archaeologist and ethno historian John Rowe, Pisac has been part of the heritage of the Inca Pachacutec, who may have ordered its construction. Due to its location and its particular characteristics, we can say it was an Incan center of great importance. In the afternoon, you will be taken to a tourist restaurant situated in the valley, and where lunch will be served; then you will be taken back to your hotel where you have the rest of time to relax.

Overnight in the Sacred Valley

DAY 2

SACRED VALLEY, B / L

SACRED VALLEY HIGHLIGHTS - OLLANTAYTAMBO, MARAS & MORAY- VISIT THE FOUNDATION “NIÑOS DEL ARCO IRIS’’

After a rich breakfast in your hotel, you will visit the terraces of Moray that resemble a sunken amphitheater or an artificial crater; when it was built, its walls were filled with fertile earth and watered by complex irrigation systems. Thus, the existing thermal variation between the surface and the bottom of these natural holes was exploited so that each terrace had different varieties of plants (more than 250 plant species) adapted. It is speculated that, from their experience with this kind of greenhouse, the Incas organized agricultural production throughout the Tahuantinsuyo. Las Salinas de Maras, Maras or as it is also called, are salt mines whose exploitation is as old as the Tahuantinsuyo. Located on the hillside, the salt-mines form terraces or platforms that are connected by an irrigation system that feeds the pools of salt with water. Using Maras Salt dates back thousands of years and is inherited in each family, but is managed communally.
After visiting Maras, you will be invited to the Foundation “Niño’s del Arco Iris”, the most important social project in the area that provides education and health care to children and teenagers in extreme poverty. Here you will have a delicious BBQ lunch prepared by a local cook while being in the midst of amazing landscapes.
After lunch, our tour guide will lead you to visit Ollantaytambo ; a finely worked ceremonial center is at the top of the terraces. Some extremely well-built walls were under construction at the time of the conquest and for that have never been completed. The stone was quarried from the mountainside 6km away, high above the opposite bank of the Río Urubamba. For this reason Transporting the huge stone blocks to the site was a great effort. At the end of the day, you will be transferred to your hotel situated in the heart of the Sacred Valley.
