Why spend 10 days in the Sacred Valley of the Incas?

Between Machu Picchu, the salineras or the ruins of Pisac, the Sacred Valley of the Incas can easily hold the traveler. We advise you to spend some time there.

Machu Picchu is not enough. Certainly, the Inca city is a must in Peru. But why not linger in the region? In Cusco first. For the visit of the city and also the stroll on its heights, in the middle of the ruins of Sacsayhuamán.

Pisac, Moray and Salinas

From Cusco, organize a short circuit between Pisac, Urubamba and Ollantaytambo. Sleeping in each of these cities, you can quietly take your time to visit the ruins of Pisac, the salinas of Maras and the fascinating terraces of Moray. Last stop (not obligatory), on the high ruins of Ollantaytambo.

From Salkantay to Choquequirao, a wide choice of hikes

Last tip, take a hike in the area. The best way to enjoy the landscapes. Choice of Salkantay, Choquequirao, hike to the colored mountains. The menu is wide and justifies staying ten days in the area. Because, we assure you, you will want to help yourself a second time.

Maras salt flats

If you plan to spend time in the Cusco area, buy the “boleto turistico”.


For 130 soles, you will have access to Sacsayhuamán, the terraces of Moray, the ruins of Pisac or even a few museums in Cusco.


A ticket that quickly pays for itself. For the salinas, however, you will have to pay 10 soles directly on site to access the site.
