Sacred Valley edit

The Sacred Valley of the Incas (Spanish: Valle Sagrado de los Incas; Quechua: Willka Qhichwa), or the Urubamba Valley, is a valley in the Andes of Peru, 20 kilometres (12 mi) at its closest north of the Inca capital of Cusco. It is located in the present-day Peruvian region of Cusco. In colonial documents it was referred to as the "Valley of Yucay." The Sacred Valley was incorporated slowly into the incipient Inca Empire during the period from 1000 to 1400 CE.The Sacred Valley is a major tourist destination. In 2013, 1.2 million people, 800,000 of them non-Peruvians, are estimated to have visited Machu Picchu, its most famous archaeological site. Many of the same tourists also visited other archaeological sites and modern towns in the Sacred Valley.

  • Les comento un poco sobre el Valle Sagrado de los Incas a donde estuve hace unos dos meses: Se encuentra en el departamento del Cusco, entre los pueblos de Písac y Chinchero, a 2850 msnm. Surcado de un extremo al otro por el río Vilcanota-Urubamba, se pueden encontrar pueblos como Písac, Calca, Yúcay, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, e impresionantes hoteles como el Tambo del Inka, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa. Aquí me hospedé y les puedo decir que degusté una exquisita comida novoandina, un completo servicio de spa y hasta tomé servicios de tours de aventura. Es decir, un hotel 5 estrellas enclavado en la naturaleza circundante que le concede al visitante la posibilidad de conocer “in situ” las grandezas de los Andes.
