    Besides Machu Picchu, the other ruins in Cusco and Sacred Valley are amazing; the views all around are beautiful; the landscape is very diverse and colorful; the mountains are very impressive; the cloud forest has incredibly green and lush vegetation... It is such a beautiful country! Color, color, color is everywhere: in the amazing textiles they create, in the clothing ...

    If I were going back to Maccu Picchu, I would spend less time in Cusco and make Ollantaytambo my home base. It's a beautiful little town, with winding stone alleyways and surprisingly few tourists. The ruins are nice and definitely worth a visit, but if you want to slow down and experience life in Peru, spend time in the old ...

    Be in the centre of the circles and receive the positive energy! Abt 45 mins drive from Cusco city. On the way down, just be careful and don't mis-step. Some of the inca steps are gap too wide or too high apart.

    I trekked the Inca Trail with this local company and had a great time. The local guides were enthusiastic and had studied up on history and culture, which made the walk more educational and enlightening. The cooks and porters were also awesome, even when a few in our group got altitude sickness and lagged behind.

    Located near the remote town of Cachora, Choquequirao offers a mystical alternative to the hustle and bustle of Machu Picchu. The holy Inca city, built high in the mountains (10,100 feet), is theorized to be one of the last bastions of defense against the Spanish in the Vilcabamba region, which was the hiding place of the last Inca King, Manco ...

    I couldn't really visit the church when I was there because it was under construction but I still got to see the Inca wall from the 12th century, that was a part of Inca Manco Capac's house before they built the church on top of it. Like all other Inca walls, the rocks fit perfectly into each other and it ...

    Q'enko is a marine rock formation, found on the hills around Cusco, which indicates that one day, it was covered by sea. This rock has a chamber within it, caused by water erosion and it was used during the inca time for children sacrifices for when it didn't rain for too long.

    The Plaza de Armas is the main square of Cusco and it's where you'll find a great amount of restaurants, shops, money exchange booths, hostels, bars, pubs, drugstores and souvenir shops. It's also where the Cusco Cathedral is located and most likely a mandatory spot to visit at night, since all main roads start from there. The square is beautifully ...

    San Blas area of Cusco is much quieter than the main square but filled with ancient Inca streets and a mixture of Spanish colonial homes. Many locals referred to it as the art district. There are some nicer hotels in this district as well because they get the stunning views of Plaza de Armas from the hillside.

    For a colorful glimpse of culture, I usually like scouring the markets of any given city or town. Here in Pisac, Peru, it was no different. The vibrant market, which I was told runs Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, was a lot of fun to stroll. We took a bus from our hotel in the Sacred Valley, and immediately upon disembarking ...

    Qurikancha, Coricancha...so many different spellings! This was once the most important temple, dedicated to Inti, the sun god. The walls and the floor were covered in gold, but the gold was used to pay the ransom for Atahualpa (whom they killed anyway). The stones were then used to build the Convent of Santo Domingo which is on that same site. ...

    My absolute favorite public food market in the entire world! A must visit for foodies and adventurous travelers in Cusco. We saw some pretty interesting things there including someone selling pickled snakes, an indigenous shaman selling what looked like blood (but turned out to be Sangre de Drago, a rich red Amazonian tree sap that is thought to cure whatever ...

    It was wonderful to see ancient Inca artifacts but the museum lacked some important things for tourists. At first the descriptions were written in Spanish and then in English, but as we walked through the museum we saw less and less written descriptions next to the artifacts and even less translated into English. Most people visiting the museum did speak ...

    When I came across Qoricancha I couldn't stop staring at it and saying how beautiful it was. Qoricancha was the temple of the sun in the low city (the other one was Saqsaywaman) and on top of it the Spanish built the church of Santo Domingo. The dominicans covered the stone walls with plaster, but in 1950, the great earthquake ...
