Program

This trail is not for everyone as you need to be fit, manage the horse, well stay in the saddle between five to seven hours daily, be able and prepared to sleep in a simple accommodation along the way, and be resistant to cold mountain weather and high altitude of more than 3000 meters above the sea level. If this is your first time going to the Andes or high mountains, Dharma Consulting recommends getting information about altitude sickness. A few grounding days after your flight to adjust to the climate is recommended.

Location

The tour will take place in Peru. The Sacred Valley of the Incas is one of the most important destinations in South America. It houses beautiful traditional towns settled since colonial times like the Maras community. There the Incas built ancient citadels such as Pisac, Ollantaytambo, and Chinchero. They also cultivated a great diversity of agricultural products on terraces such as Moray. Today, all these places are very attractive tourist attractions for visitors, before or after the visit to Machu Picchu. This valley was a sacred area for the Incas since it comprised an extensive territory very productive for agriculture.

The main products cultivated by the Incas were: corn, potatoes, olluco, quinoa, and coca leaf, considered a sacred plant. Today, agriculture continues to be one of the main activities of the inhabitants of this valley. Due to the vast agricultural activity in the valley, the Incas decided to build their main temples and cities there. The most important urban centers were Pisac, Yucay, Chinchero, and Ollantaytambo. Even further into the jungle, the emperor Pachacutec had a beautiful citadel built to serve as his resting place and border with the jungle villages: Machu Picchu.

The Vilcanota River runs through all the main towns in the valley. The Incas believed that this river was the earthly representation of the Milky Way. The Salkantay and Veronica mountains (considered gods by the Incas) crown the beautiful landscape. Today, the river, the mountains, and the land are still considered sacred by the people of Cusco who inhabit these lands. Many tourists come to the Sacred Valley to learn about its history and beauty.
