This day begins with a tour of Chinchero Town. Here, you’ll get to amaze yourself with the picturesque views that surround this authentic slice of the Andes Mountains. On weekends, the main plaza of the town becomes a hub for artisans to gather and sell their wares.
Following that, we’ll head to the Maras Salt Pans. This impressive site offers visitors breathtaking views that consist of countless terraces where salt (which is extracted from nearby springs) is produced. It takes about a month for the terraces to produce thick, crystalized salt that varies in color.
After a delicious lunch buffet at the Tunupa Restaurant in the Sacred Valley, we’ll head onwards to the Ollantaytambo Fortress. This fantastic site was constructed with the purpose of guarding the valley and preventing invasions from other tribes. Here, you’ll get to learn about some of the most important aspects of the Inca Empire’s history and culture.
After this visit, we’ll transfer you to the train station where you’ll begin your journey to majestic Machu Picchu.
When you arrive in Machu Picchu Town (Aguas Calientes), we’ll transfer you to Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel. Overnight in Aguas Calientes.
